So he can hold on to McGrattan for dear life and play 5 minutes a game and he is more useful than Moen...brilliant!

The hockey knowledge of some of our fans is truly frightening!

How much did that fight play into the final result of the game?

I didn't like the Moen fight much, habs ended up getting sucked into bruins game for the 2nd period because of it.

This.

I love that they showed "Bordy" vs Mcgratton as an example because the avs actually lost that game

Enough to award him an impressive near-7 minutes of icetime? Looks like it was a show fight 2 minutes into the game.

So it's because of the Moen fight that Markov and Emelin had a horrible 2nd period?

Bingo ! Can't believe there's 3 threads on this subject... theses goons don't even play in the playoffs... they are their to satisfy certain types of fans for whom the game of hockey isn't satisfying enough...

Hold on for dear life???

You did see that Mcgrattan was cut and bleeding like crazy after the fight was over, right?

I mean, I understand that Bordeleau stopped fighting, but it's not like he did it because he lost or was hurt, he was simply tired and gassed out. I don't expect for everyone to give bordeleau a clear win on that fight, but at least a draw for the amount of damage he inflicted or maybe a slight edge to McGrattan.

However, I do agree that he is less useful than Moen, but we can have both on the roster, they aren't mutually exclusive.

I'd like to take some HFBoards members, put them on skates against the Bruins for two games. One without Prust or other players who can fight, and one with a few guys who can. THEN, they can come to me and tell me when they felt more comfortable...

You know, it really helps to know something of the history of hockey, and of the Habs, before you discuss these things. Take a look at the 75-76 Canadiens, one of the greatest teams of all time. Lafleur, Lemaire, Robinson...did they have a tough guy? An enforcer. Well, Doug Risebrough got a lot of penalty minutes -- 180 that year in 80 games -- but he was there as a tough two way player , the last thing in the world like an enforcer. No one fooled around with Pierre Bouchard -- but he had 50 penalty minutes all year long, and policeman or enforcer was not a word would have used for him. Certainly none of the top six forwards could have won a fight in a phone booth. But , see, that team was soft and easily pushed around...well, no: they defeated, easily, the toughest, meanest, fight-happy hockey team that had ever been seen, the Broad Street Bullies. Were those Habs physical? You bet: Larry Robinson laid a perfectly clean hip check on Gary Dornhoffer in the final that still rings. But they somehow managed to be one of the finest hockey teams of all time without a tough guy or an enforcer or a designated fighter. And that's the heritage.

Marc Bergevin will never sign, claim one off waivers, or trade for a GOON or
a HEAVYWEIGHT.

How about as an example that Calgary won!? Haha. I've been impressed with Bordy but Grats is the man. Either one of these guys would be great. Throw in Carkner as the 7th D and we 're set.

Why not? Armstrong, White and Moen aren't doin diddly. Sure i'd rather have guys like Tinordi in there on the back end. But you just know not everyone is gonna stay healthy.

Har Har! Master of debating skills.


Oh and if you manage to organize this, PM me, ill give you my info, would love to have a chance to go skate with bruins players, and laugh about how this guy on the interwebs organized the whole event because he couldn't express himself properly.

Robinson changed the 1976 series when a beat Dave Schultz in the brawl against the Flyers.

Now if only our current line-up hasd a player like Robinson to take on Chara and Lucic

If Bordy doesn't re-up with the Avs before July 1st, he will be a Hab. He seems to fit within the culture that MB wants. Home grown talent is a huge plus. If we can get him up to 7 useful minutes, we've got a keeper.
