Exactly, if the ref had not raised his arm to call the penalty, I am not sure if everyone would of stayed quiet. But with the penalty, it gave them a 5 on 3.. take the #, take him on on the next road trip.

Then again, if that would of happened to someone from my team, I would of went ape **** penalty or no penalty.

You get in his face, shove him a couple of times and see if he's willing to go, and if so you go. That way you don't lose your PP, since it would be incidental fighting majors.

That may or may not work; in practice, it would probably get you a 2-minute for instigating, and maybe more.

But that's not my original point. My original point is that in fact this has nothing to do with "guts". Frankie Bouillon or Tommy Kostopoulos are not afraid to fight people. Neither are Steve Begin, Mike Komisarek, Max Pacioretty, Max Lapierre, Ryan O'Byrne or even Guillaume Latendresse. Really, fighting (unless it's against a BGL or some monster like that) takes less real "guts" than blocking a 100 mph slapshot, or going to the front of the net knowing one will receive crosschecks a high percentage of the time.

I'm pretty sure that fighting Gauthier won't even deter him from making dirty hits. He knows he has to fight from time to time. What will more likely deter him is a 10 game suspension.

I was thinking the same. This is not the first time Gauthier hits with the intent to injure.

Yeah, but it looks like the league doesn't think that way, unfortunately.

It's at least relatively consistent with other suspensions of similar events.

Only 5 games? Unbelievable! Steve Downie got 20 games for his hit on Dean McAmmond.

I was hoping Gauthier, a repeat offender and reknowned dirtball, would get at least 10 games.

I liked how we Boo'ed Bettman during the All Star Ending.

5... who cares..? Should've given him 15 to 20 game and make the coach lose 200,000$ of salary.
