McCarthy and Barnaby actually do have some scoring ability. McCarthy was 11-10-21 and 10-13-21 the last 2 years. Barnaby was 8-13-21 last year. Not great numbers, but for 3rd and 4th line players it’s actually pretty good. Oliwa is the only one of the 3 with no scoring ability at all.
Gordie Howe was one of the toughest fighters of all time. I guess if Howe played today, his coach couldn’t send him out on the ice with 3 seconds left. He’s too tough.
When you run the goalie, you have to pay the price. Why is everyone so terrified of getting a black ice or a broken nose? It’s no big deal. Trottier did the right thing. Let the players settle it.]]>
