This city was absolutely blood-thirsty and hell-bent on getting revenge for the Naslund injury just before that game too, and if there ever was a "be careful what you wish for" situation for Canucks fans, THAT WAS IT. It could certainly be argued that it was fan fury and expectation that whipped up that situation into the ugly (although ultimately accidental) result that transpired.

I would think we would have learned from past mistakes.
There's a big difference between wanting someone to sucker punch Keith in the back of the head when he's unawares versus just wanting someone to make him stop being a *****, man up, and fight. If he's willing to throw flying elbows when someone doesn't expect it, he should be willing to drop the gloves when someone does.
