Those guys were allowed to do their thing with the minimum of punishment. I don't think that any of those guys was subjected to the level of abuse that Mario Lemieux has endured in his career.
How much weight you give to the enforcer's role is subjective but I don't think it can be denied that they do play a role in the success of others.
