Roberts Beats Eager Like a Rented Mule

I know this is a couple of days old now, but I really enjoyed watching Gary Roberts teach Ben Eager a few lessons in fighting the other night in the game against the Flyers.  For a man of 41 years, Roberts did a commendable job of showing the 23-year old youngster that you don’t get away with an elbow to the head of an opposing player without paying a price.       

The Flyers have more player suspensions this year than any other team in the league with 5 (Riley Cote, Steve Downie, Jesse Boulerice, Randy Jones and Scott Hartnell).  Can Ben Eager be far behind?  The sad thing is that Eager did not take a penalty for the initial elbow to the head of Laraque, but Laraque got a double minor for the retalliation.
