I hate the instigator rule and I hate the visor rule even more. You want players to wear visors and yet you punish them when they don't have the time to throw off your helmet during a fight.
Fights are supposed to be spur of the moment. You are supposed to use them to show your support of a teammate. Instead they are like a side show with guys needing to ask for it first. Does a guy like Matt Cooke ask before he elbows a guy in the head? Obviously penalties and suspensions aren't enough cause they keep doing it.
And last night's hit was clean but it's hard to know that when a teammate is lying on the ground. Still I can almost stomach the instigator but I can't STAND the visor rule.
