Other Penalties: McGrattan received a misconduct.
McGratton, simply, punches straight through Rosehill, on his way to an absolute demolition of the, tragically outgunned, Leaf. Once again... Leaf Nation... his name is Kyle Neuber... he's already in your system... stop the carnage. And this, is from a Wings fan, whose team hasn't known true toughness in over a decade, and, by the looks of things...sigh...never will again..
Congrats McGratts on hitting only helmet (hence the knuckles). People keep saying that Rosehill must have some kind of indestructable material in his face. Well you have to hit someone in the face to cause any damage. Rosehill didn't have a scratch on him because he wansn't hit. McGrattan's bloody knuckles are from Rosehill's helmet, not his face. Figure it out people! Rosey looked like he had the better shots connecting in this fight. Wish someone would put up the Leafs TV feed for once. No need for a celebration when your up 3-1. Too bad Orr wasn't in to give him another healthy dose of whoop ass! Not even close to fight of the year people. Not one of his punches connected with Rosey.
when McSorley says this fight was a draw i go with him..sure lots of punches thrown but hardly any landed i thought rosehill landed 2 of the best shots like marty says and who would know better
Good show Grats but the bloody knuckles say it all. Nothing of any significance was landed - wasted energy - all for show - DRAW
great bout Landing more without having significant affect does not constitute a win. . .nor does only staying standing despite the home ice announcers and theatrics I say draw
WOW Could very well be the fight of the year..Well Done Boyz..
Rosie shouldnt be fighting Mcgratton while Orr watches from the press box. Should have been Orr in this one, but either way Rosie gets pummeld give him credit he stayed on his skates the guys head is made of rocks. Orr should have been in this one, Rosie is a good middle weight shouldnt be taking on the heavy's Domination Mcgratton
McGrattan with the win,alot of punches thrown but not much connected neither from both,'but good show'.
@ "filthynumber1" .. I was going to unsult you, but just looking at your response and how it was typed. I think it's insult enough.
jay stood his ground and threw prolly just as many but mcgrattan actualy landed
Another Maple Leaf punching bag gets his butt whooped
I really don't care for Rosehill's antics; nice to see McGrattan back in the bigs. Would love to see McGrattan pound the tar out of Chrissy Neil!!!
well being a leafs fan i would have liked to have seen grats get bloodied up like last year when orr give him a beating. have to give credit where it is do grats started throwing and never stopped, think the majority hit jay's helmet by the look of his hands, props to jay for going toe to toe with a heavy weight, hope orr gets into some games before he gets too rusty
How scared are those linesmen. "excuse me, excuse me, Brian"
Great showing by Gratts. Rosehill did a good job to stand in there but had no shot. Where is Orr?
Rosehill ate many decent face shots by McGratten.
Really good one.
Wow--Gratz just drilled Rosie with rights relentlessly. "Whaddya' say, JayRo, let's give the crowd a show" and off they went. Of course I will be restless in anticipation of the Smithson-Crabb bout that never materialized. (-:
Well, that's what happens when Colton Orr has a tummy ache, or the flu or whatever he has. Toronto really has yet to see the best of Orr, I was hoping we would this year but nothing doing so far. Rosehill can take beating for sure. But, you get going like that with little defense, I need to see a buckle if not a knockdown to go higher than a 7. McGrattan and a 7.
Rosehill had no chance against the fiddler's elbow....
Easier said than done but I don't get Rosehill... You would think after eating the first five solid ones that he'd change his game plan. If the 'Brownie' approach is not working, your instincts would tell you to bail out and try something different ! (McGratt's first two bleeding knuckles shows he's using the correct knuckles to land with.) Gave it a 7.
Mcgrattan with a predictable win over a mid-heavyweight, rosehill...dirty celebration after makes me wish the leafs started their tough guy who can't skate to relive the calgary bout and put old AHL Brian back in his place...maybe secure a spot in the show before acting like a complete douchebag...good fight though
Total wipe out of Rosehill by McGratten. Rosehill must have a concrete head...should have been out and down! What fuggin' idiot called this a draw! I guess Grats loses point for making his own hand bleed!
Brian Mcgrattan is by far the most exciting player on the Flames and makes every game worth watching.
I dont think Rosy even landed!
What the hell is Rosehill's face and skull made out of? Rosehill should rethink his approach on the square off . He really shouldn't lead with his chin except that his face and skull are made of some indestructible, mystery material. Rosehill gets the Homer Simpson skull strength award. Rosehill's toughness is impressive. Why does McG get a misconduct? I think Rosehill had the gloves off first. If he got the misconduct for the showboat after the fight that would be ok with me.
clear win mcgrattan.rosehill is a warrior but macgrattan's reach advantage and power was too much to overcome....gave it 8
Not sure how 4% saw it as a draw. Must be Rosehill's dad and brothers voting! McGrattan must have hit him with 40 rights.
