Former Mario Lemieux linemate and current member of the Edmonton Oilers Radio Broadcast Team Rob Brown joined Seibel, Starkey, and Miller on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN to talk about what took place between the Pens and Islanders on Friday night, and Mario Lemieux’s comments about the game and what the league should be doing to protect its players.

Rob said he is sure the Pens knew what to expect from the Islanders headed into that game, but what took place took things to another level and that it where Lemieux’s frustration stems from.

Rob also said that he agrees with everything Lemieux said, but as long as Matt Cooke is employed by him, nobody else across the league will have any sympathy.

In regards to all the fighting against the Islanders, Rob doesn’t think it’s what hockey traditionalists would like to see, but also thinks it isn’t necessarily a black eye for the league because fans want to see the fights, although in his eyes, a skater attacking a goalie is completely uncalled for in any situation.

Rob wrapped things up by stating that he believes there should be more fighting in the league and the NHL should get rid of the instigating penalty because that will allow the players to police themselves.
