Point at Gaustad then. That was part of his role AND he wore a letter. Again, each player needs to stick within his role, and show them that they can't be intimidated through their own Role. Scorers should have put up more points, run tim thomas out of net! Hitters shouldn't have let a single bruins player touch the puck without getting flattened. Fighters should have fought. I could understand being upset that the team took NO action, but expecting even the skilled players to fight is just stupid. Again, go ask the Pens board if they would expect that of Crosby. Youd get laughed out of there, maybe even get a Trolling infraction. Thats how insanely stupid the idea is.
