First off, I like Avery (insert hate comment here). Second, clean hit by Neil on Avery. Third, gotta give the win to Strudwick.

Posted by Formerref on October 07, 2007 at 07:06 AM

Ok fight, edge to Neil. Nothing wrong at all with hit on Avery.

Posted by canada bomber on October 09, 2007 at 07:08 PM

how come strudwick always seems to look like hes about to fall over and get tossed around .. one of these times hes gonna get knocked rite on the button when hes open like that holding on with one arm and i'll b there to say i told ya so

First, the hit was not clean. If you cant see his elbow high and the follow through with the elbow, then you are just either dumb or dishonest. Nex, do you think that Neil will ever fight a fighter? He always seems teamed up against the teams 5th or 6th penalty minute leader. If he fights a real fighter, I'd change my mind, but to me, Neil goes after small guys --catches them when they dont look, then complains to the press how he thinks they were clean. Is the first? 3rd, 7th time? The fact that he lists his weight as 209 is a joke --and purely to make it seem as though he is not that big. Sure--Mike fisher is bigger than him. give me a break. the guys whole design is to go after small guys. in america -they call that a bully. i'll bet anyone is he not under 225--so why the deception? What a coward. by the way,,i; give the fight a draw--because i can see the real story--despite my beliefs. those people who dislike avery--or are senator fans--prove why they are neil fans--when they claim they cant see an elbow. no wonder u like the guy---cheap likes cheap.

Good scrap but even better hit by Neil, the only thing that made the hit look a little sketchy is Avery made a rookie mistake, he tried skating with his head down. Anyone that thinks this is a dirty hit hasnt played the game, GREAT HIT!!! :)

Posted by trueblue3044 on November 04, 2007 at 01:04 PM

great bout. got to give the win to strudwick. hit on avery was questionable but neil got what was comin to him.

Posted by zeppelinfan on October 09, 2007 at 04:44 PM

Aiight fight, total draw.The hit on avery was perfectly clean. the only reason anyone saw any elbow is called "FOLLOWING THROUGH"!!!!!!!!!! Neil is a great player and can kick anyones ass in a fight. anyone who thinks neil is dirty is a total idiot. even the rangers were saying that the hit was clean.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 01, 2015 at 01:08 AM

very close draw... strudwick is a douche bag

Posted by barnibizer on October 07, 2007 at 06:51 AM

Give this a draw, but may even sway a touch to Studwick...am a fan of Neil but he caught with a couple of big shots in this one. Great hit on Avery by Neil earlier in game...makes u wonder why he isnt getting suspended for a head shot...maybe becos Avery got back up.

Strudwick takes this one but only 'cause he landed one real quality punch and drew blood as a result. As many others did, i'll state my bias: i'm a Rangers fan. The hit on Avery was clean but was also unnecessary.....it's the kind of hit you only deliver if you're prepared to deal with the consequences. That being said, I wish Strudwick would have hammered the point home a little better so that Neil might be a little more hesitant in the future......Regardless, considering the way he plays i'm pretty sure we will see Neil caught in a fight he cant win with a team with a grudge at some point this season..........maybe Brashear, Peters, Roy or possibly Orr

Posted by suckerpunch on October 11, 2007 at 03:23 PM

I can't believe some of you retarded NOOBS. Especially Wallysy1, what a fuking idiot. I mean really, do you even like hockey??? Watch the hit again shoulder makes contact. 0 Posts and he is calling Chris Neil a coward. Get an education. FBI Agent ... LOFL!

Posted by slysi on July 20, 2016 at 04:47 PM

AGAIN ...... sad when the site has to kick open the history fault to fill the bill !

Posted by Captain Crunch28 on October 09, 2007 at 09:36 PM

Jason Strudwick vs Chris Neil Neil puts a hit on Strudwick behind the play, Strudwick is not happy with the hit and they drop the gloves. Strudwick gets in a few solid rights, as Neil gets it going with the lefts. Strudwick connects with a couple nice lefts, then Neil responds with a few solid lefts of his own. Neil then switches to his right, connecting with a couple of them. After that, Neil rips off Strudwick's helmet, and connects with a solid left. Strudwick throws a couple more lefts, hitting Neil's helmet. Both combatants are showing signs of exhaustion, and the linesmen decide to step in.

Posted by orland on October 07, 2007 at 06:24 AM

Good tilt. Strudwick stepping up for the cheap shot elbow to Avery's head by Neil. Hard fought draw.

Posted by Cendro on November 02, 2007 at 01:27 PM

I hate Chris Neil so much, but respect him so much as a fighter. He is one of the last guys in the league I would drop the gloves against. He got a few sqaure shots in on Strudwick. I've got to hand it to Strudwick though, he held his own.

Posted by trpaulson on October 07, 2007 at 03:23 PM

Neil wins. If Strudwick is gonna start jawing someone, he better be ready to back it up. Nice to see Neil not have to turtle.

Posted by gmathiak123 on October 10, 2007 at 08:09 PM

The only thing Strudwick had on Neil was reach. It is a good thing too because Neil would have broken his neck or given him whiplash at least. Winner is Neil, really the only one trying to fight in this one. I think Strudwick was just waiting the whole time for the linesmen to step in, what a SISSY.

Posted by Sukoshi84 on October 07, 2007 at 02:21 AM

strudwick hit whole lotta helmet............ neils hit on avery was clean

Posted by bigdude on October 17, 2007 at 03:35 PM

Neil got in the better shots.

