great showing by Neil and a beauty of a hit. I laughed when big Bambi hit the ice, did you see the terror in his eyes when Neil faked a punch at him? Loss chara for not being able to handle a much smaller opponent.

Every fight they have ends with Neil standing over Chara with a fist cocked...He should just drop the hammer next time. Sick of this imaginary 'Code'.

Horrible balance. Other guys who are only an inch or so shorter don't fall down that much....sh1t fighter, no doubt about it.

Typical Charo fight - a few punches then fall down. I don't give a **** if some SI "survey" says he's the best, or most dangerous or whatever... the real tangible evidence shows otherwise. Great player, not a good fighter.

Neil returned the favor-not punching a downed Chara, who was going to go after Neil initially for the hit on boychuk. Neil was apparently hurt in the hit, or just saw chara coming and played possum.

Edge Chara in a crappy fight. once again losing his balance.

I was pi55ed that chara held back when he had neil on the ice and vulnerable after the boychuk hit. so there goes that theory.

The hit on Boychuk was the hit of the year

Different scenario all together Neil was shaken up on the Boychuk hit and on the ice I dont think anyone in there right mind would start wailing on him?? I still carry a grudge over Chara busting Ivanans Orbital bone,Hab Bruin thing You know the drill !

I read that Boychuk was a little fuzzy after the hit but no word on if he has a concussion or will miss any time. I thought it was charging when I first saw it.

This is why Neil is my favourite fighter: great hitter, good player and can go at it with anybody. Props also to Chara for sticking up for Boychuk.
Not a greatest fight, but not that bad either. Draw.

"Chara's look of terror"?? Please....draw/edge Chara. Reminded me of the size difference Tie Domi dealt with in most of his fights.
