AMEN. AMEN. AMEN. AMEN. Horns gets taken advantage of more because of his size in relations to holmstrom's, no doubt. I'm still shocked that putting someone's arm around a person's throat (which seems to be the most attacks against Horns) is allowed as much as it is by the zebras. Around the other goal crease, Peks is having to protect himself waaaaaay to much (although he is VERY good at doing it- you do NOT want to make him mad, from what I've seen).
