What's actually going to happen is the opposing teams will drive the net and draw penalties if they know those two are going to do stuff like that. I like it rough and tumble, but it was after the play and unnecessary. If he wanted to send a message, he should have punished Kariya while the play was still happening and then maybe he wouldn't have scored the goal in the first place. And if he did it during the PK itself, there's a better chance the refs would let it go. Doing it after the play accomplishes nothing as far as I see it.
