When it comes to standing up for a teammate, you either do it NOW or don't do it at all. By the time they show it on the scoreboard video screen it's too late to do anything.

It happened, it sucks. Life goes on.
Here's the thing. If Muzz wants to stand up for his teammate, you confront Dejardins and try and pick a fight. Don't make it so obvious that the refs have no choice but to give you the instigator and on top of that another minor for shield.

Believe me, I know Muzz is trying to do all the right things and he has in many ways. I just think he could have better resolve that matter.
