Earlier in his career, Chara was also a bad fighter, but he learned over time and is now pretty dominate.
The other factor is, Carbo is probably telling him not to fight. It's not worth losing him for 5+minutes and it's also not worth the risk of him injuring himself.
Would I like him to pummel a guy like Lucic? Sure. But right now Lucic is a better fighter and the talent tradeoff is strongly in the Bruin's favour. Plus, a Lucic/Komisarek fight has more potential to be a momentum changer in the Bruin's favour. If Lucic wants to fight a Hab so much, he can go tap Laraque on the shoulder. It shouldn't happen, for the same reasons Komisarek shouldn't fight Lucic.
Great points, plus wouldn't everyone say that Komi is a better hockey player than Lucy ? So what, who gives a **** that Lucy is better fighter ? It's called hockey and who wouldn't be happy to be called the better HOCKEY player.
