did you see the elbow he threw in an exhibition agaisnt Sweden too?

the kids dirty and has some issues upstairs, hopefully he deals with them because he IS talented.
See, I'm of the mind that the elbow he threw against Sweden was EXACTLY on the line, and the kind of play that he should make every now and again, just to **** with the team. Rodin got bumped on the nose, and that about all it amounted to. Wasn't vicious, wasn't over the top, wasn't particularly violent. Keep in mind that Sweden was considered Canada's biggest hurdle going into the WJC. Cormier was just sending a message along the lines of "If you try and beat us, we'll beat the **** out of you." Nothing wrong with intimidation. That's Claude Lemieux-esque to me, and that's the kind of player the Thrashers need.
