So then why can't some of these players adapt to this? A rule against headshots has been in place in some form since 2010-11. So why can't they stop themselves from picking off heads? I concede that hockey is a fast and rough game, and some awful hits are going to be unavoidable. But those instances should be rare, not a once-a-week occurrence. If players are really as good at adapting as they claim, then now it's up to them to adapt to this. Either take the body or abort -- for the betterment of the game and their fellow man.
