Just occurred to me after reading your comments about younger or smaller players, is that none of those guys take matters into their own hands, like to old days...there is no spears, there is no major slashes, there is no cross checks...……. Which brings me to guys like Max Domi, and Marchand...…..you can't trust them, and even if you go at them...you know they will get you back....same with Gallagher in Montreal, you just don't go after these guys, even if you big, cause there is a cost...…...high end players with bite, they are rare, and everyone wants one But if your coach is going to sit him, when he does this, you iron the starch right out of the player...……….when he is young We just had 20 years of turning the other cheek, we need to move away from that to some extent...…...funny thing is those type of players don't get big suspensions, or get injured much.
