does anyone know Laraque's or Carboneau's reaction to this statement?

Anybody who thinks this was invented by Carbonneau or is an indictment of his coaching ethics needs their toolbox re-aligned. It's been part of hockey for almost 40 years. Brad May was just on the wrong end of it this time, hopefully he gets over it.

Didn't see Francis Bouillon crying to the media about Ron Wilson after May trounced him.

Just saying, it's not the first time.
So, because Laraque was given a specific assignment for a game it's wrong, because Julien mentions it? He shadowed him, asked him to go on a couple of occasions, Lucic refused and Laraque basically took Lucic off his game pretty much. How does that justify anybody 'calling Carbo out'? No fight happened, Laraque didn't jump him.

Was Grapes responsible every time Wensink, O'Reilly or Jonathan went looking for some action during a game?

After the game laraque said he had no instruction from Carbo, but he knew what he had to do when he was sent on face off and presence always at the same time than Lucy.

Ok, back to Brad May with this, he is hardly someone who I would consider to have a credible opinion on the subject. His whole whiny interview was embarrassing as far as I'm concerned.

Julien's comments make total sense and are an effective dig at Carbo. May on the other hand has never been 1/4 the talent Lucic is, much less in a position to critique coaches. He's a vet, yes. He's probably good at assessing the game, yes. But he said this about Carbo not understanding the game AFTER HE DROPPED THE GLOVES WITH LARAQUE.

Carbo misusing Laraque aside, May made a complete ass of himself by whining about the code after losing a fight in a game his team won by blowout. What is he saying by blaming Carbo? That there's no place in the game for guys like Brad May? Of course he was going to have to fight Laraque. A six year old could figure that out going into Saturday night. Or does May think he's there to help his team with his puck skills?

I can't believe that people are actually taking this article seriously...look who wrote it!

Howard Berger!

This is the same joker and a (Leaf homer) disguised as a hockey reporter who used to get singled out and chewed out by Pat Quinn during Leaf press conferences when he was coaching in Toronto because of his idiotic questions and low brow antics!

This article really isn't about May but more about the clown Howard Berger. Just read his article and tell me it doesn't sound like a grade 7 kid wrote it!?!

At least Brad May had the guts to fight unlike some yeller belly chicken crap from Boston wearing #17.

In any regard, Howard Berger just needs to be ignored.

Does this mean that May has never, ever been sent out by one of his coaches to fight? I guess when he picked a fight against Bouillon, that was completely spontaneous. Even if the coach doesn't say "you go fight that guy", it's pretty well implied that a tough guy is going to fight, if the situation's right and he has a dance partner.

If coaches didn't send out heavyweights to fight guys like Laraque and May would be working at Burger King instead of playing in the NHL.

Correct in all respects.

In fact, May was sent out by Crawford along with Bertuzzi on the infamous shift in 2004. Gee, I don't think May was Bertuzzi's usual linemate back then.

I can point out just as many dirty stick-works by Koivu (who I greatly respect as a player and person) or maybe point out other lesser evils by players like Kostitsyn who slew-footed Schenn earlier this season.
I can't figure out why this great poster got banned

Brad May's not dirty, that's one of the funniest things I've ever heard.
LOL yes I'm glad somebody pointed this out. If being a comedian makes you have good hockey sense, then this guy is a damn genius.

I am disappointed in Kostitsyn,no fight ,no emotions and honestly I think Grabovski would probably win the fight!!
I honestly hope that next games against Toronto May is mysteriously a healthy scratch cause he's too ***** to even face Laraque again.

Yeah I love it how these enforcers from 20 years ago try to show they're tough still these days against younger more beastly fighters like Georges and just get put to shame. May should retire before he gets two more ass beatings this season lol.

I saw this and meant to post on it earlier but...

Dear Brad May,

Please shut up and be grateful that you're BFF with Brian Burke. You're a fringe NHL player who would have been out of the league YEARS ago if it wasn't for this fact.

Sincerely,
Me
