Andre Deveaux win by TKO Fun 
7
Deveaux runs Begin into the right sideboards in the Leaf zone. Begin bounces off and is ready to rumble. He misses a big right and then a left as Deveaux rips Begin's lid off. Begin lands two lefts to the helmet and Deveaux tosses a decent right to Begin's hairless melon. Begin backpedals and lands another roundhouse left to the helmet. They swing simultaneously and each miss. Begin raises his head after ducking and gets caught by a big right to the mouth as he lands a weak left to Deveaux's shoulder. Another left misses and Begin leans forward again as Deveaux tosses two light overhand rights to the back. Deveaux goes under with an uppercut to the jaw area that rocks Begin to his knees. One of the officials quickly moves in as Begin gets up, grabbing Deveaux around the left knee. Deveaux tosses one more unnecessary punch that appears to miss before the other linesman intervenes. Begin skates off smiling (though it looks like an embarrassed smile). Teammate Matt Hunwick appears to ask him if he's OK and Begin says he's alright.

TKO win for Deveaux. Begin was game and connected with some lefts to the helmet and shoulder early. Deveaux was the better puncher as they went toe-to-toe. He appeared to stun Begin with his third punch. Begin went into a more defensive mode and Deveaux took advantage, switching to the uppercut and scoring the quick knockdown. Begin was dropped by the punch and though he got up from it, there was no further action on his part.

Andre Deveaux narrow win Fun 
5
Andre Deveaux finishes his check on Steve Begin after he takes a shot and they drop the gloves afterwards. They start trading right away, Begin with lefts and Deveaux with rights. Begin tosses six lefts and lands two as Deveaux chucks four and lands one. Begin then ducks his head and Deveaux throws three rights and lands one which knocks Begin down. Begin gets up and stays in tight as Deveaux misses one right and the linesmen come in. Short but spirited fight. They landed the same amount but Deveaux knocked Begin down even though Begin got back up against. Slight win for Deveaux.

Draw Fun 
5
They get up tight along the boards and Begin turns to Deveaux and the gloves fly off. They grab on quick and Begin opens up with 3 or 4 quick lefts with not much connecting, one here and there to Deveauxs bucket. Then they get in tight and Deveaux manages to get Begin ducked down a bit and tries for a combo of rights with a few uppercuts, not much landing though, Begin early, Deveaux late. Perhaps edge to Deveaux for an uppercut, but i'll see what others think.

Deveaux goes and challenges Begin after Begin hit him from behind the earlier shift, they have a short toe to toe exchange with Deveaux getting the better of the exchange, Begins head is bent over and Deveaux lands a big uppercut that knocks his helmet off and knocks him to his knees. Begin trys to pick Deveaux up and throw him down but no luck, Begin was laughing about it after the fight.

Andre Deveaux hits Steve Begin and challenges him to go. Begin accepts the offer as the mitts go down. Each of them misses once before Deveaux takes off Begin's helmet. Andre receives a couple of lefts and they start going toe-to-toe. Begin connects with a left to the ear while Deveaux answers with a right. Begin avoids next blow by ducking and misses badly. Andre's right hits the back as Begin lowers his head again. Deveaux lands another one to the body and fires the right uppercut, which hits the left side of the head and puts Begin to his knees. Deveaux throws two more uppercuts and the linesmen separate them.

Decent tilt between the guys from different weight classes. It was pretty even until the first Andre's uppercut. It clearly connected and dropped Begin, so this one is a TKO win for Deveaux.

I just find it funny that Deveaux is supposed to be a tough guy and he can't even beat Steve Begin in a fight! Not to mention he lost fights last year to Tim Jackman, Jassen Cullimore, and he earned only a draw against Jay Leach. Pathetic!

Deveaux has never been a heavyweight throughtout his whole career.

