This is sarcasm, right? Guess my meter needs a 1,000-mile checkup.

Nov. 22, 2008:

On their first shift together, Laraque tapped Lucic on the leg with his stick, then got in his face, asking the Bruin to drop his gloves. Lucic didn't bite. For the rest of the period, Laraque was talking to Lucic, no doubt questioning his courage in the most explicit of ways.

Lucic continued to decline, prompting the Montreal fans to boo the forward and chant his name. But Lucic had someone more important to answer to than Laraque.

Namely, his boss.

"There was no way it was going to happen," said coach Claude Julien, who had, before the game, forbidden Lucic from fighting Laraque. "[Shawn] Thornton was there, ready for Georges. Nothing happened. My tough guy was ready for their tough guy. Simple as that. I told him not to fight. It was me."
Lucic landed a game-high nine hits last night but never dropped the gloves. Instead, Lucic scored his sixth goal of the season to tie the game at 11:11 of the second period.
