What do you all expect laraque to do...just cold **** a guy in the head no matter what? This is what I feared when we signed Laraque, people don't understand the role of a respected pugilist like Laraque. People expect him to run around and act like Jeff Kugel ?(youtube it if you don't remember). That's not how it works...I really like Lucic, but I didn't think he was such a weasel. Eventually, he'll have to throw down with BGL...especially after his antics last night
At the very least, a roughing penalty?

There have been many fights this year where a player clearly instigated a fight but wasn't given a penalty for it. If he's seriously worried that either a shove or facewash which leads to a fight will get him an instigator, then we're in for a long season, my friend.

2 years ago, I agree, they called instigator penalties like they were going out of style. Look at a guy c0ckeyed, get an instigator, a little shove, get the instigator. The past few seasons they've let the enforcers be a little more aggressive in order to get a fight going. It's only BGL that hasn't taken notice.

Besides which, the fight with Fedoruk, he wasn't too concerned with the instigator there. Jumped right off the bench, made a bee-line for the guy & dropped his mitts after a hard check. Fedoruk still had his gloves on.
