Good read imo SF.....by brawler
Pretty bang on imo........Especially the fine'em, suspend'em,ect theory. Isn't going to mean a fricken thing. You leave crap on the ice sooner or later somebody will be there to make sure a price is to be paid. I'm still waiting for the archive so I can watch the game but I'm a happier camper when the Chiefs have some toughness to take care of guys like Ross. There's nothing more frustrating as a fan IMHO than seeing punks like Ross pick on guys like Tyler Johnson and having nobody willing to collect for them. And Kramer seems to be a good fit. If Ross turtles like he always does after pulling his crap(diving behind a ref,teamate,or goes skating to the bench after) I think the Chiefs can afford Kramer in the box after chasing him down and making him pay. I believe this because the guys are willing to rally for him while in the box. He has their respect.
Some people may be frowning a bit on guys like Baldwin and the lack of toughness he's shown this year. What they fail to realize imo, like it or not, Is he is one of the Chiefs top dman currently. If they think Baldwin hasn't wanted to knock a few heads off than perhaps they don't know him or they're overlooking his intentions on the ice and really have no understanding of the role the COACH currently chooses for him. They can't afford Baldwin to be in the box for long periods of time with this younger defense. It sucks I'd love to see him enforce more.
It's no secret I'm a fan of bang'em up hockey....I'd like nothing more than to see Don let go of the leash a bit more on guys like Baldwin....But I guess coach feels Kramers time is better served in the box than a guy like Baldwin.
When the real big boys come knocking(Caron,Mcllrath,Elliot)Baldwin has a greater chance of breaking free I think to give Kramer a break.
Just a few opinions here....Some loose change...heh heh
