Probably ten games for injuring a Wing with a reputation for borderline hits.
I'm kind of with you on this. If we're going to say Josi needs to keep his head up, then are we going to say that Kronwall needs to not try to duck back under a check with a guy steamrolling at him? No problem with a penalty or supplemental discipline here, it was definitely a bad hit, but there is absolutely nothing resembling consistency in the way the league handles this stuff. And it's pretty clear that guys are not going to hold up on their checks, and that the guys getting checked are not going to stop putting themselves in vulnerable situations.
