Thank you for clarity. I mean I said it looked a lot worse than it was as well.
I am just having a hard time reading a lot of these posts(not yours directly). We had Brule push Boychuks head into the boards the other night and people thougt this was worse than the greyhound Murder in western canada. Then we have our own guy deliver a cross check to the head and the other guy had it coming.
I don't think Lucic is a dirty player by any stretch and outside TT I believe he is our MVP this year(well along with Chara). I for one didnt have high hopes for Lucic being this good and I am the 1st to say I am completely happy I was wrong. The guy makes a difference each time he steps on the ice. He isnt a heavyweight fighter in my eyes in the weight class. He can hold his own against any class(including super heavy weight).
But when I read a guy like Callo start a thread about Brule and then think that Lucic's cross check was fine it just makes me laugh. Moore deserved it? If that play happened in the playoffs and we lost I would lose my mind. Trust me, each team we may face has a rat style player.
Lucic has won me over with his play this year. Not his fights. He needs to bring it every once in a while and I am fine with the Brewer fight.
Anyway, I am awaiting a flood of posts about me not knowing anything about hockey or that they deserved it, or that I am a Habs fan. All I ask is for people to look at it through non-bruin-tinted glasses once in a while. Guess I am in the wrong place for reasonable conversation.
I will leave this thought. Gillies smashes Clutterbuck(very good pest and much more known than Moore-after he hit a team mate). How does this differ from what Lucic did to Moore(with a weapon). I know they are totally different players, but pretend another site was ripping Lucic like Gillies has been ripped on here. Its like I read one thread and its get this garbage outta the league, then I read another about our hero for giving a guy something he deserved.
