Probably not going to get a lot of overwhelming support on this issue on this board.

Don Cherry paid Joe a huge complement today and said he was the games best complete player, and he likely isn't too far off. He is a competitor who plays hard and to win, and he uses his size and one would expect. However, a hit from behind when someone is facing the boards is a really dangerous play, and is consistently called by the refs, and righfully so. Intent to injure...a subject of debate no doubt.
