Barnaby was awesome with the Sabres. He did everything: scored goals, fought, stuck up for his teammates, stirred up s**t. He was my favorite Sabre.

Linden is Lucky Ray was exhausted at the time of this tussle. Even though he was tired, Ray still emerged victorious.

Ray never won the fight. How Trevor wins? CONDITIONING!

Looks like Linden held his own against a heavyweight, and thus gets the win. Ray is a bit of a D-bag for going after a classy, talented star player who rarely partakes in the fisticuffs.

Matt Barnaby was a real POS. Deserved to have his career ended with a head shot.

Full credit to Linden for hanging in on this one, being someone who isn't known for being much of a fighter. Most stars and skill players who get grabbed by a true heavyweight just turtle, or tuck their heads and hold on for dear life. Nice to see Trevor actually stand up and connect with a few later in the bout. He didn't look the least bit out of place with Ray, even though he had less fights in his whole career than Ray typically got in a season. It's mostly a draw, but I WANT to give it to Linden because by the end of the fight, he was the only one landing punches and was clearly stronger on his feet. A skill player fighting a goon to a draw is as good as a win in the eyes of his teammates.
