Looks like I'm not the only one who was caught off-guard by Rosehill's newfound ability to throw effectively from the southpaw stance Nice "sorry tap" on the accidental head-butt by Asham despite the surprising and fairly one- sided loss
Asham can't handle southpaws apparently...
Two tough guys, but Rosehill completely manhandles Asham and tosses him around like a rag doll. I don't think I've ever seen Asham get bullied and OWNED quite like this before. Rosehill literally picked Asham up off the ice twice just so he could punch him some more. Asham got hit with so many lefts he was probably praying for a right. Good job by Asham just to stay alive in this one, ...but total domination by Rosebud.
tough SEASON for ASHAM .
Rosehill does his job well here, Win Jay Rosehill.
Great fight. Rosehill with the win and he is actually providing a good presence for the flyers.
The Rosehill machine gun left's dominated this one, an okay scrap overall though. Rosehill hit Asham with so many lefts that Asham begged him for a right. But instead ate more lefts and liked it.
Rosehill with the beat down on Asham!
Asham got punched out, big time. Too bad it wasn't Sather taking those shots. He deserves a spanking more than any of his sad-sack players.
All Rosehill in this one. Rosehill actually picked Asham up twice so he could hit him again! All hockey fans everywhere stand in support of the people of Boston.
Rosehill controlled and hit Asham with a couple good shots. Several by both not even connecting. Win Rosehill. Entertaining scrap tho.
Rosehill rely's on those leftys a lot. Looking good this year tho, too bad he wasn't able to get a full season in.
Is it me or are the announcers seriously kissing Rangers ass? "Asham snuck in that first hard straight right" yea sure jus ignore the fury of lefts coming from Rosehill, I guess all you could say about that was "Rosehill stood in there". Fucking NBC
Rose bud kicks ASS-ham. 2 tough guys but Rose bud blooms!!
Rosehill's left stunned him and Asham never got it together
Asham opens with a square shot to the face bone...gives rosie a nice boo boo on the cheek. However, Rosie takes over from there and tosses Asham around like a ragdoll after that with the height and reach advantage, but most of Rosies shots were to the helmet....not as much of a domination as some have described but a spirited bout on both fighters part....good tilt. Win to Rosie
Asham, stop acting like your hand hurts so much when it was you the one punching his hand with your face!
That was a beauty! Gotta admire Asham for fighting up. More importantly, Rosehill is starting to impress. Never thought much of him as a Leaf but he obviously developed well as Orr's apprentice, dispatching his mentor in quick work (in a fight you have to watch in slow mo to appreciate) and now dominating a fighter he needed to dominate.
Asham put up a tussle but Rosehill was way too much for him.
This was a good fight. Surprised Asham did as well as he did against a much bigger guy. Got that first good shot in that'll have Jay walking around with a shiner for a few days, but then Rosehill took over. Easily got the best of the fight though Asham kept throwing as well. For the record, Asham got up twice, Rosehill didn't pick him back up, Jay's not lifting 190 pounds of dead weight with one hand leaning over on skates, get real. Also the headbutt was accidental and it seemed like Rosie accepted Asham's apology. I would have liked to see Rosehill go after a fellow heavyweight like Clowe rather than a MW like Asham, but it was an entertaining go so I can't really complain. All in all, not exactly close but certainly not a domination as he couldn't put Asham away. Good job by both.
Asham with the good shot as they came together. Then Rosehill took over. Good fight. Asham was game but Rosehill takes this one.
Rosehill wears Asham right out - that wasn't even close.
Cheap head butt by AA after getting his ass handed to him by Rosie. 6 and all Rosie.
Asham got the first shot then faced a barrage from Rosehill , who dominated despite Asham's efforts to keep it going....
When I intially saw Rosehill line up ready to fight as a righty, I was surprised. He switched it up right before they locked up, and it almost bit him in the butt, with Asham landing that right that is going to make it hard for Rosehill to chew for the next few weeks. However, Rosey responded and controlled the fight mightily, and ended up with the win. Rosey is much larger that Asham and i respect Arron for going up against the much bigger combatant.
Announcers talking about Asham's first right but it was more like Rosehill's first left that rattled Asham and he couldn't recover from it Rosehill decoys going righty at the start and surprised Asham fell for it...(gotta do your homework Arron).
Asham out of his weight class for sure.
Philly needed Rosehill at the beginning of the season. Asham is a tough guy but Rosehill is too. Easy win for Rosehill.
Not sure what fight the announcers were watching. They seemed to be fascinated by the one punch that Asham got in before Rosehill absolutely anihliated him. Didn't see the game, but sounded like the buffoons from NBC.
Asham landed a good one on the way in. After that Rosie 'goes rechlicz' on him and gets the dub. Good tilt.
Rosehill must have an Iron jaw...1st shot was a knockout blow from Asham. He stood in there, and , just pounded him...Win Rosey...and a 7
AA landed first but ducked and covered the rest of the way
First punch to AA then Rosehill unleash with a furies of left... Good scrap, win RoseH.