Posted by islandersfan39 on February 20, 2008 at 12:47 PM

chris neil wins most fights he is just a tough costomer who picks his battles well good for u neil BOO RANGERS

Posted by powpow on October 10, 2007 at 02:44 PM

CLEAR DRAW...anything else is just homers or haters. wallysy1 what are you talking about? No elbow, just the arm coming up on the follow through. Elbow is when the Elbow contacts the head pal. Your letting your bias get the better of you. Yes they list his weight wrong so that it fools people into thinking that he is not as big as he is so that he does not get in trouble for cheap hits? Are you serious, do you really think that?

Posted by mr putzoo on October 07, 2007 at 12:45 PM

Edge to Strudwick. He landed the best shots. In fact, if Neil had any teeth he would og got them knocked out.

Posted by mjb4fly on October 08, 2007 at 07:23 AM

very even scrap very justifed for strudwick to fight neil although that elbow chris neil likes to throw around will end up getting him severly injured as soon as someone real tough gets a hold of him

Posted by NoKnuckles on October 08, 2007 at 01:04 PM

Strudwick looked like he landed better punches and busted Neil's lip.

Posted by leafsfan2028 on October 18, 2007 at 10:55 PM

Neil takes a head shot to Avery which sets this up. Neil is a big talker but can't deliver and again when push comes to shove he is on teh short end. Ever wonder why Neil never goes after a heavyweight like Boogaard or Big Georges? Cause he is a chicken.

Posted by capsfloors on October 08, 2007 at 09:14 AM

Struds with the win here...landed more punches as well as the better of the punches...Im a Ranger fan and I thought the Neil hit was clean...the elbow was a follow through only....I thought his hit last year on Drury was clean too....A bit hypocritical though for him to complain about Downey's hit on McCammond for getting hit while his head was down...Neil makes a living at it!

Posted by mAnYsTyLeS on October 08, 2007 at 01:56 PM

The hit on Avery was clean and I'm a Ranger's fan. Strudwick won this fight because Neil's mouth was bloodied (meaning a good connection) plus it seemed as if Strud's punches were more cleaner and angled in harder (considering he's taller). Chris Neil is a p*ssy and will be hurt soon....you'll see ;) WHERE THE HELL WAS COLTON ORR???

Posted by Autoproxy on October 07, 2007 at 09:14 AM

Basically even fight, slight edge to Strudwick b/c Neil had to go to the locker room to fix his bleeding mouth.

Posted by lennyranger on February 18, 2008 at 08:55 PM

very close fight. strudwick was able to land back to back punches near the end of the fight to pull out the win.

Posted by Jordybats99 on February 25, 2016 at 08:23 PM

Decent Fight. Give the edge to Jason Strudwick.

Posted by Juha82 on October 10, 2007 at 02:45 PM

Very interesting fight to call. Neil is a smart fighter, like we all fight fans to know. I liked of this one of Neil's activity. He looked better than Strudwick. But seriously Strudwick landed better punches here. I can't see very well Neil for the winner. Maybe the best call can be a draw, i don't know. I give edge to Strudwick. Neil haven't ever been very hard puncher. To think guys, what if he would was...

Posted by expothecat on November 02, 2007 at 10:52 AM

Strudwick with more quality punches.

Posted by Flames9339 on October 10, 2007 at 02:28 AM

Edge to Strudwick for landing the harder punches.

Posted by Plateworker on October 07, 2007 at 11:52 PM

I don't know how anyone can say this was a win for Neil the guy got his face busted up, bleeding from his lip and cheek yet somehow he won....ok Win Struds

Posted by Scott4 on October 07, 2007 at 03:58 PM

Very good scrap. Both landed some pretty nice punches and IMO Strudwick shot better punches than Neil. So very close win for Strudwick! Hit on Avery looks clean..but maybe i'm wrong ;).

Posted by plum29 on October 11, 2007 at 08:36 PM

awesome spirited scrap. got to go with Strudwick. landed the bigger shots.

Posted by megnlou06 on October 08, 2007 at 10:56 PM

great fight!

Posted by mikebflorida on October 10, 2007 at 10:30 AM

I hate Chris Neil. How many people does he have to hurt before the league does something? He's such a puke bucket. The good news? He hurt Sean Avery, someone I loathe almost as much as Neil. Struds landed some bombs but Neil gave back some good shots as well. I called it a draw.

Posted by NYRangers3068 on October 08, 2007 at 12:53 AM

Neil was cut

Posted by The Chief on October 07, 2007 at 10:06 AM

Neil is such a p%ssy. He was talking all that sh^t on Steve Downie for the hit on McAmmond. How bout that hit on Avery, big guy? Hit a man when his head is down "that's just not right....we're not trying to kill people here". You are an assh*le Neil. I guess it's OK for you though j#rkoff.

Posted by mailman1194 on October 08, 2007 at 02:50 AM

Neil always goes in forearm/elbows high. Look at the game against Buffalo last season. The guy is a piece of crap. I wouldn't mind seeing some more senators keeping McAmmond company. Strudwick landed the better shots and Neil's mouth showed it. Win Struds.

Posted by robtk14 on October 07, 2007 at 11:08 AM

Watch the video people, Neil was gargling blood after the fight. May not look like it during the fight, but I think Strudwick is the clear winner
