Agreed, the game moves quick, I`m all up for finishing checks however, late hit, suspendable hit according to the rules and he`ll get suspended and as you stated, anyone here backing Canada, if this were a Canadian on the receiving end, and his tournament had come to an end as a result of this exact same hit, same context, we`d all be screaming long term suspension too.

What bothered me on top of it all is the fact that Team Canada has already struggled with discipline, and the refs have called everything, some deserved, some not, and the fact that Jenner did this tells me, the message hasn`t/hadn`t sunk through to him yet.
