You didnt answer my question, I'll continue...

ryane clowe who'd been very physical towards our top forwards in that series in '11, had run his mouth about wanting to "line up next to kronwall" after his hit on heatley, and had 5 pts in 4 games against us to boot...

Kronwall nails him with an unpenalized hit, draws a retaliatory penalty, and swings momentum to the Wings in an elimination game.

Clowe didnt score a pt in game 6, didnt play game 7.

But you want kronwall to negate all that by having a good ol' playoff donnybrook against a guy with 25 lbs on him. Sin bin for 5 minutes, in an elimination game. And keep in mind, kronwall was our best defenseman in those playoffs.

But to think that all he had to do was throw a retaliatory elbow and he would've been fine in your book. Shame
