I've been "pancaked" probably 3-4 times this year.

(He had me lined up, no I did not turn around with my head down. I didn't have enough time to do anything.) He hit the side of my head, and my ear got the worst of it. I made the pass, the puck got out of the zone, and I got right back up so the hit really didn't mean ****. It hurt but you obviously have to shake that kind of crap off.
Not to be an ass but if you keep skating and pick the up in the conrer you might not be hit or targeted to much i know when i go into corners i keep my head turned at all times looking behind me and i keep the legs moving to either speed up or slow down to dig it out but a dead stop is hard to recover from becuase the player coming to hit you knows you have no where to go.
