Forgive me if this has already been posted, but:
"Heâ€™s been in the league about 15 plus years, itâ€™s not any secret what he brings to a team," said Holland. "He obviously brings a dimension of physicality. He has no problem dropping the gloves. Heâ€™s a vocal leader on the bench."
"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we donâ€™t have him, we get run. We donâ€™t have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. Itâ€™s just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."
So that right there pretty much shoots down the Softy-Crowd excuse of May being "worthless" because "physical players dont PREVENT injuries and cheapshots"
