I still don't see it as a difference.
If hits like that are illegal to the point of deserving suspensions, and rightfully so, then so should hits to the head be.
Also, most hits to the head come when players aren't even looking in the same direction, they don't know the hit is coming. Whereas in this situation, the player very well knows he's about to get hit yet puts himself in a very vulnerable position.
If the good old saying of ''keep your head up'' applies when players get destroyed after a head shot, then why aren't we saying ''don't turn your back'' when a player is rushing for puck knowing someone is racing behind him.
I think both these type of hits should be banned, not just one. That's what I find stupid.
