When asked to share his opinion on Stars forward James Neal’s hit on Blue Jackets winger Derek Dorsett, which cost Neal two-games via disciplinary action from the NHL, Roenick didn’t pull any punches in labeling the Stars’ leading goal scorer.
‘‘If Neal would have done this 20 years ago, he would have been blackballed from the league,’’ said Roenick. ‘‘If you’re going to get challenged, then drop your gloves and go to it - fight, but don’t come back later on and then give a cheap shot to a guy who has already challenged you.
‘‘To me, that’s kind of gutless and I’m sure a lot of guys in the league think that’s gutless also.’‘
