The onus of responsibility is on both players.
no, there was plenty if body contact and the reason there was any head contact at all was because of voracek.
As seen in pics earlier in the thread he's lining the hit up 2+ seconds before he delivers it. Kronwall is setting up to apply a check "through the player"...which is what you are supposed to do. At no time does he single out the head (with something like a raised elbow or leaping to target the head), he's totally square to the body...look at rule 48 violations...there is a difference.
