He actually has to go to New York before Boston again.. I'll take the points though.

Everyone bashing on Lucic dreams of him playing for their team....

Lucic was absolutely in the right for retaliating here. The refs were incompetent as usual also.

I am very disappointed in the Bruins letting this go as well.

Seriously. Be a least a little logical. The plays are not similar. besides, the question was, when has Lucic gone after anyone after the whistle. This video leaves that specific question unanswered.
Disagree.

There was two seconds left in the game, he hits McDonagh from behind when for all intents and purposes the game was already over (behind the net with the puck pinned, mind you) and then pops McDonagh twice when the horn sounded. The semantics of how bad the hit from behind was in both instances is completely irrelevant.

The purpose of me bringing it up was to say that call or no call on the board, Lucic would have gone full goon mode anyway, which was a contention of that poster. The missed call was irrelevant. Lucic gets mad and doesn't control himself all the time.
Not sure of the exact time, but the whistle hadn't gone, the puck was in the Rangers zone, and the Bruins were down one. Not sure how any of that play is dangerous.
And for the record, I have no issue with McDonough going after Lucic. My point is that you were using that video of evidence of Lucic going after someone after the whistle.

all i can do is laugh about how blatent its become
Keep these coming. Every time I read a bitter Canucks fan chiming in it makes my day.

As far as the hit, it was boarding and pretty blatant. If Lucic had stayed on the ice and acted hurt thats a possible major penality and at the very least it should have been 2. Badly missed call but Lucic shouldn't have "mounted" Weaver afterwards, the return cheap shot was enough.

Of course if this had happened to a Montreal player their fans would be calling 911 right now.

What the hell are you even talking about? You were asked for evidence of Lucic attacking someone after the whistle and posted that video. It's pretty clear Lucic didn't attack anyone in that video after the whistle.

It absolutely does matter. A play where someone was reckless and hurts someone deserves far less scorn than someone who obviously is trying to hurt another guy. Intent to injure is generally taken very seriously in sports.

Lucic gets cross checked from behind, gets up and gives it back. I don't see the problem

Debatable. There should still be supplemental discipline either way.

It happens, and what fan doesn't want calls to be fair, however I wouldn't justify our player retaliating - that's just bone headed.

Being reckless can easily be seen as attempt to injure, though I'm not gunna say that was what weaver was doing

Okay, let's approach this from a different angle.

Do you think Lucic would have gone after Weaver even if they called the initial board? It's pretty clear from the video that Lucic wasn't looking around and went straight after Weaver.

If the answer is yes, then all this other tangential crap about the McDonagh incident can end and no one has to get any "evidence" of Lucic going after the whistle (which, for the record, Lucic completely did in that video.) There were other options to respond to McDonagh's love taps other than punching flush in the face twice.

What should have the Bruins as a team done? Cleared the bench? Jumped the fans? Lucic already had retaliated. What else needs to be done?

As a Habs fans:

My heart says something like "OMG you f'ing neanderthal whining baby Lucic I hate you".

My brain says "Dangerous boarding by Weaver, selfish and possibly dangerous reaction by Lucic".

Show they have their teammate's back. Focus on Weaver, pound him (cleanly) into the boards or in open ice. Challenge him to fight repeatedly, make him want to hide on the bench and not step back onto the ice.

Lucic looked around after the Weaver hit.

You made a blanket statement that he was known for doing something. You were called out. You didn't supply any evidence.
All the rest of your argument is pointless hyperbole.
