You look at clips from the '70s and even most of the 80s and you can see several bench clearing brawls over the year, even at the WJC in '87 we all know. They seemed so natural back then. I can remember Floyd Smith coach of the Leafs in '79 calling his players to go onto the ice against the Isles I believe it was. the last bench clearer I can think of is in the '92 playoffs with the Devils and Rangers after a game. I guess nowadays there is less controversy since players dont have to cross the ice in most rinks to get to their change rooms which started a lot of them, but will we ever see another bench clearing brawl in the NHL?
