Seems wrong to get less if you get lucky and don't injure the player.
There are variables to take into account. Player's reputation, the history, injuries, etc. Sure it was a different era, but I offer the Chelios hit on Propp. No punishment was issued on that play, no penalty, no suspension just mumbo jumbo from Brian O'Neill which increased the atrophy in integrity of the NHL. The purpose of Shanahan was to eliminate inconsistencies in these rulings but that was a joke from the outset since it is impossible to eradicate that from a ruling body.
