In Response to Re: Gilbert Brule
No4, March got a penalty on his spear last night if memory serves me correct. Thats where I really got a bad taste in my mouth. I have always hated that kinda garbage. No suspension. To me thats like spitting in someones face. I give Cogliano (non fighter) full marks for what he did. Team mate run into the boards from behind. Cogliano is no monster. 2" difference and same weight. Yes a fight isnt over till they are skating away. But everyone on here was all over PK for jumping the gun on Lupol. There is a code in terms of fighting and had JV got Lucic down and drilled him, JV would be the biggest goon ever. Brule's play was garbage. I just hate when we turn the homer do no wrong aspect of the opinions when it comes to cheap plays by our own team.

March got a holding the stick penalty when he ripped the stick out of ??? hands after his has been batted out of his, stupid retaliatory penalty but the ref let the other shiite go. He got a slashing penalty more retaliation but I never seen the spear, more teet for tat in a sparring sesion where the ref gave it to March. I have no problem with March's shenannigans as if you watch the whole game he takes a lot of abuse during the play, as long as he gives it back during the play he will stay out of the box, he has to be mindful of this and not get caught taking stupid retaliatory penalties.
Someone was standing on the scales or March was fully clothed as no way are he and Cog the same in stature. Cog is no monster, but realistically DK is a monster beside March.
The fighting code is a pile of bull setup for the staged fights. In a fight of passion when someone targets you and follows you around, you don't letup until they have you dragged to the box. The Luc beatdown on Komi was of this type, if you can or are strong enough you haul them up, lean them against the boards and wail away. In the good old days the fight was one by whomever could pull the other's jersey over their heads and would then wail away. Fighting code in hockey, what a hateful pile of shiite. After a great brawl between 2 heavyweights they slap each other on the shoulder, yeah it seems ok at the time but why did they ev en bother to drop them.
March was supposed to standup and take it like a punching doll, because that was what it was going to be, no March got leverage tipped Cogl over and went to get a few shots of his own back. They were both on the ice and both still trying to fight, there was nothing dirty about that.
I missed the spear never seen it, it in no way could have been serious or Van would have sent the tape and/or the league would have suspended him any way.
March is a little guy fighting for space, and like all little guys have to use their sticks to gain that space, they just don't have the size. The refs give them a "little" leeway or else they have to call a lot more of thecalls going the other way such as interference holding boarding etc that the bigger D doles out. This is all shiite that has been going down all the years I have been watching, I don't condone the stickwork nor do I like it, but it has always been there and always will be.
If March is going back to the tendencies that got him in trouble in the minors, he is playing on a line with 2 fellows that should be able to correct him before he turns to the path of Avery and Cooke, in Berg and Rec. He needs to play that fine line, it is up to Berg Rec and Cj to reign him in, when need be.
