The most penalized player in National Hockey League history hates the league's squeaky-clean makeover. But in blasting the league yesterday, Tiger Williams said he was defending the skill players of yesteryear as well as his lunchbucket buddies. "They've taken everything out of the game," the former Maple Leaf complained yesterday at the Air Canada Centre, after helping a team of Canadian legends beat a team of Russian legends 7-4 in an exhibition game. "Guy Lafleur would grind out his 50 goals every year and so did (Lanny) McDonald, (Bryan) Trottier, the Rocket, Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux. Now, you don't have to get a broken nail on your finger and you're going to score 40 or 50 goals.
