With regards to the McCarty beating on Lemieux and brawl that wasn't spur of the moment. That was beautiful premeditated revenge. Worked out great for the Red Wings and for people who hate rodents like Lemieux.
that's because of the sai bonus that he lasted so long with the Wings... if not for them, he would have been another Downey...

They even got outscored, and almost eliminated, by a battered Montreal club that wasn't supposed to be any good.

The real reason the Bruins won the Cup is Thomas and his .940 run through the playoffs, conjugated with their relatively deep forwards corps and the significant amount of luck required by any Cup win. Even that would not have been enough if the opposing goalies melted down.

There's a reason Tim Thomas won the Conn Smythe and not Milan Lucic.
Yes, yes, and yes.

'Tea Party' Thomas was the key component.

Much like Brad Stuart or Kronwall why should they fight ? Suspend those ****ers who jumps on player for clean hockey play... Eck of a ****.

Brad Stuart getting pounded by this thug Stewart was disguting. Those Bruins are disgusting. Viva el Emelin. Damnit.

Staubitz look's good for a fighter . Doesnt have a **** face like all those fighter. Ok sorry im really OT.
I agree, Emelin doesn't need to fight. As long as the habs have someone to back him up for the opposite team as we know they'll be angered of his enforcement hits

We had a "toughness" thread several months back where the anti-fighting crowd tried to project on the pro-fighting crowd that we thought fighters would protect against cheapshots.

It was said back then and I will say it again. Nothing will prevent cheapshots. I can say that again if I have to.

Fighting in the NHL used properly occured last night. Labrie ran Campoli. Staubitz broke Labrie's nose for the effort. Labrie "MAY" think twice about running Campoli or another Canadiens DMan again. Or, if he forgets, maybe another broken nose will remind him.

The Bruins played the Senators this week. Both teams have guys capable of dropping the gloves and kicking each others *****. Because of that, they played a hockey game without a fight. Imagine that, two of the toughest teams playing without a fight. And it was a relatively clean game.

That is the point of having a Staubitz on a team. To let the other team know that the rough stuff will be answered. Nothing more, nothing less.

We also have 2 many 2nd line centers...who could possibly want a surplus of 60 point forwards!

I guess Pacioretty's 25 goals so far don't count and so do Cole's 22.

You need to have a tough guy on your roster. If he can play hockey like Neil : Great ! If he can't too bad but you need him anyway. Staubitz is not bad like Laraque at playing. He can skate, he is fast enough to hit, will not put the team in trouble (last night his line was always in the offensive zone) and he will fight anyone (from middleweights to heavyweights)

Every players are very happy to have him. Me too !!

you dont get it? I know that Pac is at 25 and Cole at 22. What I'm Saying is we got enough skills to compete in this league. WE ARE NOT A TOP 3 draft team, this year was..bad but guess what, the future is great!


IMO this we sucked NOT BECAUSE THE LACK OF SKILLED FOWARDS (GEEZ CAMALERI WAS HERE!!!!)


this was a mix of bad luck, injuries to key players, small and inexperienced D, and lack of toughness

helps ensure a lottery pick, toughness, and a guy that will beat on the opposition if they touch us...of course he's a welcome addition. wish he 11 more of him to play every offensive position.

Great praise for Brad by his fellow teammates and it shows you how much it means to a team to have a guy like him on the roster. He's already made his own mates more enamoured of him then they are of softies like Palushaj and the rest I am sure.

He won't be resigned next year and the continous soft Habs will be present.

Calm yourself.
Why? What has Gomez done this year? He has 2 goals. He skates around a ton and gets loads of ice time and has 2 goals. We pay him to hopefully pot maybe 20 and add about another 40 assists. At minimum. He's a negative in every way.

Staubitz has already been more positive after ONE game!

Then all the soft ignorant Habs fans will rejoice at the idea of filling up their 4th line with more guys that skate around a ton not doing much of anything and looking scared as hell when the other team starts to rough them up.

Yea because befor staubitz or whatever his name is came, we were being pushed around every game. Seems like collective memory of habs fans is not passed the last "event" , in this case Malone.

You can call Staubitz a "whatever his name is" and dismiss his significance on this team. I would expect nothing less from people like you.

Looking at the big picture, your opinion is irrelevant and will forever remain that way. The only opinion that matters is from the NHL players on the Montreal Canadiens roster who have embraced Brad Staubitz for what he did against the Bolts.

Sorry to burst your bubble.

To the TampaHabsFan, if we still have Gauthier as the GM, then yes, we will revert back to the softest team in the League where anything goes against the players without anyone standing up. However, if we get a new GM, look for players like Staubitz in the lineup. Montreal is one of the few hockey teams in the NHL that has an aversion to having tough players on the team. Hopefully that changes.

Funniest part about this, is someone is going to look back at this in the future, and see both Laraque and Staubitz on the books at the same time, lol.

I wonder if Laraque sent a fax to Staubitz that he should go ask Labrie to fight.
