Not only he had great velocity but he also jumped.

This is 2011, they are pretty much eliminating violence of hockey. Behing able to hit like that is no longer an asset. He took himself out of the play as much as he took the other guy.
For one he did not skate in Racino, his legs weren't churning (he uses his forward momentum, but he wasn't using any skating stride to make the hit). Secondly, he gained elevation after he made contact, he didn't jump into the hit. His skates are on the ice at impact.

Look at it again, you'll see I'm right.