Even in Junior he did not fight legit heavies night in and night out, he would fight if he had to

I think the media attention from his call up last year created false impressions about his game as he has never been a legit heavy.

he is probably an average lightheavy but i think you need to be more informed about Deveaux before ripping him. If he was a legit heavy he would win fights against middle weights, it was just expected out of him last year so he tried to do the job that was expected but when he was called up last year he had more goals than fights so he is not or i think has he ever claimed to be a legit heavy

I wont deny that he is a spot picker but dont try to say he is a heavy, he is a lightheavy spot picker

Many players in the minors aren't heavyweights or even fighters to start out with. They adapt it in order to have a job. Deveaux has fought heavyweights in the AHL and is 6'3 220. He could fill the role but he won't. On top of that he loses fights to people who hardly ever fight.Reply

Just because some guys are big does not mean they are heavyweights.

granted Deveaux has adepted since junior into more of a fighter to secure a job but just because someone is adepting to fight more does not make them a legit heavy. If he was a legit heavy he would be fighting 30+ times a year in the AHL like the other heavies do but he is just a guy who is there to stick up for his teammates when he needs to.

his role increased when he got called up last year but still not a legit heavy and i doubt he would claim to be either

Deveaux does not have enough skill or scoring ability to make the NHL in those areas. Therefore he needs to provide a physical presence and fight if he wants to play in the big league. Also many players aren't fighters to begin with but adopt the role because it is the only way to be in the NHL.

The main problem I have with Deveaux is he is a spotpicker. He can fight the middleweights and nonfighters like Steve Begin or Ruslan Fedotenko, but he rarely fights heavyweights. If a guy like Daniel Carcillo can fight Raitis Ivanans who has 4 inches and 60 pounds on him, then Deveaux can start fighting heavyweights. Also Deveaux needs to step it up because Jay Rosehill might begin to take his place if Deveaux doesn't improve.

There's no denying that Deveaux is a spotpicker. He's a big man but really no more than a lightheavy in ability (if even that). He did fight a good fight against Begin however. Begin is clearly much smaller but he's not unfamiliar with fighting bigger guys (Alex Henry and Anthony Stewart being two examples and I know there's plenty more if his career record is checked). I certainly wouldn't call him a novice at the fight game. I can draw an analogy here of Deveaux to another unpopular fighter like Stortini. I admit I don't really care for either player but I have to give Stortini some grudging respect because he is improving as a fighter, whether I like it or not. Deveaux hasn't really trended as strongly that way but he did fight a good fight against Begin and I will give credit when it's due. He still could be called a spotpicker, and I wouldn't argue it, but moreso when he fights a guy like Fedotenko (even though he narrowly lost to Fedotenko, in my opinion) than when a fights a longtime middleweight like Begin.Reply

Bitz may be bigger but he isn't really an experienced fighter. At least Deveaux went out and did get in some fights and did his job. I may not like who he picked but I do give him credit for that. If Deveaux takes on some actual tough guys as the preseason continues I would respect him more.

Its funny that Begin can take on someone like Deveaux and last year Shawn Thornton in the preseason despite being a much smaller middleweight, yet Deveaux can't fight a heavyweight his size. And Leafs fans wonder why people don't like him.Reply

Jay Rosehill clear win Fun

Bitz gets checked in the neutral zone by a Leaf player and Rosehill moves in behind and restrains Bitz as play goes up ice. Rosehill wants to tango and Bitz obliges by dropping the gloves with him. They grapple momentarily. Rosehill's a southpaw unable to free his arm at first. Bitz lands a couple of ineffective lefts to the shoulder and back. Rosehill tries a right that misses and struggles to free his arm. He shakes free his elbow pad and Bitz falls to his knees with the tugging. Rosehill starts firing away with lefts. Bitz quickly gets to his feet and loses his helmet as Rosehill lands several quick punches ( ala John Kordic). Bitz tries to tuck his head in but takes many rapidfire blows to the noggin and a few to the shoulder. After 15 unanswered punches, Rosehill and Bitz clinch near the sideboards. Bitz tosses a couple of errant lefts around Rosehill's head and Rosehill scores the takedown.

Clear win for Rosehill. He didn't appear to really do much damage as Bitz stayed in close but Rosehill was the more active and accurate puncher, and a clear winner on points.

