Just saw the McGinn/Stuart fight. Wow this kid is tough.
I hope Shelley and Tostitov were taking notes. McGinn absorbed a pretty good shot to toss right back at Stuart, then took the fight right to him. He is, of course, the lowest of humanity for continuing to punch even as Stuart fell to the ice.
Montoya's lower body injury likely due to Briere running him. No way Briere tried to miss him, and I find it really hard to believe that someone with Briere's level of hockey-smarts didn't know where he was skating.
Also, I'm getting REALLY tired of the Jets being the team that other teams 'come alive' on.
I'm just going to say it right now, even if this kid doesn't stick in the NHL, he deserves a ton of credit for how he's stepped in during injuries. He's everything that you want in a hockey player.
I think he's here to stay. He's getting on the score sheet most nights and bringing size/toughness to the lineup. If he didn't have respect in the locker room already, he earned it tonight. Stuart went after Voracek orginally and Tye stepped in for Jake.
