in regards to the shelly fight: winning clearly accomplished nothing, losing would have been awful....so whats the purpose him fighting? its not like if Boogaard wasnt there shelly was gonna drop the mitts with anisimov
i'd take another prust over boogaard anyday of the week and twice on sunday
You just don't get it...
In last night's game Boog negates Shelley. That allows Prust to kick Carcillo's can without having to worry about facing Shelley. Haven't you noticed how well Prust is playing because he doesn't need to be the "enforcer". He plays hard and now has the "luxury" of dropping the gloves if it serves a purpose.
Is it coincidence that our boys are playing much more spirited this year? Maybe...maybe not.
Boog is not keeping us from winning the Stanley Cup; he's providing some protection while the rest of the team goes about that pursuit without having to constantly worry about who's going to defend them. It's always nice to have the toughest father on the block.
On the ice or not, Boog's name in the lineup serves a purpose.