McGrattan all day long! Rosehill gets a pat on the back for taking that beat down without going down.
Now that's more like it, well done guys. Definate win McGratton but give Rosehill every credit for standing there and swinging right to the end.
Good for Rosehill!!! This beating will get ORR back in the lineup on a more steady basis. McGratts looked solid...hate the showboating after beating up a middleweight. Act like you have been there big guy.
I kept waiting for Rosehill's head to pop up in the air with a "bing" noise. Rock 'em sock' em!
I give credit to Rosehill for not getting knocked out
man brian had rosehills head rockin,rosehill must have one tough noggin.rosehill is a lot like brown,a bunch of rapid punches that have no message attached.i gotta think orr stil lhas flash bulbs going off from last year,why else wouldn't he be in.but i like guys like orr havin a bit a cash in the bank for the beating they take.you can tell bac is clean,his stamina is twice what it was,he looks alive.
No contest, Rosehill got with @ss whooped
Rosehill hase an anamantium face. McGrattan dominated.
Kudos for throwing punches and not dancing and grabbing. Only thing better would have been to toss the helmets with the gloves.
McGratton the clown takes it and I hear he kept celebrating right to the bar and 20 vodkas. Perhaps the d!ckehad Wilson will put Orr in the line-up now.
McGrattan is devestating. He wants it everytime.
I had to search for words for a minute in exspressing this fight.Well here it goes.Welcome Mr. Rosehill to the top 5 of heavies in the league and you failed the test.A complete beat down by McGrattan .Call it a TKO! Where the hell is Orr!Not that it would matter much.Rosehill is at best a top 20 AHL fighter not a top 30 NHLl Heavy and thats that! The bully got bullied!Hey Leaf fans giving credit to a guy for being too stupid to hit the deck is just Insane!Look at Ali.
Good fight gave it an 8. Clear win fro McGrat
wow. mcgrattan is a beast
McGratton was on full blast... Announcers kill me... Knuckles get busted, sure... But "exhausted"???!!! Technique is on fine display by McGratton... Keep eyes open and on the matter at hand and throw the shortest distance between point A to target B.... repeatedly.
Win Mac. Props Rosy for hanging in!!!
GREAT FIGHT! best one ive seen ina while. My boy B-Grat with the win
Yikes...Severe Jackhammer beatdown by McGrattan. Rosehill gets pummeled. Gotta give him credit for standing in there though.
McGrattan looks as good as ever. Rosehill will need a new helmet after that one. It has to have cracks in it!
Good job, mister McGrattan
Gratts,total domination! Kudos to Rosehill for standing toe to toe with the big fella. Great seeing Gratts having a fulltime spot on the Preds. Only wish he could have stuck with the B's last year!
He beats him up badly!
McGratton hit skin......Rosehill didn't come close
Grats destroys Rosehill....not even close!!! Rosehill has a long way to go to be in the same league as Grats
think their arms were tired? lol
First off, this was one of the better tilts in a while. Gratts just overpowered Rosey here. Not many guys just stand there and stare punches down while firing their own anymore! MacIntyre and Orr are two more that come to mind, and they are probably the only two heavies around that could possibly hand Gratts a loss. As for the the celebration after, I have NO problem with it. Gratts earned it with an entertaining bout like that AND if it bothers other players then seine will have to take him on and give him a beating to stop it from happening. Domi used to do that all of the time and no one had a problem with it. They r pumped up with adrenaline...sometimes they just act on emotion. Not a bog deal unless the guy that lost is unconscious or something.
Gotta give Rosehill credit for the amount of of hard roundhouses that he took. Not many players would be able to still stand during that. On a side note, Orr's concussion is obviously still an issue. He's hardly played this year. The Leafs claim he's fine, but this game was a perfect example of one that he should have been playing in and wasnt. Something is still wrong with him.
*edited for my buddy PghBri*.. :) HEY "PghBri", you gotta ask yourself one question. when your the only guy on here with that opinion. ask yourself this, is it me? am i retarded or is it everyone else on this site? my guess is you"ll say the latter which further proves my point. and you know im right, i mean there freakin six pages on here to prove it!!!. we can't all be wrong and you being the only one right....can we??? lol. opinions are like assholes. you just go on keep believing yourself.
