I'm trying to look at the hit subjectively, yet even I have a hard time wrapping around the idea of Camara going at "full speed." The vid shows that he takes a few strides after entering the zone, then heads towards the boards in anticipation of the puck's trajectory. He then makes another small turn towards the player, takes a miniature stride and then bulldozes the upcoming player who had his head down. That was not top speed.
I think the clincher for me was that Camara was not even going to be assessed a penalty until it was clear that Luza was not getting up on his own strength. These refs called the smallest things on the ice, including several that benefited the Canadian team. The only time they even thought of punishing Camara was when the stretcher came out. I think you're trying to see something that isn't there.
Otherwise, you could very well be trolling.
