i call it a draw,brookbank landed some good shots as well,rypien well,he missed alot as well,to me its a clear cut draw,they both landed some good shots and missed some.brookbank landed for straight shots to the forehead of rypien...gave it a draw and a 6
Anaheim is such a waste of talent.Get rid of Donger and put in ANYBODY else as a coach and they'd be a contender...especially in fights
Rypien could give the ''stached-one'' some pointers on how to actually win a hockey fight. This guy's fun to watch...where's he been?
I swear, If rypien weighed like 30 more pounds. He'd be a Tie Domi status fighter.
Ripper throws with speed and not a lot of wasted punches. Looks as if most found there mark. No major damage done. He reminds me of Ol' Vandy but better defense (or maybe looser skin so he doesn't cut as easily). Win for Ripper in a close one.
Good scrap enjoyed it immensly rypian handled him self well
RYPIEN IS THE WINNER. THE DUCK PLAYERS ARE CRAP.
impressive win for rr
i love Rypien... this guy got heart.. he's like 170pounds but always take on ppl 200+
I think you could hear a pin drop in Vancouver, dont they like fights?!
WIN Rypien. Rick Rypien continues to impress. Welcome back!
Rypien wanted it, he got it and won
Rypien wins easy.
Slight edge for Rypien
Don't f*ck with the Ripper. So glad he's back!
In my mind Rypien is the best pound for pound fighter in the league. If this guy was 230lbs he'd be a terror. Still the guy doesnt lose.
Rypien with the jackrabbit punches gets the win
rypien with the win in this fight.
i think i have to give this one to rypien. good fight.I think he hurt brookbank at the end. Rypien and a "6"
Rypien may be the best pound-for-pound fighter I've seen, he's smaller than Mike Keane. Watch some of his fights on youtube, against Commodore and Mike Moore he actually blocks punches with his forearms when he gets into toe-to-toe battles.....who does that??? He whooped Carcillo's ass. He's a student of hockey-fighting and reminds me a little of Dody Wood. If he can stay healthy he's gonna be a force.
Good fight that Rypien is surprising but he can't be only 170 pds.and 5'11'' something is wrong with those stats.
Wow. Rypien in only his like 8th game of the yr and second game back from injury(Sports Hernia) throttles Brookbank . Sheldon just held him away and wanted No Mo of that at the end! easy win Rypien. No body within 20lbs of his weight seems to have the slightest chance of a win
Rypien's been injured most of the season, good to see him back!
nice try by both, nothing much doing. Rypien with the win for the energy
Great to see the Ripper back and still taking a punch to give several!
Rypien with some nice on target lefts, clearly winning this scrap...
Canuck fans should be thrilled to have a "Fire Pisser" like Rypien. The kid can score goals, take on anyone, and plays with heart. Canucks brass should realize they have a Lucic type player. The only difference is that for his size he has more balls than Lucic who picks and chooses his scraps. Stay healthy Ripper!
Rypien continues to be impressive in his fights.
RR with the quick punches and hand switching gives it to BB pretty good.
Rypien gives up 36 Lbs and almost 4 inches and still beats Brookbank..... you gotta love this kid he throws em' fast and hard.
Got to give it to Rypien in this one, he's a killer. I love how he can throw them equally well with both hands. I should say that I would give Ripper extra credit for going up in weight class but he dosn't have his own weight class. The kid is fearless, let's just hope that he can stay healthy for the rest of the season and the playoffs.
Rypien is the clear winner on this one. Brookbank employed the duck and swing wildly strategy made popular by Matthew Barnaby in the 90's.
i dont see how all you people are saying that Rypien dominated, the fact is that even though he won the fight, it was actually kinda close. and just because someone got into a fight doesnt mean Vancouver automatically gets the cup.
I am glad to see Rypien throwing them again... he is quite good for his weight class.
Rypien is back and that makes for some entertaining scraps. Go check his history out they are all toe to toe, and he almost always gives up a few inches and 25+ pounds. If only he could stay healthy.... He did leave the team earlier this year after getting hurt yet again. Perhaps depressed, or contemplating his career? The usual substance abuse rumours came up. Not sure what happened or why.
Rypien looking good after a 70 game lay-off.
Rypien is an outstanding light/middleweight and proves it here easily handling a much larger guy whose no slouch either
It's good to see Rypien back. He's very much like some of the old school fighters like Tiger Williams or Stan Jonathan.
Rypien holds this fight under his belt. Good fight.
Yes. YES! He's back. Now the cup goes to Vancouver.
That was a fight...punches landed and Rypien mostly dominated.
My oh my that was a great fight. Switching them up like that, very good energetic fight. Rypien landed some nice shots. Win for Rypien and an 8. Thank you for that fellahs, showing the rest how its done! (Sight, Garrett... as a former BCian I don't really miss you very much.)
Edge Rypien, in a good fight.
Rypien early then Brookbank connected with a series of short strraight on rights, but they didn't effect Rypien at all and Rypien continued to throw and looks like he got Brookbank with a stunner near the end.
5'11", 170lbs vs 6'2, 210lbs David slays goliath.
toe to toe both fireing some quick punches...draw
"HI and chat w/ each other": gmab! Good even fight.
the Ripper with the win
Could be a draw, but Rypien seems a bit more active and probably landed a few more and better shots than his opponent. Hardly the domination the delusional Capunk homers hallucinate about.
I'm not too familiar with Rypien but he appears to be a very good scrapper. He wins despite a rather large size disadvantage
Brookbank took a while to get started. more punches by Rypien
The Rippers back!....by far The best middleweight....Rypien beats the much bigger brookbank...a 7....
Very good fight. Close one, but Rypien landed a lot more meaningful shots.
Rypien is beast. Good control in this one.
both guys got nice shots in. brook had a nice flurry early. but rypien worked him the last half of the fight. as a wild fan i love watching these two teams beat the hell out of each other.
rypien gets the dominating victory... this guy switches hands and is good at knowing where to take punches (usually off the top of the head or forehead) it also helps that most guys in the league don't know anything about him watch his fight with prust!
