My favorite is the Capitals player that foolishly messes with Hextall as he's being escorted off of the ice, only to get a major beat down and end up turtling in complete fear for the madman he needlessly unleashed upon himself.

Hextall would be banned from the league today.
Even as a habs fan you had to marvel at his compete level , you gotta respect hextall but billy smith did it better longer and in the playoffs he kicked it up notches unseen.

I wouldnt want to stand in the blue in front of either of them, but forced to choose id take hextall. Hextall had the badass vibe about him, Billy smith was, at times, seemingly crazy.
