Let's put it this way, people project him as a Darcy Tucker type of player. Do you think Tucker would hesitate in going after a guy like Foligno after the crap he pulled last game.
I personally am tired of watching leaf players getting their ***** handed to them in fights. Since the holwegg acquisition, watching that maniac get treated like a piņata game in and game out was humiliating. Kulemin vs Gleason, komisarek vs lucic, Armstrong Vs seidenberg etc etc. loved having Orr, he was the only one making games vs Boston bearable when he was dressed, the one player who made me proud to be a leaf fan whenever he dropped his gloves. Ross is way out of his weight class, and really has no need to fight foligno. Let Fraser fight him (when he returns) or devane when he's eventually on the team, or broll. Foligno's time will come, leafs got plenty of size/nastiness in the pipeline. No need to throw a small rookie in Ross to the wolves, where his already brittle confidence could take a hit, or worse he could be injured.
