Hartnell started wearing a visor either early last year or maybe even during his rookie season after he took a stick to the eye. I guess he decided millions of dollars in career earnings was more important than not giving opposing fans something to complain about.
Do you perscribe to the Gord Kluzak theory that everyone in the league is scared of every single Bruin or is this a one time misconception? If there wasn't an instigator rule, I imagine that Hartnell would have been happy to drop the gloves with Boynton. And I bet that, if they did, it would likely be a pretty entertaining tussle because they are both semi-tough, hard-nosed guys.
