Other Penalties: Each player received a roughing.
I can't score that one because Rypien was disadvantaged quite a bit there by the visor on McLeod. Nice takedown by McLeod at the end but I highly doubt he would have had the chance to do that if he didn't have his helmet and visor on for most of the fight. Rypien should have another go at this turkey McLeod after he rips his lid and visor off his head. I think McLeod is a chump.
Judo flip and a visor to go... very Dennis Weaver. What?? Too obscure?
Draw. McLeod is a tough guy - fighting with an injured eye... not bad!
McLeod's real tough until he gets his helmet ripped off. Then goes for the takedown after not being able to hide behind the visor. Draw
No clear winner here both got some pretty decent shots in. I'm callin it a draw.
Rypien wins again. McLeod was very crafty to wear a visor into the fight and then use judo when losing; but that doesn't get him any respect from me.
For people who say McLeod is hiding behind a visor should know he took a stick to the eye a few weeks ago and has to wear it much like Brad May has to for now. The blood you see is from him taking a puck to the mouth in the second period not the fight. Draw.
some of you guys are clueless and it's a bit funny .. anyways I think for a guy that spent the first half of the fight landing/throwing punches 'mcchicken' did alright for himself .. if any of you had ever been in one you'd probably know you cant go forever a take down was inevitable and had nothing to do with the sudden lack of bucket ..
Lots of votes for Rypien but I'm not quite sure why. McLeod shouldn't fight with that shield on and if he's hurt, don't be fighting at all but hockey players were never accused of being smart. lol It looked like McLeod land some shots and so did Ryp. Give it a draw.
Rypien should not have let McLeod back up. He had the W til Cody got up. Draw
Draw, but decent tilt
first rypien fight of season without w for him.draw
quite clear draw in my eyes.
Draw, but a nice one. Mcleod did way better than expected.
Rypien didn't dominate like he usually does. McLeod landed a few early but Rypien came on until he got taken down. Draw.
I guess with a name like "Cody" you'd wear a visor too. I wonder if Cody's visor is now afraid of the Pitbull just like the rest of the NHL chumps.
Simple Visor = loss
It's like trying to beat up a guy locked in a car!!!! Ripper with the W anyway
Mark Rypien? Announcing 101: Learn the players' names. Edge to Rypien. Both guys exchanged punches, but Rypien was more active and more accurate with his shots. Why is McLeod wearing a visor?
win canuck close but rypen with win blood on av, signed fan of neither team
Whats with Mcleod trying to end the fight twice with a wrestling take down? The ripper wins by default.
take off the shield Micky Mouse you big bonehead
SUTHED, dude get off the site, you obviously don't know what your talking about. Rypien fights anyone, that last thing he is, is a coward. plus he is middle weight so that takes him out of fighting some ppl, not that it was stop him. Dude know your stuff before you comment.
Come on Mcleod, grow some hair on those raisins!!!! W double R
Rypien with the win.....Mcleod shouldve taken off the visor
Disgusting bailout by Mcleod. can't give him any credit for a headlock and judo flip. Win Rypien
Mcleod has to take this one he slammed the shit out of Rypien at the end .i will say Rypien is still one of the best boxers in the nhl.
Awkward start, good finish. Both guys were chucking, but Rypien landed a bit better. Draw/Edge Rypien. I'd like to see these guys go with a proper square-off, and with no lids/visors. I have a feeling Rypien would handle McLeod if that happened.
win rypien.. you can tell he didn't want to punch as much with mcleod visor on.. ppl said mcleod is injured cause of an eye injury.. if you are injured, don't fight then... if you do fight, take off the damn visor..
