I'm getting real sick of people saying "yeah, Lucic is good but he doesn't fight anymore" (thick Boston accent).
I'm glad Lucic stood up for himself vs Vandameer, but I was holding breath when he's shaking his hand and showing Marchand in the box last night.
Lucic's role is not the same as when he was trying to break into the League as a 18yr old trying to prove himself ready to play in the NHL.
He scores now. He is your leading scorer. He can play physical without fighting.
Why would you want him off the ice for atleast 5 minutes? Or worse hurt like Chris Stewart with a broken hand out for 3 months for punching some jabroni in the head.
Just stop, there are others who can fill this role.
