One thing that I don't respect from a Tough Guy is Turtling. IMO, it ruins a guys rep and imagine in an area where there is little room for forgiveness.
If your looking for a penalty, let a teamate do the honors, your rep is too important to the team and the public at hand.
I have seen a number of guys do it on occasion but to get things started:
One guy I have seen do it more than a few times is Paul Baxter
. Do I question his toughness and willingness to take on the tough guys?
NO, but in these instances, I wished he had just throwed down and leave the penalties to the other guys. Baxter was a dirty, crazy player and it was obvious that he wasn't afraid of anyone because he was too much of a psycho.
Who were hockeys biggest Tough-Guy "turtlers" for penalties?
Let's hear your TOP choices!
