In case you missed my reply to another poster in the +/- thread who compared our lack of response to the lack of response by Boston to the Cooke/Savard hit:
You're exactly right. Boston didn't do anything immediately after that hit, and they were ridiculed by their fans and media for weeks after. Now they're loaded with guys that'll rip your head off if you **** around. They haven't had a problem since.
We didn't do anything after the Steckel or Tampa Bay hit on Sid. Our pacifist fans and owners chalked it up to being 'unfortunate'. We got weaker and smaller since then. And since then we've had Letang and now Geno knocked out with concussions. How coincidentally 'unfortunate'.
