What if buddy decided to skate with his head down through the whole zone? "No one touch him his head is down boys!!!" Do you think Chris Neil would've let up on a flyer player?? Nope...

Ya we'd be pissed because one of our best players got injured... We would also be thinking... "'Man Kadri should have kept his head up". Do you remember when kessel got drilled by ohlund in his grey game as a leaf? He got absolutely decked by a clean check and people were pissed but also realized that Phil should've kept his head up. The (Philly/sens) hit wasn't late at all and it was questionable if he left his feet early. It just looked like a huge beautiful hit to me.
I'm not sure if you understand. The player left his feet, and targeted a prone player's head. He meant to hit the head. That is NOT welcome in the game. It's an absolute intent to injure, and a punk thing to do.

If he would have stayed on his feet, and connected with the chest, everyone would agree with you, but what he did was cowardly and dangerous.
