Why wait for Worrell?

What surprised me about the incident with Pronger is that Blake, someone of equal talent and toughness didn't fight him right away?

Blake was within 2 meters of Pronger when Kariya got cross checked. Why didn't Blakey show some team toughness and take on Pronger right then and there? Don't wimp out Blake and wait for your enforcer, cause the only guy he'll end up fighting is Reid Low, not Chris Pronger. Pronger is smart enough to not allow himself to get drawn into a fight with Worrell. If Pronger is to go off for 5 minutes for fighting, he'll take a Foote or Blake with him to the penalty box.

It was a dirty stick by Pronger, but until someone from the Avs steps up to stop him, he won't stop.

As a Canuck fan, I was proud to see Jovo bust up Isbister after Izzy nailed Linden into the boards. It was early in the season and Jovo definately sent a message to the rest of the league. The Avs didn't send a message that they would stick up for one another.
