I completely disagree with you but sadly you perfectly described the cultural gap between the NHL and ALL the other major leagues in the world. I do however agree with you on one thing: in the current context, it could, quickly, become a problem for Emelin... hence my reference to Malone potentially becoming to him what Lucic is for Komisarek.
Again: one should not have to fight after a hard and clean hit (it's insane imo) but I fear charlie is right.
