Sure it does, but I also know that it usually hurts a hell of a lot more to take position in front of the opposition goal than in the corner. I haven't just dished it out in my playing career, a few of my coaches thought that since my slap shot was embarassingly bad I might as well stand in front of the net during pp's... so I've taken my share of cross checks to the neck and slashes to the knees as well.

Also, remember that Leclair played before the lockout when defenders had a little bit more of carte blanche to do whatever the hell they wanted in front of the net.
