It will have some effect, sure. Were there not big, physical defensemen in the WHA? Does the WHA being a wide open league really have much to do with play in the corners? I think it has more to do with the run and gun style, play going back and forth with a lot of odd man rushes and whatnot, not really about digging in the corners. Just how I see it.

And by the way, I'll stop being hostile whenever you start showing your opponents' players respect. You've done this same ******** for three consecutive series' now. Your act is starting to get old and it's absolutely ridiculous.
If my act is so ridiculous, why did I win both series? I call things as I see them. Am I wrong sometimes? Sure. And when I'm wrong, I admit it.
