As someone who has spent the last several years listening to all the leagues talk about headshots and concussions and protecting players however, I think they're a bunch of liars and hypocrites. They're hasn't been a more blatantly dangerous and illegal headshot that I can readily recall. Apparently Rule 48 should actually read:
Because there is nothing in that rule the way it's written and has been interpreted to this point that defends this hit.
The defense is "targeted" and the victims lack of protecting himself.
Kronwall is shoulder to chest if voracek just stands up. That's not a targeted head shot.
