We had a thread Moen vs Lucic, but I think Neilson is our middleweight for Lucy! Now I don't think he's going to get permanent spot in the team, BUT this guy as to be called up against toronto, boston and philly. I have seen quite a few fights from this guy, and by the way he's from fredericton about an hour and half from where i live, and this guy can do his job. At least he can follow the play, doesn't send faxes for invites, will fight anybody and i mean anybody. Unlike the so called ONE TO BEAT that we have!!! Put Laraque's sorry *ss on waivers!!!
Honestly I like him because of the energy he brings, but more importantly because he is dispensable. Eventually, he'll get hurt in a fight and I'll just shrug my shoulders and move on. I watched his youtube fights from last year and if he keeps it up he will get hurt.
Neilson and Stewart! We can expect lots of momentum-turning action tonight! Both have to prove themselves worthy of being on the 4th line. If Neilson can show that he can play physical and don't made mistakes in his zone, I'm sure he could replaced Stewart that kinda lost, since his first game in TO last year, his fire.
Neilson-Metropolit-Laraque should be our fourth line in the regular season.
Stewart seems to not understand his role... He want to play hockey more than get under people skin like Nielson!!
Neilson only went and fought heavyweights, he didn't stand up for his teammates in the fights they were mainly just staged fights. I liked what he did last night but this is ridiculous that people think he's better than Stewart right now. Stewart is a great forechecker, has good speed and he can throw em with middleweights and can leave the bigger guys for Laraque.
