    i always liked the way he handled those idiot green men in VANCOUVER, crawling all over the penalty box walls. i wished he could get a hand on at least one of them and pull them into the box with him, it could have been quite a treat watching the creep begging for mercy! i also had a great respect for a defenceman playing for the BLACKHAWKS named CAM RUSSEL. I always thought of him as a man’s man and if given a choice wore his # 8 on my jersey. DOMI caught him just right and had CAM pinned over the boards backwards one night in TORONTO during a fight .TIE gave CAM a bad beating and i’m sure the cocussion he got shortened his carrer. i remember another BLACKHAWK tough guy that deffinately got the upper hand on DOMI and hit hit with a barrage of rights and lefts….but did not drop him.in an interview after the game the HAWKS player said he could believe he din’t knock DOMI out! he said” HE HAS A HEAD LIKE IT’S MADE OF CONCRETE” !
