This fight proved many things. Gazdic loves to throw them with no defense or care about injury. Neil is one tough bastard and a professional despite the stupid shit he occasionally pulls. If Gazdic had come about 10 years earlier he would have been a legend in the league. Unfortunately he has only been around long enough to show us what could have been. Two tough SOB's throw and take 'em like we don't see anymore. A sad reminder of what we are missing in today's game. p.s. It is very odd to see Gazdic in a Devils sweater.
That's how it used to be in this league almost every game
Heavyweight tilt. A rarity in today's NHL. I love Neil for everything that he's worth. Gazdic gets the slight edge in this one though. Gazdic is definitely a guy who came around a few years too late.
Good even scrap. Gazdic maybe landed more. Funny that Patrick from Spongebob cannot pronounce Gazdic and calls him Gadzik the entire fight.
Christine got hammered in this one. She went for the takedown after eating a steady stream of rights.
Gaz, not even close.
Gazdic has a dangerous punch and throws to knock you out. Even more impressed on how Neil's chin was able to take 'em...didn't phase him !
Very entertaining but ultimately not much substance, in that Gazdic threw a ton of punches without causing any damage. And Nasty Neil just doing his thing.
few of those punches connect flush by Gaz & Chris would've been completely destroyed... give Neil a ton of credit for not running because once Luke had the windmill going this tilt became one-sided quick.. the wily vet unable to claw his way back in as Luke's onslaught was the difference in this bitter exchange... #20 FTW
Neil gets him early. Gazdic gets a couple of helmet shots. Neil with the take down at the end.
gazdic , I hate helmets......everyone should take their helmets off when fighting......
Even my ass announcer as Gazdic beat the hell out of Neil!Any one say anything else and I will kick the crap out of you Homers!
Welcome back Luke
good effort by both but gazdic's reach advantage was the difference here..and 7
That pussy Neil not man enough to take off his helmet seeing Gazdic had his off !!
love it, the good days of nhl , and nobody in stands not loving it.
Great scrap both were throwing hard and receiving I gave the slight edge to Gazdic ......old timer Neil really has some heart doesn't he Scored this a 7
a great tilt edge at the end for Gazdic
ALL RIGHT!!! That was worth the ticket price. Moon face's head must be like an anvil and that's what Gazdic did to it...beat on it.
Chris Neal being Chris Neal, and regretting it after Gazdic hits him more than several times. At one point, you can see Neil thinking, "shit, this might not work out for me...better push this guy to the wall/ground."
ok fights, lots of try, but lots of misses. Gazdic did land a few more. The shots that landed were hard and both guys showed a good beard.
Good fight. Edge Gazdic.
good rock em sock em bout...Gazdic's size had a lot to do with his win over Neil...
wow very good scrap between two tough dudes. Gazdic with the slight edge.
Gazdic with the win ..... Neil with the iron jaw ..... Don't see many like this any more
don't like neil , but whether you like him or hate him, this guy can take a punch! I know all those bombs gazdic threw didn't land , but a few did and neil wasn't even phased! pretty tough hombre'. edge to gazdic
Neil landed a few, Gazdic threw more and landed more to get the win in a good scrap. Props to Neil and his granite chin, many others would've been lying on the ice after taking a few of those.
Gazdic beats the crap out of the pumpkin headed retard
Welcome back Luke.....Neil can take a punch...
Good to see Ned Stark back in the NHL and seeing Chris Neal eat a lot of punches, Win for Gazdic
Even the possible eye pokes by Neil, didn't save him from taking a few more hits ! At least he had enough sense not to try and show boat to the home crowd after getting the worst of this one
Luke with more energy in the Fight , this one's Easy .
You gotta love that one
Is Gazdic the heavyweight champ now? Like him or not Neil is a tough dude.
great tilt Gazdic with the clear W
What a haymaker contest. I had my hopes up that I would finally see Neil get pummeled, but this was a fairly even tilt. I'm going slight edge to Luke, but this one was very close. Props to these guys for going all offense for most of ot.
Not sure how anyone can call that an even fight, nor give it to Neil...
2 heavyweights that create excitement every time they get on the ice. I counted Luke as the winner with many more connections.
have to give the win to Luke because he landed more punches....but I'm still in your corner Chris
Zebras stayed out of the way in this one! Gotta go with a draw
Despite what it looked like, I'm going with a draw. Neil with clean punches in an early jump, followed by an impressive flurry of misses and glancing blows by Gaz. While he does get a few good ones in, Neil's defensive rhythm is as good as it gets..
Bombs from downtown tossed by both bruisers. Good fight. Total draw when Gazdic went to the ice after getting his arm tied up.
That was a great fight! Very close battle and both guys had their hits!
Names lived up to the hype.
I don't think a single Gazdic punch landed (maybe 1??) ... but, I like Neal with the face wash ... but if they did, watch out.
Neil just keeps going. Way to go old man!
Gazdik is not good enough to play regularly in the NHL, I m very surprise to see him in New Jersey.
These two have had some great scraps. This was like the good old days. Too bad Gazdic wont be around long as guys like him don't seem to be wanted anymore. At first i thought Gazdic landed many bombs, but most were helmet shots, but bad intentions by both guys.
Like to watch Gazdic fight. Good showing by Neil but the edge to Gazdic.
Great scrap, two of the best at what they do.
Neil can still take a punch. Gazdic finishes with fury to eke out the win in this FOTY candidate.
Great old school fight from these two warriors. Slight win Gazdic. Huge win fans!!
Neil is the ultimate warrior but time and the game are closing in
Neiler is one tough dude, slight edge to gazdic but props to the old timer for standing toe to toe with a legitimate heavyweight.
Old man Neil hangs in with monster Gazdic. Draw or smallest edge to Gazdic
Top fight of the year is well earned here. Id say the fight is even with the acception that neil is throwing with the left instead of his natural right. If your keeping up with a guy throwing with the wrong hand imagine what the right feels like. Slight edge to neil for landing the better shots flush to the face at the start
That was all Gazdic.... Looked like Neil never could get ahold of Gazds and that allowed Gazdic to just unload on him. Neil got the first couple in but that was about it. Gazdic and a 7
Gazdic just shades it. Good bout
You don't see too many fights like these anymore. Two guys letting them fly. I felt like Gazdic landed more quality shots and I gave him the edge.
you guys are all smoking rocks apparently, saying it looked pretty even...Did I see a different fight than the rest of you somehow?? Gazdic beats Neil's ass plain and simple. I haven't pumpkinhead lose that bad in a very long time... I still doubt that Neil even felt it though due to the cement his head is filled with. I'd rather be Neil's head tomorrow morning than Gazdic's right hand, that's for sure...lg/7
Good to see Gazdic back in the NHL where he belongs. Need more character guys like him in this boring league. He gets the edge in this one over an all time tough guy in Chris Neil.
Damn, Chris Neil is just a hard man. To be doing what he is doing at his age and at this stage of his career night in and night out... Just a rare freak specimen of human. Tried to hate this guy over the years but it's time to give old pumpkin head his due. People who got to watch this night in night out in the capital city over his craeer are the real winners. Not many like him around anymore.
Neil got the early jump and held his own against Big Luke. Too close to call and a Draw.
Neil is the progeny of a bag of cement and Randal Tex Cobb. Has that guy ever been KO'd?
This isn't a vote of which player you like more.
