I have watched this replay so many times I am sick of it, but clearly he is being turned around on one foot by the linesman. You can discount it all you want to but the linesman spun him around, period. To say it played no role in the incident is just wrong.
Had Bolland's skate hit Angelidis in the shin area, I would agree that it was 100% the result of being spun around.

Meanwhile Koverko hits Kostitsyn in the face with a stick, draws blood, and gets 4 minutes with 1:46 left to play. So tell me that those standards make any sense whatsever. An "automatic" penalty without considering all the circumstances is senseless.
The penalty for a high stick that draws blood is 4 minutes, with no regard to the point in the game in the infraction occurred - what would you have had them call?
