I dont think that hextall ever worried about having not to answer for his actions and when things got a little sketchy, he wasnt one to look to the bench for help and was more that willing to take matters into his own hands.
emery was crazy, after the hip thing not so much. I still think that hextall had more fighting majors and aside from the emery fight with peters i dont recall him going with other players. Hextall went after chelios for chellys hit on brian propp. Not only was hextall willing to go with anyone, he was happy to be an enforcer in his own right ( between all the slashes and stuff).
people can argue the order but its either hextall/smith or smith/hextall then pretty much everyone else.
