Hornqvist gets MORE than he asks for and more than he should expect.

Face wash, and some shoves should be expected and par for the course for what he does.

Cross checks, throat grabs, punches to the face, and dog piles are excessive. The refs should be doing more about those things when they happen.

I think the reason you don't see the team taking up for him more is a fear of going down a man. They always talk about how it's the retaliation that gets called, not the initial contact.

However, since the refs have proven loath to call it appropriately the Preds are likely going to have to take matters into their own hands to send a message early in every playoff series they play.
