I would also think that the refs watch those mismatches carefully & if DD were to nail a smaller player like Kadri it would have to be a very clean hit so that he isn't accused of a dirty hit. Then one of TO's goons would want to drop the gloves with him, then Cherry would be all over him for head hunting a smaller player & the NHL would look to suspend him. Then TO players would be looking to take out Turris or Silfverberg, tit for tat, eye for an eye.

Also keep in mind that everybody in the NHL is protecting TO players & no one would be on our side. It's probably why Smith didn't kick the **** out of Kadri when he had the chance. Just saying, DD has to be careful.
