If there was a Tocchet type player on this team (and please, don't even start saying Hartnell is a Tocchet-type player because Hartnell couldn't even hold Tocchet's protective cup), Prust and all those other guys wouldn't be running around the way they do because there would be retribution for their acts. It might not be that game, but you know next game, they'd certainly have to keep their head on a swivel.
Comparing anyone to Tocchet is unfair, as the rules and officiating of the NHL have changed completely. What Tocchet could do, and what modern guys can do are two different things.

We have Shelley (supposedly) for a reason.
