When I met Graves a few years back I asked him about that slash. He basically said he thought Lemieux was faking it and told him to get up. It was only until after the game when his dad spoke to him and told him that he really hurt Lemieux that he started to realize that it was more than just a friendly chop. That's the jist of it anyway.

That 'slash' is what you would call a love-tap back then. I loved those wars as a kid, the personal battles, the game within the game, behind the play antics- remember there was only one ref.

Our very own Ulf Samuelsson perfected the art of pushing a players helmet over his eyes during puck battles along the boards. Much more personality and a more colorful league. Divisional games were guaranteed to be entertaining even if the Rangers got blown out, because you know there will be messages sent in the 3rd period.

Ahh I'm only 28 but I feel like an old man reading these boards.
