Lapierre is not like C Lemieux at all, he's just a grinder. He's not even a pest because he rarely starts ***** up. He's just good at checking.

The problem with the Ruutu(hate writing that name!) hit is that the NHL always punish the conequences instead of the intent. So he's probably gonna get less than Kosto. But the elbow was clearly premeditated. It was a dangerous cheap shot.

p.s. when Ruuto was bragging on the ice and taunting the crowd I sort of missed the days of when players could leave their benchs to take care of business. A good smack on the head would have shut him up.
