"I think the point was that a lot of college players play tough all the time with the cage. It's a lot tougher to do that with no cage in the pros. Nobody is saying there are no tough players in the college game but, the fact is, that cage gives college players an awful lot of courage that they wouldn't ordinarily have"

Yep. That was my point. It's not the same. If you high stick a guy or run a guy in college there isn't much they can do to you. In the minors or NHL there is a good chance you will have to answer for it. Holik is a player that really has gotten away with not answering for many of his hits but there aren't many like that. Look at Doig. Despite the visor, Simon and DeVries destroyed him. If they want to get at you in the NHL they probably will
