Yea, I think ultimately it was smart they didn't do anything stupid, or lose their focus too much, but it seemed like going that far out of your way to make a dangerous hit on a guy like Hejduk, is usually a no no.

If it was McLeod, or someone they were pissed at I'd get it, but it wasn't just the normal finishing your check on Hejduk because he's there kind of play. He kind of targeted him for a big hit. You just don't do that to guys like Hejduk, who are in that Lady Byng mold of Sakic or Robataille.
