Like I said, how classy is it to start a series by saying that you're gonna hit the other team's best player? That would be like the Leafs playing the Red Wings in the finals and saying "Oh, we're gonna hit Yzerman" or something like that... sure, it's a physical game and no one is exempted from being hit... but you just don't go all out and say that you're gonna hit such and such, especially if he's just coming back from cancer!
