Every now and then he lets the goons know that he can still hurt them and this is the way it should be.
My point is, when he does, it is usually middle-weights. But that is enough talk about lucic, I hate the Bruins obsession here. Lucic is a good fighter, but he gets overrated at times over here.

And even if we would like to believe he is indeed picking his spots, he didn't back down from a lot of players not named George Laraque or any other totally unuseful goon....And in the end, if those goons weren't unable to make him drop it or just start swinging 'cause they were so irritated by his behaviour, well it's their problem. Somehow, how are the Bruins not entitled to any "code" but the rest of the league is? Pure BS. Or what was Colton Orr's code against Bourque? You want to take Lucic out? You are really scared of the instigating penalty on a 82-game season? Somebody should have went after him and make him drop those gloves. And I'm blaming more the Laraque of this world than Lucic himself.

Now, for Big Mac...I hope people solely expect a great 1st round hockey player. If the fights comes in and he incredibly becomes a Lucic, we'll praise the gods. But as of now, hockey is fine with me. And he too, will be able to pick his spots. But for that, he needs to become a top 6 player. Work ahead.
You sir.........are absolutely correct!

Not that my stamp of approval was being solicited or was required in any way.

McCarron wants to face Lucic in pre-season, i hope Therrien doesn't put him on the ice or at least someone in the org should tell him he's gonna get killed.

This is ridiculous. This exactly why this keeps getting brought up, because he keeps talking about Lucic.

The definition of raw prospect. This kid is beyond intriguing.

Read the article. He doesn't actually say anything about lucic. The article just refers back to what he said at the draft. They're putting words in his mouth to get hits.

If he did say that it's not to big of a deal. Odds are mccarron will fall down are lose his balance before too much damage is done . I like him but he is a aweful fighter right now not saying he always will be aweful but he isn't great right now.

lol what a bunch of *******s. There was an article on TSN saying that Lucic is aware of everything going on in the NHL with scouting reports of every players. He's definitely aware of Mccarron's false quote now. They surely won't have to explain their articles to Lucic like Mccarron will have to, with his fists probably. Cowards.

Regardless I think Lucic is mature enough now to know that it's just an excited young kid trying to make a name for himself and trying to make it into the league, I doubt he would pummel an 18 year old for comments made during his first rookie camp

I went to get the article after Michel Villeneuve said that Mike talked about Lucic again in the dressing room. It's on CKAC.com. I believe it's Martin McGuirre who reported it.

For some reason I thought he lost that fight a lot worse than he did. Haven't watched it since. He was super gassed at the end of a shift, good scrap though.

'Journalists' keep asking him about Lucic, that's why he talks about him. Those ****ing parasites shouldn't be allowed to talk to him yet...

This is Montreal. We have 100 journalists specialists in this team who HAD to go to Mike and say..."Whenever there's a Lucic question....you say....Lucic is a model and I hope that one day I'm as good as he is. PERIOD!!!! Yes, Montreal press do what they can to take words and twist....BUT DON'T SAY THOSE WORDS!!!!! Not faulting Big Mac as he's young but it's incredible that after what he said before, that nobody in this organization didn't prepare him more.....Honestly, I hope to God that McCarron sees Boston in 2-3 years. If Therrien puts McCarron against Boston, he's even dumber than I thought he was....

Journalists keep asking Guy Lafleur for his comments 'cause Lafleur loves to talk. Journalists keeps asking Brian Burke comments 'cause Burke loves to talk. Well Montreal Journalists keeps asking McCarron's comments about Lucic 'cause McCarron gives them stuff. He needs to stop. Donald Beauchamp needs to wake the **** up, realize that hockey has started and make him learn a few things.

OK, let's make things clear here, because it's getting overboard.

McCarron talked twice about Lucic. First, he said he was modelling his game after him. Then, when someone made him realize he could face him eventually, he said he would let him know he's there.

He said that just a few seconds after being drafted. Easy on the kid.

McCarron didn't talk about Lucic at the present camp. He said he hopes to play a preseason game. Then, a journalist told it it could be against Boston. He answered "I'd love it".

No one named Lucic.

So people please calm down. Of course, the organization has talked to him and they surely didn't like his answer on draft day. And of course, Therrien won't dress him against Boston. He's not dumb.

Sounds as though some fans want a heavyweight champion. That's not one of my priorities and I don't want McCarron getting hurt to satisfy the juveniles' vicarious blood lust. Let him develop.

Yeah but to be fair the media are baiting him. I find that despicable on their part but what else is new about sport journalists.
