I know the league is shit, but was amazed to see he played 79 games and had zero fights.

I can understand guys changing their games, but being a defenseman and his style you think he would had to have fought a few times after hits or a player giving his goalie a issue.

He's not very good at it anymore. I would have put him (and Lucic) in that "could beat anyone on any given night" category for a while, but his last umpteen fights have been shit. He's getting long in the tooth and has taken more of a leadership role where perhaps the coaches just don't want him in the box.

Didn't Behn Wilson only have one fight in his last season with Flyers?....I'm trying to think of guys who had light seasons for fights....

Its not like a lot of teams have guys that would/could fight Deryk anymore but like you say, its surprising he did not have one or two.

The younger guys getting called up are not used to fighting being in the game and seem uninterested.

NHL will walk a fine line between getting very boring and keeping the head injury lawyers at bay.

What? Don't get me wrong, but I loved Orr, but Engelland was still fighting long after Orr left the game.

How many times did they fight? I remember Engelland dropped him once with a beauty and thought he got another decision. I kind of remember a third being close.

He gets a pass from me. . . . He paid his dues in the WHL and the AHL in the late 90's early 2000's fighting Bogey, McNeil, Derek Parker, Josh Gratton, Brookbank, Yabo, Rosehill, Flynn. etc.

Wish he could have lifted the cup this year.

He fought Orr a bunch in the WHL and AHL, Engelland got the better of that series.
I see Blue! . . . He looks glorious!
