1st pairing Ds don't help their team by spending 5 minutes in the box with a fourth line grinder......

Lets see Chara fight Laraque....

and then the 5 minutes afterwards when Kovalev goes hog wild over the bruins defence.

you mean the same 4th line grinder who was a monster against the habs in the playoffs? and the same 4th line grinder who is playing on the first line with savard and ryder?

komi threw a dirty hit at lucic and should have the balls do fight him

Komi's primary responsibility is to the team who pays his contract. Winning matters especially in the playoffs.

He'll fight when we are losing and need a spark... see Rangers comeback
when someone runs our goalie.... see Islanders game in 07....

But to fight some grinder cause he wants to go... doesn't make sense.

No matter how you slice it...

Komi's value on the ice to montreal > Lucic's value to Boston.

His Most important job is to win the game.

Why would any montreal player fight a bruin when they can just as easily walk away from them with 2 points and instantly forget about them? Injuries and penalties are too much of a risk against a scrub team that really doesnt put up much of a challenge.

Nah go make out with Lucy Ruins fans, habs have games to win.

Whoever knocks sauers head off will be in my good books for awhile now.

If Zdeno wants to make that decision its fine by me....

But I don't think its a good move for his team to do that.

They had some wicked physical battles last regular season and even more so in the playoffs. In my biased opinion, Komisarek has thrown some borderline hits, going for the knees, and Lucic has challenged him a few times, but Komisarek has refused. It would be a very good fight, Komisarek is much tougher than Bruins fans want to admit, but I still give Lucic the easy edge in the fisticuff department.

Wouldn't surprise me to see Komisarek win, but he's yet to man up any of the several times he's been challenged.

It would have to be a very special situation. In that game, the Bruins came out flat and were down 3-0 half way through the 1st. Chara was trying to spark them, you can see him gesture at the bench after the 1st "fight".

All in all though, you're bang on. Not a good trade off for the Bruins. Never mind the potential for injury, I don't want to see Chara in the box for 5 minutes.

Your arguing out of two sides of your mouth here.....

I used the Chara example specifically cause its exactly like the Komi one.

Chara has thrown elbows at some habs over the last couple years.... if Komi has to man up to Lucic; he should have to man up to Laraque this year.

We both know that unless their team needs a spark, it probably won't happen as it doesn't help their teams to have a first pairing d squaring off with a grinder.

Say whatever you want about what line Lucic is on; how much potential he has (debated elsewhere) etc.... the fact he is currently a 20 year old forward with a career high of under 10goals. We aren't talking a Bergeron or Savard here.

I'm not arguing at all. I never once said that Komisarek should be fighting Lucic. Lucic is playing first line, just as a point of fact, but Komisarek is much more valuable to the Habs than Lucic to the Bruins.

As a Bruins fan, I'd love to see him man up, but I certainly don't think he's obligated.

For a moderator, you're quite arguementative.

First off we don't hand our right to an opinion card when we become mods... sure not everyone will agree with our opinion... but I don't break the site rules... thats all that matters.

I'm sorry if i misread your post... I assumed by you saying Komi has yet to man up to Lucic that meant that you expected him to do it or you felt he was obligated.... I guess we're in agreement then. He won't do it unless the habs are down and need a spark.

Lets also remember Komi was an NCAA player and Lucic was a WHLer. The WHL penalty for fighting is a 5 min penalty. The NCAA has an auto one game suspension. I doubt Komi fought much at Michigan... and not nearly as much as Lucic in the WHL.

Lucic is the much more experienced fighter.

However that doesn't mean Komi isnt a tough player... anyone who is in the top 3 in both blocked shots and hits has to be pretty tough. And no I'm not saying you said he wasn't tough, just that i've read that opinion from other Bruins fans.

Komi shouldn't fight a guy like Lucic... the trade off isn't good for Montreal.. and the injury risk doesn't help. THats why we got BGL this summer, so Komi fights less.

Well I disagree. In my opinion, following the minimum requirements shouldn't be all that matters to a moderator, and I did read some animosity in your response.

I agree with most of your points, my only problem with Komisarek is that anyone who plays on the edge like he does, should be prepared to back it up. Lucic does, Chara does, and Komi is tough enough to do it as well. You got Laraque to protect the skill players like Kovalev and the Kostitsyns. Komisarek should be able to fight his own battles, and not find BGL to step in for him. Komi is plenty tough enough.

Komisarek-Lucic, although Komisarek probably won't ever man up to Lucic due to the "trade-off" (snicker), so in place of that, I'd love to see Chara-Komisarek, and watch Z absolutely annihilate that cheap shot artist/#2 defenseman.

But to even it out I'm gonna let Baldness choose a partner as well... MPB picks Sauer.
