I just think that Phaneuf shouldn't HAVE to fight there. Clarkson challenged him for an eternity with no intention of paying attention to the play. It just seems like cut and dry instigating to me.
Clarkson did instigate, there is no question about that. Phaneuf hit Parise and I'm sure he knew he was going to have to answer the bell. I give him credit for dropping the gloves even though he was reluctant too at first. I'm just saying it doesn't matter if it's a clean hit or not, when a team's star get rocked a fight will happen. If Phaneuf had hit say Bernier or someone like, then I would think fighting after a clean hit is dumb
