McGratton has already called out Neil for "selecting" Seidenberg, a non-fighter. Can't wait for the next B's-Sens game ... I can assure you McGratton WILL be in the B's lineup and I expect Neil to tangle with McGratton, Thornton AND Lucic ... and if he doesn't accept; he's a pussbag ...
C'mon Neil ... fight a figher; or someone tougher.
Kudos to Seidenberg for taking the challenge ... now play defense!
Has anyone ever witnessed Neil pick on a scraper . NOOOOOOOO he always always goes after the LADY BYNG players. ORR Carcillo Thornton etc - he never has the guts to scrap with them. A PURE PUNK. Needs a puck deflection to his head.
Not much going on here. In Neil's defense it's not like he just randomly picked Seidengberg. The two had words earlier in the game so Dennis should have probably seen this one coming with the score 4-0. Neil will get his next meeting.
Neil loses a lot of respect in my book, there are plenty of Bruin's who would've danced with him and he picks a non-fighting Euro. Why didn't he ask Lucic, Chara, McQuiad, Thornton, Stuart, Horton, Cambell or even Ference to go? Pu**y move by Neil.
agree with everyone so far that yes neil gets the win but gain no respect for him whats so ever, yes im a bruins fan but this fight is bull, neil takes on one of the bruins skilled defenseman while staying away from thornton and lucic the whole game
absolute BS, Neil went after seidenberg who is definitely not a fighter for no reason. He was pissed because they were getting killed and went after a skilled defensemen who never fights. What a douche.
Chris Neil is a classless punk. Hits Seidenberg with 2 cheap shots to get it started. Basically 2 sucker shots at a point in the game where Seidenberg wouldn't have even thought of fighting. Give credit to DS - he didnt back down. As for earlier in the game - no reason for any Bruin to engage CS when they have a 2 goal lead - no reason to get their crowd into the game. CS will get his the next time theses teams meet.
