Nice one. Never expected a player like Brule to drop 'em, but it seems he can handle himself pretty well. He didn't try to hang on and didn't turrtle under pressure. He took some big shots and stayed in and fired back. Props to the kid. Hansen takes it in a good scrap.
Pretty good tilt. I guess I'm not as surprised as everyone else to see Brule in some fisticuffs. Although not known as a fighter when he played here in Vancouver with the Giants, as he played with guys like Lucic and Tristan Grant among others who took care of that kind of thing, he was always very feisty and would drop them from time to time. Although most of his punches came up short, he definitley wasn't afraid to throw them wildly. Decision to Hansen based on the fact that most of Brule's punches didn't connect and Hansen ended up breaking his hand on Brule's face. Still love watching guys drop the lids and square off.
Newsflash: Pat Quinn puts Stortini and MacIntyre on waivers.
Quinn was quick to note that he wants hockey players that can play hockey and know how to fight when called upon.
Brule is his new "go-to guy".
