The fascination is with Erskine. So what would of that done?
Bourqe elbowed Backstrom and lost pay because it, even if Erskine was in on the line up, why would he of been some sort of threat to tell Bourqe to not do that? Erskine shouldn't be on the ice with the first line.
Losing pay isnt good enough, we lost Backs for a lot longer then Bork was suspended, plus as drunksuper said it lets others know not to **** with us and creates sense of togetherness, you know like in a bar fight, you know that your boys got your back, no matter what.
