Actual examples of players hanging off another?

I always hear the expression "______ would do better in today's game without players hanging off of him."

All these hyperboles start somewhere. What are some good examples of a player actually dominating the game with someone hanging off of him?

Going by the title and not the original post.

There's the story of Richard scoring a goal while Earl Seibert of Detroit hung on his back.

Isn't that goal by Jagr against Philadelphia - some years ago now, maybe 1998-2000 area - where he gets taken down and while down hits the puck out of the air or something ridiculous...I thought I remember some Flyers hanging off of him then (Therien?).

Search for Forsberg or Jagr on Youtube.

mario lemieux, jagr, lindros, forsberg were players who could score with players hanging on them.

that kind of obstruction can be seen in most close playoff games from the seasons before the lockout.

this video shows mostly hooking.

I believe it was in a book by Red Story that he talked about this situation with Bobby Hull. Defenders would latch onto him, but no penalty would be called because the man was so strong it didn't impede him.

I think players like Jagr were more successful because he was one of the few who could power through clutch and grab.

Too bad you can't see if the referee has his arm up.

Didn't Lemieux once quit because of this kind of plays by d-men? I remember something like that, but I might be totally off here.

When Mario retired the first time, he placed part of the reason on the clutch and grab style of play. Of course, having a wonky back didn't help things either.
