In response to shuperman's comment:
Never suspended and has fought every tough guy of his era. go watch his 150 plus fights and tell me he picks spots and jumps people. The drury hit today is a suspension but then it was clean. Sure he crosses the line bc hes supposed to. He isnt here to be a top 6. He knows what keeps the pay cheques coming. He went after cooke immediately the other night. Did our clown do anything? He went after orr and beat him after he ran one of his team mates. How is this picking spots and jumping people. I cant list all the legit guys hes fought bc there is 150 plus fights.
I have seen all his fights (I am a regular on hockeyfights.com) and yes he does jump people on occasion. Just off the top of my head, he jumped an unsuspecting Luke Schenn (a heavy?) last season alone. And just because he has never been suspended does not make him clean. Half the people on the list on NAS' dirtbag thread were not suspended by the league either.
ST may be a clown but he does not elbow people in the face (Andrew Macdonald clip), go down when hit like he has been shot and look at the ref (Ovie clip) or jump non-fighters (Schenn). The proof is in the links I provided.
On occasion everyone does if they fight a lot. Lucic is the king of jumping guys off the start. But if you have seen all his fights you know how many true nhl heavies hes gone with. Domi on numerous occasions, simon, orr, shelley, mccarthy, chara, lucic etc etc etc.
hes had a very good career. Lucic has played 1/3 the games as neil and has been suspended and reviewed for dangerous hits. He fights guys that arent in his class more then he fights heavies. So is lucic a dirty guy who picks his spots?
To say neil picks his spots is complete bunk. Again i challenge anyone on here to find me a current heavy weight who have the resume Neil has.
ST has never elbowed anyone? Why. Bc he cant catch anyone. He did nothing in a game against the leafs where orr was running around. Whats he here for. To ask questions of Neil? Hes a joke. Savard sure appreciates him fighting cooke 2 months later.
