    Remember first hearing about him as a leader down in Providence. Didn't really expect much when he was called up - but he's everything you could ask from a bottom half defenseman.

    Who's afraid to go after Scott?

    Love the guys who get the very most from their skills.

    He's always one of the first guys to jump in, props to him. Reminded me of the Torres hit on Ference a year or two back.

    Team player, and I'm sure the entire team appreciated his actions. Good going McQuaid.

    Quainter puttin in work

    It seems like in the last couple of season quaider steps in to do Shawn's JOB for him. I told someone when I saw Thorton and Scott at that faceoff earlier that Mr. Merlot won't fight him and Scott will take runs and hurt one of ours.

    Big Thornton fan but he is clearly intimidated.

    Love McQuaid. Hopefully they can continue to find a spot for him with all of these young guys coming up. Total team player and gets what it means to be a Bruin

    2 goal lead, no reason to waste his time on a tool like that. What a ****ing fat loser **** that Scott is. He needs to get a loooong suspension.

    Good for Adam . :handclap:

    Scott had better be gone for awhile. What a hack and crappy player.

    Hope Loui will be ok :(

    He went from a guy I liked to a guy I loved tonight. He did not hesitate or think, he reacted and went after the biggest thug on the block.

    I want blood the next time they play the Sabres.

    Got to love to se him jumping in against a mammoth in Scott. Shows what a Bruin and teammate is all about

    It's not that he isn't afraid, it's that he is not a deterrent to such events happening with those pillow hands. I like Thornton and think we should keep him around. Would like to see a more menacing fighter for those games against the Scott's, Orrs and whatnot (Just for regular season).

    Can't say enough good things about McQuaid. don't underestimate what character, team guys like him bring to a team. good on him for stepping up and not thinking twice about it.

    for all the people calling out Thornton, he wasn't on the ice when the hit happened, what do you want him to do? come off the bench? no doubt Thornton looks like he lost a couple steps in his fighting game (what do you expect, he's 36 years old doing a young mans job) but he still steps up and defends teammates. he fought Bordeleau, who is a hell of a lot better fighter then scott. wasn't much of a fight but he's still willing to defend teammates and he is still a much better player then other players who do his job. people jump on Thornton here very quickly when things like this happen, can't believe some still question his character.

    The best part of that whole fight? McQuaid taps Scott first to let him know he's coming. He didn't just jump Scott and start swinging. McQuaid is ****ing awesome.

    And gets an instigator. Clueless refereeing at its worst. Instigator penalty should be for a pug starting a fight with a Byng trophy winner, not for calling out a cheapshot artist.

    All credit to McQuaid for doing the right thing.

    As far as follow-up, my hope is that the Bruins would need to loan a player to the Ringling Brothers Clown league to get a shot at Scott - he should be out of the NHL. He may be a great guy off the ice, but at this point he is a goon, a marginal hockey player, and a danger to everyone on the ice, and he clearly has little sense of his rightful role in the game - no part of which should include going after players like Kessel and Loui.

    Mcquaid is a crazy son of a b****

    I cant remember the last player I saw that had crazy eyes every time he goes to fight. When he asks people to go, its with full excitement in his eyes. He's tough, and he loves it

    ...and Quaider always looks disappointed when no one will "go" with him.

    I hear Adam is shy off the ice.
