Hoping the Mitchell injury is also minor, too. Hate losing defensemen.

And this is what pisses me off about post lockout hockey. In the old days, if someone did something to your players, you could start a fight with them whether they liked or not. You had to atone for your actions. Now guys can do things and sometimes there is no retribution depending on the refs. And guys just run away and hide and there's nothing you can do or else risk an instigator penalty.
Very true. Versteeg was elbowed Tuesday in Carolina and had his nose broken. The offender was challenged numerous times to no avail.

I'm sure you would have liked to drop gloves with kopescky or berg, but like Tuesday in a close game can't risk it post lockout.
