I spoke to soon ; I like McCarthy but their should be a bonus clause for fighting in his contract starting at 10 or 12 and I'm serious. Its probably illegal but it would work if you could get away with it.

Here's the problem with guys like McCarthy: Schultz in his book 'The Hammer' said after he got to the Kings and was in his 30's, married, kids, knew alot of the guys around the league (and liked) he wanted to just play some hockey BUT there were these new wave of kids coming up that wanted to test the old gunfighter. (It for all intensive purposes ended the career of Schultz; but you live by the sword you die by it and thats what happened to one of the games great goons of alltime- certainly, one of the top 5 who ever played the game imo)
