Bah! Laus was the designated tough guy on a crappy team, the Florida Stinkin Panthers, who didn't even make the playoffs.
Schultz's 74-75 season changed the way the game was played, the Flyers won 51 games and the Cup, the 2 don't even compare, you could argue that Schultz was the team's MVP that season, he gave guys like Clarke, Barber, etc loads of space on the ice and other guys like Dupont, Kelly, and Saleski the confidence to intimidate.
All Laus did was bust up his hands for a horrible team that never really appreciated him. I felt sorry for him.
