Correct, it would seem all agree to the initial elbowing penalty as called on the ice.... bad decision.
Personally I can also agree that many players (regrettably most anymore) will embellish on many hits. I don't think it's irrelevant however, as it's increased frequency speaks of the game, it's players and what they are becoming.
