Ovi is also a dirty player, how many cheapshots has he dealt out his career? Why is the McDonagh hit an isolated incident (arguably also, that was a clean hit, though I don't believe it was). Do you see any repeat offenders here? Other than Lucic, who again had clean hits, these players didn't cheap shot the team again. Every team takes a lot of cheapshots......I don't see what you're trying to prove really.
That this team gets repeatedly run and does nothing about it. They are always on the short end of the battle of attrition, which matters all of the time but especially when the whistles go away.

Maybe, just maybe, if there was any potential for retaliation teams would think twice. As they seem to do when they aren't playing the Rangers. The pattern has been established. Every team scouting the Rangers is aware of their stance by watching the tape, and knows they can ride the line, even go over the line, with no repercussions.
