i voted yes. while not directly filtering out cheapshots, i believe that fighting allows the players to police themselves and the instigator rule hand cuffs the said policing. if say random hockey player A takes out a star player, the random hockey goon B should be able to pound him down without fear of the league putting him down, and only the fear of random goon C, D, and E retaliating. If the canucks were able to properly police the moore incident, then it would have never gotten to the point where bertuzzi would have even though about jumping moore. he'd just goad him into a fight. instigator elimates the necessary goading.
