Now i realize his contract is a bit over the top, but i just think he should be appreciated a little bit more around here.
I'm with you. His energy and hitting will be missed. The hit on Zach Redmond was a close call imo but he got right up after it. It's not like the guy was left laying on the ice and warranted the action Wright took. Wright also has to be responsible for his actions. His guy wasn't hurt but Upshall nearly broke his ankle as a direct result of Wright's tackling him. If Parros is going to play in Winnipeg on Tuesday, I hope he breaks the code and bends James Wright in half on his home ice in front of his home crowd. Rivalries are started this way which isn't a bad thing.
