I'd call that a TKO...Reaves IS the next Probert-
good tight bout
Reaves is a tough dude!
McQuaid who is tough got his ass handed to him by the tougher Reaves good fight though McQuaid didn’t start to lose until the end
Reaves is clearly the toughest cat in the league. Mcquaid got owned. He actually got f’nowned.
Close fight up until the end when Reaves get in a couple good shots. McQuaid loses a rare one.
Reeves worked McQuaid here in this heavyweight tilt.
Im a bruins fan and a mcquaid fan but reeves won
Can't believe these guys have never met before, McQuaid is as tough as they come but decided win for Reaves
just pummeled McQuaid....don't think I ever seen McQuaid get whooped liked that
Typical Ryan Reaves beat down. Miss not having him in Pittsburgh. Would've been nice to see If the Philthadelphia Flyers would've been so dirty February 23. Doubt it.
Good fight for Reaves. Hate him, but he clearly won
This was not close. Adam McQuaid really needs to stop trying to fight. Especially guys like Reaves.
Great fight from 2 of the better fighters
TKO by Reaves. Not sure if a lot of those posting here stopped watching before McQuaid got dropped by right after getting dominated throughout the fight. Sounding like typical Bruins fans seeing much differently than it actually played out....
Probably the two toughest guys going in the league right here. Reaves took it but if they fight again it could just as easy go Mcquaids way. Good fight overall.
Two tough SOB's, would love to see a round two where McQuaid didn't have his elbow pad stuck. Not using that as an excuse, gave it to Reaves at an 8. Nice combo of a bomb that had McQuaid leaning then a shot or two, one to the side, few more to the dome and McQuaid was done. Fight of the year
Reaves is a beast
Good punch-up. Reaves is an important part of this team. Rarely lost a fight in a decade, plays the body like a champ too
Well first off, it makes me seriously depressed see mcquiad in a rangers uniform. (GO B’s) Damn!! Talk about a super fight! Reaves is so dominate most his fight. Mcquiad is tough mf’er. I like to them go again in future.
Reaves with the win
No doubt who wins this one. McQuaid somewhat lands a punch early although it was mostly blocked by Reaves' shoulder then Reaves unloads on him. One good shot knocks McQuaid to his knees.
Reaves is just flat out scary. That pre fight stance, the look, the force of those blows, especially the body blow near the end.....oof. McQuaid is a tough cookie, he tried hanging in there but just couldnt keep up with Reaves
McQuaid is lucky that he had the half visor on to take the first few punches. Otherwise, he would have gotten really smoked. If you’re a fighter you should either have the new Bauer clip in visor and unclip it if the other guy is visorless...or take your lid off to even it up. It’s like two boxers sparring. One with headgear and one without. One has face protection and the other doesn’t. Hats off to Reeves.
Even the Boston Homers can't save Quaider from this demolition. Quaiders punches didn't even make Reaves blink...pretty close to a knock out...TKO Reaves.
reaves definitely in control here was hoping for a better bout but Reaves was to strong
Ryan Reeves is a beast!
Nice tilt. Reeves got the upper hand and just kept chucking for the win.
Absolutely great tilt from both guys, definitely give the edge here to healthy scratch Ryan Reaves.
McQuaid got in better punches. Reaves kept swinging to the back of Adams head because he knew he couldn’t stand toe to toe after quaider started smashing his face
10 years ago this fight would be voted around a 4-5 but things have changed as we know and it gets a high vote rate. The matchup alone gives this fight a few extra points on the rating. I think everyone knew it would end this way. Mcquaid is a great fighter but Reaves is a mismatch for him. Not too many mismatches for a guy like mcquaid but Reaves may be top dog in the league these days. Glad they both agreed to drop em'. I give it a 6 and unanimous decision Reaves.
Oldredcanoe you've lost your mind!!! Reaves with another W!!! McQuaid is garbage!!!
Nobody today is going to beat Reaves. Nobody.
Decent tilt with two heavys.
McQuaid has not played a lot this year, so he might be rusty. Reaves is the last of a dying bred in the NHL....the heavyweight fighter. Ten years ago, there were several guys that could go with Reaves. Not the case any more as the NHL has eliminated the heavyweights.
I give this a draw, but clearly Mcquaid early then he couldn't free his arm as clearly seen. How could anybody but homeys give this to Reaves.
