As was once said in a book about the NHL that I can't remember the name of, written by a guy who's name I don't remember:

"You can't give a concussion on a blindside hit to the captain of a team on the north side of the border without expecting some form of retaliation. Naslund had a power forward on his opposite wing for a reason."

Everybody remembers Bert but nobody seems to remember Moore letting the puck slide by him to run Naslund and give him an elbow hit straight to his head concussing him and he didn't get penalized.

Naslund needed thirteen stitches in his head, missed multiple games and had his elbow damaged.

Up north we protect our stars. That's why we employed enforcers. Bert may have done more than needed but people can't get away with concussing our star players.