Byron Bitz and Jay Rosehill meet each other near the boards and decide to go. They get a hold of each other and start to grapple. Bitz connects with one slight punch to the jaw while Rosehill frees his left arm from an elbow pad as Bitz looses his balance in the process of holding the left sleeve. Rosehill knocks off the helmet with a couple of lefts before Bitz returns from the ice. Jay throws away about thirteen more blows, most of which clearly connect. He tires himself out as they start hugging. Bitz misses with a rabbit punch and they both tumble down to the ice with Rosehill winning the wrestling contest.

Not a bad scrap with a domination by tougher Rosehill. Bitz let him to get his left loose and took the worst of it. Clear win Rosehill.

Rosehill handled Bitz with ease. Byron landed a partial connect and missed a left. Jay missed a blow. The men jockeyed for position and Bitz lost his balance. Rosehill got his left hand loose and landed a volley of blows. He landed a couple of average punches and missed a few blows. He landed two average punches and four decent blows. He missed a couple of shots. Byron missed a couple of blows and wrestled Jay to the ice.

I rate this as a clear win for Rosehill. He landed many more punches. The blows were moderately effective, but there is no doubt he controlled the fight.

Second fight of the first period as Byron Bitz and Jay Rosehill meet up in the neutral zone and choose to drop the gloves. They get a hold of each other and Bitz throws two lefts, landing one. Rosehill misses a right and they grapple. Bitz falls down and Rosehill gets his left loose. Rosehill throws fourteen lefts in a row as Bitz gets up then just hangs on with his head turned away. Rosehill lands five and then Bitz gets in close quarters and misses two lefts. Rosehill then wrestles Bitz down, ending the fight with the referees breaking it up. Rosehill was much more active but didn't land that many. Still, Bitz barely landed and the win definitely goes to Rosehill in an alright battle.

Rosehill comes in with a fairly late hit on Bitz and adds an extra shove, Bitz turns to Rosehill and they have words. They shed the mitts. They both have a firm grip and neither can get free to land anything until Rosehill manages to break free and unloads about 6 or 7 lefts on Bitz as he steers him towards the boards and the refs are right there. Rosehill clearly won, but there wasn't much Bitz could do to stop the fury of lefts except duck and take them, so for now i'm leaving it at decisive, see what everyone else thinks.

They come together near center ice. Both men trade punches with Bitz getting the early upper hand with lefts. Neither man lands anything of substance with most bunches landing on each other's back. They both fall to their knees and get back up. Rosehill takes the upperhand and bullies Bitz to the ice for the narrow win. A spirited fight, but not many punches landed cleanly.

Do you really think all of those people will be on the roster? Orr & Mayers will be the only ones that make it. The rest are minor leaguers. Toronto has a tough team in the preseason. We will see how it goes in the regular season as Orr and Mayers are the only solid fighters.

Both Ondrus and Orr are right wingers so Rosehill would have to play left wing to have any chance of making the roster. However I don't think the Leafs are going to have two big enforcers on their roster after all the offseason moves they made.

Rosehill hasn't had a chance to prove himself in the NHL yet but he's been a solid AHL heavyweight. I'm guessing he probably won't make the big club but with Burke in charge, it might be possible. Hopefully he does because he's a good battler and a very entertaining one.Reply

As a San Jose Sharks fan, I don't think Ron Wilson was against fighting (nor do I think he was for it though). I don't think he had many enforcers to play. He played Jody Shelley regularly when he was acquired, even in some playoff games. The one guy they had, Scott Parker, was injuried and barely played in the first two years (2005/2006 and 2006/2007) before he moved on. Other than him they just had a variety of other tough guys but none of them were really enforcers, some examples include Ryane Clowe, Doug Murray, Rob Davison, Scott Thornton, and Mark Bell.

Guillaume Lefebvre narrow win Fun 
4
Oreskovic and Lefebvre shed the mitts just outside the Leaf goal crease. Oreskovic quickly fires two overhand rights which appear to hit helmet from the long view. A third Oreskovic right misses as Lefebvre holds him at bay. Lefebvre switches grips and narrowly misses with a big left. He sends Oreskovic's helmet flying with a second punch and then lands two more blows, a grazer off the scalp and then a good shot to the face. Oreskovic pulls him in close and falls to the ice while appearing to attempt a left. Lefebvre falls on top, landing one more left to the body before the officials get in there.

