Daniel Carcillo wants piece of Canuck
"I don't want to name names right now, but there is one guy on Vancouver I'd like to take a big piece of, and I think everybody knows who I'm talking about," Carcillo said on "The Carmen, Jurko & Harry Show" on ESPN 1000.
And on Wednesday, he said: "Throw [Alex] Burrows in there, too."
The Blackhawks host the Canucks Nov. 6.
The Blackhawks acquired the 6-foot, 205-pound Carcillo to provide some toughness that was perceived to be missing last season, especially during their first-round playoff series, which Vancouver won in seven games.
And considering Carcillo has 986 penalty minutes in 282 career games, they might have found the right guy.
"It's hard for me to stay out of the principal's office," he said. "Every year I seem to get in trouble, but it's part of my game. I guess I have a little problem with authority figures."

But with new rules aimed at protecting players and reducing head injuries, Carcillo realizes he'll have to be careful.
"You always have to walk a fine line, and I play with so much emotion that sometimes I'm going to cross that line," Carcillo said. "With the new rules, being out there in the preseason, it's been pretty rough.
"You're thinking before you're hitting, and when that happens, you don't want to think too much out there."
