Funny, I don't recall Crombeen throwing a punch from his back like Marshall.

But yeah, I can see your point.

You don't have to go back that far, havoc. In fact, you don't have to go back at all. Just ask them what they think about Lecavalier's punches later in the same game.

I see nothing wrong with what Rinaldo did. Clark would have mounted him and kept punching, so Crombeen got of easy imo.

Crombeen didn't throw punches from his back... also, Brashear was a douchebag even though he was a great fighter, no question.

Here is the difference between what Rinaldo did and Vinny did. I don't have a problem with either, but if you think Rinaldo threw a cheap shot, then you have to call out Vinny even worse.

And I have no problem with the fight. People talk about the code but forget that hair pulling, eye gouging, kicking and stick swinging were once commonplace in the game long before the instigator rule.

I also grew up on Clark and Domi so I guess I saw this a lot early on

I have no problem with a debate over Rinaldo's last shots, however, the masses of knuckleheads on this site now acting like this is the worst thing they've ever seen is embarassing. Is it all the 'new' NHL fans, or have all of us who have been fans of the game since the 80's/90's forgotten what the NHL used to be like? I think the anti-Flyers fans are playing it up a bit too much, but if this many people feel what Rinaldo did there was crossing the line then it just shows how far us fans have come since even the late 90's/early 00's in terms of fighting.
