    They have weapons in their hands?
    No? Quelle surprise!

    And if confined spaces don't mean anything I guess field and box lacrosse are exactly the same, eh?

    the players can go to the bench anytime they want. And who the hell cares if they have weapons in their hands? They aren't going around spearing and baseball swinging eachother between plays. So they are obviously able to control their emotions to the degree that they are told they have to.

    Well the league should handle things properly is what I'm saying. Sadly they don't. But one mistake isn't a good excuse for another mistake.

    Hey I'm not saying agitating is more important than winning, it's just hilarious that he's so far into fans heads that we have 20 plus pages about a 2 minute penalty on another player because he was involved.

    Maybe you guys should just enjoy the win

    I guess you have to find something hilarious when your team has lost 14 consecutive games to your most recent opponent.

    round 1? He landed three punches before Ellers got his gloves off. He has not responded plenty of times but you can keep your fan boy glass nice and shiny to avoid reality. it's not a big deal.

    Disagree. McCarty-Lemieux is a prime example and there have been plenty others. Marchand suckered Eller and should have given him the chance to fight him. And again, the “he got his team a PP” argument is weak considering it’s one game in January and Boston lost anyway

    No my rat, not allowed pets where I live. I just like top end players, which is exactly what Marchand is.

    You're using hindsight to justify your opinion, which isn't the right way to look at this. At the time, it was a one goal game and the Bruins PP has been red hot, especially of late. If Eller had come after Marchand at the start of the game or when the game was pretty much out of hand ( after the OV empty netter ), I would have expected Marchand to answer the bell. Instead, Eller comes out of this looking like an idiot who doesn't know how to settle his business.

    You are right, they are not.
    I wonder why, despite the ability of beefs being borne amongst men with lethal clubs in their hands, that we don't see guys going at each other with sticks.

    Again, a mystery that is destined to remain unsolved.

    I've seen way more incidents with stick swinging back in the eras when fighting was more prevalent than I have in this one where fighting is dying.

    Maybe because when guys swing sticks, someone punches them in the face?

    When was the last stick fight you saw? Dino? Boom boom? Dr hook?

    You take liberties, your don't get to hide behind your reticence to settle. Simple as that.

    Fair enough. Take away hindsight and it’s still just a 1-0 game in January. The Bruins’ season wasn’t riding on that one PP. That said, I agree with you that Eller should’ve challenged him earlier in the game.

    Stick swinging is not as prevalent now in this era as it once was back when fighting and enforcing were more important to teams and the NHL culture. The threat of being punched didn't deter *****ebag play.

    Absolutely, on the otherside I usually don't find something to complain about after 14 straight wins either.

    But it’s 2019 you don’t have to fight when you don’t want to everyone deserves a safe place haha. Listen I agree he was a coward there, I was just merely pointing out when ur that small u gotta pick ur spots but Lars Eller is far from tough lol that shoulda been a spot to pick

    I think this thread can serve as defining the line between an old school hockey fan and a new school hockey fan.

    Marchand's gotta fight there

    I'm a fight fan. The elite top line scorer never has to fight the 3rd line player. Eller had his chance when they squared up last time even with Marchand getting the jump. 5'9 Marchand, nearly any other player would at least ragdoll him. I expect even Krejci could.
