, he doesn't have to fight every single game. Seeing the habs with their tales between their legs on so many games for the last 10 years is more then enough proof I need to prove that. If you think otherwise, good for you.
Like I said, having a protector is part of the mix of having a good team, not 10, 1. We have more then enough players to play P.K (Plekanec, Bourque, Moen, Prust, White, Eller, Desharnais, etc.) and I see no problem with double-shifting when the gane goes, most teams rool with 3 lines in the 3rd period anyways.
Lastly, I don't know about you, but I watch because I Love hockey, on TV and playing the game. Adding the entertainement aspect is not flawed at all, we pay for tickets and RDS pays for television rights, that's how life works right? But that was just 1 point in the whole debate.
that's a myth.
