Seriously though, Clowe is a guy who sticks for all of his teammates and does it by beating the offending player up badly. That's a pretty nice thing to have around your star players. Ask Gretzky about McSorley. There are certainly repercussions for running the stars when Clowe looms. Just saying.
Please show me the last time this happened, bonus points if you can find one that didn't end up with a goal against his own team on the ensuing powerplay.

Also, McSorely specifically did not have to deal with the instigator penalty, which was exactly my criteria.

That penalty is worth taking sometimes, I'll admit, but its VERY rare, and is almost never done.
