The kid is twenty years old, playing the greatest sport in the world. Emotions will get the better of you sometimes at that age. To vilify him for eternity for it is foolhardy at best IMO.

He and Komisarek had a score to settle and they did.

Hopefully, Julien will have a change of heart next time....Hopefully Lucic will have his ear and maybe get his way. I am angry at the way the staff let him take all of this tonight.....I'm sure he is as well.

To honestly think Lucic is afraid of Laraque is really wishful thinking. Milan has fought and lost before...it wouldn't be the end of the world for him.

Getting back to hockey, no idea how we got the two points....we would have been lucky to get one. This Habs team as dressed tonight threw the body around like I haven't seen them do since the '80's....you guys played a really good game.

Who do I talk to about getting Moderator status, because if this board needs one thing, it's an unbiased superintendant.

Well you hypocrites need to get out of the Habs board, all last year talked about how Komi had to fight Lucy while we explained he was too important to lose for 5 minutes let alone a possible injury that he did get. A Dman is worth two forwards in importance since teams have less of them. Laraque was on the first line tonight so your first liner doesn't hold spit.

Well obviously you have no idea what you're talking about 'cause in ALL my posts, I kept saying that Lucic SHOULDN'T go against Laraque and that the only way it would happen is that Laraque should take the instigator and drop them. I wasn't for a Komi-Lucic battle last year, and on the Bruins perspective I can totally understand that Lucic isn't going with Komi.....

But then I kept hearing all year long from ALL Bruins fans that Komi had to drop them againt Lucic all year....from the start of the year to the end of it. So now what I'm saying is.....if it was good for ALL Bruins fans for that to happen last year.......why can't it be good this year?

But you know what the real reason is? You're actually playing for something else than moral victories this year. You have actually a good team moreso a good system. So now that hockey is suddenly the first important thing ('cause if you do read your game threads last year and all the years before where fighting was the most important part of a game....), I guess you believe less in fighting anymore....

That what has changed. It was easy to beat up the Habs who had no fighters in our lineup and now that a guy beat up one of our top d-men and that is gone for a long time, you don't understand why BGL would want to go with him or that Habs fans expect a fight? Coming from Bruins fans who wanted that a real fighter like Thornton would kill a guy like Bégin for his action on Savard?

Jeez, all Laraque has to do is to go for an instigator penalty. You want Lucic - you can have him for 2 minutes PP. It's that simple. Not gonna make a 1st liner fight with a 4th liner without giving something in exchange.

Lucic was not afraid of Laraque in the least. He'd played smart in a close game.

And why the **** would he fight with Laraque? He is by far the better of the two and it would put us at a disadvantage. We need him as much as you need Komisarek-which if you had him tonite, I think you would've won(IMO). There is no need for him to fight with Laraque anyway. Besides Laraque says he only goes with heavyweights. After calling Lucic a middleweight, what kind of point was he trying to send by going after him. Laraque should've been more busy, you know, playing the game of hockey instead of gooning around making himself look like an ***.

On a positive note for you guys, the twins played well and so did Boullion(sp?)
Man why does it have to be double standards with you guys?

Lucic runs his mouth, pumps his fist up then cowers when called upon. You said Komo had to answer for his "low" legal hip check? How about Lucic answering for his WWE antics? Komo ain't a fighter
and he answered the bell. Lucic loves to fight but pisses his pants when he sees the toughest one.

But you know what. I don't mind. I'll wait as long as it takes till Lucic finally does. We have Laraque for 3 years and he's got a good memory. Till then, Lucic is a chcken, plain and simple.

why would lucic who is already a powerforward fight laraque.

The guy is better a scoring and passing than fighting.

Lucic is about as classy a kid as they get. He doesn't proclaim himself anything other than a lover of the game. He's really a smart player and picks his spots even better.

Well are you new to this board? This is a ****in thread to vent. If Habs fans would be invading their board that way, we would be called all sorts of names and the nicest ones would be trolls.

Don't you think that if it was reverse, the Bruins fans would not be saying the same things? You don't understand why Habs fans want Lucic to drop them with BGL? Who cares that it should or shouldn't be good for Boston and Lucic...since when should we care about what's good for them....

To one of the better posters on any board...

I think it's the fact there is no history there...No cheapshots between the two...no one on one battles....Komisarek/Lucic is a rivalry that is good for hockey. Two hard nosed guys, for the most part clean hockey players. There was a history of questionable hits there as well, even though they were hardly the worst ever.

There is no history with BGL/Lucic. There was no cheapness on Lucic's part on Georges. BGL is acting like Lucic pounded the hell out of Koivu or Kovalev. BGL being *mad* for a celebration IMO is no reason demanding Lucic to fight.

Would I like to see it? Hell yeah. Do I think he should? Hell yeah. Is he a coward, chicken, loser, whatever? Not in my opinion.

Bahaha.

Care to explain his 5-second shift in which he ran back to the bench, away from Laraque?

The thing is trying to intentionally injure a player and showboating are two completely different things, especially when the showboating is done at home. If it was done in Montreal, I would expect you to be angry. The crowd was ALIVE after that fight and Lucic got emotional. Have you not known that when a Bruin player wins a fight, they do that often. I remember PJ Stock doing that after almost every decisive win at home.

Is there some sort of function on the Bruin's board that whenever the word "Lucic" shows up on another team's thread all the Boston posters get notified so they can come and stick up for their hero?

Don't remember him on the ice? If you were watching on TV, I believe the camera followed him around while BGL tried to chase him down shift after shift. Kinda hard to miss. I think you were watching the wrong game or something.

Seriously though, why would Lucic fight Laraque? WHY? Can you seriously answer that? Give me a good answer for it...please.

Habs fans being pissed off at Lucic and calling him a coward for not fighting George Freaking Laraque, the well known one and only greatest hockey fighter in the world, makes ALL Habs fans look bad. And I'm friends with some pretty level-headed Habs fans.

You sir, are making them look bad. I guarantee they will agree with that!

Be proud though, Montreal played well and outplayed Boston most of the night. One suggestion though, don't change your entire gameplan just because of a 20-year-old sophomore.

wow..... let's try and keep things in perspective. It was a regular season hockey game between two rivals. I'm a Bruins fan but try to be respectful to fans of a team I respect. This is the kind of stuff that will keep me from reading the Habs fans who bring a lot of insight and hockey knowledge to this page. Seriously, that's cutting pretty low....

Within the last year...

Begin fought Thornton, Reich and Hnidy
Latendresse fought Chara (well Chara just decided to slug him)
A Kostitsyn fought Ference and Stuart
Kostopoulos fought Alberts, Stuart, Reich and Hnidy
Bouillion fought Reich
Komisarek fought Lucy


In most of those cases the Habs were the lesser weight class and were the better player to be off for 5 minutes but nooooooooo...poor for Lucy to do that would be silly. He should stick up for himself.

It's because none of them are first-line players like Lucic.
