All I'm saying is that it wasn't clear what happened to DD until after the game. And don't get me wrong, I'm all about head hunting next time we see Cole, whether its next year or the year after.
I believe your 100% right, the team was waiting for word on what exactly happened. That's part of my frusration, let's not wait guys lets just react let's protect each other spontaneously and let it be known right/wrong clean/dirty there is going to be a response from the Kings. I'm also not saying lets go out there and do anything dirty let's go out there and send a message with a hit or fists which are both legal parts of the game, yes we'll be penalized, yes we may lose a game because of it, but yes it will protect our star players from further incidents. And this little tirade is not directed at you Driller in any way.
Ok. Like I said I missed the game so I didn't get the "feel"(or lack of feel) for the incident. So maybe i'm overreacting a bit.
