As far as Boogaard goes, I wish the Canucks (and the Flames and Oilers, while we're at it) would send one guy to face him. Check this replay at 1:35 and you see Boogaard get cross-checked (by Cowan?) into the glass. After he gets up, he goes after Mitchell, who didn't hit him, but soon is fighting 3 Canucks himself.

Ah, actually it was Edler who knocked Boogaard down...not Cowan with a crosscheck. And it was not a crosscheck either. It is hard to see on the youtube video, but if you look closely, you will see where Edler's stick was etc. I watched the play on TV and it was not a crosscheck. (And if I remember correctly, just beforehand, Boogaard was being a little questionable in his actions.) Boogaard then took a light shot at Mitchell when he got up and knocked his stick out of his hand...Mitchell was bending down to pick up his stick and Boogaard got his stick - possibly accidental - up in Mitchell's face (with one hand on it) while pushing him and not letting him pick up his stick. Boogaard was being an idiot...that was all. As to fighting 3 he wasn't. It was a bru-ha-ha and that was it.

I do not know why you like Boogaard so much. I guess he is your 'Avery' player or some such. But the guy is just a twit. At least Koivu has a classy brother. ; )
