As far as the Joe goes, I think it's more to keep it to a minimum. I read somewhere (and included it in a previous thread) that there are as many as 50 thrown during the playoff games. I guess they have to keep it in check or they'd be all over the place and some people just wouldn't follow proper etiquette.
Yeah, I think it was during the '94 run it just got out of hand. In the end Stevie Y had to make a public plea for fans to stop throwing them. After every goal it was taking so long to clear the ice that it was killing any momentum we had.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