Narrow win for Lefebvre. He landed the best punch of the fight and I'm not certain Oreskovic landed any, though the first two looked like helmet shots from long range. It was a brief fight that could be called even but I'll give Lefebvre the edge in a close one.

The third scrap of the game comes out at the fifth minute of the second period. The two AHL tough guys, Guillaume Lefebvre and Phil Oreskovic, drop the gloves in front of the Leafs' net. As they get a hold of each other Oreskovic surprises Lefebvre with three early rights. Nothing major really connects, except for one helmet shot. Lefebvre changes his grip to the right, loses his helmet and throws away four unanswered lefts, two of which look to land squarely. Oreskovic tries to wrestle Lefebvre to the ice and Guillaume lands on top as they both hit the deck.

Short and not very good fight. I give narrow win to Lefebvre for landing a couple of good shots and scoring the takedown.

They shove off the faceoff and skate through the crease while still scuffling and exchanging pleasantries. As they get to open ice the shed the gloves and tie up quickly. Oreskovic gets a few noogies in at the start from close in, Lefebvre then gets Oreskovic's helmet off, and misses most of his shots, as Oreskovic whiffs on a big right as they tumble to the ice on top of each other.

A quick, crappy fight from two AHL guys fighting for an NHL spot. I'll give it a draw.

Guillaume Lefebvre and Phil Oreskovic drop the gloves by the Toronto Maple Leafs' net and get a grip of each other with no squareoff. Oreskovic throws four rights and lands two. They stand back and pause, then Oreskovic misses a right. Oreskovic tears off Lefebvre's helmet and Lefebvre throws four lefts and lands three, taking off Oreskovic's helmet. Oreskovic then misses a left and goes down to the ice where the officials split them up. Close, short, fight.

Oreskovic tried a couple and landed on maybe one of them. Lefebvre answered back connecting on about three before wrestling Oreskovic down.

Camera is from far away at first, so we see Oreskovic throw a swing but it's difficult to say if it landed on the flesh or not. Camera then moves closer in. Lefebvre then throws a few consecutive swings and only the last one seemed to land on the head of Oreskovic. Lefebvre then pushes him down to the ice and that's when the fight ends with the refs there. Best to call this a draw.

man i want Oreskovic to make the team. True team player who sticks up for teammates without even a second thought.

You can tell some guys after a cheap shot or big hit take a second or 2 to get up the courage to go in but Phil is always game

Love it

Fourth fight on the night and two guys who went earlier, Andre Deveaux (with Steve Begin) and Byron Bitz (with Jay Rosehill). They lose the mitts and come together near the boards by the blueline. Bitz misses a right then gets jerseyed by Deveaux. Bitz misses a blind right and then loses his balance. Deveaux misses a right and is brought down. The linesmen come in and prevent the tilt from going on. Draw since no punches landed in a pretty poor go.

This was a poor scrap. Bitz missed a blow and landed a light punch. Deveaux missed a shot and landed a partial connect. Byron's jersey came up over his head and he slid to the ice. The refs were there quickly to stop the fight. I rate this as a draw. Neither man was able to get going in this brief altercation.

They chat while skating down the ice and Deveaux initiates it and they drop the mitts and grab on. They just hold on, struggling to throw as a stick is stuck between them. After a few missed punches, they fall down to end the crappy fight.

The second fight for both of the scrappers in this game, although they only got roughings each. A crappy draw though.

The second altercation of this preseason game for both guys. They talk for a bit and drop the gloves near the boards. Bitz loses his bucket as each of them falls short with a right. Deveaux puts the jersey over Byron's head and takes one weak blind shot. Bitz goes to his knees, pulling Deveaux with him, so the officials break it up.

Nothing fight and a draw as nothing really significant happened here.

