Gorges and Gio fighting way bigger guys/goons seem a valiant demo of courage but it's stupid, useless and just ridiculed themselves. You fight the Grabs, Kadri and Kessel, for example. Teams target our skilled guys but the stupid Habs seldom do that to their opponent. When Kadri flattened Emelin, you smaller Habs should get tough back at him. Honestly, dare I say stupid Habs should learn a thing or two from Marchand in that department.
This wuss mentality of "we don't initiate; if we receive, our police will do the dirty work for us" is sickening. You should be ready to do the dirty work yourself: fight the guys your own size, target the skilled players.
Playing tough means not backing down from anybody. You are asking them to play like panzies.
