One night a smallish Ranger forward fought Larry, won the fight, cut him up a bit and Dryden was distraught, he figured it was all over . Nothing changed though, jus lost a fight.

I hate seeing Komi fight, I remember cringing when he dropped them with Brashear, he just isn't good at it. He has nothing to prove in terms of courage, not with his blocked shots and overall game, he just isn't good at fighting, whether it's technique,slow hands, he isn't good at it.
I don't recall that part of the book, which is an excellent indication that it's time to reread it.
