Toughness in my opinion is not a knuckle dragging neadrathal swan diving on my goalie. To me toughness is a smaller guy standing up to that thug afterwards knowing he's gonna take a beating.
It's the Ducks fault Neil would rather have fought Scott Niedermayer than Thornton, May, or Moen?
Was a great series between to hard-hitting teams. The Ducks did a great job this whole season. Amazing how the winning teams always seem to 'run goalies.' Emery flopping backwards when Getzlaf runs into his flailing forearm doesn't equal a goalie being run...
So you're saying there's a chance!
