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.
If Ryan got two for stomping Chara should have gotten 15+ for the Max Pacioretty incident.
