now for Rypien to take on McGratton because clearly Hordichuk will not anymore. Prust would have no problem obliging Hordichuk.

McGratton is out of Rypien's league, I think it's unfair to expect him to now fight guys like McGratton, Boogard, etc. As for Hordichuk not taking him on I couldn't tell who was attempting to fight who, and who was declining the invitation - Hordichuk went over to groups of Flames players several times and both him and McGratton jawed but nothing came of it.

It is interesting how Prust and Stortini have adapted to fighting Rypien, good for them for learning from their earlier defeats, hopefully Rypien switches up his technique in order to demote them to their former punching bag status.

Hmm:

McGrattan - 6'4", 235
Hordichuk - 6'1", 206
Prust - 5'11", 195
Rypien - 5'11" 170

Please tell me you don't think the 2 inch, 10 lb difference between Hordichuk and Prust is the same as the 5 inch, 65 lb difference between Rypien and McGrattan.

Well, come on now. Rypien fought Valabik who is 6'7 245, why cant he fight McGrattan who is only 6'4 235?

Prust should go with Hordichuk next matchup, just to put a little pressure on Rypien to have to step up to McGrattan. Even if it's just a mind game - why not?

Both were great fights. Kudos to both fighters. Prust won round 1, Rypien won round 2. I'd expect these two will fight again the next time these teams meet.


I was lookin' forward to a McGrattan-Hordichuk tilt, but oh well.

I'd be interested to see how Rypien would handle himself against a legitimate heavyweight. Not saying he'd win, just that I'd be interested to see how he does.

Hordichuk and Prust have gone, if memory serves. I think Prust had his way with him...not saying much as I don't think Hordi is that good of a scrapper.

McGrattan is even a step up from Hordichuks class. Besides, Prust already did fight Hordichuk and did a lot better than his first two fights with Rypien.

I remember the top 5 fighters on your team thread where Flames fans were ripping Prust

Prust fought Steve MacIntrye so I don't understand why Rypien can't fight some of the bigger heavyweights in the league. He beat up Janssen and Janssen fought Shelley.
