So let me get this straight. Calgary starts the game with their 4th line out there. That means Vancouver has to counter with theirs? Even if Vancouver starts with their 1st line, it doesn't mean Calgary's 4th line will automatically pound the Sedins right away after the puck drop. And if they did, they could just turtle and enjoy their 5 on 3, 7 minute PP while the Flames get game misconducts and possibly suspensions.
While I personally still want to see a line brawl in person, I think this was avoidable.
