Andrei Nazarov and Alex Andreyev are the only 2 I remember offhand.

My point was that I don't believe he will be much of a traditional enforcer. I think I remember him pulling someones helmet off and hitting him with it, big penalty.

He also seems to collect penalties for having his skates on the ice or hitting someone too hard 'cause he's too big, even if it's a clean hit. This could make him a liability somewhat like Roy, who I thought received more than his fair share of minutes.

Nasty Nazzy fought until he fancied himself a scorer.

Hard to believe he's a coach now.

Lawton hit on several other topics.

- He said Vinny Lecavalier's contract extension, which will be announced Tuesday, may not be as advertised. It was first reported on Canada's TSN as a nine-year, $77-million deal. But Lawton said, "We're putting on the finishing touches. Everything you've read in the media, it's all false."
Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh?

it was a one-goal game if i remember right.. and i wasn't asking for a cheap shot. just a confrontation... Something like what Lessard did in the final seconds... but with Cookey not the other guy..

heck, if you cant go after cooke for what he did, this league is a joke

Cooke, Nieminen, anyone who stands in the crease untouched, and anyone who constantly knocks Marty down after the play is whistled dead.

There can be no more tolerance for the abuse of the Lightning's players.

Had Gratton been playing, I guaren-damn-tee you he'd have kicked Cooke's ass all over the ice.

That's the 1b reason after his face-offs that he needed to be kept. Adam Hall can't replace that.
