First. It doesn't matter that Feds was on his way down bending over to make a play. The hit was delivered to his head and he couldn't protect himself and, according to the new rules, that should be an automatic suspension, no questions asked.

Second. Carcillo left his feet, which indicates that he had no intention of letting up or avoiding contact with a defenseless Fedotenko.

Third. Carcillo is a repeat offender, and the NHL (usually) takes that into account when reviewing these plays.

By not suspending Carcillo, the NHL is setting a precedent of allowing borderline hits to the head and by doing so are failing to adhere to the rules they put in place to protect players.

I'm new here, go easy on me lol.
