I'm with you on this one. That place is made all the time and based on where Simmonds was, I don't think Ennis should have expected to get boarded like that. While Ennis did turn, Simmons made no attempt to let up on the play.

edit: Watched it a few more times. Simmons turns his skates at the same time Ennis turns, but he doesn't start driving his body until AFTER Ennis turns, nor does he let up. It was a dirty hit, no question in my mind.
