In that situation I would have loved to see someone chop Lucic in the back of the knee. Cheap or not, I don't care.

I suppose the proper response would be to send out a "heavyweight" shortly thereafter to beat down Lucic. The Sabres now have one where-as they didn't before.

The one good suggestion was perhaps to have all 5 guys mug Lucic. Even after that though a proper fight should occur later with a person who could handle Lucic.
I think sometimes fans get caught up with how things 'should' be done. The point is that anything, including a 'cheap' mugging of Lucic or a sacrificial beat down of one of our skilled guys would have been preferable to the lack of team-unity that was shown. I'd have much rather seen Vanek or Pommers or Stafford drop the gloves and get pounded. Yeah, they can't fight worth a damn, but that would show that they give a damn.

You can't expect it, but sometimes acting out of character is a necessity.
