As I said above, there are numerous possible explanations for hitting someone late besides wanting to injure that player such as not realizing the hit would be late. There are far fewer explanations for cross-checking someone in the face.
Its funny that you allow for "numerous possible explanations" for Jenner's hit other than the obvious intent to hit late when his head was turned, but you don't seem to allow for other possible explanations for bringing your stick up below your rib cage when you suddenly realize that you are about to be hit, even though you haven't had possession of the puck for a while. Little bit of a double standard?
