I'm not talking about cheap shots, I'm talking about big, clean hits.
They were just too scared they would have to fight Semenko or McSorley.
I can hear it in the locker room now....
"Sorry guys, were just going to have to let them have the Cup. I'm not going to line up Gretz. Don't you realize that I would have to fight a big scary guy if I did that....?....I mean we made the finals, isn't that good enough?"
Yeah.....that makes total sense.
So smarty pants,you don't believe Gretzky,Semenko,Sheehy,Sather etc? So,did it ever happen? Did the "turn the other cheek" Mike Milbury Bruins? You remember that new philosophy Milbury insisted on? Terry O'Reilly's overmatched Bruins who beat the Canadiens for the first time ever? That was the climax of that season and the Edmonton train had a costar named Messier the B's could not match up with. Geez
