My point here being (as I'm sure PIM would agree) that it wasn't a hit that happened so quickly and so violently that Keller had no chance to avoid it. It's just that in a game where you can throw people into solid walls, there are ways you can very greatly increase your chance of serious injury. This was one of them. For all we know, the other guy didn't apply much force and it's the fact that Keller tried to stop and take the guy on (so far away from the boards) that resulted in him being thrown so off-balance without a chance to brace himself
