I remember in the Seventies

I remember in the Seventies the Islanders had a scrapper named Gary Howatt who couldn't have been more that five foot eight or nine and was an EPILEPTIC to boot! A player like that would not even make it as far as junior now. Those guys back then could punch each all night and not get hurt because they were just not well conditioned athletes like now.
