Avery to Miss Weeks After Neil Hit
You can catch a replay of the hit at the end of the Strudwick vs Neil clip.

The early call
Wayne Fish of phillyBurbs.com is already writing about the rise in fighting this season.
After just about a week (39 games), it’s a bit too soon to say what this season will look like. Mike Knuble is also predicting an increase in fighting this season, but as Fish points out, the Flyers did add Jesse Boulerice and Riley Cote to accompany Ben Eager, so from a Flyers perspective he’s probably right.
Since it’s been a few days since I’ve added a post, here are the vids since the last one:
Doug Murray vs Ian Laperriere Oct 7, 2007
Brad Winchester vs Darcy Hordichuk Oct 6, 2007
Krys Barch vs Jordin Tootoo Oct 6, 2007
Arron Asham vs Nathan Horton Oct 6, 2007
Jason Strudwick vs Chris Neil Oct 6, 2007
Milan Lucic vs Brad Winchester Oct 5, 2007
Shawn Thornton vs Todd Fedoruk Oct 5, 2007
The downloads have been re-added to the videos page, and I’ll fast forward those some over the next few days.
