DJ King

With Orr out, likely for the year, and teams taking liberties on players Burke might put in a claim.

Rosey has done well but is a middleweight.

i hate the myth that people take liberties if you dont have a heavyweight. like that stops on the fly hits from happening ever. all goons do is fight other goons in pre agreed upon fights. we have plenty of tough players who can step in and throw bombs if someone cheapshots a player. Komisarek, Phaneuf, Brown, Rosehill, Schenn, Aulie, Armstrong, Macarthur, Lupul all can fight if they have to , we dont need to waste another roster spot on a heavyweight. dj king is garbage.

We need one bad. Why the **** didnt somebody grab Kane and beat his face to a pulp? *******. Get King, Belak and another fighter. I dont care about winning games, I want to rumble in the alley.

So would DJ King be any more useless than Sjostrom tonight?

I am all for not wasting roster spots, but Sjostrum is a wasted roster spot. At least DJKing wouldn't be dancing around pretending to be upset after the whistle...someone would have gotten an adjustment out there.

Ever since Orr has been gone, it has showed that we don't need a fighter. I do miss Orr though

AS much as I miss Orr, there is no apparent reason for a fighter.

No need. Rosehill is good enough.

We need Orr back. When the Sheriff's in town, **** goes down.

Makes a fair bit of sense. Rosehill has played well, but they problably want him in the AHL. It's the same reason why for practical reasons, Burke must add at least 1 defenceman tommorow (even if it's just a #7 guy).

With the weekend we just had, being a buyer is a colossal mistake.

Rosehill's not a middleweight. He's a heavyweight. Yeah he'll struggle against the true top fighters in the league, but he'll fight anyone.

I disagree. Players definitely think twice about running around if there's a heavyweight in the lineup. I know when I played guys on the bench would talk about that stuff. We all knew who the other teams tough guy was and when he was on the ice.

Of course it affects how the other team plays. How could it not?

Adding at least a #7 defenceman has nothing to do with us being a buyer or not. It has everything to do with getting a roster player in case one of our 6 goes down, so we don't have to use one of our 2 callups from the AHL (because Aulie & Reimer will likely account for the first 2 of 4).

Leafs need Burke to focus on finding skilled talent....I agree with you..how many cementheads does a team need. This isn't 1976....the Bee Gees aren't coming back and neither is Studio 54.....How about getting some top line talent?

From the CBC's 5th Estate "The Code"


Fighting in Hockey: A Timeline
1875 – Legend has it that the first organized indoor hockey game ended in a fight between the players and a group of figure skaters who wanted to take over the ice.

1922 – The NHL introduced Rule 56 to formally regulate fighting. Players who engaged in “fisticuffs”, as it was called in the official rulebook, were given a five minute major penalty. This differed greatly from amateur and collegiate leagues, where players were ejected from the game if they fought.

1971 – The NHL created the “Third Man In” rule in an attempt to cut down on the number of bench clearing brawls. Under the rule, the first player who joins a fight already in progress is ejected from the game.

1972 – The Philadelphia Flyers evolve from being a losing expansion team into the intimidating Broad Street Bullies. The team fought its way to the Stanley Cup playoffs, winning the Cup in 1974 and 1975.

January 4, 1987 – During the final game of the 1987 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, a bench-clearing brawl broke out between Canada and the Soviet Union in Piestany, Czechoslovakia. Officials turned off the arena lights in an attempt to control the situation. Both nations were disqualified from the championship.

1992 - The NHL brings in the controversial “Instigator Rule.” Under this rule, additional penalties are given to the player who starts the fight.

March 26, 1997 – A series of fights break out between Detroit Red Wings and the Colarado Avalanche and it quickly turns in to an all-out brawl. Patches of blood on the ice were visible before the ice was resurfaced by the zamboni. The infamous brawl is now often referred to as “Bloody Wednesday.” The Red Wings went on to win the first of two consecutive Stanley Cups.

February 21, 2000 – Boston Bruins’ Marty McSorley swings his stick and hits Vancouver’s Donald Brashear in the neck. Brashear’s helmet flew off and he hit his head on the ice as he fell, rendering him unconscious. McSorley would later be charged with assault and never play in the NHL again. Brashear later recovered and currently plays for the Washington Capitals.

March 5, 2004 – Five consecutive brawls break out during the closing minutes of a Philadelphia Flyers and Ottawa Senators game. 419 penalty minutes were handed out – an NHL record.

March 8, 2004 – With Colorado leading 8-2 late in the third period, Todd Bertuzzi tries to start a fight with Vancouver’s Steve Moore. Bertuzzi grabbed Moore’s jersey and sucker punched him in the back of the head. Moore suffered three broken vertebrae and would never play in the NHL again.

December 12, 2008 – Don Sanderson, of the Whitby Dunlops, is involved in a fight with a player from the Brantford Blast. Sanderson was rushed to hospital after he hit his unprotected head on the ice. He would remain in a coma for three weeks.

January 2, 2009 – Don Sanderson passes away.

The Leafs did have a DJ Smith and a Derek King years ago.

DJ was drafted by St Lou and spent his entire career there until his trade to Washington this summer.
