That incident happened after the slash.
Everyone remembers the slash but no one ever seems to mention that Mikhailov actually kicked Bergman. Slashing happens in every game, does kicking? Kicking is definitely worse.
Clarkes slash was definitely dirty but 1) He was a kid doing what he was told. 2) The game did mean more then any one of us could imagine.
I will grant that Ferguson is actually a bigger piece of s*** than Clarke.
Both should have been banned from international play.
Life would have gone on if Canada had lost.... just as it did when Canada lost the '74 Summit Series.
