The post before you just said they ALL play a "Dont touch me style".

I am not trying to argue mate i just dont think you can paint a continent of Hockey players in this way. I am not doubting there is a difference in styles between North American and Euro but it doesn't mean players are soft because of it.

I have to say with regards to Jagr. He used to take some amount of punishment because he was the biggest danger on the ice for an opposition team and to me it doesn't make him soft just because he doesn't hit everything that moves IE: Callahan.
