Jovo should be punished for going after him when Izzy's face is in that kind of condition.
I don't blame Jovo for going after him - I'm sure from on-ice, the hit on Linden looked very dirty, and while Linden can take care of himself, so can Izzy (just look at The Dallas Game last year) - Jovo's more Izzy's size. I don't blame Izzy for trying to protect his face, either - my wish was that another Oiler had gotten between Jovo and Izzy and said "look, he's hurting, you want to fight, fight me" but I suppose there wasn't enough time for that, and nobody wants to be the third man in unless they're a SJ d-man.

[edit: ok, I see what you said later in the thread now. Yeah, I think somebody should start something with Jovo next game too, although if Jovo fights BG he should retire, he obviously is brain-damaged from too many concussions or something. Ideally, Izzy will go after him with an unhurt mouth, then that will be that. Both are tough, tough players.]