Granted McLEOD got the take down but Rypien nailed McLEOD with a few good ones...advantage to Rypien
I have to give this one to Ryp simply because Cody seemed to not want any part of it once Ryp was able to get his visor off. Indeed, if you have an eye injury and are concerned about it, why try to get in a fight especially with a guy like Ryp when you know he will get to your face sooner or later. Not smart and a bit gutless...
once clouds helmet came off he wasnt too brave ..he did rite by wrestling rip to the ice before he got creamed..rip all the way
Decent scrap, slight edge to Rypien. Props to Mcleod for surviving this one. Rypper is one hell of a fighter
JUDO FLIP. I'd make a big deal about the visor but the commentator said something about an eye injury so I can understand why he is wearing it but what I can't understand is why are you fighting a guy like Ryp when you have an eye injury ya idiot. WIn Rypien Ryp is a great fighter but I refuse to call him Middle Weight Champ until he beats Cam Janssen.
rypien gets the win in this fight.
55/45 for rypien.
McLeod = Visor wearing ........ Guys with visor should never act though. Win Rypien
First of all, IT'S NOT F'N Mark Rypien!!! His uncle's football career is long over. I watched a different feed and think McLeod landed maybe on glancing blow to Rypien. Rypien with the clear win as McLeod and his bloody nose head to the locker room... There must be 23% homers to give McLeod the win...
Rick won the battle and the Canucks won the war. Rypien landed more quality punches takedown doesnt always constitute a win. clear cut win for Rypien in my eyes
i guess McChicken has the handbook on how to fight rypien. Step 1.)Wear a visor. Step 2.) Use judo takedown when visor is removed and face is pummeled. If you're hurt dont wear a visor and pick a fight so another player can injure their hands on your windshield. Octopus, takedowns are lame and not part of a hockey fight. Quote me that McChicken will not fight Rypien again this season when he gets his doctors note that the visor can come off. Visor Visor Visor Visor. 8-2.
rypien landed some good shots.
That last Rypien's uppercut destroyed McLeod. Great, really close fight.
Good fight. Win Rypien. He could have really pounded on Mcleod when they went to the ice the first time but he let him get back up and away they went again. Can't give Mcleod shit about the visor either as apparently he has an injury and din't have time to lose it, but Rypien's hand was bad before the fight and hitting Mcleod's face and shield that many times isn't going to help.
If Mcleods helmet came off at the start he would of been finished right away.
McLeod was able to hang on against Rypien with the help of his visor, good for McLeod! Without the visor, McLeod's face would be full of Rypien's fists! haah
Rypien with the win. Not sure what some of you McLeod supporters were watching. Lucky for McLeod he was wearing the visor, yet he still lost the fight. Rypien not only throws accurate puches, but he blocks a lot of punches. By the way, those lame bail-out hip tosses are meaningless...they happen when a guy knows he is losing and he needs to end it.
i give it to rypien, mcleod gets a takedown but is lucky he didn't get killed by rypien! who the f is this guy!
nothing mcleod threw, landed. not rypiens best performance but yet another light heavy beaten by the ripper.
Edge Rypien, he landed more and just seemed more enthusiastic. (Sidenote: I don't know why fighters aren't incensed when their opponents fight with shields.)
even w/ his visor on, mcleod still got bloodied, gotta give it to rypien
Mcleod is a gutless pussy, fighting with a visor, what a joke.... too bad for him, rypien got his helmet off and punished him
Good thing McL had the visor, he wouldn't have lasted as long. Easy win for Rypien
Also, for the record: McLeod is only wearing the visor because he HAS to for a certain amount of time after an eye injury. He's not doing it by choice and has said that once the required time has passed, he'll go back to playing without it. Normally I agree with the visor = pussy thing, but it's not correct in this case.
mcleod landed some great punches to rypien face in this fight. win for mcleod.
mcleod put a whoopin on rypien............when is rypien actually gonna fight a real fighter?
McLeod with the best shots.He wins
mac the win in a close one.
Too many idiot CANSUCKS fans on here...obvious win for Cody
McLeod with a narrow win.
Draw but Rypien is a bloody coward. A: He never goes after anyone very tough B: McLeod was wearing a visor because of a eye injury. I'd like to see him go with Mc Grattan or Koci.
This was a great fight. I didn't see this coming at all. I said it was a hug fest, but then McLeod and Rypien just had some ferocious blows. By the way- at the end props to McLeod for the takedown. McLeod Wins.
