If nothing else, I hope McNabb is on the receiving end of a Flying Dutchman Special from the Pirate himself.

If the Avs had any balls, they'd send Bordeleau down for that game to beat the living piss out of McNabb. I throughly enjoy watching him fight as he is one scary dude, that has laid some serious beating on people this year in the NHL.

Everytime Hishon is on the ice for that game they need to surround him with Maggio, Bordy, Malone, and Gaunce or Beaupre. McNabb would have no choice but to answer somebody.

He has a hell of a reach.

No argument here, but the more I read/hear about Sgarbossa, the more I think he's a crazy son of a ***** and is capable of dealing out punishment. I'd rather have a heavyweight doing the punching, but I doubt Bordy gets sent down--Sacco likes him too much.

Sgarbossa can be, but McNabb is way out of his league. Sgarbossa is Downie with the crazy toned down a bit. McNabb is 6'5" and can really hold his own in fights.

Yeah Sgarbossa seems to be a hot head, but what's funny is that Joey wasn't a saint exectly either when he was in the OHL, he was suspended for punching Toffoli (if I remember correctly) and he didn't shy away from slashing and cross checking players to get under their skin.

That might have been a big part of why McNabb targeted him. Hishon has a lot of sandpaper to his game.

I know it's all wishful thinking and not gonna happen anyway, but can Avs even send Bordeleau down without exposing him to waivers? Don't know if he's too old to be waiver ineligible, but I have a feeling some team would snag Patrick if we tried it.

I told Joey Hishon that he needed to upgrade his Twitter profile pic, and he did...I'm a boss.

As someone else mentioned it was Strome he sucker punched. But in general he was a very chippy player in his OHL days. Part of what made him so great. Not afraid to get dirty, engage with the opponent, go to the hard areas. Then just dangle the crap out of them.

Yup, Hishon was always feisty when I watched him play, good thing he didnt lose that. He reminds me of a Briere or a less crazy Fleury.

Guys ,
careful with your comments , it's against the rules to wish for injuries.
whether or not the other guy deserves it, it's still against the rule.

Nah, no relation. Peter McNab's only got one B in his name.

Unfortunately, I am unable to do so, as I don't know your handle. Shucks!

Maybe I missed something, but I didn't notice anyone wish for injury. I thought most people were just hoping for someone to fight McNabb, and since McNabb is a huge dude, they wished it could be Bordeleau.

Anyway, thanks for the reminder though. I don't think I remembered or realized that.

Does the rule extend to coaches?

so nice to see him back and playing well. stunted his development but man he'd be a huge boost if he can get back to his old ways and help the big club within the next 2 years. though something tells me he'll end up on the wing unless we move Stastny or ROR.
