2,5,10- it was weird about McGill...he seemed like a hugger ..almost like a Gallant type...but when he came back up (when wearing #15 ) he became much tougher , and I must say his stay in CHI his fights were the best...tons of t2t fights. Loved him sticking that big chin ...he was hilarious.
I have seen a clearer version of this fight and if I'm not correct, McGill seemed to really land one at the end, Mulvey was solid on his skates and he did go down pretty fast there....
But yes, I cant say enough about McGill, he was a total throwback, square jawed Hombre who threw caution to the wind with every shift was ready, willing and able to go with anyone. Beleive me when I say it was one of my most depressing days as a Leaf fan when he was traded to Chicago, what made it worse was even though I knew Al Secord
was tough and talented?? he was far from his prime and I knew his fights would suck, which most of them did. He and Semenko did a piss poor job enforcing in 87-88, embarassing actually, meanwhile Big Daddy was entertaining Chicago, you guys were lucky to have him too.
And you're right, McGill's AHL demotion really seemed to help his fighting, changed his style, would have loved to see the Dave Brown fight...I always found it odd how Brown treated McGill, very cautiously in the NHL....
Now hypothetically if you could put Bob McGill's desire, fierceness and competiveness into the heart of Paul Mulvey?? He would have definitely been an alltime legend of Hockey Fighting, things happen for a reason and I feel Mulvey although physically equipped to the hilt?? He just wasnt willing to sacrifice.
