Very well said. Spott is the coach and GM of this team. Its composition is entirely on him. You can't strip the team of any toughness and then cry when opponents push you around.

Hockey has been the same in that regard for 100 years. You don't have to be goon squad or be dirty, but you sure as heck better not be soft and easy to intimidate. Spott has been crying the same song about OHL officials for years, so you have to ask yourself who the stupid one is. What's the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

Well then, why would Spott still expect the officials to protect them and keep them from getting pushed around? Hell, even if they penalize the guy, it doesn't make our team healthy. This is on Spott. When you have no players who can respond, you get what you get.
