I say since BGL is injured and clearly Lucic is too afraid to fight him we call up Stewart for a game he has the speed to out race Lucic and the stamina to play the same minutes as Lucic and will be able to fight him and likely win.
if the habs need to call up one player to cover a guy like Lucic for one game, we are in trouble.
the bruins are a team the last time i checked. I would be more concerned with players who actually make a difference in a game.
the whole Lucic thing is so overdone its not even funny. I remember beating them 8 times last year and eliminating them with Lucic. All of a sudden we need a gameplan solely around him? I didnt get the memo that he was a 50 goal scorer. Look what happened when laraque shadowed him- oh yes we lost and he scored.
Komisarek will cover Lucic. He alwasy does and he does a darn good job. No body gets to Lucic like him. I'd bet Komisarek has been chompig at the bit for this one for some time. He'll hit and frustrate Lucic every chance he gets and now he won't have to worry about fighting him since he's already been there and done that.
Stick Lapierre on him, he's been playing great and could maybe Esa Tikanen him a bit, nothing to crazy, but shadow him a little, piss him off, and Laps wont drop his gloves anyway.
Wow, the "NEW" NHL has brainwashed me.
But we really don't need to worry about him that much, although he's a blatant charger, he has a bit of class. I think the tempers may be a little more mellow now that he got to fight Komi, he'll still go hard, that's how he plays, but I don't think it'll be exactly the same mentally.
