Detroit is capable of standing up for themselves if necessary. They've got Abdelkader, Kronwall, Bertuzzi, just to name a few. Datsyuk likes to hit people too.

I'm a huge fan of Detroit (winners with class: Lidstrom), although I'm not a fan of Bertuzzi, but that's another topic!

But...I wonder what would happen if Detroit was in the same conference with Boston and Philly??

Everytime Detroit would beat Philly and Boston...they would resort to violently injuring Detroit's players. Has Boston/Philly ever tried to make a comeback from 2-0 or 3-0??? No, they forget about hockey and they just try to injure their opponents.

Detroit would have to get 1-2 protectors, no?
Unless the NHL starts punishing players with lengthy suspensions....


Go White Go!! (true ''old school'' warrior/protector).
So glad coach Martin is using White.

Go Pyatt Go!! (Pyatt was a defensive warrior in last year's playoffs...let's give him credit). White IN the lineup vs violent teams like Philly/Bos, and heck...he should be a regular.
We have good depth. Pyatt is cheap and awesome for our PK and protecting leads. He's so reliable with his defensive game and speed. I like Pyatt more when White is in the lineup to add toughness/grit/protection...

Excellent point. Philly beat us up in the playoffs and eliminated us, while Boston beats us up everytime we play them (despite us usually beating them on the scoreboard). The East is definitely the more physical conference these days, as Anaheim is nowhere near the bullys they were when Burke was there...

All we need is Rupp, resign Mara, and keep White up and we are in good shape to battle with the beasts of the east. It's not a difficult thing to do.

Except we've beaten them nine of the last eleven times. Philly beat us in the playoffs because they beat us along the boards.

You didn't pay attention to the stuff in the parenthesis right after the bolded part.

Yes, and I pointed that out myself, but they cost us wins regardless, as how many times have we lost guys after playing them? Pacioretty, Spacek, Pyatt... and thats just after the last 2 times we've played them.


And for all the hate Laraque got, we didn't have Lucic running around going after Pouliot, or guys having their necks broken when he was around...

and laraque was a liability. A goon is not the answer. I'd love for the habs to trade for crombeen or jared Boll.

Laraque was a liability against other teams, but I was way more comfortable playing Boston with him in the lineup than I am now. Was fine with him as 13th forward for teams like Boston and Philly.

Put me on the Rupp bandwagon, guy can play and is a legit heavywieght...

White is awesome in his role, hes in my opinion a good upgrade on Pyatt, a hard worker and hes the kind of guys that teammate grow to like very quickly.

Boychuk that try to amputate Subban knee 2 weeks ago, right away White was on him, and same thing last night when Stoner take a shot at Palushaj.

Hes a good teammate, and for us good entertainment. Love his attitude.

I also wouldn't mind Gillies, but I'm sure I'm in the minority on that one...

Gillies is one of the elite fighters in the game, and while he's a ********, he isn't as bad as his reputation. That hit on clutterbuck was nothing after clutterbuck ran a guy dangerously from behind...

He has a 2min 52 average time on ice per game with the Islanders he is probably one of the worst hockey player in the NHL right now we need a guy that can at least play 8 min a game without being a liability and can be effective in all three zone while bringing toughness, hitting and good fighting.

Sounds like Rupp.

Also Ian Schultz has 3 fights in the last week. Hopefully he can be that player for us eventually...

Conboy has the potential also.

Clarkson, Neil, Rupp, Boll, Crombeen, Winchester, Eager, Prust, Carcillo, Thorburn, Thornton, Gaustad, Martin, Konopka, Asham, Thompson, Bradley, Jackman, McLeod, Dorsett, Kostopoulos and Nystrom all fit the bills.

We already have Moen and White in that mold and I think we need another one of theses players, plus always a big dman that will protect others like Mare is doing right now with this we would be able to go to war against others teams.

And for all the hate Laraque got, we didn't have Lucic running around going after Pouliot, or guys having their necks broken when he was around...
About Laraque...so true. I actually was not a fan of Laraque's chit-chat fest with Lucic...I wanted Laraque to **** him up. You know that's what Lucic wants to do to our players. But it's so obvious now that Lucic and Chara were SO SCARED of Laraque. They're taking advantage of it now. Can't wait for Conboy and Schultz to take them out of the game for good since the League won't).
My main concern is not winning vs the violent-sore-loser Bruins (since we beat them on average 8 out of 10 times). My main worry is that they injure our players. I do feel better with White, Mara and Moen, but we still need to add one more this summer. A player that can contain ogres like Lucic and Chara (biggest sore losers in the NHL,imo). Not an easy task (but not impossible) since he'll have to play decent defense to get 8min. a game from coach Martin...

Versus sore loser Bruins: our victory is 2pts in the standings ; injuring our players is their victory. The League has to step in to prevent this violent barbaric circus from happening.

Campbell should warn Montreal and Boston before the game...keep it clean or else...(imo, Chara should have gotten a warning before it escalated...too late for that now...Campbell knew Chara wanted revenge on Pacioretty).

Boychuck, Lucic and Chara are bullying our players...it's so obvious now that Laraque isn't here anymore.

Love how White defended Subban after Boychuk tried to take out his knees (the League should suspend anyone who goes after the knees the way Boychuk did...shouldn't wait for an injury to suspend someone...it's not like Boychuk has Sakic's reputation, so to me he's obviously guilty of trying to injure Subban).

Hes a good teammate, and for us good entertainment. Love his attitude.
White (to me) is so old-school!! Straight out of a time machine (from the 70's-80's). He reminds me of a cleaner, better, bigger, taller version of Darcy Tucker. White seems to be smart...he protects when his teammates need it, and he doesn't play dirty...he's there for the team. Coach Martin should like White (it's showing right now and hope it continues)...what's not to like

Pyatt and White:
Two different players/roles. Pyatt was a playoffs warrior...let's not forget that. He should be cheap for several years (great for our cap, great for our PK). Pyatt is a defensive specialist (so reliable at getting the puck out of our zone) and badly needed for our PK.
White is solid for our 3rd-4th lines...old-school character, toughness/grit, can play hockey and fight, and has been PERFECT at protecting his teammates (ex: Subban, Palushaj).

And...I ****ing love White for what he did to Boychuck's ugly face (after that violent attempt to injure PK's knees). Boychuck deserves a suspension for that obvious attempt.

**** I love Ian Schultz. Just watched his fight videos and man does he have fighting skills. Much much better fighting technique than White's. If he bulks up to 225-230 watch out.

Is it too early for sometime next season? (few games?).

I'm hoping he can protect our players from violent bullying by ogres like Lucic, Boychuk and Chara. (and especially prevent our players from being violently hurt, ex: Chara on Pacioretty).


I just hope he can play decent defense so as to get at least 6 to 9 min. a game.

Go Schultz Go!!
