I wasn't meaning to compare Troock and Elliot as fighters, and if I'm not mistaken the size difference wasn't as bad either. The similarity was that in both cases the smallest guy on the ice, a non-fighter, answered the bell to stick up for a teammate and took a beating while his bigger, tougher teammates stood by and watched. It's ballsy on the part of the little guy, but pathetic on the part of his teammates.
