I don't think people remember how brutish the Pens were physically during that run. They were almost openly trying to hurt guys, but since then it's a far friendlier version on the forecheck that we've seen.
very true.

i specifically remember cooke targeting datysuk (returning from injury) with several questionable (honestly they were dirty) hits when he returned to the lineup in the '09 finals. remember one where he knocked datysuk's helmet off. that's the kind of stuff the pens need to do. rough up stars, target vulnerable players, etc.

but yes, no head shots.
