    Too bad his great effort got wasted but definitely a good sign going forward.

    I liked his game aside from the useless staged fight vs a goon.

    I'm guessing the fight was his way of saying "hello" to the team.

    i didn't have a problem with the fight, and im surprised so many people did...weren't we talking a few weeks ago about getting some toughness in there, letting teams know we wouldn't accept blatant headshots to mojo (for example) going forward? and really- getting into a fight early in your first game with your new etam? is there a better way to say 'i'm buying in, and this is my team now'?

    Haley asked him to go to try to entertain their fans.

    It was senseless from a NJD perspective.

    Injury risk aside it had no value at the time at all .

    i'd rather someone drop the mitts than have haley think he can run at our stars.

    we were already getting a reputation for letting people run all over us, so we need to start letting the league know we're gonna bite back, ESPECIALLY with the playoff race getting as tight as it is, this close to the end of the season

    it was senseless in terms of the scoreboard, but not senseless from a team perspective. if you asked the other guys in the room after the game whether they felt it was senseless or not, i think you'd be hard pressed to find one guy who said it was. just my opinion

    if he was sticking up for a teammate that's one thing but im not sure how much a staged fight like that inspires the team. but it's not a big deal either way i just didn't really see the point of it

    It's dumb.

    Maroon actually has skill, the Florida goon is just a plug.

    The Florida goon DID his job. He took a Devil with skill off the ice for nearly 10% of the hockey game.

    Bingo .

    Risk heavily outweighed reward.

    He breaks his hand there and then what.

    His buddy Haley asked him to fight because he has no other value.

    Maroon has a lot of value to us.

    Haley shouldn't even be in the NHL.

    Can't believe some teams are still playing these goons, who have just gone the way of the dinosaur over the last half decade.

    Pete and the Sharks were playing Haley a bunch last year.

    Admittedly I was skeptical at the deal, the price seemed fair and all, but it almost felt redundant at the deadline. I felt Boyle, Woods, Noesen and Zajac had that jam up front, we know he’s not a go to sniper and we have plenty of wingers.

    However when it came to Maroon’s debute, to me, he jumped fully in and is already committed to what we’ve got going and he wants to contribute any way he possibly can. I like that

    Haley is a fast skater, that is why he is still sticking in the league. The days of PL3 Barch Boulton and my 'favorite' Andrew Peters are gone.

    I was pretty iffy on Maroon, but I realized he brings something we really need - good boardwork. It was something I was hoping Boyle would bring, but kind of knew he didn't really.

    I'm more iffy on Grabner just because of the higher cost to acquire him, but given the job Shero has done so far I have to trust him on this one and hope for the best.

    I trust Shero more on trades than free agent signings, but there's also always going to be the occasional Beau Bennetts.

    That is the only possible explanation I could think of while watching.

    Still think it was stupid.

    Not a big fan of fights that have no context in the game but I do get this one. He was doing this for the long-term understanding of his teammates. I can live with that.

    I was also impressed with how he looked along the boards. His holdup play is pretty good and I think in a playoff series he can really add something. I enjoyed when he mixed it up in front of the net and none of the defensemen bothered to push him after the whistle.

    His puck possession down low is fantastic, I thought he was going to kill the final 5 minutes by himself.