Reeves stated on podcast he thought Adam was toughest guy in league , the toughest guy in league ... would say that ! If you don’t get hurt it’s a win ...
so McQuaid is finishing a shift, and Reaves jumps on the ice to fight him? not a very decisive win for having that much edge. Reaves wins but this is a case of "any given sunday" if that arm pad comes off Quaid would have got the jackhammer going.
lone wolf almost made extinct
The fight I've been waiting for! Two of the best today. Healthy scratch Reaves vs Infirmary Mcquaid. Gave it to Mcquaid cause I'm a homer. Sue me
Reaves holds the belt officially. Great fight. Fight could have gone either way though. Still think an Angry Chara who wants to fight handles anyone easily.
Reaver with the win, good fight, Reaves is a beast
Reaves is a big man, good on McQuaid for answering the bell
So Reaves left the bench to fight. I expect a suspension for this. Win Reaves
I don't recall another McQuaid loss, most underrated fighter in the league. Reeves got him though.
Reaves does his normal of make it look like he’s productive throwing wild early shots. McQuiad connects more meaningful early shots. Reaves comes on late. Still doesn’t change the fact that Reaves is a vile individual needing his bell rung.
McQueer standing up early cause he has the shield protecting him. Once Reaves got pissed off fight was over.
Quaid bails as soon as his sheild is popped off his face. Should have been a better fight.
Reaves all the way...vote any other way and you don’t like Reaves or are a Rangers fan...good bout though..
This was a real fight, back to the good 'ol days, Adam was holding his own but Ryan got him at the end. Visions of Probert, Grimson, Brown dancing in my head.... Alas, look at the next 2,3 or 100 fights on here,.............
Dominating TKO win by Reaves - once he got his right going McQuaid was over-matched. I counted four decent connections before that final last flush to the jaw put McQuaid down. If it weren't for the pussy visor McQuaid wears, this would likely have been over sooner.
Reaves is a tough SOB, but I wonder how he would have done 10-20 years ago. In a couple of years, he'll be too old to defend himself against any new blood and the NHL will probably have eliminated fighting anyhow. Also, I still love the comments by those who have never punched a helmet or visor or who have never been punched or have been in a fight! FYI ... watching hockey fights does not make you a tough guy.
Good to see a fight where Reaves has to work for the win. He's the toughest hombre in the NHL, so seeing something a bit more challenging for is refreshing. Good fight and really good job from both the guys.
Two of the best in today’s game have a go at it. Reaves dominates and solidifies his position at the top.
I wanted this fight to happen, I called for it to happen, I lost my mind when it happened. McQuaid is one of the few guys left who could possibly beat Reaves more than 1 time out of 10 on any given night. I was slightly nervous for Reaves early on, then he chopped McQuaid down like a tree. Both guys fresh, squared up, center ice, what more do you want from a fight? Would love see Gudbranson, Johnston, or Harpur vs Reaves. He already tuned Wilson up but would love to see it again. For now I'd say that fight cements Reaves as the heavyweight champ in the NHL.
Holy man what a scrap from Reaves, McQuaid was getting pummeled with fists of fury. Good job Reaves, hell yeah.
reaves is a beast
Rangeley, you got to be kidding! McQuaid was not even tired at end of shift. Reeves was just plain too tough for him. Oldredcanoe and tacomania, what fight were you guys watching? Reeves clearly dominated a big bully.
Mcquaid had some good ones in there so it’s an arguable draw
Just one of those Reaves hammers would send me into oblivion.
Great Fight, Two Warriors Saying Lets See What You Got.
What a great fight!!! This is exactly what we the fans are waiting for, but unfortunately it happens too rare these days.
Never been a big fan of McQuaid but I must say, he didn't shy away. Good for him for going toe to toe with Reaves.
Great matchup with two of the leagues best. Very even through most of the fight then Reaves landed a few big ones. Win Reaves and an 8.
Reaves gets the win but I feel like the fight is a bit overrated just because of the names of the players involved.
Ryan Reaves once again proves that he's one of the toughest fighters in the league.
McQuaid looked like a puppet
Do not mess with Reaves........
Don't get many heavyweight bouts like this anymore. Reaves got the best of McQuaid this one. Would never turn down watching these two go at it.
Most enjoyable video of McQuaid I've seen since he got cross checked in the throat a few years ago.
Two of the top 5 fighters in the NHL do not disappoint.
Nice fight boys, W to Reaves
This was a closer fight than most people are voting. AM landed 2 nice shots early and RR got in the later shots. Best scrap I've seen in a while. Draw, 8.
I've watched this fight quite a few times. Both throwing bombs. Love watching Reaves scrap.
Reavo fucked him up.
