Not exactly sure why Lain needs to be protected… He is a massive boy, and experienced knuckle dragger in the AHL. Most of these guys want a shot at an established fighter off the hop to prove themselves. Westgarth is not tha great of a fighter. It's not like he had to go with McGrattan.

It was his first NHL game and his family flew out to watch him play. Torts said he regrets putting him out there for that in front of his family. Bieksa tried to spare the kid a fight right away. I haven't seen a comment from Lain yet though.

Sooooo … Duck finally get handed their first regulation loss at home this season.

By the Jets? Had to look that up twice.

Maybe it's old news, but it seems Lain managed to get himself a record on Saturday night, quickest fight from the start of a NHL career.

Have you seen Lain fight? Ask Blair Jones who was on the ice about Lain's abilities… Lain absolutely destroyed him in the AHL earlier this year.

As a tough guy, does he want to be known as the rookie that needed saving in his first game, or a kid who went toe to toe with an established big boy. He would have fought regardless in that game.

Just like Hartley, Torts is full of shit with his stories of why he did what he did.

Ahh,
I tend to disagree….Torts matched Hartley's line up, he's straight up about that and explains…. The 4th line Canuck's said that Tort's told them to be cautious (or something like that) not to out right…..fight.
Hartley drew first blood in a disgraceful , unprofessional way…however it was entertaining

Laine is not some fresh-faced kid from a Tim Hortons commercial … he is there for physical presence. He accumulated 111 penalty minutes in his last NCAA season (32 games). A "staggering amount" for the NCAA, according to Canucks Sports [HTML_REMOVED] Entertainment writer Tyson Giuriato.

I have seen Lain fight, but the AHL isn't the NHL and it was his first shift in his first game and in front of his family. I still stand by my thought that Bieksa did the right thing, and even Lain tapped him with his stick to say thanks in the circle.

Disagree on the Torts part though.

This. Totally.

:lol: that's quite a stat, but he's still an NHL rookie and he was quick to point out how big of a step it is from NCAA to AHL and AHL to NHL.

Question for all the hockey pundits on here, what coach or player is going to say to the media "Yeah, we were told to drop the gloves first shift?" I'd wager anyone who did would likely have a plane ticket to the minors or back to the house they grew up in waiting for them.

Someone also explain how Smid is a "goon" with 14 pro fights in his career plus being an Olympian, and Bieska is an angel in all this with only 64 career pro fights?
Seems to go along with the Canucks and their "We didn't do anything wrong whining"

pretty obvious that Bieska gets picked on.

Like how Don Cherry calls him Bieska all the time?

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.

Show me the quote where someone said Bieksa is an angel…

Need another straw to grasp at?
