Teams don't run Miller like Lucic did a lot. When they do, the players on the ice should take exception to it and fight. If that means Vanek, Pominville, Stafford, etc. get into one or two fights a year, so be it. It's not like asking them to completely change their game.
Yet if Gaustad (or lets call it Scott or McCormick for this year) is on the ice is it unreasonable to expect him to fight instead of Vanek or Pommer?
