Watch out Bradley Carcillos behind you !!hahahahahahahaha..............

Posted by blazers76 on October 21, 2011 at 08:33 AM

Not a great scrap, Gaustad has to be the biggest dude in the league who refuses to shake the visor while fighting, would like to see pull that with a legit heavy. Credit to Bradley for scrapping after getting his face ripped open by the post.

You'd think with all those uppercuts, the fight wouldn't of lasted that long . . .yet through all that Brads was unphased. . .eh whatever. . . As most know Brads will bleed from standing to close to an air conditioner, so in his case its not always a case for victory. . .

what a coward he never takes his helmet off. props to bradley for staying in there

Gustad.... Big Goof w/ big Visor.....take it off .....cudos to Bradley for going after the GOOFSTAD....Brad is the tougher of the two...even though he lost.

Posted by mudman55 on October 21, 2011 at 08:05 AM

Goose with the W cuz of those uppercuts....

Posted by Thibodeau on October 22, 2011 at 04:09 PM

Wow it looks like Gaustad finally grew some balls this year. Granted he does it wearing his visor. Who knows maybe rather than chopping at Chara's legs or giving Chara a faces wash then run to the refs he might actually drop the mits. Ah, what the hell am I saying its Gaustad and he has proven for the past two years if your his size or bigger he won't drop em because he is just one big waste of space.

Posted by Behn Wilson on October 21, 2011 at 07:56 PM

Gaustad, and his visor... ''BW'' (StaceyB reference) their way to a slight victory. I'd still put my money on Bradley in a ''helmetless'' rematch.

Posted by DARCY T on October 22, 2011 at 05:32 AM

i dont see when bradley got cut so badly.gausted didnt seem to land much.edge gausted and gave it 5

Posted by filthynumber1 on October 21, 2011 at 01:39 AM

that is a very sexy visor Gaustad has on! pfft... props to bradley tho. he stood in there

Posted by mbassy on October 24, 2011 at 02:33 AM

love it when people whine about the visor when the other guy starts the fight.

Posted by von_swine on October 21, 2011 at 03:32 AM

no Sabre hatred here as gaustad gets the W, but holmes has to LOSE that visor. people hated Rich Pilon for a reason,... Bradley is a salty kid and prolly should've gave him a rabbit punch or headbutt for not taken the lid off,...as long as the check clears, right?

Posted by The Odd Tussle on October 22, 2011 at 01:15 AM

Goose. But what I want to know is why does Sabrehatred hate the Sabres that much. What happened to him in his childhood to warrant these feelings? Did 5'6'' Timo Jutila beat him up in a bar? Does he actually like a team or is he just a fan of the act of hatred. From now on let's all call him Sabrelove because it will piss him off. Don't let him get to you because he thrives on that. Either ignore him or just say, Thank you for your warm comments, Sabrelove. What do you have to say about this Sabrelove?

Posted by hal29 on October 23, 2011 at 06:31 PM

I mean really what is up Gaustad's ass. Win Gaustad but I mean really? Paul come on you average like 3 fights a season but now that you have a visor on your balls grew. If you got hurt and are wearing don't fight. If you want to fight take it off. Man up! I'm with you Behn Bradley all day long if no visors involved. Gaustad is not a great fighter. notice how is victories over Gleason and Bradley have been with the visor. If he takes it off we will see how fast his balls shrink again.

Posted by bruins rule on October 22, 2011 at 12:15 AM

gaustad gets the win in this fight.

Posted by homeland on October 21, 2011 at 10:15 AM

nice gash opened up on Bradley. Gaustad with the win.

Posted by AusTex on October 21, 2011 at 11:46 PM

Sure he won but Gaustad had a visor. A visor is an advantage for anyone but Jay Beagle.

Posted by jnk07899 on October 21, 2011 at 09:07 AM

Gaustad wearing the visor this year, yet getting into 2 fights already, which is a much higher pace than last year. Regardless, big GOOSE fan! Total domination. W Gaustad.

Posted by tsbjr33 on October 21, 2011 at 10:49 AM

Bradley should have told him to lose the bucket, instead he goes right in and starts throwin. I dont blame the Goose for not takin it off, Bradley would have taken the opportunity to land a cheap one! Goose with the win, for tenderizing Bradleys face with his fist!!!!!!

Posted by glovedropper08 on October 23, 2011 at 12:53 AM

Gaustad hands down. Goose can throw em' this year. I don't think he had time to lose the lid in either of his fights this year...

Posted by staceyb on October 21, 2011 at 05:58 AM

Goose has been watching those Behn Wilson fight tapes on YouTube. Nice uppercuts he fed Brad.

