Oh man. So now if you deserve to be speared it's okay? Rules are rules. That's why there's rules for retaliation, and why you don't retaliate if you think the other guy is getting penalized.
And a late hit is inexorably dirty. That's the rules. By definition. Sure, if the hit was earlier it may not have been dirty. Of course, if Isangulov had kept his elbow down, it would have been clean, too.
That's the thing. You can't just change the rules. Jenner has been suspended before. You may disagree with that suspension but it happened, and that affects all later decisions. It sucks for Canada.
Regarding Howson: I will not accuse a GM of intentionally lying, but if you think that emotions and loyalty don't shade someone's judgment then you are living in a reality separate from the one everyone els is in.
