He's a nuclear deterrent and should dress in less than 15 games this year. A feel good story as he didn't make the NHL until he was 28 years old, you just have to admire a guy chasing the dream like that. I certainly wouldn't want to mess with him as he knows his role and does whatever it takes to defend his teammates.
This was my favorite fight when he first made the Oilers club:
You'll notice at the 31 second mark of the video that he seamlessly changes his pummeling of Vandermeer from lefts to rights like a jedi master. In other fights, he had no qualms about going to the body if his opponent had his face covered.
Excellent when we're mathematically eliminated with 18 games remaing we can dress Mac-Rosehill-Orr.My god the damage would be incredible.
We don't have Rosehill anymore.
I think a MacIntyre-Komarov-Orr line would be awesome if we're out of the hunt. Have Komarov piss off everyone on the ice, then Orr and MacIntyre can take care of anyone that has a problem with it
Also, I recall a couple years ago when we were playing Edmonton that Orr wanted nothing to do with MacIntyre, then proceeded to pummel Stortini. I think that speaks volumes about how terrifying MacIntyre is. Dudes like John Scott big.
You think Lucic is gonna fight him?
What's he gonna do, skate on the ice for 5 mins chasing him around yapping? ...
No you run a short bench and put him on every once in awhile against the other teams 4th line and he pesters the non-tough guy. Then the tough guy comes over and gets a penalty or they both do. This ain't rocket science.
