Glen Metropolit.

Picked off from Flyers when they were in town. He carried his hockey bag from one locker room to the other.

Is it my imagination or did Staubitz not play a single shift after he failed to drop the mitts with Neil, after Neil ran Price and laid some bodychecks all over the ice last night against Ottawa.

I was thinking... if you ain't gonna take on their guy after those incidents, or do the same yourself, then you might as well sit on the bench.

Begin was also a waiver pick up from Buffalo, if we're building a list.

In the same waiver draft, the Habs also picked up Darren Langdon. Both of those guys were great in their roles.

Quite true. Though I'm not really prepared to call Langdon "great" in his role. Filled the role, scored that huge tying goal (his only playoff point?) against the Bruins after Theodore had been holding the fort for a bit at 1-0, but was one of those Laraque/Staubitz wastes of a roster spot (different era/game then, though, I guess). Couldn't even get 5 mins of icetime from him because he was that poor of a hockey player, lol. Definitely a tough dude, though, in the days of our gentle giants.

I think he's proven himself to take on whatever comes his way. He chatted with Neil, things remained civilized after that, the Price incident wasn't anything major.

I notice teams showing a little more respect out there.

Maybe great was a little too strong of a descriptor for Langdon. I guess he seemed so effective in that role compared to guys like Blouin, Dwyer, R. Simpson, Odjick (especially after he broke his hand and went with the one glove on method), Cummins, Morrisette and Vukota before him. They calibrated my expectations for a fighter at that time low.... real low.

I do agree that was a different time, though. With guys like Simon, Oliwa, McCarthy and the Belak/Domi tandem on other teams, I was glad to have a genuine heavy around to distract them for a while.

LOL. This wasn't even that long ago, but I feel like breaking into a rendition of "Those Were the Days".

This.

And Neil, yesterday, for the first time, wasn't running his mouth with our players and he wasn't taking run at guys.

Staubitz had a couple of big hits yesterday also.

Staubitz plays an effective role, he is not a waste of a roster spot.

Seriously though, eh?! I know what you mean. The game really was just that different immediately pre/post-lockout, and it already feels like so long ago.

Your opinion, and you're entitled to it.

I notice a bit more respect too, but.... I think Neil did not stop after his chat.

And... did Staubitz play in the third?
