Bob Kelly was my favorite

Bob Kelly was my favorite, a crazy SOB and a very effective player. Of course they wouldn't have gotten far without Bernie one of the greatest goalies ever.

When I watch them fight now, I feel like it is part of a show, that they only do it because it is expected. Back in the day the players fought because they really hated each other. The players weren't as well paid and they weren't well educated and they played hockey instead of working in the mines or something. Now they're all millionaires and it just is not the same.

Here's a great clip of Bobby Clarke sticking it to the commies, the Czechs are still pissed about this one!
