I never said he hit him in the head, he left his feet, it's not debateable. Both feet were off the ground when he made contact. And Mayers never made a play on the puck, just because a puck hit's someones skate doesn't mean they are free to get hit. The player must have possession of the puck before he is legal to hit. Mayers never had possession.

I'm not comparing the hit to Torres hit at all, just said it wasn't clean, and should of recieved a minor penalty. There was certainly nothing major about it.
