I actually think Head Shots should be even more punished, because during a head shot, the player that throws it can just ease up or go for the shoulder. As for the player getting hit, he has absolutely no idea of what's coming.
For the boarding like in TK's case, Van Ryan knows someone is racing after the puck and is most likely to get hit, all he has to do is keep skating and take the shoulder hit, which is also what TK was expecting. He becomes vulnerable the minute he decides to break and expose his back 100%.
I think boarding hits can be avoided a lot more by the player in the vulnerable position. The players getting head shots have simply no clue of what is coming.
