OK, OK, I knew Behn Wilson was going to use this as evidence that Wilson is not a legit tough guy. While he is probably correct -- Wilson should just be a true power forward and not a fighter, after all he was a first round pick -- it still hurts that the Caps rely on a 20 year 1st rounder to protect their stars because the rest of the team talks BS in the press but does not back it up . . . The Caps need more Canadian and US kids (maybe a Fin or 2) and fewer Marcus Johansons (and NO Brooks Laich of course)
Fart in my salad
Wilson is a punk and was dishing out cheap hits the whole game. I wish Reaves had hit him 10-20 more times.
reaves is much stronger and he put wilson off balance quickly.but i like that wilson forced reaves to this fight knowing that he would probably lose it...win reaves in a short fight
As expected but with Wilson having the shield and tank armor on his head, Reaves is reduced to pounding away at the back of the head and driving the overmatched Wilson to the ice. Dirty hit by the Capital by the way. Why do these dopes keep hitting guys in the numbers near the boards? It aint rocket science.
Domination and a clear win by Ryan Reaves...Reaves is a Beast!!! Toughest one in the league so far....
I give this one to Reaves. Not much.
Reaves has to step in for Ott who hit by Backstrom, thus forcing Wilson to step in for him. 5 and a draw, but man, Reaves is strong as hell.
Wilson, for his size, is a sloppy awkward fighter... Even lost to one of the Schenn sisters last season... He should stick to fighting middleweights.....
Down goes Wilson! Down goes Wilson! That sums up this fight and a win for Reaves! Behn Wilson right for a change?
This is the not so wicked Wilson......who doesn't know how to Pickett.....and yes I did have to stoop low for that one........this Wilson looks more like the Castaway Wilson floating away in a boat ....much to the chagrin of Tom Hanks...... Easy win for superman Reeves......lol
Reaves with textbook enforcing!
Good scrap. Lots of helmet punches.
good night 2 of my favorite fighterss Reeves as usual
I don't see that as a lopsided bout at all-- pretty close, they each landed one shot. Wilson's the better of the two, but Reeves caught him falling down. I don't think Wilson will shy away from a mother shot at Reeves by any means in the future
Uncharacteristically hit by Backstrom leads to Reaves having a chat with him.. Which leads to Wilson having a chat with Reaves which leads to Wilson getting a butt kicking by Reaves.. I hope Backstrom bought him a steak or something for it.. Wilson honorable but, a bit out of your class buddy.. Also Ryan Reaves at this pace has the potential to win Fighter of the Year this year.. Let's all take that in...
Reaves smacked Wilson right on the button. End of fight. Winner Reaves.
Yes, Tom Wilson, Reaves is that strong!! You will remember that next time you fight him!! Backstrom gets away with a cheapshot & some Capital is going to answer for that, since Backstrom won't/can't fight.
Wilson steps in after a dirty hit by his centerman. Reaves and Wilson throw some punches with some nasty intent early but nothing lands. Reaves earholes Wilson with a solid right and pops Wilson's helmet off. Reaves by TKO
another white boy assaulted by a canadian.
Reaves wins easily.
Reaves (looking beastly in this year's crop) provides even more evidence to my ongoing and often disputed theory... That Wilson... is not a real "tough guy" and probably never was
That last shot buckled Wilson significantly.
I wasn't sure what Wilson wanted to do, fight or get a room the way he was hugging Reaves in the beginning.
I like Wilson but Reaves takes this one.
Wilson is fearless...but Reaves is a beast. He wins easily. Backstrom should have got a penalty for the cheap hit and Wilson shouldn't have saved him from the beating he had coming. Bettman's rules suck!
Reaves scares me.
A real ass-woop'en. I was 50 feet away.
I like the fact that Wilson jumped in for his buddy, but man did he ever get his ass kicked by Reaves, the instigator in this one. Win to Reaves, but kudo's to Wilson for sticking up for Latta.
Reaves big punch, Win
Reaves just destroyed Wilson.
Wilson is a punk...likes to hit light weights, but can't back it up when faced with a real fighter.
Willy kicked his ass
Not that Reaves is an easy opponent to go against, but whatever happened to Tom Wilson - New Fighter Extraordinaire from last season? Reaves takes this one in just about every way possible.
I like Wilson, but he should not fight real tough guys. Reaves all the way.
So visors are completely acceptable in brawls now, huh? That sucks. If you're going to take on the tough guy to distract him from your teammate, you should do it honorably. Guess that's too old school. Win Reaves.
Ott deserves what he gets, but that was a cheap shot by Backstrom. Then Reaves with a big shot to the ear hole. Win Reaves.
Reaves got the fight he wanted last year in this scrap that Wilson really shouldn't have wanted any part of.
It looked like Reaves stunned him a bit with that right - and through the helmet to boot. Wilson will think twice before engaging Reaves again I expect.
Wilson gets bullied and embarrassed.
Reaves hammers Wilson and dominates in this scrap. It looked like Wilson landed a nice shot on Reaves and things went south for the young Wilson from there. Good to see the big guys throwin hands.
By my count Reaves landed about 10 to 15 hits Wilson got maybe 5 in, but it was Reaves last 2 to 3 punches the knocked Wilson down! The boxing lessons that Reaves has been taking are paying off!
