Well, Datsyuk's fight didn't exactly win the game.
I'm just saying that I'd rather see tough guys fighting tough guys, than see our star player in a fight. Doesn't have to be against someone like Boogaard for him to get hurt.
That's what happens when no hired gun is in the lineup to take care of the dirty work. Now we have Datsyuk doing it instead.
This won't happen against most teams in the league, but against someone like Anaheim, it becomes a problem.
If we had Downy or another enforcer... they would not have been out on the ice with the Datsyuk line, they would not have been out against the Perry line. An enforcer would have changed nothing in this situation. God forbid our "soft euro players" aren't soft.
