Not in the NHL, but by NHL player Bobby Clarke...

Much of the whole hockey is about dirtiness/unsportsmanlike conduct. Yapping, shoving a glove into the face, borderline hits, crosschecks etc. are integral part of hockey.

I hate pests and I love to hate them. The game would be much more boring without dirty antics.

...and his ancle incident. Was Turgeon/Hunter incident really worse? So why Clarke always gets a free pass on his actions?

He doesn't. Not around here. Every fan worth their salt knows that Clarke was a great player but also among the all-time cheap shot artists. He was often a coward. He always had the Broad Street Bullies to hide behind and I think that aggravates a lot of fans. He fought far less than he should have with the style he played and rarely had to answer the bell. There are times when you lose yourself in the heat of the moment. It happens. But I can at least have a degree of respect for the guys who man up and let themselves be accountable.

I mean there are often threads about cheap shots and posters always mention McSorley, Bertuzzi, Hunter or Samuelsson etc.. But Clarke? Almost never. Has it something to do that it happened on international level? I don't know, maybe.
Pospisil accident is in my top 3 cheap shots of all-time. This kind of action is so wrong.
