Todays coach and goon needs to accept the penalty when a player like Hank gets run, and the retribution isn't boogaard fighting Carcillo, its boogaard grabbing Giroux and pummelling him.

Yes, we get penalized, but eventually teams will not risk their best players getting pummeled in order to 1)run hank, or 2)get a powerplay.

Neither is worth a broken facial bone in your star players

Been saying this for years. When Colton Orr bashed Ovechkin's face in for running Lunqvist, he earned his money for the season. That's what a goon is supposed to do.
