Neil is holding on to him because he knows whats coming if he lets him go. Chris Neil is the biggest one of the biggest greaseballs in the NHL. Rypien isn't that much better. But I've seen a consistency with Neil
dtown902 needs to get Rypien's balls out of his mouth.
Carkner whoops him, and you cry that Carkner only picks guys smaller than him..........um, Rypien was challenging HIM all throughout the first period (I was there, I saw it)---what the hell is he supposed to do? He obliged, and kicked his ass, like he should have. Suck it up, princess, your roid-rage hero lost. Then he goes on to hug Chris Neil, because he knows full well that if he opens up, Neil will tag the **** out of him. Either way, that fight sucked, by both of them.
