Andrew Peters narrow win Fun

I'm going to give a narrow victory to Peters in this one, but I may re-view to try and figure out what the intentions of the linesmen actually were when they broke this one up. It sort of appears that when Peters got turned away from McGrattan that they were protecting him after McGrattan landed one off the side of his head - but I can't change the fight into McGrattan's favor based on that suspicion.

Peters and McGrattan square off (another one of the drop the gloves and come out from your corner square off's - cool stuff) and Peters gets the early advantage, a series of rights that clearly buckles McGrattan but he manages to stay on his feet. After that they are landing pretty evenly, with a slight edge to McGrattan but when judging the number and quality of punches landed after the linesmen separated them I think Peters gets a slight edge. But, the last punch landed was by McGrattan and he did connect on Peters when he was turned away from him. However, it's not enough to necessarily believe that Peters was being saved (unlike say, Probert vs. Coxe II where it was pretty obvious at the end why the linesmen stepped in). Good fight, makes me look forward to seeing the next three rounds between these guys.

They drop the gloves and square off out towards the end boards.

They both come in missing a right. They then have an exchange of haymakers three from McGrattan, two from Peters with none landing. Again they throw some punches with all them missing three from McGrattan, one from Peters. Peters then comes around with a piston like right hand dropping McGrattan to a knee where Peters hit him once again. McGrattan got up who was obviously surprised by that right and Peters landed another one. They then fired off some more haymakers. McGrattan with the only connecting punch. Peters then threw a big right that missed and allowed McGrattan to land two short rights. They then had another good exchange with McGrattan getting the better of it by getting Peters ducked down and off balance. McGrattan's lid came off as Peters pulled out and got straightened back up. Peters ripped off his own lid to even things up and took a right to the back of the head. Peters came back missing one as the linesmen came in.

Draw as Peters landed one bomb that dropped McGrattan but McGrattan got up and was in full control for the rest of the fight. Probably one of the better fights between these two and this was McGrattan's first career NHL fight.

Andrew Peters vs. Brian McGrattan (Rd ll) / Oct 8, 2005

McGrattan and Peters drop the gloves off the centre ice face off and square off. Peters beat up on McGrattan during a preseason game a couple of seasons before the lockout and McGrattan looked to settle his ego after making it fully into the NHL. McGrattan fittingly was first to grab on and both guys threw straight rights at each other with neither men connecting.

McGrattan tried to use his left off the jersey before clipping Peters' lid with a right, Peters came back with a short right and McGrattan threw one back as both guys tried trade blows with neither man really being able to connect until McGrattan caught Peters on the back of the head as he ducked down. Peters then caught McGrattan with a good left but failed to land as he tried to follow up with a cross.

McGrattan threw a cross back at Peters throwing himself slightly off balance and leaving himself open enough for Peters to land a bomb on McGrattan that buckled the Ottawa man and nearly sent him to the ice. McGrattan managed to hold himself up and Peters got in another right as he got up, McGrattan then took a few seconds to steady himself before landing a straight right on Peters.

Both guys then threw two rights each with neither man connecting and McGrattan landed a short left before simultaneously throwing with Peters in which McGrattan just looked to get ahead of Peters. Both guys then looked to catch each other with rights but Peters landed a second while McGrattan missed, McGrattan then missed with another right before pulling Peters off balance.

McGrattan collided with Peters losing his helmet and Peters chucked his off after McGrattan threw a jab, McGrattan then fell short with a right as the officials began to come in and McGrattan just managed to get another one in before the officials got between them. Peters then threw an extra punch and McGrattan was pushed aside, both exchanged words before skating away.

Good fight here, McGrattan looked to land a couple early before being caught and nearly dropped by a Peters right. McGrattan then seemed to get the better of things after that as well so I'm not going to call a winner here, entertaining bout though and no question we'll see more between these two.

Draw.

First regular season fight for Brian McGrattan and his first of four battles on the season against fellow enforcer, Andrew Peters. They drop the gloves after a faceoff coming after a Wade Redden goal. They square off and grab on with the left. Once they do, both miss a right at the same time. Then McGrattan misses a right with Peters missing a right back and again McGrattan misses a right and Peters counters a missing right. McGrattan misses two more rights and then misses another right while taking a jersey jab from Peters. Peters misses a right and McGrattan comes back with a missing right. Then Peters lands a big right that buckles McGrattan. Peters connects with two rights as McGrattan struggles to stay on his skates but does so. McGrattan then lands a right and Peters shoots back with a right that misses. McGrattan then misses a right and Peters misses a right. McGrattan misses a right again and then misses a jersey jab. Then they miss a right at the same time and McGrattan lands a right following. Peters connects with a right though McGrattan lands a right back. Peters lands a right again and McGrattan lands another right too. Peters then lands a good right which jars McGrattan but McGrattan lands a right as Peters ducks. McGrattan's helmet falls off and then Peters shows some class and takes off his own helmet as McGrattan misses a jersey jab. McGrattan then misses a right and another jersey jab before Peters misses a right. The linesmen then get in between the two and break it up. Good scrap. I give the slight edge to Peters for landing better but it wasn't one-sided or anything. It was a pretty close fight with McGrattan holding his own and getting in some punches but Peters was just a little bit better here.

Square off, and plenty of hard shots are being fired, but none are connecting. Peters lands the punch of the fight, a nasty right that snaps McGrattan's head back and buckles his knees. He does an amazing job of staying upright. It's then more of the same, vicious punches that aren't landing. McGrattan makes a slight comeback, but doesn't do quite enough to overcome that big right.

