Compare those to the Fisher, Wilson, Yip, Geoffrion, or Bouillon fights which are directly related to events on the ice.
Except none of the other Preds you mentioned are intimidating to other teams, and no one else on this team needs to, or is expected to fight (except maybe Tootoo).
Also, the reason there are so few instigator calls is because nobody jumps anyone anymore and that's what you have to do nowadays to get that call.
