In Defense of David Koci

31

There is someone on the avs who gets and unfair wrap....Aw Shit, Ican't even write this without laughing, I'm just fucking with you, this guy is terrible. But how bad is he? He's played in 3 games 6 minutes 29 seconds and got his ass kicked once in his one fight and is a -1. At that pace he'll catch up to what Liles averages in another 6 games and have played a full 60 minutes sometime in March. So he'll be rested, I guess that's some bonus. Last year, which was his first with the avs he went 3-4-4 if you add up the votes at hockeyfights.com (not the most independent of judges). Since that's what he's susposed to be good at, you know, since it's his job, that's not a good sign. And looking into it a bit more he beat DJ King (a good win), Wade Belak (a decent opponent but no one ever brags about beating Wade Belak's ass) and John Erskine, who as I remember only fought him cause he boarded one of his teammates. Put him up against someone else who fights for a living and he just is sub par. I'm not going to lie, I didn't re-watch any of the fights. Do you want to know why? Let me tell you I can remember David valantly blocking opponents fists with a very Dingmanlike flick of his face and opposing fighters must love punching his down pillow-like grill, I have yet to see an opponent even cut his knuckles on his soft, supple skin. While he's not out there starting needless fights, he does nothing--nothing to keep people from screwing with the avs. Let's face it, who are you more scared of Cody Mcleod or David Koci? (Yes I do realize either of them could kick my ass, but Cody would laugh at me afterwards and David might call me an ambulance). There are 15 guys in the AHL who could do what he does and be better at it. In conclusion: http://www.hockeyfights.com/players/1384 Sorry Beachie if I ruined your next 'checking out'
