Have anyone said anything about a "sucker punch"?
The TBL announcers were sure ripping into Ladd in the YT video. Yes they said he sucker punched Hedman multiple times. If you follow the CBC link, you can clearly see it's not a sucker punch and Hedman threw the first punch (with his visor equipped helmet still on).
Wheeler and Brewer got slashing penalties. Didn't see the Wheeler slash, but I'll give the benefit of the doubt. Ladd and Hedman both got 5 minute majors and a misconduct for fighting. Plus Ladd got 2 for roughing. It should've been Hedman 2 for roughing.
Clearly TBL wasn't that upset about Ladd fighting Hedman because nothing happened a week later.
