Why does Carkner insist on going after guys who fight once or twice a year? We all know he's tough, but he loses a little respect in my eyes by bullying non-tough guys who do nothing but grind for the puck along the boards....I didn't see anything that could have set him off- Hall had his stick up, but that was more about the way the contact unfolded- It wasn't anything dirty or even questionable IMO. Read GreatMurray's post- sums it up beautifully, even includes stats. Nice job.
Carkner controlled this and Hall wanted no part of him....Which IMO is sensable :)
That said He shouldnt have rubbed the Big boy as he did cause..... Rubbing is Racin???? :)
]O well I just wanted to say that......Not the most appropriate time to use the phrase but what the hell eh
