Now if both of them thought that everything that had happened between them was relatively clean, they would not have accepted to go at it like they did yesterday. And if Komisarek would have turtled if Lucic had sent the invitation, his reputation throughout the league would have been tarnished for good. The guy, at the very least, has some honor and needed to respond again to a kid who most people in here think he'll be killed by the great BGL.
They went at it yesterday because Lucic was running around with something to prove last year. That's why he fought 4th line fighters like Boll. He's a headstrong kid that looks for trouble. No different than Neil constantly trying to get Komi to go every game...I hope you also didn't feel that he 'needed' to fight Neil as well.
In no way is Laraque here to help the team feel braver so that they can fight more often, IMO.
Just as Laraque is in a class of very few fighters, Lucic is in a different fighting class than Komi. I knew that last year as well. Laraque is here to protect Komisarek, whether you want to believe it or not. For all intents & purposes, Lucic needed/needs to be viewed as a heavyweight fighter. I can't help it if most people on this board didn't see that.
