I'm not making excuses for it. Demers went after Smyth's head. Stoll went after White's head, but did it from behind. To me, that makes Stoll's worse. If Stoll gets 1 game, Demers should get nothing. If Stoll got 2, I would have been fine with Demer's getting 1.

The point is that Smyth could see Demers coming and was at least aware of the hit. White wasn't. Both were deliberate hits to head. But to suggest that what Demers did was in any way equivalent (or even worse as TM did) is just bonkers.

My point was simply that if Stoll had not gone unpunished it's very likely that Demers never even makes the attempt.
