You win some, and you lose some.

Orr lost this one - Even he knows it!
non homer fans thinks its a ****** fight and pathetic ottawa has to brag about it like it was actually impressive or discussion worthy.

It wasn't a terrible fight, nor was it great. It was a pretty average hockey fight. You just think it was terrible because Orr lost. Everyone knows this.

I honestly don't think any Ottawa fan is bragging about the fight. I think we're pleasantly surprised Neil won a fight against Orr based on their stature in the goon category.

What I think most Ottawa fans are having a good laugh about is how much some people are unwilling to accept that Neil clearly won the fight. He threw and landed more punches - Orr was not active at all. Just because he held Orr close doesn't mean he held on for dear life, it's a different fighting tactic that many fighters use when their opponent has a longer reach and more power.

Obviously not fight of the year, but for Neil to beat Orr it's a pretty big feat.

Toronto fans are funny. Even Hockeyfights has Neil as a clear winner here.

This more of waltz than a fight, both were hugging pretty tightly.

Not much of a fight but Neil gets it for most punches.

You have to hand it to Neil - although Orr isn't the biggest of the heavyweights - he will brake your face if you're not careful. Neil is 10x the player Orr is so getting a win against him in any fashion is commendable.

I always liked Neil. Good player, always willing to fight up a weight class. I remember when he got stuck fighting Shelley and got hammered but he hung in there.

Some here will hate this but I think Rinaldo is a younger, smaller version of Neil. If he can improve his backskating and defensive awareness a bit - he could have a long career - because that kid can really fight.
