If it was someone throwing Boogard, Oliwa etc out there to beat someone senseless the rule would apply.
Let me say up front that I absolutely love Shane Doan as a player. And I'm not saying Visnevsky didn't deserve a swat. And believe me, I'm no Ducks fan. Doan instigated in the last 5 minutes of a game and should be suspended. Your post asserts that the rules apply differently to Shane Doan because he "was facing him and took off his gloves"?
All I'm saying is that Doan deserves to be suspended - for doing what he most likely should've been doing.
What if it were Tyson Nash or Gauthier in that situation? Would the suspension be levied? (Not that Gauthier would drop his gloves, but hypothetically...)
