It's more of the fact that WE as a TEAM don't let rookie punks like Couturier going around spearing one of our players, one of our All-Star players. Of course, after he spears Kovy he runs onto the bench like a fvcking bitch, but the next time he stepped on the ice, a message should have been sent. I can't stand that when we lose, we lose all intensity and let them rick roll us with cheapshots and hard hits on the boards.
I completely agree with this as well. The retarded staged fights are simply embarrassing and annoying. They are also hindering the growth of hockey as a whole and really difficult to explain to people who are hockey-curious but not quite hooked yet.
Oh please, I don't want to get into an argument with you, but how are these "staged fights"? Janssen is definitely more of an energy factor and "just in case" the Rags want to take the game to that physical aspect. Clarkson has evolved into a 20 goal scorer and Kovy can't spend more time in the box for KO'ing people. It was either Mills or Janssen having to step up so I'd rather see Janssen has more fighting experience.