Heavy vs. light heavy. Heads down and constant throwing. I'm exhausted watching that. Rosehill wins with more damaging blows. Honorable mention to Asham's "apology" for accidentally helmet-butting his opponent.
I had been anxiously awaiting Ash's return and our ability to finally address his actions n the playoffs last season. Running Schenn was a disgrace and no self-respecting tough guy engages in that garbage. You got your polar bear sized head beat in which you richly deserved and I was at the game screaming for more you joke.
jay Rosehill handles karen the fat eskimo
i love to see rosehill back in nhl.he is a tough guy to fight...clear win rosehill in a great fight...and 8
Rosehill definitely won. But Asham's first shot did score. Watched the game and you could see the abrasion and shiner/mouse forming while Rosehill was in the penalty box.
great showing by the ex-flyer but i gotta give the nod to rosehill. he eats one then opens a can of whoop ass on asham. love to see a good "knuckle chucker" like this one... bloody hands and ice bags for both afterwards. only way it wouldve been better is if they took their helmets off.
Rosehill is 4 inches taller and 7 years younger than Ash. Both men gave it their best, strategic, fast, hard, and a lot of connects. Ash had a great opening blow, but Rosehill brought Ash down twice. That said, Ash definitely has tenacity. He may have lost this one, but how many guys can last as long as he does? And, man, I've never seen Ash shake his hand in pain like he did after this fight was done. Rosie got a beauty mark as a memento. As to Pierre's commentary, he's got to make up for giving Ash the shaft one year ago when he cross checked Braydon Schenn when Schenn had charged his teammate. If Schenn really had gotten checked in the throat as Pinhead had reported, you would have had one dead flyer.
Pretty good "go". Rosehill with a great first strike and never gives up control.
Win Rosehill as he dominates the long haired middleweight.
ALL rosehill looks like we may have FINALLY gotten a real fighter since cote left maybe rinaldo can keep to what he does best laying the hits and taking on middleweights
I always loved Asham's fights
Rosehill's a douche who's managed 79 NHL games in 11 years of pro hockey, almost all of those with the Leafs who never made the playoffs during that time. Anyone notice he has 5 inches on Asham? The chickens***. Asham's got balls. And he's played 840 games in the NHL, and fought 101 times. Last game against Montreal Rosehill tried to start a fight with Max Pacioretty who has 1 fight a year and a concussion history.
I'm giving it a draw...Asham got the first big punch, harder than anything Rosehill threw, then they exchanged several non lethal punches. Asham went down twice but that had nothing to do with with Rosehill did
Asham is out of his prime.
rosehill looks good, not sure if all landed but there sure is a lot of fists thrown.. enough to get a win IMO. apart from 1st puch asham gets nothing going
Total domination by Rosehill
Rosehill took care of Asham easily.
WOW! Double A get whoooped. Announcer says Asham got the first punch butit was Rosehills first that set the tone and Asham never recovered. Asham went down got up and Rosebud gave him some more. Im an Asham fan but he got dusted
I have a ton of respect for Asham and wish he was still in O&B. Truly a fearless fighter. Rosehill gets an expected win, though. Great to see a true HW playing regularly in Philly.
Lots of missed punches in this one. Rosehill still takes it narrowly, but it was a lot closer in reality than what it initially looked like.
Asham gets in the 1st punch, but it's downhill for him from there.
...that's the best I've seen Rosehill look -- he was really bangin' Asham around,...
It is never a bad thing when Asham gets beat up.
I thought the video was sped up, there were a lot of punches thrown. Win Rosehill
Love seeing Asham's head snapping back like a PEZ Dispenser!
Rosehill goes crazy southpaw on Asham, who can't answer.... Special thanks to all those who took the time to message me, or other Bruins fans, and express their thoughts and sympathy for the innocent people in Boston that were injured... The hockey community has a lot of class, and you all showed it... As one radio announcer put it, "You may shake us, but you'll never break us..."
entertaining bout lots of punches thrown, rosehill connected with some good ones and took the clear win
Rosehill smoked 'eem.
Rosehill wins this one easily to my surprise. Asham is as tough as they come but couldn't stop the flurry of lefts whenever he tried to throw.
The caveman rosehill wins another one, slight edge in size here, but Asham is a "has been" anyway
really good scrap but i'd like to see Pee Pee Laviolette and John TURDarella go at it ...
Great fight.not much landed asham with the harder landed
wow you homers from NY give the win or draw to Asham? wtf are you smoking ,that's an easy no doubt win from Rosehill. good cheap head butt from asham at the end should be suspended for that one.
A Flyer beating on a Ranger, thankfully some things never change.
The best shot was the Asham straight right that pops Rosehill in the face...then it was all downhill from there as Rosehill takes over and feeds Asham a bunch of lefts that knock him to the ice. Win Rosey
Except for the first shot Rosey controlled the flow of the fight. Plus he got the #3 star of the game so the fight was a momentum changer, which is why they are supposed to fight.
