As Prongo mentioned though, high sticking would be hard to enforce. How much of it is instinct trying to get you away from the object coming at your face?
Yes this, it really is hard at full speed, and guys are good at it.
Also I think they should draw a distinction between guys who dive who've legitimately been high-sticked, tripped, or hooked, and are looking to draw attention to it vs. guys who throw their head back as if shot and then you see the replay and they weren't even touched, at all. I seem to recall Carcillo doing this more than once. That is truly embarrassing.
