Other Penalties: Campbell received an instigator and misconduct.
my how our opinions of people change eh? still an eager fan - probably one of the only ones left... - updated DEC 19 2008 fair weather posters allllllllllllllllll over this board loving eager...now wont even call his fights fair.
I was at the game. It was great to Gauthier get crushed by Adams ... you live by the sword, you die by the sword ...
Eager won easily but i do agree w/ tomryanbrooklyn he is a disgrace to the game.
another new era "fight"
the linesman were clearly panther fans
Props to Campbell for going ... but if he keeps this up, he'll get my nomination for biggest punching bag.
I agree with JBTodd61, this new era fighting is bullshit. Remember the Joey Kocur, Rob Ray days when it was shot for shot and the best man won. I cannot stand when these guys turn away and hold each other at bay andtry to hit "over the shoulder" head shots. Stand there and square off, and I guarantee it will get my vote for fight of the year. This link is what i am talking about. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ap_eXEWLJY
REFS NEED TO LET THEM FIGHT AND BE SO QUICK TO BREAK IT UP.
The linesman saved Campbell from a real beating. Was Gregory just trying to smell the type of Detergent thr flyers use?
LET THEM GO!!!
not even close.. eager was the only one throwing!!!
"Ben Eager a disgrace""look at his fight card, he fights middle-weights" Last time I checked, Eager is a middle- weight. Because a guy fights, doesn't mean he has to fight someone twice his size. Eager vs. McGratten, yeah you're right , that would be a good one. If Eager is a p**** for not fighting McGratten then the NHL is full of p******. In this fight, Campbell comes in gloves off grabbing Eager before he can even get his gloves off. I really don't think Eager had a choice but to fight Campbell. Yet you're going to hold it against him. Campbell is very lucky he didn't get K.T.F.O.
I think Campbell was high or something or dazed from the hit. Why would he go after Eager knowing he would get bent over?
The refs saved the dude on Florida. Eager was going to kill him
Linesmen in way too early. Saved Campbell a worse beating than he got from Eager. What was Campbell thinking about anyway?
I don't know what Campbell was thinking thtere. Next time you go in and get an instigator, try to at least get the jump on the guy and land a few punches. Eager just fed him rights and even though they were to the back of the head, he gets the win because he just overpowered him. The refs jumping in was a disgrace, especially since it was Campbell who got the instigator.
Ben Eager owned Gregory Campbell. He got an instigator and din't do jack. At least throw a couple of punches, but he just stood there and took it. The refs broke it up too early though.
ha eager is a bust...
good thing the refs jumped in early to save campbell's kid, eager would have put him in the hospital.
to say a guy who weighs 215 is not a heavyweight is foolish. i like eagers game but until the ranger game he hasnt fought anybody worthwhile.
Linesmen used mercy rule :(
Wat was Camobell thinkin..Eagers the man..tomryanbrooklyn..ur a FAG
to tomryanbrooklyn: ben eager is not a heavyweight which is why he fights players like this a lot. hes a small, quick dude who always gets into fights because of his huge hits. how does that make him a "disgrace"? in all of his interviews he never talks about fighting and never claims to be a tough guy, he just plays his style and if someone goes at him he defends himself. and keep in mind he is also a rookie, so maybe he wants to take on a lot of smaller guys and work his way up to the heavywights? either way the league needs a lot more players like ben eager. he has been the most entertaining player BY FAR for the pathetic flyers this season. i love this dude.
campbell was the one who started the fight and got his lessen...eager wins
love eager, if the refs didnt stop this dude would have been bleeding all over the ics. benny mother fucking eager.
Can't believe the Ref's broke it up that early
Campbell never had a chance ... lucky the refs jumped in!
Eager would've killed him if the ref's didn't save Campbell. Dumb move on Campbell's part.
Campbell was about to get his ass handed to him but the refs stepped in there way too early. Nevertheless Eager threw a load before the zebras got in so i'm giving the win to him.
I don't think that Campbell even threw any punches... and the refs broke it up too quickly. Eager was winning and clearly would have dominated him.
Campbell is a scumbag, droppin his gloves before Eager knew they were fighting. Thank god he got his ass kicked, even with the early jump.
Ben Eager is a disgrace. Look at his fight card; it is filled with middleweights and non-fighters. He has passed on fights with McGratton and Parker but get a 5'11", 190 lb. Greg Campbell and Eager suddenly grows a pair.
