You guys are lucky to have skilled, core-players such as Lucic and Chara, plus a couple of 4th line/3rd pairing tough guys in McQuaid and Thornton to back the rest of your team up, because the rest of them would be a bunch of fairies on any other team.
well let's see....the only guys who haven't been in a fight on our roster in the last two years are Seguin, Bergeron and Rask. Seguin will probably (and hopefully) never fight. it's just not who he is. Bergeron got in a fight in the postseason in 08-09 against gorges and beat him and Rask is our backup goaltender.

so how again are they phonies? because i am pretty sure there is not another team in the league that can say that. in fact in highly intense games like the one versus the canucks are best fighters don't even get to fight because the other team is afraid to fight them so instead they go after our second tier fighters like Horton, Campbell and Ference.

Even the great Don Cherry has said to never try to fight someone who's already been in one that period. Yet Thornton tries to fight a tired Weise and yet Weise is the coward? LOL hilarious hypocrisy.
That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

So if I'm a 4th line fighter and I beat the crap out of one of the Sedins or Kesler, I get a free pass for the rest of the period from fighting someone tougher like a Bieksa or Weise?

I love how he mentions the "Great Don Cherry". Don Cherry has no respect for guys who dangle the gloves and act as if the will drop them.

Not that what the great Don Cherry saids really matters.

Kevin Bieksa is one of the biggest spot pickers I've ever watched. That pounding of Stahlberg in the playoffs last year after Refree's tossed Scott was one of the most gutless things I've seen in a while.

I dislike both teams but I have respect for the way the Bruins stick up for each other.
Did you notice who the only guy who kept his gloves on was?

Thank you. Sensible post. People don't have to defend every single action done by someone on their team.

So wait, Horton has PCS?

If that's the case, why is he playing?

Weise was in a long fight. Thornton is a legit heavyweight who's dropped them with pretty much every heavyweight in the league over the last decade. Weise is not a great fighter to begin with. He was trying to draw a penalty.

He's not a sissy for not fighting Thornton while tired from a previous fight, honestly he'd have trouble fighting Thornton if Thornton had just finished competing in a triathlon.[/QUOTE]

Yes... yes he is.. don't talk **** and dangle gloves and then skate away like a *****.

Also that long fight was 13 GAME minutes before.. so about 20-25 minutes actual time. If you can't get over a fight that was 2-3 minutes long in 25 minutes that dude shouldn't be in the league

And you have burrows who puts his stick into someones throat and 6 guys who jump 1 and never mind the dudes on the bench who also grabbed in there.. If the nuck fans admitted that their team was as dirty as the bruins this whole argument would be over... but then again that doesn't do well for this website haha. The bruins players at times go over the line... so does the nucks.

I hope more refs do it so such a tactic isn't used.
Thats the one thing van massenhoven did right.. he was pretty much right in between the two before the fiasco.

As someone said before theres 3 to 4 guys on this team that don't fight... You saying bergie goes around and takes liberties with guys? maybe paille since he had a suspension... Rask? heard he always turtles in goalie fights right?... good work digging up that nugget, Scoops Mcgee.

This all over... He needs to cut the ****.

If the league is so insistent in keeping the instigator rule, maybe they should remove the prerequisite that it can only be assessed in conjunction with a fighting major.

Lapierre is one of the most gutless players in the game. Rarely drops the gloves and when he does, clutches the other player the entire game.

Sorry to tee off on your team Vancouver fans but the Canucks are a 1 team argument against banning fighting and towards removing the instigator rule.
haha I love when neutral parties come on all the b's and nucks fans craziness.

if you are referring to how people called daniel (?) out for letting Marchand jab him in the face i don't think anyone, even Bruins fans were saying he should fight him, they were just saying hit him back. doesn't mean he has to drop the gloves. even Seguin will give a guy a shove back or little whack when somebody hits him in a scrum after the whistle. it's about having respect for yourself, doesn't mean you have to fight to show that.

Exactly. You can stand up for your teammates in a scrum. Steve Yzerman was never really a fighter but could you see him do what Cherry showed Henrik run off when one started.
