When will some of you wake up and realize that it's all about the money, making the playoffs, winning trophies and sadly, not fighting.
Times have changed, for the worse, I'm afraid.
NY, Philly, Isles, Bruins, Sabres, etc might be able to ice a tough lineup but the Kings showed that you can be tough without dropping the gloves.
Seems like all those soft Western Conference teams are trying to copy Los Angeles and not Buffalo.
It sucks but it's true.
Yeah, Mike... but this is a site predicated on hockey fighting, not hitting, mental toughness or anything else.
Our definition - or most of ours anyway- in the context of toughest team means who would win the fights, period.
