Furthermore, by your rationale, since "all" it does is cost us a penalty, tomorrow we should call up the worst player on the Whale and have him attack Crosby. Sure, he'll be kicked out of the game and we'll have to weather a 5 min penalty, but hey that's a good deal for us.

C'mon, guys. Frontier justice satisfies your own desire for retribution, but it does nothing to help the team - especially for this team, which is plenty tough. It's not 1977 anymore, much as some of you wish it was.
It sure as hell does stop it in the future. If a team beats a guy prone on the ice into a concussion for running their goaltender, guys will think twice before doing it in the future.
