It's called evolution, the equipment got better, now it's time to adapt to it and new rules.
No, it is called stop putting plastic in shoulder pads.

The ''keep your head up'' argument is the dumbest one anybody can use.
When you see a guy coming after you and you decide to lean in then yes, it is his fault. It was a terribly bad mistake of him to put his head to low to reach for the puck when someone was heading his way.

Ummmm duuur, those people don't go for the head. However either the player is very short or they lean in, such as in this example. That isn't the hitter's fault.

Based on what?

But how can anybody be for seeing a player lay motionless on the ice with some blood dripping every now and then?..Whether it's a ''clean'' hit or not is completely irrelevant. It should be penalized so that the players become more sensitive to this issue.
Then lets fine anyone who makes an open ice hit and it injures someone. No, that is dumb logic.

Injuries happen. When they are the result of an error by the person receiving the hit then there is no reason to punish the person making the hit. That is the reality.
