I'm not saying fighting will lead to wins, I'm just saying maybe these guys (besides Cally) can get a fire lit under their arses.
* young players do start stuff like that all the time when they're called up. they want to get noticed in the lineup. We we call a player up, they're on their best behavior as not to upset coach John.
We called up a player from the AHL last year, big guy, 4th line aggressive player...
I think he was black or half Hawaiian, does anyone remember who i'm talking about ???
He was called up and he caused HAVOC that game. Running guys, fighting, setting a tone.
... never seen again. Coach John doesn't like that stuff.
I'll tell you for guy that talks as much crap as Torts, he sure doesn't back it up...
