Maybe Aaron Rome would have thought twice about knocking a vulnerable Nathan Horton into next season if he knew there might be some retribution. Instead 20 guys are yelling from the bench, 'Hey that wasn't very nice!'

If anybody at this point thinks goons and enforcers protect players from cheap shots, they're a lost cause.
Acutually, I watched an interview with some old-timer Bruin who said he "would have went crazy" if he was there instead of the tepid response the Bruins showed after the Savard hit. Boston's is not that tough; it's just that we're so soft, they have are way with us regardless.

Concussions, eye injuries, busted knuckles, and other broken bones can all come out of a fight. If they want to take that risk, be my guest.
