Anybody else dig..?

Anybody else dig Andrew Peter's stance before a fight? I love the way he stands and gets his fists up.. like a true boxer.. I guess those boxing lessons paid off

I really like Peters and the fact that he goes with any tough guy.. win or lose..

Just giving him some props

Oh and I want him to have more ice-time.. he needs to kick more ass

I think next offseason he needs to take fighting lessons from Tiger Williams, Tony Twist, or even Rob Ray as boxing and hockey fighting are completely different when it comes to balance. And that has been Peters' #1 problem so far this year.

Maybe so.. but I love the pose regardless..

I didn't really think about the balance issue.. he's got power though

The Brennan fight was great.

Unlike his demolition at the hands of Nathan Perrott... a guy I've never seen win a fight as a pro before. I like that Peters is game, that he's big now, and that he has embraced his role. Now he needs to learn how to successfully do what he needs to do to be effective, as all NHL enforcers do when they first break into the league.

Peters has problems with lefties. Perrott was a lefty, and so was Laraque (other problems there).

Boxing can teach you hand speed, but a lot of boxing is footwork, and that is tough to replicate on the ice.

You can't teach size, and Peters has that. You can't teach power, and I'm not sure Peters has that. His willingness to throw is very impressive though.

It looks cool, but he's got to realize that not all his opponents are going to wait for him to go through the poses. Perrott got 10-15 shots in before Peters even got his gloves off. He's got to get the gloves off and be ready to go quicker or one of these days he's going to get KO'd before he knows what hit him. Andrew should drop the boxing pose from his routine and attack like a rabid dog.

He certainly was surprised when Perrott started to throw. He's bulked up and been willing... maybe now he should read up a little on who he might be jousting with. I remember May talking about making sure he knew which side a potential opponent would throw from before the start of a game, that that was important to his fisticuff success. That and that killer first punch....

Peters did beat Perrott in their 2nd preseason fight. He staggered him twice. The difference in that fight and the 2 he lost to Perrott was that Peters was allowed to take his time and get set up in his boxing routine. I'm sure the word is out by now, that the way to beat Peters is to get on him right away. Against the big lefties he might be better off doing the Brashear bear-hug until he knows what he's doing.

Don't you mean the McMorrow bearhug?
