hockey was always an eye for an eye, and people never pulled $hit like that because it was common knowledge that if, for instance, domi takes out neid's with a cheap shot, sundin or cujo would be leaving in an ambulance within the next 5 minutes after him. Instead, thanks to the instigator penalties, domi gets a slap on the wrist - "you can practice with your team, you just can't play for 10 games" - big f'ng deal. If he knew someone on the devils was going to turn around and break sundin's leg or something in retaliation, he wouldn't have done it. The fact that he did tells me he KNEW nobody would retaliate. That's a lack of physical presence and a lack of leadership on the devils side.
