I was just trying to say, the actions (regardless of the outcome) should also be punishable. Those hits are as very identical. You could even argue that Janssen throws himself more at his victim, than Downie did.
So I guess the NHL felt that the hit is worth $2500, and then the injury is worth 20 games? Maybe? IDK I agree there's no consistency with this cases, but then again since they approach them on a case by case basis, I think a lot of it is hoping that the committee didn't wake up on the wrong side of the bed...or that your name isn't Steve Downie.
