If it does happen (getting into a fistacuffs), George can take care of himself. If it tends to escalate, he knew I had his back. That is how we worked all last season and I think it went well.
There were SEVERAL occasions last year when there would be a scrum and Stekel kept his nose clean. The instance in Hartford with Garth Murray comes to mind. Let's hope he gets a mean streak and learns to use his size a bit better.
