I also love it in it's toughest raw form of knockdown dragout hockey.. I do not like cheapshots or biting but I do love hard checks and the occasional fist to cuffs. I think the NHL has taken alot of flack for allowing this type of hockey and in this politically correct climate they have not changed much which is both surprising and refreshing
Every time the whistle blew, someone would wack, smack, slap, hook, hit with their stick, one of the Sundin sisters. That Marchant guy must be on crack or something. He would not shut up, or stop picking at someone. He has so much skill, he does not need to be a super pest. I love tough. I hate cheap. There is a difference. Besides this series had 3 very boring lop sided games in it.
