Fedoruk is more of a Shelley than a Carcillo, no?

Fedoruk always skates here I believe. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong though.

Fedoruk is not an NHL player at this point, I fear.

That's what one of the articles I saw had said. Fedoruk can play for Adirondack, IMO. He'd be a good guy to have in their locker room after the bad season they had last year.

i'd rather keep Carcillo, he's got way more heart & soul than Fedoruk.

Fridge is one of my favorite Flyers ever. But there's no room for what he brings to the table on this team.

Fedoruk isn't even close to an NHL player anymore. He was always a good guy though, so I wouldn't mind him on the Phantoms.

There's barely room on the table for all the parts of his 'some assembly required' titanium face.....

Don't need him there either, with Blood Klotz and Crimson Clackson on the roster.

if you think Fedoruk brings just as much or more to the table than Carcillo, please just stop posting here

Come on guys. This is the kind of scenario in which we could trade Carcillo for a bad-decent prospect. How do we pass that up?

No to Fridge he is not a player we need in the NHL, maybe he'll play for Phantoms? Sad memories how he was KO'ed by Orr. Just sad.

Newsflash, Carcillo loves being a Flyer and is cheap! Why would we trade him for some average prospect? If Guerin means trading Carcillo, I am against it, if Fedoruk is anywhere near the Flyers roster, I will break down and cry.

Fedoruk is one of the few players that I would absolutely say that Shelley is better than.

Fridge is not an NHL player period. Let alone on a team as deep as this one.

Is that a joke? The Fridge doesn't have the bite he used to, but heart he has in spades.
Quote:
Looking back, Todd Fedoruk said, fighting Thrashers tough guy Eric Boulton in the first game of the season was "stupid." At the time, he believed he had no other option. The challenge was made, and he responded. It is the way Fedoruk has always played. The Lightning left wing was careful to shield the right side of his face, which was so badly damaged in an October 2006 fight with the Wild's Derek Boogaard that five titanium plates were needed to put his orbital and cheekbones together. Titanium mesh holds the eye in place. "If I take a punch in the right spot, I could lose it," Fedoruk said. So what the heck was he doing with Boulton?

"I wanted to get my 1,000th penalty minute in a fight," Fedoruk said. "It's a pride thing."

He has swallowed his pride, and kept his fists to himself, since.

Fedoruk, 30, has 10 titanium plates in his face. Three hold together orbital and cheekbones around his left eye, shattered in a November 2003 fight with the Islanders' Eric Cairns. Two others hold together a sinus bone broken by a flying puck.

Fedoruk knows it is best that he no longer fights. But if he doesn't fight, how can he play?

"The way I was taught is, if you play a certain way, if somebody challenges you, you back it up, and you take that guy down," Fedoruk said.

The 6-foot-2, 240-pounder has been good at it, too, and prolific, with 117 fights in a nine-year NHL career in which he has taken on the biggest and baddest.

"He was," said Zenon Konopka, Fedoruk's teammate with the Lightning and Ducks, "one of the toughest guys in the league."

The dilemma is how that toughness should be applied now.

How can he play his usual feisty style if he can't answer the bell when challenged? It just doesn't seem right, he said: "It's a shock to your pride and your manhood."

He has wrestled with that so much this season, his play has suffered, and he was scratched for nine games from Nov. 22 to Dec. 7. He said it was for the best, as he had time to evaluate his career and reinforce how it affects his wife, Theresa, and their kids, Luke, 5, and Sienna, 3.

"I had to learn I don't owe anything to anybody," said Fedoruk, acquired by the Lightning in July from the Coyotes in the Radim Vrbata deal. "I want to stay here as long as I can, and whatever I have to do, I'll do. If that means reinventing my role, that's the biggest thing.

"I came into the league saying if I play with an edge, I have to back it up. It's just not like that anymore. I've got mortgages to pay, a family to take care of."

Said coach Rick Tocchet: "There are lots of guys who agitate and are always in your face, and get rebounds and are in your face, chip the puck and are in your face. Those are the guys he has to be like to be effective."



Fedoruk said at least one doctor told him he should not play after he was crushed by Boogaard. Yet Fedoruk, who split that season with the Ducks and Flyers, fought six more times that season and took on the Rangers' Colton Orr in March.

Orr broke Fedoruk's jaw.

"I felt I wanted to keep the same game that got me here," Fedoruk said. "You want to keep that respect. It's something you earned. But if you go into a chaotic situation worried that something will happen to you, you're not going to do very well."

And that brings us back to the battle with Boulton.

Said Theresa: "The first thing he said was, 'I got in a fight. I turned my face so I wouldn't get hit, so I got hit in my ear and lost my balance and went down.' I thought, 'My, God, what is he doing? Where's your head? You don't need to do this.'

Konopka agrees.

"If he feels weird, he can't fight. It's absolutely ludicrous. He's paid his dues. He's fought everyone. He is a warrior."

I would love to have Fedoruk....

...Around this team, in some kind of player development role. Think Hatch, but to a lesser degree. Maybe with the Phantoms.

Fridge has always had a pretty good attitude. Much like Cote, he's totally useless as a player, but his work ethic could benefit other players who still can play.
