Sorry, but the last time I checked, the jaw was considered part of the head area. And, given the evidence that impact to the jaw can also cause concussion, AFAIC, it's a penalty, and should treated as such. Didn't mean to hit him like that? Great...players are supposed to responsible for their sticks, why shouldn't they be responsible for other ways they can impact an opposing player. I'm not calling for a suspension on Phaneuf. I'm not even saying it was a dirty play. But, that, to me, is a penalty. I'd rather see that play called for a penalty than all of the stupid hooking and interference ticky-tack calls that get made.
