Would you like to see an automatic head-shot penalty in the NHL?

I wan't hits to the head out of the game, but I'm sorry when did it become okay to keep your head down?
In this example, please explain to me what Drew Doughty is supposed to do here. Taylor Hall is flying in over the blue line with his head down, his head is waist level at the top of the boards.
Drew Doughty simply has to make that play. It would be impossible to make contact without hitting his head.
This is why an automatic penalty for any head contact is just an over-simplified "solution".

Honestly if you watch guys like Eberle/Hall (just pickin on those 2 cause I've noticed it the most), they put themselves in vulnerable situations which it's literally impossible to play the body on them without making some contact with the head. Also where do draw the line, blindside hit and the head whiplashes?
