Now, this is the NHL rule for charging, and I'm a little puzzled...so charging is basically when you hit a guy too hard?
That's the rulebook - it's vague. But that isn't the definition by which referees call a charge. They can't say, "there, there now. you hit to hard - sit in the box". There has to be a prolonged trajectory toward a player to deliver a FORCEFUL hit (3 or more strides/acceleration) or jumping into a hit.