Suprised McLeod stood with this guy. Rypien probably the best pound for pound fighter on any roster at the moment. Love to see him and Tootoo drop the gloves sometime. Fight was close though. Might have been different without the visor. Draw.
maybe if rypien was any good people would remember his name, seen a few of his fights, throws lots of punches and fast just no wieght or power behind those punches do do any dammage, Rypien= Manitoba Moose
Not too obscure-Chester. The cult fav didn't look as impressive as usual. Draw
2-pt. takedown for McLeod at the end!
draw; not one of rypien's more impressive performances.
Gotta call it a draw. If he has an injury he shouldn't be droppin the mits.If he is good enough to drop them then he should remove the bucket. or not where the visor. Different fight if visor shots land on face!!!! Check out Mcleod in there first fight,,,,,,,,,He hold on and doesn't want to throw because he lost his bucket and in this one he goes for the takedown right after he loses his bucket........Chicken shit should cover it!!!!!!! MAN UP McLeod!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11Good swinging by both!!!!!! Hey Wernst....May takes his visor off.........what about McPanzy????
yes, i love with ppl who fight with a visor
Now this is a fight! A good, heavy hitting draw!
Give it to ripper, mcleod had no fight in him without the visor... take downs are for chumps. Especially after rypien let him up earlier in the fight.
Get the visor off tough guy!
Nice effort by McLeod, but he was still getting beat. The blatant hip-toss takedown wasn't right either,....total bail move on his part.
that hip toss was bullshit. W/out his helmet McLeod was toast.. Rypien win.
The Rypper...best fighter in the league.
Lol another Mark Rypien reference by an American network.
Let me first congratulate C. McLeod for fighting with a 1/2 shield. You sure are a total bada$$. Next time, man up and take your helmet off. Pansies that fight with any mask need to be given another 5 min. major for being a sissy.
good scrap, edge to rypien...sorry, no points for takedowns, only for fists....mcleod`s tough, he`s coming off an eye injury...he probably shouldn`t be scrapping yet, but none of the other avalanche wusses will take on rypien....i would like to see, just for once, one of the scorers take on a guy like rypien, and eat a few fists, if only as a sign of respect to guys like mcleod who get their faces and fists beat up all year protecting them.
I called that a draw. Too bad McLeod didn't get the visor off. Two very good smaller fighters. I sure hate those takedowns, we're going to see someone get seriously hurt from those one day. EDIT: Watched it again and changed my vote to RR victory. Turns out McLeod didn't land shots that I thought he had. My bad. Should have given it to Rypien in the first place for that lame bail-out takedown.
win ripper....a good tilt...mcleod did well for himself (visor n all) vs the best middleweight in hockey
rypien landed more shots and blocked a lot of mcleod's what a gutless puke mcleod is though... the guy is wears a visor and still tries to pick fights win rypien
McLeod did pretty well, but Rypien clearly got the better of him.
Who is this McLeod character? Great effort on his part! Rypien with the obvious win though. I appreciate his style of put-the-head-down-and-throw. May the best man win. These guys who stand as far away as possible and try and throw bombs should take some lessons from these two middleweights. edit: I didn't notice the visor until I read the comments. Will have to watch again. Maybe I should have more coffee before I watch my morning vids.
Too bad the poor Camera guy was looking the wrong way so we missed the start of this, Looked like McLeod wanted it over early but Rypien pulled him back up after the early takedown?.McLeods takedown to end sucked, but had too to save more of a beating, at that point it may have been his only way to hurt Rypien. not right..... Rypien wins this one.
Rypien got better shots in by McLeod got a nice hip throw in there
Slight edge McLeod. I would like to see Rypien fight someone who can handle themselves. Not May that is past his prime; Vandeermmer, Asham, Boulton,
Clear win for Cody, Ripper lost another fight
Wow, for once I'mma give McLeod the win! Even though to keep himself from losing he flipped Rypien over and landed on him, but still!
McLeod is hurt, that's why he have a visor. Normally he don't have it
