Where it becomes "unfair" at times is when you get a guy penalized for making a good clean effective hit. Sometimes a ref just decides the hit was too hard. the Boarding rule allows that latitude and so do charging calls when boards are not involved

I think a line is being drawn to avoid an eventual catastrophy
I don't think I've ever seen a boarding call that wasn't a hit from behind. Personally I didn't think that Markov's hit should have been a boarding call. It was a solid hit but hardly violent or too hard.
