There is a reason there are fewer of these players every season. They are nearing extinction, no matter how much fans long for them.

I love watching fights because they are entertaining. Their impact on an outcome is non-existent, though. It was a great strategy a long time ago when the Flyers beat their opponents into submission and scared the crap out of them. Partially because the rules have changed, it just doesn't work anymore.
Where did I say they had to suck at everything else?
