That's exactly what every goalie should be thinking in a bench clearing brawl. If a goalie leaves his net he should be going to fight the other goalie, not the skater two feet to his left. Period. If he was going to "keep peace" than yes, there's something to be said for going with the skater. But as an earlier picture clearly showsed, Ahoenen wanted to fight, not act as a ref.

I don't question what Emery was thinking of (although I don't condone the method he went about it, with the sucker punch and all) but I do seriously question what was going through Ahonen's mind, fighting a skater with Emery ready and willing.
