When Peverly faked the slash at Holtby, and Holtby just stood there... who looked like the wuss?

It's not Sedin's fault the ref didn't call a penalty on an obvious penalty. Now, if you ask me, should some other player on the Canucks have then gone out and rammed Marchand's head into the ice? Sure, but that's a different thing.

Again, if a player wants to be totally undisciplined and take a shot you let him take it.
It was 5-2 with 90 seconds left in the 3rd when this incident happened. Not about a PP at that point, it was about making a statement and showing some backbone. Sedin did neither.

If the score/time left was different, I'd agree. It wasn't though, and Sedin got fully punked.
