The Richards hit happened pretty quickly.

The fact of the matter is this: The NHL has spent the last two years trying to dispel the notion that the player on the receiving end of the hit is at fault for being unaware of his surroundings. They have been trying to place more responsibility on the hitter in those circumstances.

This completely contradicts that. I'd just like to know what exactly is a legal hit. Are we going by 2010 standards again? What is the deal?
