Whether or not the guy gets hurt isn't up to you. It isn't necessarily a part of your action. You shouldn't be held responsible for that. The only reason Michalek didn't end up like Dean McAmmond is because he wasn't caught at such an awkward distance from the boards. That's really the only difference. There's no way a player should be held accountable for that.
There's that and the fact McAmmond is prone to concussions. A warm breeze could concuss him.
