Really? I don't think Colton Orr is exactly the type to be intimidated by anyone else (see his tilt with John Scott). He did what a player of his calibre always does - went after Plekanec's knee, then grabbed the nearest red sweater (Gionta). When Bourque showed up to try and pull Orr off Gionta (I guess a "real tough guy" like Orr feels the need to go after the smallest guy on the ice) Rene got a sucker punch for his efforts. Maybe, I suppose, if your hypothetical tough guy got to Orr/Gionta first then he might have prevented it, but if he's as slow as most guys like Orr is probably wasn't going to be him.
And of course the league let him off scott free. That's the problem....
