      Not if it's the Devil's way..That in itself really hurt hockey when those systems were really starting to be employed..That, on top of the clutching and grabbing that the ref's never enforced..It's good strategy but I still hate it..My intimidation is really light this year so that will also play a factor for whomever plays me as well

      I never get tired of winning.

      It was amazing how little intimidation there was due to the lack of
      inside chances.
