Otter's Retaliation On Duncan Keith



I am a very proud Dallas Stars fan. Always have been and always will be; but I got even prouder when I saw Otter go right after Duncan Keith for that BS hit followed by wimpy shove to the back that he put on Benner last night.  I literally got off my couch and started clapping when he jumped in there as fast as he did.  Most people don't see the irony in what Otter did.  It was more then just a save. Jamie Benn is more then capable of defending himself, and any one who thinks otherwise can go ask Jerome Iginla's face; but Otter jumped right in there and made a statement. Not just to Duncan Keith and the Hawks, but to the whole NHL, and that was "Don't mess with our young stud and probably our future captain down the road!" Otter's retaliation says alot about what type of a player/person he is despite what the rest of the league and non Stars fans may think of him.  Its shows how much he cares and that gets me very excited and I know it did the same for the Stars bench last night as well.  As a fan I remember things like that and I will put that moment right up there in the memory bank right behind a one legged Captain Brendan going after the Canuck bench during the Vancouver playoff series, and Darryl Sydor crawling on the ice with a badly injured leg just to try and get back in front of the net to help Eddie out in the 2000 Finals.
