That's the thing, its' not that simple, or all of hockey would not be talking about these upper body hits.

I agree those calls were just made cause the hits 'looked bad'. They did, they looked like two fast skaters hitting at speeds both would need to be prepared for for someone NOT to get hurt.

Problem is, besides players who are stupid or lazy, in this day and age, there's literally no way a player can always know where everyone on the ice is at all times.
