Pacioretty decided to lip off at Chara after scoring a goal and Chara made sure he paid for it. You know who will fight Chara and make him pay for it? Nobody. Nobody in the league can take down Chara. That's why Boston paid him so much when he was a UFA.

Honestly I think Hab fans are so soft as fans that all they can do is hope someone comes in and makes them feel big and tough. Makes me laugh. Larry Robinson wasn't much of a fighter but that was all Montreal really needed in the 70s to keep the worst of the Flyers in check. I think Jarred Tinordi will play a similar role plus actually play hockey.
So what you are saying is to just be a *****, take it like a *****, and then hope that acting weak will make the bullies leave you alone.

John Scott does not have to pick a fight with Chara or Lucic. Just having Scott on the bench caused Lucic to play a nice clean game of hockey without cheap shots or running players.

Deterrence. It's a cool word that some people do not know the meaning of.
