If so, Cole was attempting to play the puck behind the net (slowing down in the process) when Dubinsky had full momentum.
That play happens a lot, in particular to younger defensemen who are not used to the strength NHL players have.
Rare is the more physical defenseman who does not have this happen to them regularly the first few years (Jackman did this constantly playing beside big Al).
Some of your points have merit, however cherry-picking and exacerbating common issues does not seem to be the best way of showing it.
