But, I am fan of Denny and would rather be at the Nationals!
Plus with UNB's size, they should be laying the body to UPEI
Good point about the repercussions of a second fight this season to Denny. Hadn't thought about that. But I'm not saying UNB should be going out looking for a fight, but instead, for a change, just stop turning the other cheek (instead of picking up yet another penalty for putting the puck over the glass or hooking while on the PK).
I have come to believe that just ignoring bullying doesn't make it go away. Not in life. Not on the ice.
As for Carroll and the scouts, add me to the list that believe he didn't help his cause. Or maybe that's why he had a bad game - not all players react well to the pressure of playing in front of a scout (if he knew they were there that night).
