That aside, I don't think any of this has any real effect on whether players will throw hits against us. Even if Downie gets dropped by Hendriks, Gaustad...whoever, is that really going to stop another hit like that on Josi? Is that going to dissuade any other team's POS (i.e. Cooke, etc?).
And don't take this comment the wrong way but ask Steve Moore his opinion on this? His hit on Naslund, was clean, even Naslund admitted it, but his team took care of the problem and unfortunately he had a career ending injury as the result. Like I said earlier with Tootoo/Hemsky/Moreau, hits happen, clean or dirty but guys stand up for their teammates. Moreau did it the first time Tootoo hit the ice. That's all I'm asking for and it never happens.
