. The fact that it was on Lapierre there will likely be little displineary action..
AS for fighting Laraque, why would he?
The game is pretty much over, 3-0 at that point, Laraque is a much bigger man then Jarkko or Chris Neil so why would either one of them fight them...they know there probably gonna get the crap kicked out of them so why bother...its probably not gonna change the momentum of the game for our side so its pointless to fight him...there are more people than Ruutu and Neil who would walk away from him so I wouldnt call him a chicken *****, I would call it knowing your place...
I agree. He has a hearing scheduled so we'll see.
I'm surprised there's even a hearing on this but I guess the league wants to at least look into these incidents in more details nowadays. They seem to punish by severity of consequences so I don't expect to see anything.
Damn, the Habs are really starting to get nice new rivalries going though... Lucie, Grabs, now Ruutu... season is looking promising!
