just keep that thought in mind when martin hits zajac, or some other islanders player ( who is not a "star" ) hits some other teams "franchise" player.
you won't see martin running away from answering the bell, ever

I'm sorry but the arguments for goonery are absolutely asinine.

Having said that, Carkner has shown to be a legit 3rd pairing dmen without his other "skills" being taken into account.
carkner (and okposo) went after phaneuf after the goal. you can't really fault carkner for not doing another boyle incident and getting suspended for 10 games.
