I'm sorry, I'm not a kid anymore. If you take cheap shots at me or my teammates, its not "okay". I'm not going to just let it go, shake your hand and pretend its all fine so you can come back and do it again next time.
Part of the game is about leaving it all on the ice when it's over, because it's simply that...a game.
If someone punches your wife, you settle it however you want within the confines of the game. That being said, if it's right at the end of the game and he quickly skates into the handshake line to avoid you...well, I think it's only fair that you get a chance to punch him in the chops as you skate by, never mind just avoiding his handshake. He should expect it.
