As far as him fighting goes, he's not really a Boll/Dorsett 20 fights a season player, and there's no one on the Lighting worth fighting anyway. I think he's a poor man's Lucic honestly.
Sestito is a poor man's Lucic? Are you drunk?
He's a 4th line scrub who can't fight well at all, he can't score, he can't skate, and he's scratched 8 games out of 10.
Where in the world do you even think he can even remotely compare to Lucic, even in a poor man's version?
You guy's kill me, you really do. Schenn and Vinny had a scrap, no big deal, but you see what the scrap did for TB, it fired up the whole team, the whole arena, except for those guys in orange and white who proceeded to sh1t the bed and lose 5-1. Simmonds got tossed because he was trying to do what Vinny did and failed, the Lightning, not Lighting, wouldn't bite and give the momentum back, it's the SMART move but I can understand you not getting that, I realize it can be a complicated concept.
I have been a Flyers fan for a long, long time and don't remember seeing them look so incredibly inept in almost every way. I said it last year, that stupid coach needs to get run out of town and maybe it will turn around, there is a lot of wasted talent there.
Oh well, whatever.
