But your right the league has changed from the good tough hockey of the past, you can call it intimidation if you want, its mostly old fashioned hockey.There was no room for wimps.I think now Branch has reduced the league to Euro shinny/road hockey where next year they can hand out the ballerina outfits.And the officials will be reduced (and its already happening) like in the WWE where they already know the victor.

What I dont get is why players like Biggs and the rest seem to lose their fire so easy after being drafted esp. for the playoffs.Wouldnt you want to win it all cause you might not even get in the big dance and second never win the Stanley Cup.You would think they would want to empty the tank.
I didn't say I didn't like tough hockey however my point is intimidation doesn't work against experienced OHL teams. The issue is poor power play results.
By the way, how many series did the Spits win when DJ played with them.
One.
I enjoyed watching the Spits win 2 cups but their success was led by Hall and Ellis and some very good hockey players.
