You can facepalm all you want, it doesn't make your argument any better.

Do you realize that 1 second (it was likely more than that) in a game of hockey is a lot of time? Goalies react to incoming shots in fractions of that.

When you're going for a hit, your whole body is primed & alert, ready to react to whatever happens. Jenner had plenty of time to abort hit/slow down.

Shalunov didn't intentionally crosscheck the opponent in the face, how hard is this to understand? He saw the opponent coming at him just before the impact and raised his stick to protect himself.

And Jenner's hit was much more than "a bit too late".
