Most plays that cause concussions can at least be considered "hockey plays" or "checking" in a sense. Often times, concussions are just the result of hits gone wrong...
Stepping on a guys skate is never right, and there's never any sort of argument for why it should or should not be considered a dirty play, unlike plays that lead to concussions...
I'm sure it's something Bobby regretted instantly, and is something he'll learn from.
I think he's more pointing out the fact that when suspendable things happen against the ducks it goes unnoticed but if it's a duck player doing it everyone tweets about it and all the fan boys come out and cry about how dirty the ducks are.
