I would hope that's the case. I'd rather lose Lane or Lucic for 5 minutes for a fight with a useless goon.

I really dont get those few posters in here that want Lucic or even worse Chara to fight Orr.

Even if they win the fight you lose them for 5 mins and nothing would make the Leafs happier than 5mins without Chara on the ice. And what happens if they lose or get seriously hurt?
I just dont see trying to prove a point against Orr is worth the risks associated with it.

Some leafs fans hoping someone takes a run at Dougie over on their board. Stay classy, you guys.

Chara is off the ice for generally 30-35 minutes anyways...not sure what the big deal is... He's not a goalie.

Apparently MaClaren himself tweeted he would be playing tonight.

Not to mention he was a -3 the other night. I want to see an angry and hungry bruins team tonight.

You and me both.

I love a good fight as much as anybody. But I thought the object was to win. I didn't get the memo I guess.

If Orr and MacDermid go as the designated cement heads....fine. Only reason for Chara or Lucic to beat of Orr is if he steps out of his role and runs skill players.

Generally against Toronto he plays 25 minutes against Kessel exclusively.

I care much more about Lucic getting hurt badly in a fight against Orr than losing him for five minutes.

Exactly. Not worth the broken nose there... Orr is the most dangerous fighter in the league.

MacDermid has already lost two convincing fights vs McLaren this year, so I hope he keeps his gloves on... Don't want to see another Bruin dropped two games in a row,

He seems to completely shut our team down when he is on the ice. Well him and the fact half our team plays scared of you.

Orr is a goon and I don't want anyone on the B's off the ice because of him.

This is what would worry me if I was a Bruins fan. A severe concussion or blown out shoulder is a real possibility. Not worth it imo.
But as a Leaf fan I hope the fight happens. I dont want to see anyone get hurt but its a great trade off for us.

It's not the 5 minutes for me personally, but unnecessarily increased injury risk. I'm fine with Chara or Looch fighting when it's the result of of something that happened on the ice and warranted a response, but not in "staged" fights against 5 mins a night goons.
Oh yeah and Orr beats up anyone on this team, no question, maybe except Chara if Z hugs him quick enough.

Lucic is a hothead with a short fuse so it wouldn't surprise me if they go at it. I expect Lucic to lose if that happens. If I were the Leafs, I would try to piss him off by targeting another player.

Let the Toronto goons stay on the ice.

Every time they throw one of those losers over the boards it's like a powerplay.

I could see Lucic winning but it still wouldn't be worth the risk or trade off. But I agree with you, its in our best interest to try to bait him into a stupid fight.

It's the smart thing to do.
My hope is that Orr is ignored. Seguin & Hamilton score. Leaf Nation implodes.

Orr's head is made of iron, he will be looking to pounce tonight with Thornton down, who stands up to the bully?

No one. You don't have to engage him. Let him play his five minutes without making an impact.
