Guy puts up good numbers and is pretty much willing to fight anything in front of him. I'd love to have him as a depth guy in Grand Rapids next year and possibly seeing if he has what it takes to come up to the big league within the next few years.

I still think that hit is hilarious. Granted, I wouldn't think so if it happened to Howard or Ozzie, but I'd love a guy that wasn't afraid to rock a goalie every now and then.

I'm of the thinking that if a goalie wants to sit on the puck behind the net like alot of them do and use their big pads to block out the players then they should be fair game for a check just like any other player on the team. Yeah they wear big pads and its hard for them to move out of the way so don't go behind the net to stop the puck and sit on it like a goose that layed an egg. But thats just me. My opinion.

i agree, but that would be a hard rule to change. it's ingrained in so many people that goalies are off limits, nobody would sit back and watch theirs get bowled over.

agreed, it was completely f***ed up that's for sure. But man, doing that took balls....

Say good night to all the Dman that go back to get the puck in your world.

Zero help for the defense is just a nightmare.

Goaltenders should be encouraged to play the puck in my opinion, it speeds up the game and they tend to mess up anyways.

Hitting a goaltender is just not fair, they have no way to protect themselves, it's like hitting a punching bag.

:lol:

Speaking from experience, it actually is fun as long as you don't mind having to defend yourself afterward.

As a former high school teammate of this poster, I can fully vouch for the legitimacy of his run-ins (literally) with opposing team's goalies, haha. The fans usually didn't appreciate it at the away games, to say the least.

This ones touchy, that was obviously a cheap shot and should not be condoned, but he brings a lot of intangibles that we could use and there is a style to his game to love... it's intriguing as well, because in this system, he could REALLY learn how to be a class player, while still playing on the edge between the whistles and it'd be nice to have someone not afraid to drop the mitts at the drop of a hat...

As long as he buys in to the system, could be a nice fit...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this one as well

Holland is a damn good GM. period.
