chris niel is an idiot..no wonder he has no teeth

Posted by toytiger on November 08, 2007 at 05:32 PM

very good scrap both guys landed quality shots

Posted by headcharge on November 08, 2007 at 02:00 PM

All Neil early, all Boulton late...No KO's. Gotta call it a draw

Posted by Juha82 on November 08, 2007 at 09:39 AM

'Neil controlled mostly, but Boulton is dangerous. He taked the end clearly. Neil landed more, but Boulton landed harder. A draw, maybe slight edge/edge Neil. But i choice a draw, because Boulton ended up strongly.

Great fight.

Posted by nait on January 03, 2012 at 08:06 AM

it was hard to keep track of who got what landed so im gonna have to say draw but one good fight

Posted by SoCalSensFan on November 02, 2007 at 12:10 PM

The fight wasn't that great. What pissed me off was that the commontaters on NHL Center Ice (who were from Atlanta) thought that Neil, at the end of the fight, was gesturing for the officials to break it up. Anyone who has seen Neil fight knows he was calling for some noise from the fans.

Posted by matty323 on November 02, 2007 at 06:59 PM

Neiler steps up again. No matter what people say about him being dirty, the reality is he's been fighting less and becoming a better forward. Gotta love asking for the crowd reaction. To the guy who thinks chara is some sort of big tough guy, realize that hes a WRESTLER. Hes not a fighter.. watch the fight where he hurt his hand on cromagnon man Eric Cairns head ((Then proceeded to suck ass for the rest of the season as a senator, ). Or the barnaby fight, he should have won just with the reach I still have a soft spot for the way ole' Chara threw around that douchebag mccabe. #25 rules.

Leafs2006 your full of sh$t loser. Go blow Mats...

Posted by Formerref on November 08, 2007 at 03:47 PM

Gotta love that Neil, has learned to play the game, still has a rock hard jaw and a showman!!

Posted by Double EE on November 02, 2007 at 06:01 PM

Neil all the way...he didn't even take Boulton seriously. You didn't see Boulton showing off in the middle of the fight...

Posted by Bleak5170 on November 02, 2007 at 01:40 PM

This was a really decent scrap imo. Both guys landed at least one really good shot, but I give the edge to Neil for being more aggressive. Boulton looked like he didn't really want to go.

Posted by bostonrs555 on November 08, 2007 at 09:28 PM

I love when Neil beats on current and former buffalo sabres. buffalo sucks. buffalo hater, proud of it!!!!!

Posted by Diehardfan419 on November 08, 2007 at 05:35 PM

Good fight, but Boulton won it.

Posted by Sublimezx on November 08, 2007 at 10:31 AM

Pretty good fight! I like watching 2 dirty players get punched in the face at the same time! Too bad they didn't knock each other out! Neil got him so good early that despite Boultons late flurry, it goes to Neil!

Posted by Mcgyvr on March 21, 2010 at 11:40 AM

First, who the hell tries to fight in the Stanly Cup finals? Second, what were these announcers watching?

Posted by SCOTTSO on November 08, 2007 at 05:50 PM

GREAT FIGHT,LOVED IT,HAD TO WATCH A FEW TIMES TO DECIDE ON WINNER , NIEL SHOWED GREAT TECHNIQUE IN TYING UP BOLTON IN THE FIRST 40 SECONDS AND LANDING SOME SOLID SHOTS.THE LAST 20 SECONDS WERE BOULTONS EXCEPT FOR THE JAB THAT BUCKLED BOULTON WHICH IN MY MIND WAS THE DECIDING FACTOR EDGE NIEL. TO MATTY 323 WHAT DOES THAT MEAN HES A WRESTLER NOT A FIGHTER,HIS FATHER WAS A WRESTLER AND DID YOU SEE KOCI'S FACE AFTER THE FIGHT.CHARA COULD BE THE STRONGEST PLAYER IN LEAGUE,PUT THAT TOGETHER WITH HIM HAVING GORILLA ARMS,IF YOU DONT GET INSIDE ON HIM YOUR IN TROUBLE JUST ASK DAVID KOCI

Posted by Dovermv on November 02, 2007 at 06:10 PM

Leafs2006 I think you need to check his fight card from last year. About 90% of the people he drop the gloves with are bigger than him. The only thing worse than a loud mouth is an ignorant loud mouth that doesn’t know what he is talking about, get your facts straight if you are going to run your mouth.

Posted by ufclover on November 09, 2007 at 11:39 AM

man neils a champ,he was waving his arms in the air trying to get the crowd into it while boulton was throwing punches at him and neil landed that really nice left that hurt boulton,great fight id have to say neil by decision

Posted by mike tyson on November 09, 2007 at 01:23 PM

Neils an idiot, enough said

Posted by Remyy on November 10, 2007 at 11:53 AM

what a douche

Posted by NoKnuckles on November 05, 2007 at 12:13 PM

Neil is a pussy... always will be. May wanted to go with him in the Cup Finals last year and Neil turned him down. What a joke... May is 8 years older than him.

Posted by slav on November 09, 2007 at 09:05 AM

Boulton was more consistent. Wasn't dominant but landed better.

Posted by Clark75 on January 04, 2012 at 11:42 AM

Gotta love how Neil show boats, then gets his a$$ kicked. HAHAHAHA! what a tool.

Posted by Gunslinger on November 08, 2007 at 09:50 PM

Very surprised by Boultons performance in this one. He beat arguably the best light heavy in the league in Neil. Good job Eric!

Posted by rluciano on November 02, 2007 at 05:52 PM

Neil is a idiot. He tought the fight was over and took 2 or 3 hits. Good fight but would be beter w/ a KO and Neil laid on the ice.

Posted by stewdog on November 02, 2007 at 03:16 PM

Pretty good scrap. Neil lands a nice left but Boulton closes strong. It appears that Neil is ready to call it quitsat the end.

Posted by midmusq on December 22, 2007 at 06:57 PM

I'm gonna give Boulton the edge as Neil was begging the linesmen to come in.

Posted by dromano13 on November 09, 2007 at 09:44 PM

Neil got his ass whacked. You have go to be kidding me. The puss that he is was begging for the linesmen to break it up. This ssame moron committed a double that cost his team two goals and almost the game. Neil is worthless!

Posted by waffleboy on November 09, 2007 at 05:24 PM

This is what hockey fights are all about. One guy trying to pump his team up. Bolts took on Neil and git his team motivated.

Posted by shedthemitts on November 16, 2007 at 09:44 AM

Back and forth scrap, Neil got cocky and ate some rights at the end as a result. Boulton gets the edge here.

Posted by mokan33 on November 02, 2007 at 04:14 PM

Neil looked like he was almost having fun out there, trying to get the crowd into it. He took a couple, but he had the upper hand most of the fight. Entertaining bout. Edge Neil

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 01, 2015 at 01:11 AM

nice little tilt there, pretty even for a while, but boulton really came on strong at the end and hurt neil

Posted by bobnknoxville on November 08, 2007 at 05:32 PM

Always nice to see Neil take a few shots.

Posted by Leafs2006 on March 27, 2009 at 12:41 PM
