Of all the players we lost lately, losing Carkner almost hurt the most for me. That presence was so valuable. I cant blame the Isles for offering him one of those last Laraque type contracts.

Of course, having Carkner isnt going to prevent other teams from cheap-shotting Isles star players - it just allows them to hold teams accountable for it. The liberties you will take when you are going to be held accountable for it, are quite different than those you will take when thinking there will be no consequences. Surely we've all seen enough NHL examples of that with our own eyes not to question it?
