When playing those teams, there isn't really a chance to take a cheap shot or to play on the edge without having the whole team smoke you.

That's my two cents.
The Bruins keep being brought up as an example and I can't fathom why. Over the last few years the Bruins have lost Bergeron, Savard, and Krejci to headshots.

Their way doesn't seem to work all that well as a deterrent.
