The players making these kind of hits know full well what they are doing. They come flying in to make the hit while their eyes are fixed and “lining up” the hit, then at the last second turn away while knowing where they will connect. Because the turn away at the last second, claim they didn’t mean it.

These kind of plays have opened the door the the NHL creating a permanent “panel” of post game refs to review plays and have to hand out disciplinary actions that the refs either miss during the game or impose harsher penalties. And it’s to the point where the fans expect further post-game action by the NHL.
