In response to shuperman's comment:
I want a fight log of marchand. He backs nothing up.
Emelin has a metal plate in his head and physically cant fight. Nor should he have to after a clean hit.
C'mon Sally. You're getting particularly soft in your Captain Contrarian stance this time. Emelin "can't" fight because there's a risk of injury?
Maybe Lucic "can't" get lowbridged across the knees because of risk of injury.
When you throw hits that have a high probability of causing injury, it's perfectly logical that opposing players might bring that risk of injury back to you, in a big way. Fair game. Accountability in hockey.
shupe and the Monreal reactionaries can gasp and cry foul and call 911 all they want, but expecting Lucic and the Bruins to treat Emelin differently than everyone else, because of prior injuries, is insane.
I just can just see Julien in the lockerroom before the game:
"Okay guys, before we take the ice let's do a quick review of Montreal's medical history so we don't risk hurting anybody. Emelin doesn't like to fight, so even if he takes runs at guys, we can't throw a punch at him. Gionta had his appendiix out as a kid, so no shots to the mid-section on him. Anything else Dr. shupe? Now go get 'em!"
Yes there is a risk of injury. He has a metal plate in his head. Similar to the one im trying to get through with you. Ive seen people cry foul over this hit. It was a beauty. Rob Blake rarely had to fight. Go watch his hits. His rump crushed people.
Would you be ok with a heavy fisted fighter grabbing bergie and crushing his brain a bit more then it already has been if he laid someone out with a clean hit Or would you cry that he has concussion issues. What was you stance when Big George was trying to fight our very own Lucic and he skated away everytime? Bc im pretty sure thats what brought that on. Heavy hits and george wanted him to fight bc of it. Big George and montreal looked stupid. Colton Orr was running around like a fool last year and i dont remember Chara skating up to him.
Its funny i notice ST was the toughest man in the league that night. Havent seen that in a while. Why? No one to take him to task on it.
The Chara hit on Max was just a bad luck hockey play gone wrong. yemelin hit on lucic was a beauty. Lucic looks like a whiney kid complaining. Yemelin has received somewhat questionable thunderous hits from lucic and always comes back for more. Ive seen many a dman like that come and go through the league and they dont have to fight. kronwall is probably the best recent example.
So sure, they can throw a punch at him...But they will be in the box. If he doesnt like to be hit stop skating around like hes untouchable.
