That's not the point at all. The point is to prevent cheapshots. And it didn't in Armstrong's case. The cheapshot had been committed. Had he run around more after already committing the cheapshot, he certainly would have faced league disciplinary action.

Because, frankly, that's a misguided belief. And there's pages upon pages of people in this thread pointing to the Bruins as being the prime example that deterrents don't work. Having a tough team + goons still doesn't prevent cheapshots. The B's receive cheapshots regularly--more than Montreal, even.
