I don't think he was a loose cannon. I still maintain that that hit on Mosey was good. In fact the biggest loose cannon moment was when Lepine got dropped in OT by someone half his size against Dundee and speared the guy and cost us the game
The Mosey hit was perfectly fine, I was thinking more his other hit against who slips my mind & the fact his card was potentially marked from that point.
I'd rather have Lepine playing the protector role than Rissling. Hughes & Rissling offered a hit for the flow of the game, Lepine can protect a team... Or at least could in his first stint.
i think rissling is a better fighter, better hitter, and better defence man after you compare the two last season.
