This wasn't the case , so the rule wasn't applied.
KJ, I truly thought you better than to defend this blatant breaking of a rule. If his intention was to discourage sending goons out in the final few minutes, he should have added "at the discretion of the league office."
Doan, Iginla or any respectable star can take cheap shots and provoke a fight with less than five minutes in the game, but if Avery or someone else less respected does it, then it's okay?
It's more important for the league to discourage goons being sent out, than to discourage poor sportsmanship and cheapshots? That's pathetic.
