Um, do you know what happened to Draper as a result of that hit? Half his facial bones were fractured -- including his jaw.

Lemieux was worse. He drove Chris Draper's face into the boards, almost ending his career. Lemieux was a slime, just like Lucic is. See for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eCHxytJ1LM

Lemieux was a much better hockey player than Lucic to be sure. But, like Lucic, he was a dirtbag as a human being. It informs us of the difference between Boston and Montreal fans: Lemieux was booed out of Montreal for his antics, whereas Bruins' fans praise Lucic as a "great player and human being."

It is said the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, and Lucic has done so. I am, however, unsure what cure there is for a coward. I recall some posters awhile ago saying the Habs would take Lucic in a second. I totally and completely disagree. The Habs are too respectable to have a player like Lucic. The Habs had a player like Lucic once -- a dirty coward -- and his name was Claude Lemieux. Pat Burns had this puke sent packing. The Habs would do the same with Lucic had they the misfortune of drafting him.

This isn't an ethics class, so the opprobrium you received was, in my view, misplaced. The Habs have in the past meted out natural justice. I remember when Ken Linseman played for the Bruins. He was a much smaller version of Lucic, and an even dirtier player. One game Mats Naslund, as he neared Linseman on the ice, stuck the butt end of his stick about five inches out of his glove. Just as Linseman passed, Naslund slammed his stick into Linseman's mouth, shattering all his front teeth. Naslund received a four-minute major, the Bruins did not score on the ensuing powerplay, and Linseman was never the same player again. I am hoping someone does the same to Lucic soon. If there are some posters here who find this unnerving, that is their problem.

That is a good post UCe. I consider neither Chara nor Lucic tough in the normal sense of the word. Chara likes to slam players' heads on the ice, and Lucic is simply a rat-prick scumbag piece of $hit as a human being. Since I know the NHL will not discipline Lucic for his stickwork, I can only hope to God that some player maims that slime bag permanently. It's bound to happen, and I'll be cheering vociferously when Lucic is carted off the ice.

Subban played his best game in months -- and the timing for a rebound is perfect. He was splendid: no risky passes, no ass-flying now-I'm-out-of-position hip checks, cool and calm defence, and smart offensive play. The Habs need that PK to go deep into the playoffs.

I'm not a "hockey expert" or a "ice hockey genius," but something tells me loading up a national team with Leafs and Senators is the surest way to fourth place. At least Phil Kessel is ineligible to play for Team Canada -- and thank God for that!

Subban isn't going anywhere. Bergevin isn't Rejean Houle (or Bob Gainey for that matter re: Ryan McDonough) -- he knows the future of this team's defence corps is PK Subban.

Yes, seriously. That is no less than Chara slamming a player's head into a stanchion. I would applaud whoever did that to Chara or Lucic.
