When did the league decide there was only a 2 minute penalty for a hit to the head?

yah im sure he didnt mean to hit him, since he left his feet and extended his shoulder and everything.  What a crock of shit, you would think a player would learn to have some respect for another player, especially after all the injuries lupal has had over his career.

Exactly. That was a blatant cheap shot and I’m surprised it was only a 2 minute penalty. I guess because it wasn’t a flash across the ice at full speed or the guy gets driven through the boards they only did it as a 2 minute penalty.
