I think this is equal though, I mean if someone rides on (pre-injury) Derian Hatchers back is the ref gonna be more leniant than if its on Pavel Datsyuk's back? I would think so, its the way things are for all players because it will seem like less of a penalty because Hatch may not go down but most likely Pavel will because he doesn't have the strength to do it, thats the price you pay for being a big guy, but its better than diving or something to get those calls.
