I don't know what to do to stop boarding, there really isn't anything that will really work. If you throw around large suspensions, people wont hit at all.

Again I hope he's okay. I really like the kid.
But the thing is, it was a brutal hit on a star player(yes that matters and should matter), and it's chance to create an example (as much as that sucks for Jones) So hits like this can be taken out of the game.

Just because someone hasn't broken their spine in the NHL, doesn't mean it's can't happen.
