Good Luck George. I'm looking forward for your next fight IN the NHL and I'm sure than even after that, you'll do much more with your free time than 99% of people who criticize you.
Fans have a right to be angry and say what they please.
All he had to do is his job and thats fight to stand up for teamates! Regardless of the instigator rule,(which i recall Josh Gorges as saying is one of those penalties you dont mind killing when its for standing up for the team) he never stood up for his team.
Whenever some idiot took liberties on our players it was his job/duty to go out and set him straight, in other words go out and pound the guy regardless if he wants too or not (I still miss Souray for that). Laraque never did it once, it was always a meaningless staged fight after a faceoff. Thats not fighting for your team its fighting for yourself. Im sorry thats not what Bob gave you 1.5 million for.
He let down the fans, his team, and ultimately himself.
People have a right to be pissed.