Gratz Buddy.... way to go! Man I wish he was still with the Sens! Always goes with the other team's heavy weights... Allot of respect for him.
This could be a nomination for the fight of the year. Didn't know a big guys could throw like PJ Stock. Excellent fight !
W O W!
Take a look at Grat's knuckles, wow.
Rosehill should get a medal for the pounding he took. A lesser man would have taken a knee after the first 15 to 20 jackhammers!!!
Whoa Nellie .... big bombs
Wow, mcgrattons hands took a beating, and so did rosehills helmet.
I am so happy McGrattan is a Predator. McGrattan, 9.
McGrattan was throwing bombs
Damn. Rock'em Sock'em Robots. W MCGrattan.
Welcome back McGratts!!! Total domination. That was flashbacks of George McPhee vs. Rick Tocchet. Gave it a 9. Rosehill is lucky he had his head turned for some of those right hand sledgehammers. He must have a cast-iron jaw, because he ate a ton of rights. Great shot of the bloody knuckles in the sin bin!!!
Fight of the year so far. Gotta give Rosehill credit for hanging in there.
Great fight. Just a slugfest with McGrattan with the clear win. Jesus, he looked like he was driving in a nail at the end.
Just awesome. A for Awesome. Gratts Heavy Weight Champ.
win: all of us for getting to see that!
I was out of town a few days and missed this one, McGratten is my favourite, how did Rosehill survive that.
while it was a good fight.. both threw their punches, and a lot of them, mcgrattan landed most... good fight
Rosehill missed most of those punches but McGrattan landed a surprising amount. Though I give Rosehill credit for not bleeding, McGrattan by domination.
mcgrattan is a beast.. but big ups for rosehill for sticking in there, and he laid a lot of hits himself
wow. McGrattan took this one from the first punch. Huge credit to Rosehill for staying around. Unfortunately, his flurry of rights into the open air couldn't slow McGrattan...
Plain old fantastic. What a great bout.
FIGHT OF THE YEAR
man Rosehill took some shots and didnt even buckle once!! Mcgrattan dominated this fight, both were throwing but Mcgrattan was the only one that landed. props to Rosehill for staying in it, taking the pucnhes and continueing to throw.
McGratten big win, no surprise though
give rosehill props for getting some hits in after mcgrattan landed that many hits so fast, but no contest at all here.
If you didn't see McGrattan dominated, you must have been in the kitchen getting a beer.
i gave it to mcgrattan cuz his punches where more explosive
McGrattan absolutely demolished Rosehill, was that like 20 straights to the face in a row?
Both guys were throwing a ton, but only McGrattan was landing! Awesome fight, great action.
Mcgrattan destroyed rosehill but you got to give rosehill credit because he was able to hang in there while getting pounded punch after punch and didnt go down and kept fighting
McGrattan throws them like a REAL NHL Old School fighter and Rosehill took them like an old school punching bag. Total Domination. THey should require NHL fighters to throw punched in this piston-like fashion or incurr additional penalties for boring the public.
Not close Grattz is awesome. Either Rosy's mother voted or the soccer man voted for Rosy embarrasing
Awesome fight! Nice old time fught without defense,huging etc...just fists flyin'!!!! Win for McGrattan!
Great Fight! Your heavyweight champion!!!
That was a throwback to 20+ years ago. Kinda reminded me of a Kordic-Probert tilt. Great tilt and the win to McGrattan.
McGratts is back. Perfect example of the enforcer role.
This was an absolute war. WIN McGrattan in the early candidate for Fight of the Year.
Let's get ready to rumble ladies and gentleman because MCGRATTAN is back . His 3 fights was very good boughts and in my opinion BRIAN MCGRATTAN is the # 1 fighter right now in the NHL . He is an open fighter and he throws big bombs too . He knows his job very well about when it's the right time to drop his gloves if it's necessary . I am very happy to see Brian Mcgrattan back in the NHL . He deserves it because he has worked very hard to accomplish that goal . Barry Trotz is the best NHL Coach right now and I think he is the right man to give that chance again to Mcgrattan to perform in the NHL . He has a great heart . Go Mcgrattan Go
Domination by McGrattan. Rosehill got a strait up beating. Great fight since there was no grabbing pulling and dancing. A great hockey fight that every fighting player should at least watch once. Win by Mcgrattan done the right way.
McGrattan = badass. I am glad he is back.
brian gets the win with his rapid fire right hand shots.
mcgratts is current champ until big mac or ORR come back
Rock'em sock'em hockey.
Great scrap from McGrattan, he was in the zone for this one!! Whats up with Orr... are his knees still sore? Haven't seen or heard from him in a while!!!
