Traditionalists may not think Milan Lucic is a dirty player because he stands up for himself and his teammates by dropping the gloves when the going gets tough. However he seems to always be putting himself in the situations where he needs to defend his actions. Although Lucic was not suspended for his now infamous hit on Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller, the play forced the NHL to ensure stricter guidelines for netminder safety. He was then banned for a game last month for hitting Philadelphia's Zac Rinaldo from behind.
