etc etc (everyone on the Habs except for markov/kovalev/koivu.

of course a skill player is going to pick his spots to fight. Lucic in the box for 5 minutes hurts his team because unlike Laraque, Lucic actually knows how to play hockey and is an offensive threat.
Considering Tanguay play 22 fewer games and was only 1 point behind the great Lucic it is safe to say that he would have had more points than him which makes it a poor comparison....Same goes for Lang.

Saying he had more points than Andrei Kostitsyn and Plekanec is a valid point as both of these guys played like crap this year, especially Plekanec...
