After sufficiently painful medical treatment, they should then be escorted to the far corner of a very dark parking lot and rolled out into the street. We don't come to the Joe with a cannon to celebrate our goals, you don't show up here with your crap.
To me, throwing an Octopus on the ice in a safe (assuming no one was hit, the Octopus was properly boiled so no 'goo' hits anyone, etc.) manner is not an excuse for violence. I can understand being upset and having some words for the fan, but assaulting them is not okay IMO. If that is an excuse for assault to you, then I'm not sure we should continue this discussion- I don't think either of us would change our opinion.

It is a hockey game and we are all hockey fans. The last thing I (and I hope all sports fans) want to see is another incident like the Giants fan seriously injured earlier this year.
