Yeah, he'll definitley play vs Calgary I'd think. They are a very gritty, scrappy team

What did I say about him that was wrong?--that he was a goon plain and simple who had idea about checking his man? I think that about sums him up. I really don't see this comparison that some have made to Kocur. Unless you're just comparing him to being a very tough western canadian kid. In that he compares to Kocur. I looked up Kocur in the database and compared him to Orr and this is what I saw that by the time Joe was 23 (like Orr is now) he had already played two full NHL seasons and had 19 NHL goals. On top of that his last season in the WHL he had 40 goals. Orr played a whole season last year in the AHL and had 1. So he may be comparable to Kocur as a fighter but not as a hockey player. Hollweg is more comparable to Kocur the hockey player but not Kocur the fighter.

Don't get me wrong TBBB I have no problem with Colton being a part of this team--it's just that like Renney I look at him as an odd man out on most nights and I look at 2 points in the standings as more important than sending messages to the goons on other teams.
