Go out there and test Sydney's head. It seems to be kosher in the minds of the league. If Malkin wants to throw glancing hits and punches after the whistle, you do the same. The Flyers need to send those entitled jackasses home.
What's worse, this doesn't just affect you for this series. Grossmann will be needed for a long run, and now will more than likely not be available.
The Flyers have no one to do this. Rinaldo hits Michalek, when having him in the line helps the Flyers. Like Berube did in the past, if someone hits your star you hit their star. If someone hits your top defenseman, you hit theirs. A hard high hit to Letang probably puts him out of the series and could go under the radar of suspension but the Flyers have nobody to do it.
