Also, the hit on Ennis, since there was a lot more force to the hit, had the potentially to be much more serious injury-wise. If you want to eliminate those hits, you have to eliminate all of them.
I'm not sure if you played hockey (not meaning to insult you at all one way or the other) but if you've ever been in that spot, it's hard not to go down easy. I don't think there was intent to injure either but he was vulnerable and hit him right in the numbers. And no, the Ennis hit didn't have anywhere near the injury potential even though it was a harder hit. Richards could have been paralyzed. Ennis could have been concussed or injured his shoulder. The hits just aren't comparable. The real joke is the hit on Gerbe last year (I believe by Bourdon) wasn't suspendable.
