Clarification on the visor/fighting rule

ok im really confused right now....

a few months ago Domi and Doig had a fight right before the fight Doig takes off his helmet and starts fighting. all he gets is a 5 minute major.

but also a few months ago iginla and mccormick faught and iginla didnt take off his visor and got 2 more minutes for instagating.

what is the rule?

You are involved in a fight while wearing a visor and you get two. and then if you are involved in a fight and take the visor off before the fight you dont get anything more then 5 right?

what was Cherry talking about Domi getting more then 5 with the visor on?

As I understand it, if you instigate while wearing a visor, you get an extra two...but that's the only difference afaik.

It's if you get in a fight and you instagatied it i believe.

ok so if Iginla instagates a fight he gets 5 for the fight. 2 for instagating and 2 for fighting with a visor on?

if they make visors mandetiory they have to get rid of this rule.

Either that or they make sure they doff the helmets before dancing if they have an opportunity.

They'll just make it a rule that u have to remove the visor before the fight. That's what they do in the Dub, I believe. Or maybe that was just two guys who wanted to do it that way.

Apparently, the rule is.......and I learned this after Scott Hartnell was handed this penalty from the refs in a recent Vancouver game.

The obvious 5 minute major for fighting, the 2 minute instigating penalty, and also an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for wearing a face shield, while instigating. In other words, the instigator gets 9 Pims, and the person he is fighting gets 5.
