Then what the F is the point of taking a penalty and risking an injury (to our best forward) after he hit Timonen?

Timonen is one of our best players, and a D... he's going to get hit... that's reality, and it isn't going to change because you decide to goon it up (essentially what you're advocating) as a response to that happening.
Because you cannot have guys like Timonen getting run by guys like Prust. He needed to be dealt with, Richards was the most likely candidate. Since when did fighting to defend your teammate get taken off of Richards job description? While it is not something I would like to see him do on a regular basis, there is also times when the captain steps up and takes on whatever job is necessary.
