Players most/least likely to take a retaliatory penalty

Did a search, came up empty. Thought it might be an interesting topic on players' tempers and guys that just can't help but get sucked into it...

On Pittsburgh, Evgeni Malkin and James Neal don't really care much for getting handled and often get caught with their hand in the cookie jar (at least as far as non-tough guys, non-agitators go) in terms of whacks and face-washes after the fact...

On the other hand, you could light Tyler Kennedy's pants on fire and he probably wouldn't shove you...not because he doesn't care, he just does a pretty good job of staying clean out there...

Tuukka Rask has quite a temper on him, but it rarely translates to PIMs of course...

It's a topic I don't think I've seen before, so I figure it's better than another under/overrated thread or today's top-5 players vs. yesterday's top-5 players...feel free to contribute or disregard...

D & H Sedin will not do a thing.

Kassian will give you a concussion.

Ryan White. He's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Howard gets pissed when he feels wronged, so he is probably the most likely player on Detroit to take a retaliation penalty. Him and Franzen.

Ryan White was flying off the handle if you looked at him the wrong way earlier this year. He's calmed down lately...

Kovalev used to be awful for it.

Dustin Brown doesn't care 1 bit when he is targeted. Just bounces up after being hit and gets on with the game

Malkin is definitely the most likely.

The Sedins probably are the least likely.

Jackets have two with short fuses, Boll and Dorsett, though both have gotten a bit better, this year.

Malkin for sure , he could take a page out of Dats book and wait a shift to to nail someone. Though Dats has taken a liberty or two in his time. He is just smarter about it.

Lucic and Horton both don't take **** and would rather handle problems themselves rather than let refs just send opponents to the box.

I recall the twins taking some bad retaliation penalties against Bolland.

This has Lucic all over it. He doesn't retaliate, he escalates.

Kyle Okposo and Matt Moulson won't hurt a fly.

Edit: I take that back, Kyle Okposo might hurt a fly as he's tripping over it trying to get out of the fly's way.
