Note to all posters who participated in the "So is Ovechkin not allowed to fight and have to be protected?" thread:

This HBO special is required viewing if you want to see what protecting a captain was all about.

See: Flyers, circa 1970s. See: Bobby Clarke.

Clarke would frequently carve guys up with his stick...and then his troops would circle around to cover his ass.

Worked to the tune of three Final appeances and two Cups.

Actually it should be required viewing for 99% of HF posters, the amount of whining when anything even remotely physical happens is unbelieveable.

NHL main board should be renamed "I want player X suspended" .

It's not the physicality, it's the over-protected players using potentially career ending headshots and knee-on-knees, the physical play that happened back in the 70's at least the players weren't hiding behind visors, hell some of them barely wore shoulder pads and would fly around with no helmet. You could take the "All-Pansy" team of 09/10, and have them matched up with the 70's Flyers and the all-pansy team would kick the crap out of them due to how protected they are and how they can fly into an opposing player with reckless abandon because they won't feel a thing. Either reduce the equipment size or ban headshots, the game has "evolved" under Gary Bettman to the point that it needs to get regulated.
