Yeah, I was pissed off when I read this from Boone's blog:

"Their tough guys, Michael Rupp and David Clarkson, tried to goad Mike Komisarek into fighting invitations that Komo, since l'Affaire Lucic, has wisely declined."

Man, that's why we need an enforcer. And we thought we got one until it turned out that Laraque is damaged goods. Stewart's hardly an enforcer, he fights, but he's more a grinder. Don't get me started on Kostopoulous's fighting skills (or lack thereof).

Major issues are still there that were present last season - the top forwards are soft. Centre is always an issue, and Plekanec is playing like absolute **** despite getting 18 minutes a game. Lang can put up points but he's real soft and doesn't use his size. Really reminded of the playoffs too, in that Koivu's line was the only line doing anything good out there.

Unfortunately, there always seems to be a few coasters in games.
I think that is why he moved Patches with Koivu and D'ags. He knows Koivu and D'ags were playing well including Stewart but Patches has more offense than Stewart so he made the switch. Carbo might of thought Stewart might be able to wake up our two Modanas.

I've watched the game twice and I could count numerous borderline obstruction plays, not blatant obstruction, but borderline. I guess it's their trademark...
Did notice this quite a bit, actually. I'm normally not too bothered by the officiating, or if I am, it's that both teams have had to suffer through a badly called game, but Jersey was playing pre-lockout hockey and Fraser called pre-lockout game. That the two happened at the same time may or may not be coincidence.

I probably deserve that since you edit more of my threads than you get to post yourself!
