not all that great a fight, Brash through a lot of nothing punches and Cam through none
Ok. Brashier was very timid when he came into the league and became a dominant fighter his second season as a canuck. That year he fought more than anyone else and didn't lose or draw a fight and pounded most of all he came up against including Probert , McSorely etc. He actually went toe-to toe all the time, his lefts were just too fast and too devasting for the competition to live. Neely was also a dominant southpaw who beat enforcers like McRae and Baumgartner top five fighters in their day, which makes you wonder how he would have done if played an enforcer role, 20+ fights a year etc. Brashier was in the same league as Probert, (beat him most of the times they met) - and played 1000 games because he was a smart fighter (ie huggy bear in the second half of his career). Would have been nice to see the Neely go in his prime though...
i give brash the win,but why would brash go at it with neely knowing,his problems with his knees and hip.neely wasn't a fighter at the end of his career,to bad cause he was still young but injuries and surgeries caught up.i give neely alot of heart but at this stage he shouldn't have to do it.i think it was more or less out of pride.but man could he score till the end.brash with the cheap win on a guy who realy couldn't throw his weight into it...to bad brash didn't fight neely in his prime,now that would be an ass woopin for brash for sure!!!! originalsix dn't be a douche bag all your life ok.oh and by the way that cut on neely was from a stick a few games before that was recut.neely landed two at the beginning and brash had a pretty god welt under his left eye.i changed my mind draw!!!for a injured neely..oh clearly neely is much stronger than brash,he threw him down pretty easy...must say though brash was holding pretty well himself...your a douche originalsix
lousy fight for neely. it was the end of his days on bruins, did not fight much. he was hurt anyways.
Sadly, this was Neely's final fight because he realized that he could no longer win out over his decomposing body. Due to the knee injury (which then turned his calf muscle into calcified bone) his hips became totally messed up as well and he couldn't swing with any sort of efficiency (stand up and try throwing swinging punches without moving your hips). Too bad this fight could not have happened earlier in his career.
Great job by Brashear to tie Neely up and still go on the offensive and throw. One of Neely's worst fights ever.
This was sad fight. Brashear was just too young and strong for Neely at this point in time.
Ah this brings back the memories. Neely's last season in the NHL when his knees/hip were gone. The Bruins didn't have an enforcer. Bad times...
Neely shows his age here as he just can't hang with Brashear who controlled this bout.
Are these votes for real? The Boston homers need to watch this one again because Neely didn't even throw a single punch! Clear WIN to Brashear. Brash unloads a flurry of lefts while Cam hugs. They open up and Brash switches hands. Cam gets the takedown and falls onto Brashear. Neely is bleeding from the beak of his nose as he skates to the box.
gotta remember neely even got the jump on brashear with the sticks up here but swung and missed (not with the stick) then he went for the grab, dale arnold even said neely never landed a clean one brashear connected with some lefts but nothing devestating, .he didn't look to put neely down cause brashear would hit with 3 or 4 fast ones,clench and then hit with a few more etc,,but then neely str8 muscled brashear down at the end..edge brashear...nothing spectatcular though
Neely did nothing but hang on and goes for the takedown-move. It's a medium-long fight where Brash unloads his typical lefts from tight position as they wrestles. He got in first a good number of lefts and some second until he got in again a bunch of lefts. Neely gets enough and scores a takedown. D.Brashear with CLEAR win.
Dominating victory for Brashear. Neely bit off more than he could chew with Brashear, but at least he dropped the gloves with a fighter instead of the usual non-fighters that Neely instigates with.
brashear pummeled and bloodies cam neely
As we all know Neely re-defined the Power Forward Position. There was not even a position called that before Neely! He score a Hat Trick, and then kick the crap out of the other teams best Enforcer! That type of Talent & toughness has never existed with ANY NHL Player since Neely!
rabbit punches to the back of the head dont win you any fights. Not a mark on Neely's face yet donnieboy had a nice welt under his right eye. Neely with the unquestionable win.
Really unfortunate Neely couldn't really do much of anything here, the knees were basically shot at this point. Brash knew this and goes looking for him, and shows his true colors. If it happened before the knee injuries, Neely would have fared much better.
unfortunately a win 4 big brash.... a 5....this was @ the end of cams ride & the beginning of brash's....please post some of cams real fights....BTW nice sweep of the frogs....GO Bs................
Neely looked like a punching bag
