Dan Carcillo: A Confused Powerhouse

“I’m actually pretty excited to play them because there are a few guys there that I think played a little bit outside of their shoes.”

“I think I can keep most of those guys in check when we play them this year.”

—Dan Carcillo, on the Vancouver Canucks (via Vancouver Sun)

Carcillo, newly signed by the Chicago Blackhawks, is prepared to single-handedly keep the Canucks in check this season.

On the other hand, given that Tanner Glass and Raffi Torres are apparently near the top of his hit list (in his comments today), Carcillo might not be entirely aware of who actually plays for the Canucks these days…

Yeah, he sees himself (and I guess Stan Bowman does too) as a one man wrecking ball for the Hawks. If this is the Hawks’ strategy, they’ve got big problems. Carcillo is a professional goon. Let’s just hope he doesn’t seriously hurt someone.

Carcillo is fantasy gold in any league that values PIMs. Unfortunately, he plays in real life and now the Red Wings will get to see him 6 times a year.

Carciullo is Legit Nucking Futs !! Pens got tired of his Crap & traded him for LaRaque , Phoenix traded him for Upshall & Philly got tired of him to!

He hurts the team he is on more than the Opponent

Its too bad we still have people like this in the game.  I fully expect to see Carcillo’s name next to Torres and Cooke at some point or another.  How great for Wings fans that he is now on a team that fancies themselves Wing-killers.