Posted by jtl6713 on October 21, 2011 at 08:36 AM

Yes, the visor should be removed for all fights. Makes no sense. Either way tip it to Gausted

Posted by GreatMurray on October 21, 2011 at 07:20 PM

Bradley never got going. Gaustad him him hard at least twice. ALmost a TKO

Posted by nogoal99 on October 21, 2011 at 08:54 AM

Right off the faceoff MB was ready to go. Both guys kept their balance and traded shots. Gaustad landed a few to the side of Bradley's head, they either cut him directly or it was caused by Bradley's helmet. Edge to Gaustad. Don't like visor fighters but: This is Gaustad's FIRST year wearing a visor in the NHL. He had some close eye shots in the World Championships this summer and wanted to see how a season went with it. Also seeing Malholtra's injury made him want to give it a try.

Posted by GET SOME on October 21, 2011 at 10:35 PM

Good fight. Bradley's face was not cut by Gaustad's visor as some have said. Gaustad with the clear win. BTW, SABREHATRED is a jack@$$. All of the HAHAHA....;what a mo. I'm guessing he's bitter about Buffalo because of the experience he had while at Attica. When you take it in the @$$ as many times as he did, you become bitter.

Posted by skrshawk on October 21, 2011 at 09:45 AM

Sabres fan, but Goose has got to lose the lid or the visor if he's going to keep fighting, and most of his opponents will agree to drop theirs out of respect (although it's possible he offered to). Either way, blood or not, a clear win and one of the better scraps so far this year.

Posted by Bostonslugfest on October 21, 2011 at 11:53 AM

not to shabby i must say... if that fight lasted another 15 seconds we would have seen some Crimson Mask action.. Gaustad with the win through pure power. oh one more thing.. Sabrehated... do you hate the sabres or are you a fan? your name is a bit confusing. and HAHAHAHA you HAHAHAH are obviously AHAHHHHHAAHAHAAAHAAHHHHAAAAHHAAAHAHAA 12..

Posted by Blake_C on October 21, 2011 at 11:43 AM

Gaustad landed more punches and caught Bradley off balance a few times. The cut was likely from his own helmet more so than one of Gaustad's punches. A decent bout with Gausad picking up the win, however, the fact that he's wearing a visor definitely discredits the win

Posted by FightsOfHockey on October 21, 2011 at 08:19 AM

gaustad wins on blood

Posted by DEREK SWISLOSKY on October 21, 2011 at 03:38 PM


Posted by andallya1 on October 21, 2011 at 09:43 AM

Two things from other people's reviews here: 1. I have no idea when Gaustad would have taken his visor off. Bradley went right for him when the puck was dropped. I don't buy that he can only have staged fights where he has the chance to take his visor off because he values his eyesight. After what happened to Manny Malhotra last year and Bryan Berard in 2000, I'm amazed that there are still so many players without visors. 2. Weaver ran into the post and was cut. Bradley entered this fight with nothing wrong with his face, he was just opened up by his fight with Gaustad. As for the fight itself, that's twice now that Gaustad has looked VERY strong. He just over powered Gleason and Bradley and basically pounded away freely.

Posted by Double Nickels on November 06, 2011 at 06:52 AM

Gaustad looks like a different player this year. I like it.

Posted by hockeyherman on October 21, 2011 at 09:28 PM

Gaustad has to be the biggest, toughest guy in the league with a visor! What a wimp!

Posted by chad420 on October 21, 2011 at 01:17 PM

win goosestep

Posted by thebigbea55 on October 21, 2011 at 05:01 PM

take off ur visor gaustad.. that's why he's winning his fights.. cause the other guys don't want to cut themselves hitting the visor..

Posted by kkdowning on October 21, 2011 at 11:15 PM

Pretty close -- Bradley is a bleeder, so don;t too much into that. Brads bleed in just about every fight in Washington

Posted by vichammer on November 12, 2011 at 05:03 PM

Close fight with Gaustad landing the better shots.

Posted by kasheyev on October 21, 2011 at 12:51 AM

Bradley was cut before the fight after going headfirst into the post. Gaustad opened him right back up.

Posted by legend22 on October 21, 2011 at 09:07 AM

Goose should startb taking off the faceshield if he wants to fight. Still a win to the P**sy

Posted by mike hartman on October 21, 2011 at 09:43 AM

kasheyev and blazers76, that wasn't bradley that went into the post earlier in the game, it was a defenseman. You think he would be backchecking anyway? He wasn't cut by gooses small visor either, it was the series of rights landed by gaustad. Bradley did land a couple of nice shots, but the goose landed more for the victory. I'm not a fan of the visor either, but It does serve a purpose if you like your vision. Sabrehater your act is getting a little old, and is losing it's originality. you seem like a real f'n loser. but a persistent loser.

Posted by Mighty Atom on October 21, 2011 at 10:20 AM

Matt ''Busted wide open'' Bradley does it again !
