In response to jmwalters' comment:
Whatever the outcome during the game, Lucic is not going to forget about it. It took him over 2 years to get komisarek remember.
Good luck kid and give your thanks to the hockey gods that you play in a diiferent conference....
This was a run of the mill hockey play.
I'm really getting done with all of the BS that surrounds making everything more than just a game of hockey. Lucic won't forget what? This started and ended.
Remember a couple of years ago when Karl Alzner made the crybaby motion towards Lucic in the playoffs? Everyone was all about "Oh wait until next year when Lucic gets him." Never happened.
A guy makes a statement in the press and people go bananas about "bulletin board material". It's just a game. It's just another game. It's just another player. It's just another play.
One team beats another and the next game is a revenge game. It's all about payback.
One good team plays another good team. It's a "statement game". Gotta make a statement with this on to let the league know...
How much of any of this ever matters?
This isn't directed at you, JM. I'm happy that you're back and I think you're great to chat with.
This is just an overall rant sparked by something you said.
