Now, I've seen all the rule quoting and comparisons to other hits that were suspensions, and so it seems it could be.

But I don't think it warranted a suspension. I just don't. Regardless of whether Hammer was hurt or not. Hossa shoved him. Deserved a major, and it was called.

But I don't think it was as hard and deliberate so as to deserve a suspension. It wasn't "a light tap and Hamhuis blew a tire" though as some claim. Those claims piss me off. It was a moderately hard shove to try to prevent him from getting the puck. I just think they were just far enough from the boards, and under the crucial moment of needing that puck and having a chance to get it with a shove it didn't need to be a suspension. But I understand those who say that since they are supposedly cracking down on those plays, they are being wildly inconsistent.
