When one player on a team is taking cheap shots, not only do people feel animosity towards that person, they feel it toward the entire other team.

Now if someone blatantly takes a shot at me, I'm going to protect myself, but that doesn't mean it makes sense to have one person to do all the "protecting". It actually makes most situations worse.
I agree that you there isn't a designated goon, but the same 3-4 end up in that position usually.

That said, Mark doesn't have to be running anybody. Just because Mark can deal with player "x" doesn't mean Mark has to act like player "x".
So, what would you do if a player blind side elbows you in the head? Or your team mate? Just be happy you got a power play and move on?
