People discredit him a lot, but he beat Lucic pretty bad at one point.
Lucic was playing and fighting with a broken nose at the time. Gleason popped him right on the broken nose and that was pretty much it. I wouldn't call it a bad beating by any stretch. Looch was also a teenager at the time... I'd love to see a rematch between the two, because the outcome would be very different from the first.
Chara draws non-euro heavys and chris neil. Not to mention the fact that he looks like a new born giraffe every fight. Carkner destroys everyone apart from orr whos got his number. It irrelevant either way because carkner, erskine and engelland are bottom 4 defencemen, john scott is an ahler or NHL sideshow and Chara is just a perennial norris trophy candidate. As a sens fan and carkner fan Id take chara back in a second.
