Disappointing.

Right. As to what Turk said, or implied, if you're caught w/ your head down at 30mph, your ass is grass. The reason he's talking a/b kids learning to skate w/ their head up is - many of the headshots we see are blindside. Onus is on the player throwing the hit in that instance, no argument. Other times we see D-men moving the puck and turning into the boards, instead of protecting themselves. As well as players moving into areas w/ the puck w/ their head down, where they should EXPECT to be smoked, but still do it.
