How can anyone say he was just 'defending his team' for the majority of his fights? He picked them almost every night, whether the other player wanted it, or not. He was a bully on the ice, and I loved him for that.
Here's Chris inciting a riot in the classic Boston/Montreal game
Here's Nilan taking it into the locker room with Fraser, you know.. because Chris was so honorable all the time... not a bully in any way..
Nilan throwing a puck at Baxter, beating on him
In the second clip, did you see Patrick Roy going down the tunnel and get into the middle of it to help Nilan?
Damn, love the intensity and passion of Roy and he is exactly what this franchise needs.
Oh, and I disagree with you on this thread but thanks for posting up those old videos. Brings back some great memories.