The fifth fight of the game occurs after Phil Oreskovic checked Jamie Arniel. Adam McQuaid goes after Oreskovic. They shed the mitts, grab on, and Oreskovic throws two rights and lands one. McQuaid misses two rights then after a pause, Oreskovic misses a right. McQuaid responds with a missing right, then Oreskovic misses again with a right. McQuaid throws four rights and lands two before Oreskovic responds with two rights that miss. They get in tight and McQuaid removes Oreskovic's helmet but McQuaid loses his own too. Oreskovic's sweater comes up over his head and McQuaid throws four rights but none land and he gets pulled down by Oreskovic who lands a right while going down. The referees get in and separate the two, finishing the scrap. Okay bout between McQuaid and Oreskovic. I thought it was fairly even and call it a draw.

McQuaid throws Jamie Arniel a suicide pass up the middle. Oreskovic freight trains Arniel to the ice. Play moves down to the Leaf end and McQuaid approaches Oreskovic for retribution. Oreskovic is ready, the gloves come off and he hammers McQuaid with a hard right to the left cheek. McQuaid takes it well and avoids Oreskovic's second punch. He tries to answer back but misses with a big uppercut and a followup right. The two big men hold each other at arm's length. Oreskovic misses a right and McQuaid tosses an uppercut to the body. Oreskovic lands a right to the shoulder and leans away as McQuaid lands three quick ones in succession, the first one to the body and the last two, hard shots, to the helmet. Oreskovic responds with two rights to the back and neck. They get in tight and McQuaid pulls Oreskovic's sweater over his eyes as he loses his own helmet. McQuaid connects on three uppercuts to the body and misses a fourth as Oreskovic tugs on his collar and pulls him to the ice. Oreskovic appears to land one more punch just as he's falling on top.

Draw. Oreskovic's first punch was the best of the scrap but McQuaid connected with more overall. It was a close fight that could be called narrow either way. I'll call it even.

Oreskovic and McQuaid collide near the end of the game after Phil's hit on Bruins' Jamie Arniel. Both combatants get rid of gloves and Oreskovic surprises McQuaid with a quick right to the jaw. Adam responds with an uppercut while Oreskovic throws a couple of left jersey jabs. They both fall short with rights before another McQuaid's uppercut reaches the target. Oreskovic turns away and takes a couple of rights to the helmet. He responds with two blind punches, one of which looks to land. They get themselves in tight as both helmets fall to the ice. McQuaid puts the jersey over Phil's head and throws a bunch of uppercuts, landing a couple. Blinded Oreskovic pulls his opponent to the ice and fires away a right before the linesmen wade between.

Decent bout. I think McQuaid got in more punches and did a bit better job to earn the edge. Narrow win Oreskovic.

McQuaid went after Oreskovic after a hit on Arniel. Phil landed a decent blow and missed a shot. He landed a partial connect. Adam missed a few rights. He landed a body shot. Oreskovic missed a couple of punches. McQuaid landed a body punch and a couple of light blows. Phil landed a light punch and missed a shot. Adam landed a couple of body blows. He missed a punch and landed an average blow. The jersey was up in Oreskevic's face. McQuaid slipped to the ice and Phil landed a final solid shot.

I rate this as a draw. McQuaid landed a little more, but some of the blows were body punches. Oreskevic landed a final solid blow and I think he earned the draw.

Oreskovic gets the jump on McQuaid and sneaks in a few shots on Adam. He gives McQuaid some time to get situated and they start whiffing on punches after punches until McQuaid gets Phil's jersey over his head and they fall.

Draw in a somewhat spirited bout for Phil O's second fight of the game.

There was a big hit between delivered by Oreskovic between the Bruins end and the neutral zone which was out of camera range, all you could see was the refs arm go up and the crowd go wild and begin to stand up to observe the crowd this hit drew. As the crowd gathered McQuaid went straight for Oreskovic. Oreskovic was quick to greet McQuaid with some over hand rights before McQuaid could get away from the linesmen and crowd and into some less crowded open-ice. McQuaid answers back and unloads a few on Oreskovic. Oreskovic is quick to respond and they briefly go back and fourth until McQuaid gets the jersey over Oreskovics head and gives him a crack and Oreskovic flings McQuaid to the ice. Not a bad scrap that had a brief exchange, but i have to give McQuaid the edge for landing a tad better.

McQuaid got in a few more late for the edge as Oreskovic never really landed a punch.
