Ted Lindsay... the original "little ball of hate".

He fought the other team... he fought the league... he even fought the HoF when he was inducted.

Quote:
In 1966 he was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Lindsay politely declined to attend the ceremonial banquet since it was an all-male affair and he felt he owed a debt to his family for its support over his long career. Not coincidentally, the next year the banquet was opened up to include both sexes.