FIGHT OF THE YEAR> WIN GRATTS!!!!!!
All Mac. I got tired just watching this one. Of course I gave Mac a 10, but I gave Rosehill a 7 just for hanging in there and staying on his feet.
That was a severe smackdown delivered by McGrattan. It was better than a knockout because at least with a knockout it would have been over. This was a beating that Rosehill endured for quite a while. Honorable mention to Rosehill for not turtling.
Clear win McGrattan in maybe the best fight in awhile, the fact that the glass vs mccormick fight is ranked just as high is ridiculous I would give this a 9.5, the 8.6 its currently rated as is too low in my opinion, this is my guess for fight of the year not just now but for the rest of the year cus i dont think there will be a better fight than this however rosehill and mcgrattan have this trade punches style so maybe one of them will get in an even better exchange but i doubt it, great fight, props to rosehill as well for hanging in there and kept throwing punches
Rosey was VERY GAME...but Gratts got off early and often and landed a wicked late right ...right on the Bu-gel as Joe Bowen would say... This fight is what this SITE IS ALL ABOUT. Big time win by the man from Hammertown, Ontario.
complete domination!! McGrattan was landing most of his and Rosehill was eating them. Gotta hand it to him though...Rosy took a lot of shots and din't pull the chute! Best fight of the season so far!
gave it to McGrattan tho he is VERY lucky he didnt get KO'd, but i guess with the fight going how it was , i guess he didnt need to Defend
I've seen a lot of punches thrown, and i think that tilly just tied that total. McNasty just one the academy award for baddest man of all time McGratten and a hard 10
best fight of the season so far hands down, edge to mcgrattan
McGrattan is a BEAST!!! I loved watching this one in person last night....
Best fight of year so far. W gratts
mcgratts is he man he took rosehill to town that was no fight that was just a massecure he was firing rights in to rosehills face total domination
35 Punches by McGratten non stop hits by McGratten great fight.
I have not read the reviews yet but I did notice that there were 94 reviews compared to an average of 20 to 25 reviews per fight. I was fortunate to grow up in Boston during the Big Bad Bruins days and this fight was similiar to those great bouts. Wow!
I love Brian McGrattan and hate Jay Rosehill. I saw McGrattan get into a few fights in Providence. His knuckles look cool!!!
bolth went hard
Best fight of the year! Grattan Killed it.
More blood on the knuckles than on the faces, when this fight just opened up I was like OOOH SHIT LOL
i had to double check if that was in fast forward!!
AWESOME FIGHT! McGrattan landed almost 10 times as many power shots..dunno how Rosehill was still standing
unfair before to decide to figh he grab his jersey and make sur he is getting advantage......cheater
Gotta love those 6 or 7 votes for Rosehill or the draw. McGrattans right hand says it all.......
Big flipping deal......there is no one in the league who can make it a fair exchange other than Mac.....So what are you bragging about ....NOTHING... then you act like a 2 year old after the fight......HEY BRIAN MEN act like they have been there before.....So what have you learned nothing......I hope Mac beats the living crap out of you.....your still just a punk. Way to go Jay.....full marks for GUTS and for knowing how to act despite getting beat you stood in there and didn't turn in to a 2 year old....
McG threw alot of punches - 99% to the helmet of Rosie. Rosie landed 4 or 5 shots to McG's face. If it was a punch count then yes McG. I went with shots that landed somewhere other then ones helmet.
are you guys watching? Mcgrattan landed tons of shots to the helmet... did hardly any damage... Draw
McGrattan with the win and the D-bag celebratory hands up to the crowd. Can't a guy be a "cool" badass anymore? BTW....McGrattan landed more than 16 hits to the helmet....(watch the replay), no wonder his hands were bleeding! And how could people give this such a high rating for such an uneven fight? Did Rosehill even land a punch?!?! I'd give McGrattan a 9 and Rosehill a 3 ...equals a 6. Flyers20Fan said "I would give this a 9.5, the 8.6 its currently rated as is too low in my opinion, this is my guess for fight of the year not just now but for the rest of the year cus i dont think there will be a better fight than this" OMFG....what a dumbass! This isn't the fight of the year, it was lopsided. THAT'S not a good fight! Maybe there should be a ass kicking of the year and a fight of the year and seperate ratings for both. I will NEVER understand how this can be rated so high when only opne person actually landed punches. McGrattan won...no doubt about it but fight of the year? Geezus! THIS lopsided tilt wasn't a fight of the year...lol Check this one out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Lnj8RCfZWok or this one... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VI8BsjT83fc&feature=related
...the ONLY guy "throwin'-em", was McGrattan,...Rosehill was being used for target-practice,......
