Colton can hit hard AND take a punch. He's a great role player. One of the best. Have to love his hard work on the skating, defensive skills. He's been perhaps Rennys most successful "projects"
agree. he actually has really impressed me this year, with his skating and hockey sense. he definately deserves all the icetime he gets. He really must have busted his butt this offseason and it shows.
yea, but it also hurts the guy that is doing the punching. Gotta hurt their hands, I wish players that would fight would take their hemlets off before they would go at it
A lot of guys won't take off their helmets against certain fighters for fear of permanent injury. I remember reading about a fight between Kocur and Brashear, where Kocur hit Brashear so hard he broke his helmet. Brashear said he couldn't eat solid food for two days, just imagine what the damage might have been. Of course Kocur is said to have been the hardest puncher of his time if not of anytime.
Fantastic bout and everyone know something like that was coming. We needed a spark against a team with as much quality as the Rangers, and he gave it to us. He punched that stunned Orr was surely the end of it (I thought), but I was wrong as it kept going.
That really was an awesome fight. Boulton landed 2 bombs towards the end there that my mouth is stil sore from. Just from watching it! I like that Orr uses both hands but when he switches he makes himself vulnerable to those shots.
How awesome would that have been if he scored on that breakaway?
