That's because Joe Thornton is an A$$clown. His antics with Henrik were just pathetic. Henrik acted like an adult while Thornton puts his finger in his face. The guy is a loser.
That was a pathetic thing to do to Henrik.
...but perhaps even more pathetic was Henrik's reaction to it. Not many "adults" that I know would act like that, in the face of being blatantly disrespected. Henrik acted like a COWARD! For Christ's sake, do something! You're really going to let a grown man disrespect you like that, so blatantly and publicly? He should've done it right back in Thornton's face. If a fight ensues, fight! Who cares? You're not going to get hurt. And it's Joe Thornton, not Ben Eager. Equal trade-off.
This'll probably get me flamed, I don't care. You can't let an opponent disrespect you like that. Sets a very bad precedent.
