i like in the new nhl of today having a player who protect his teammates rosehill,mathers,mcgrattan orr type of player


I don't understand what type of player they were in their playing days have to do with the job they hold currently?

The Flyers were a physical team back then but they also had talent all over the board with multiple hall of famers. That was more of the over riding factor as to why they one those two Cups back in the mid 70's contrary to popular belief.

In the new NHL the goon is slowly getting phased out so why would you want to occupy a spot in your lineup every night for them?
