The hits just aren't comparable.
Ennis went headfirst into the boards. The potential for injury was just as great in my opinion. If you want one hit out of the game, you have to want the other as well.
And I'm not implying Richards sold anything, but he wasn't strong on his skates on that play.
Also, it has nothing to do with playing hockey or not. I'm aware of the physics in the situation.
