Players don't risk injury to get calls. Nobody has broken their hand by dropping a slashed stick easily. If that was a risk, you can bet it wouldn't be happening.
Again I can't see how you take out head hits unless you say no contact period...under any circumstance. If that goes in, guys will find a way to game it. Not on hits like the kronwall hit...but there will be minor cross checks, rabbit punches that happen all the time now...if you don't call it then you end up with more subjectivity...was this hit hard enough to justify that call, ect.