This was a good scrap. Peters missed four right hands. McGrattan missed a few punches and landed an average blow. He missed a shot and landed an average right. Andrew landed a good shot and a pretty good right. He shook Brian for a second and made him stumble. He landed an average shot. McGrattan missed a couple of blows.

Peters missed a punch and landed a partial connect. Brian landed an average blow and missed a shot. He landed an average connect and missed a punch. He missed a blow and landed two average shots. He missed a punch and landed a solid blow. Andrew landed a couple of average punches and missed a shot. McGrattan landed a partial connect and missed a shot. The refs stopped the fight.

I rate this as a narrow win for Peters. Both men landed several effective shots. I thought Andrew's two powerful shots towards the beginning of the fight were the most telling blows. I think it gave him a slight edge, although McGrattan came on strong and a case can be made for a draw.

They stand at arm's length and exchange heavy rights, with a good job done by both to avoid them. Peters landed a shot that buckles McGrattan and puts him on his knees, but he gets back up and keeps battling. Great fight, edge to Peters for the big punch.

Really impressed by Peters taking off his helmet after Gratts came off. But I think maybe if anything Gratts got a headache and Peters gots some bruised knuckes if not broken. He threw some major bombs but most landed to the back of Gratts helmet. Call it a draw maybe edge to Peters. Dont see any argument on this fight.

Peters landed that one massive right hand that buckled McGratts and almost ended the fight early. Great heart by Brian to stay up though and keep fighting, and return some great shots. Edge Peters in a great fight.

One of the best rivalry of the mid 2000. McGrattan and Peters fought a lot. In this fight it was one punch to one punch, one after the other. McGrattan seemed rocked a bit in the early part of the fight but he came back very quickly to end the fight with a draw.

Very good fight with both guys going back and forth trading heavy blows, Peters held an early lead but McGrattan came on late, both land equally but I thought Peters landed just a bit better rocking McGrattan a time or two so he earns the hard fought win.

All of the calls I've seen of this fight have either been edge Peters or draw; this is the only edge for McGrattan I've seen. I won't argue with a draw, but I don't see how McGrattan won. It's like saying Adam Mair won his fight with Craig Adams in 2003-04 because he threw and landed more punches despite getting dropped a couple of times...Reply

"especially towards the end which counts most."

Not quite sure I get the logic behind that... Again, this is the only call for McGrattan I've seen, draw or edge Peters is pretty much unanimous everywhere you ask, I'm a bit suspicious of this one.

what are you "suspicious" about? because I have a slightly different opinion than most? What is the point of having this forum if everyone follows one anothers opinions. Is that role your here to question who posts what? as I see you question another who didn't think Peters won the fight because of the one punch he landed....lol.

I basically call it a draw, whith possibly the slightest of edge to McGrattan if you read my post.

"especially towards the end which counts most." what is the logic?

IMO, what is happening at the end of the fight is a good way to judge an outcome. In this fight, I thought McGrattan was slightly more effective than Peters and landed a few more ,especially a good right near the end.
To make a point of why I think the end of the fight is important, while certainly to a much more decisive ending(s), take the Flinn/Vandermeer and Boulerice/McGrattan fights. Flinn and McGrattan were winning easily up to the end( again not the greatest of analogies as those bouts ended with a KD, but an analogy nevertheless).

Btw... I think your post is really the SUSPICIOUS one when you state"Peters landed a shot that buckles McGrattan and puts him on his knees". You are the ONLY guy to say McGrattan was put on his knees. I don't see McGrattan's knees hitting the ice at all and don't see anyone else saying that either.

You'll also note that most of the other reviews barely describe the fight, if at all, with several complete blanks and generic comments like "good fight" or "both landed hard shots." CrazyPsycho also mentioned the hard shot by Peters, and if you watch the fight, it's clear as day that McGrattan almost gets put down by the punch. He struggled to stay up, and his left knee briefly touched the ice. By far the best punch that landed, and that's why I gave the nod to Peters in a close fight. I also reviewed the fight from memory right after I saw it, and thus I didn't have the video to be all anal about whether his knees really did touch the ice or not (if they didn't, they came VERY close). He got back to his skates either way, and I mentioned that, didn't I?

Go ahead and grasp at straws to accuse me of being a homer, I review mostly Sabres fights because that's who I see the most and I have tons of Sabres footage, but I'll admit a Sabres loss and my record clearly shows that. Peters did not lose this fight.

Never did call you a "homer". All I'm saying is you referenced my post as "suspicious", as if I'm a "homer" or because my view of the fight is different than yours and the other 15 guys who posted. My response to that is that I don't live anywhere near Ottawa and I gave a description of how I viewed the fight. I basically posted it was an even fight, no problem being a draw, but I thought McGrattan had a better second half after receiving the one shot by Peters.

Lets be serious here, were talking outcomes of Hockey fights and if you think Peters had a slight edge and I think McGrattan had a slight edge, that pretty much says it was a close fight. The consensus is a draw anyway.

If you want , ask the mods to change my review to a draw...sorry if I came across as accusing you of anything....no harm/no foul.

Don't worry about it (you can edit your own calls if you wish, but hey, stick to your guns), it's just that it's the only time I've ever really seen anyone go for McGrattan on multiple sites, and I think the fact that you said it should be a draw and then gave it to McGrattan anyways seemed a little weird to me. I don't agree with the end of the fight thing either, but that's the way you see it. We've had a lot of homer calls and weirdness around here lately, including stuff related to McGrattan, I apologize for jumping the gun like that.Reply
