I remember a few years back maybe about 12-15 years back, Don Cherry said that if Pittsburgh had Bob Probert then Mario Lemieux would not have the injuries he has today. Probert of course was there for Steve Yzerman. And lets be honest can you remember a time when Yzerman was cheap shotted? I can't. Lemieux was 6'4" 230lbs., no slouch by any means, but he was a guy you hardly ever wanted fighting all the time. And some of his injuries were the cause of cheap shots that no one retaliated against. Now its the same for Crosby, here's a kid who's 5'10" and after a guy like Derian Hatcher all 6'5" of him high sticks him blatantly no one jumps to his defense! What is it with Pittsburgh and not protecting their stars? Edmonton had it right with Semenko/McSorely watching Gretzky, Yzerman always had Probert, Lindros of course usually fought on his own, but even Mike Bossy had Clark Gilles. When is Pittsburgh going to get it right?
