Protection = Opposing players must be willing to assess the RISK in doing something "over the edge" to someone. It becomes "
tit for tat
". They have to "pick their spots" more carefully because the "payback" is more severe. Injuries from the fight can occur, and the player might have to back down.
I'm pretty sure Boychuk backed down from trying to stick out his knee once Ryan White came and stood up to him.
the risk factor is a suspension, not facing a beating that you can easily avoid anyways.
