I say we go out and get a konopka type player. I think just one guy like that would do a hell of a lot for Abby and ericsson because he actually knows what he's doing. Than Abby and Ericsson wouldn't feel like they hAve to do all the dirty work.
I don't really think we need to make a trade per say but I agree with this idea completely. For the most part I'm happy with our lineup but feel we are just missing the hammer. A player like Konopka or Prust would do wonders for our team toughness.
So now boarding is a "clear example" of a hit to the head? So Crosby's not only a whiner, he's an idiot as well. I wouldn't put it past Campbell to still suspend Steckel. Meanwhile, no suspension for Kostopolous yet?
No s***. Where are all the Crosby defenders now? He's a ***** who thinks he should be untouchable, plain and simple.
What happened when Jody Shelley boarded McQuaid earlier this year, was he taken out in an ambulance? No, the officials walked him away, no one did a thing to him. Your over generalizations while comical are not true!
What happened after Cooke cleaned Savard's clock, or when Bergeroen was boarded?
Would I have liked to see dents put into TK's face by a guy like Mac, sure, but that does not add validation to your statement.
Just another chance for the enforcer crowd to jump up and scream:
"See, what did we tell you!"
And your examples are just more chances for the non-enforcer crowd to say "See, what did we tell you." There are examples on both sides. I prefer the beatdown, and in this case, don't stop punching just because Kostopoulos may fall to the ice.
