If that was Lidstrom instead of Cole, he wouldn't of even got a fine, probably not even a penalty, and you know that's true.
From www.mahercorlabs.com/concussions.htmCauses of a Concussion:

Impact to the Jaw: If there is not adequate cushioning of the jawbones, they can be pushed into the base of the skull and even the brain cavity. This dangerous blow can disrupt brain function and activity causing a concussion as well as other skull damage.

PS Lidstrom doesn't need to make hits like Cole's.
