My oh my that was a great fight. Switching them up like that, very good energetic fight. Rypien landed some nice shots. Win for Rypien and an 8. Thank you for that fellahs, showing the rest how its done! (Sight, Garrett... as a former BCian I don't really miss you very much.)
rypien gets the dominating victory... this guy switches hands and is good at knowing where to take punches (usually off the top of the head or forehead)
it also helps that most guys in the league don't know anything about him
watch his fight with prust!
Rypien may be the best pound-for-pound fighter I've seen, he's smaller than Mike Keane. Watch some of his fights on youtube, against Commodore and Mike Moore he actually blocks punches with his forearms when he gets into toe-to-toe battles.....who does that??? He whooped Carcillo's ass. He's a student of hockey-fighting and reminds me a little of Dody Wood. If he can stay healthy he's gonna be a force.
Got to give it to Rypien in this one, he's a killer. I love how he can throw them equally well with both hands. I should say that I would give Ripper extra credit for going up in weight class but he dosn't have his own weight class. The kid is fearless, let's just hope that he can stay healthy for the rest of the season and the playoffs.
Rypien is back and that makes for some entertaining scraps. Go check his history out they are all toe to toe, and he almost always gives up a few inches and 25+ pounds. If only he could stay healthy....
He did leave the team earlier this year after getting hurt yet again. Perhaps depressed, or contemplating his career? The usual substance abuse rumours came up. Not sure what happened or why.
