Neil being a ****** as usual. I did gain respect for Grabovski though, props for standing up for the kid.

Yeah and we lose the player who's been our best forward the past while and they lose a scrub.

I'm clapping at what an idiot he is.

It's funny looking at the Sens board and talking about Neil destroying Grabovski (which he didn't) like it would have been some sort of accomplishment.

Haven't seen the fight, but I doubt Neil is going full on against Grabo.

Not sure if op is a leaf fan, or not, but they should get off their high horse as Leaf fighters go after non fighters, too...

No one does it as often as Neil. That's his game. Don't tell me it isn't I've been watching this goof since early 2000.

Gil Gunderson 03-17-2012 07:57 PM

He's a pest and he took off one of the Leafs' best players for the rest of the game. He's doing his job.

Exactly and he was talking with Phaneuf for a while and didn't drop the gloves against him. He's lucky he got tossed, he would have had a huge target on his back if he didn't.

There's a difference between going after a star player who has actually fought before and one who hasn't. Even pests chose the former, he chose the latter, which explains why he's a joke.

What did Ashton do to earn Neil's wrath?

I don't get this "going after rookies" makes you a coward. His job is to give the team a momentum shift.

Neil has also gone after players much tougher, he's a coward though.

He was talking to Phaneuf after the Leafs scored and did nothing, instead he chose a weaker and vulnerable target then fought a complete non-fighter. That's not attempting to give your team a momentum shift, that's being a gutless coward.

Neil's also fought much tougher guys than Phaneuf.

Chris Neil's opponents over past three seasons (2009-2012):

L. Schenn x 2
Walker x 2
Jackman
Boulton x 2
S. Thornton x 2
Chara x 2
Begin
Konopka
Staubitz
Grabovski
Downie x 2
Goddard
Rupp
Rypien x 3
Mayers
Exelby
Tarnarsky
Brown
Engelland x 2
Seidenberg
Westgarth
Orr
Shelley
Rome
B. Holmstrom

What, maybe two of those aren't fighters (Grabo and Seidenberg)?

Give me a break. I was impressed to see Grabovski come to the defense of his teammate, but he engaged that one himself. He hung in there pretty nicely as well. You people are being ridiculous.

Regardless, I don't see how you can justify going after a rookie and then fighting Grabo when he skated away from Phaneuf....

Neil isn't afraid of anyone on the Leafs so he'll do whatever he wants out there. If he wants to go after a rookie, he'll go after a rookie.

But yeah, I'm sure Chris Neil is scared of big bad Dion Phaneuf. :sarcasm:

Phaneuf is the biggest spot picker in the league.

If the Leafs had someone truly intimidating then maybe Neil doesn't go after Ashton. Chris Neil does whatever he wants out there. That's why I love him. He doesn't care who you are, he'll hit you as hard as he can and he'll you no matter who you are (and doesn't shy away from tough players either).
