That's my point. You can have a Kasparaitis in your lineup and still never fear the fate you predict simply by putting an Orr in your lineup. That rather blunts your prediction of impending doom for teams with players who won't fight.
Did I say take care of himself? I said take care of IT themselves. Ulfie's teammates ddin't suffer because Domi simply blasted him in the face and knocked him the hell out. And frankly, Mario got abused by other teams because the Pens refused to defend him. It certainly didnt' help his injury problems.

Ask Nedved how great that worked out for him. Even Avery admits it, he's said some himself. Sometimes, you HAVE to fight, otherwise, you're teammates are going to get hurt.
