Thank you. I am on the fence regarding whether the Flyers should have responded. On the one hand I like it when teams defend their own. It sends the message that you don't really give a **** if the hit was legal or not, if you go out of your way to lay that heavy a check on one of my players, there will be a price. On the other hand, there are the strategic considerations already mentioned.

What I will say is that we have all gotten a little oversensitive to the whole elbowing issue. Pretty soon there's going to be a rule that players aren't allowed to have elbows or check each other. Subbans and Staois's hits were clean. They made contact with their arms tucked and followed through with their hands to push the opposition player away. Subban shouldn't have turtled but that's another story.