McGrattan won that, but the vast majority of his hits landed on helmet. He's an idiot and his gesture at the end of the fight shows it. If those rapid fire hits had really connected hard, Rosehill would have been down on the ice. I didn't see Rosehill after the fight, but McGrattan's hand was super bloody.
McGrattan with the win, but give credit to Rosehill for hanging in there with one of the NHL's best. The Leafs have to get Orr back in the lineup. He's healthy, but Ron Wilson prefers Rosehill because he's definitely the better player of the 2. Rosehill just doesn't have Orr's power. I didn't like McGrattan's showboating at the end, but he's done that before. It could be a good thing. Maybe McGrattan's antics will get NHL teams dressing their heavyweights again.
McGratton fed him a ton of rights. rosehill hung in their and even landed a few of his own. Great bout. Obvious win for McGratton but props to rosehill for hanging in there.
Looks like Rosie's face did a number on McGrattan's fists. I think the last time a Leaf won a fight was in 1967
Holy Jebus...that was awesome!
LMFAO......Wow......Typical Leaf taking a beat down!!! Rosie make Lucie Schenn look tough. Where is Leafs2006? Washing his jizz and mustard stained Coltie Eggshell Orreo jersey?
WOW is right. Rosehill can take a punch, that's for sure.
McGrattan all the way, nice to see Rosehill uses this site and votes for himself as the winner. If it wasn't Rosehill then some leaf fans are hopefully joking, i'm a leafs fan by the way. I watched this on Leafs TV and had a good laugh at Joe Bowen's comment about McGrattans knuckles taking the worst of the fight, fairly sure Roshills face felt worse than those leather wrapped battering rams.
Rosehill proves he has a titanium chin, taking a terrifying number of direct and full power punches from one of the hardest hitting heavyweights in the league and never once looks like he's going down. Gratts definitely won dominantly, but give Rosehill credit, he took a ton and kept returning, only landing a few, but staying in the fight 'til the end. Great tilt.
How could anyone vote for Rosehill in this bout? His arm was swinging but he wasn't landing anything. Meanwhile McGrattan was pummeling in the face over and over. Best part of all to me is that Rosehill started it. What a chump!
Gratts with the overwhelming W! SO happy he has found a new home and getting the ice time he deserves!! He looks like a beast and he's having FUN! Welcome back Brian! Definate FoTY candidate.......only thing that woulda been better is, if Rosehill had of been Colton Orr.
I've never seen ANYTHING like it. WOW. That inarguably goes to McGrattan.
Rosey stood in there. But Grats just throws and pummels. calling it a 9. McGrattan all day.
win mcG in one of the better fights this season! just awesome fight! i like the "hand behind the ear"-gesture.. i cant hear ya crowd!! make more noise!!
Very good fight Edge Grats
dandy fight - mcgrattan uses his reach advantage but loved seeing these two heavyweights throwing that many shots
That was one of the most one sided bouts I've ever seen. I didn't see any of Roeshill's punches get through and McGrattan seemed to land every one he threw. Props to Rosehill for staying on his skates.
What b.t. wilson said. Happy times here in Nashville
Well at least he didnt go done LOL Rosehill was just schooled in the fine art of a NHL heavyweight Bout Gratts has definately got it goin on.......
Lawnmower. Love it.
McGrattan is having a ball this year and the Preds crowd love it. Props to Rosey, he has a future as a tough guy and will learn a lot from that bout. But McGrattan just looks awesome, two horse race between the Mc/Mac's.
This might be the fight of the year leader so far. This one was all offense but McGratton was landing a lot more than Rosehill was and most of them were heavy shots. Good toe-to-toe fight here. Rosehill's head must be made out of concrete because a lot of fighters would have gone down after taking some of the punches he took from McGratton. Good fight, I gave it a solid 9.
McGratten dominated that one
Rosehill ate so many punches i don't know how he is standing...he one tough hombre, but McGrattan destroys him....end result never in jeopardy. 9 and a dominating win for McGrattan...
99% of other fighters would have gone down with any of those punches. Classic! Sore just from watching.
Great fight...Win Gratts...Current HeavyWeight Champ
McGrattan controlled that fight. And 10 !!! Fight of the year so far
Polish up the belt for Gratts.
oh my gosh. BOOOOMMMMMM! McGrattan owned him. It was like his arm was a machine gun!
real fight toe to toe no BS keepin at a distance the guys went blow for blow
What was rosie thinking here?
