LOL at this argument.
He didn't target the head? How can you even think that?
I love big hits, and I always loved when players would be nailed for not keeping their head up. But the rules have changed. You can't target someone's head. Thinking that Kronwall didn't target the head is absurd. V was looking down the whole time...Kronwall knew he was going to hit him in the head how can anyone think otherwise?
If this will be legal going forward, then I'm all for it. But shoulders to the head have been illegal for a while now and people have been suspended for less.
Again, if this means they will be consistent with these types of hits going forward, then I don't have a problem with it. That's my biggest issue with this.
