What rule changes did he cause, or are you joking?
Edmonton used to bring Ruotsalainen to play prety much just the playoffs. I have no idea why really. If he was needed for playoffs, then shouldn't he have been good for all season? It's rather a mystery for me. He was great tho...Niedermayer level. Good complement for Coffey.
If my memory serves, Reijo was injured a lot tho. Probably for breaking his knees and groin with his skating, like Orr.

Probably. He was injuryplagued alot during his career. Rexa is quite an enigma to me to be honest. Wonder if there's a book about him that would shed a bit light.
