Bobby Clarke hid behind the rest of the orange goon squad. He was nothing but a mouthpiece and a huge coward. His slash (not slewfoot0 that broke Kharlamov's ankle was the most atrocious display of unsportsmanlike conduct in the history of the game. He is the most gutless puke ever involved in the sport, both on and off the ice.

So he can't be all that bad, right?

You're just mad because you became a Leafs fan, instead of continuing to wear that Clarke jersey you had when you were little.

The Clarke slash was sooooo bad that Kharlamov missed one game, and played in game 8. That's the single most overblown slash in the history of hockey.

Was Clarke a dirty player ?? Sure, he certainly used his stick in some un-kind ways , but he's far from the dirtiest player of all-time.

Clarke, gutless ??? ... it was his guts and Parent's grace that 2 Stanley Cup winners were built upon. If only Sittler has those "guts".

Captain Elbow Mark Messier!!! I don't think that I've ever seen him take a hit without giving an elbow or spearing someone.

Paul Higgins, early-80's Leafs. Imagine Billy Tibbets without the skill, and you've got Higgins. He never broke ten points in his best junior season, and had a criminal record for assault. His usual tactic once he was on the ice was to select a target, skate straight at him, and start swinging - regardless of whether or not the guy he picked was a fighter. The Toronto media was all over Gerry McNamara, the Leafs' GM, for calling him up from junior in the late part of 1981-82, but that was the worst part of the Ballard era and the organization wasn't interested in listening to criticism. They actually held onto him for another season before letting him go. Career record, 152 PIM and no points in 25 games.

As an Oiler fan, I turned a blind eye to Glen Anderson spearing the odd unsuspecting sucker in the guts a time or two. And Messier could turn in some seriously mean and dirty hockey, too.

Bryan Marchment's hits can sometimes make Ulf Samuelsson's knee specials look clean.

Jimmy Mann's how's-she-goin on poor old Paul Gardner back around 1980 was just god-awful, too.

Billy Smith could pull some pretty mean stuff.

Claude Lemieux wasn't just an agitator, either. He did some mean acts.

Dale Hunter became an embarassment to his gutsy first few years as his career progressed.

Nice...That's a grrrreat argument you make there. Way to go! So Clarke won two cups, three Harts, and a Selke. There's no question he was a great player. Big deal! It's possible to be great and dirty. Claude Lemieux has more Cup rings than your boy (four) plus a Conn Smythe, and was quite the dirty player. How are the two related again?
When I see "Dr. Hook" Tim McCracken, I think of Bob Clarke. Still, Samuelsson was a puke. That thigh shot on Neely was pretty bad. Dale Hunter was consistently dirty, too.

He's calmed down since his second sting. He got Matt Herr pretty good once, but that was about it.

The Hunter hit was brutal no doubt. More brutal was his lame attempt to claim he didn't know the play was over when Turgeon had scored. I guess in Hunter's eyes, most people skate allong the board with their stick and hands in the air when the play is still going, other players have stopped skating and the goal light is red.

One of those players you loved to hate when watching him play for sure. W/o a doubt I didn't like him but his comments after the fact make me question his intelligence. Way more brutal than the Bertuzzi hit and no remorse. He did recieve a 21 game suspension for it.
