It was a careless/reckless elbow/forearm to the head, which is a hit to the head no matter how you try to spin it. Hits to the head are illegal, and this hit to the head caused an injury. there will be dicipline.
Hossa is one of the Hawks I like so I hope he is Ok but if the hit wasn't to a star player I doubt that there is even a two minute penalty. These type of plays happen all of the time. I saw far worse in the Oilers/Kings game right after this one where RNH got rocked with his head down and an LA player got nailed watching the puck.
Because Hansen is a third liner and Hossa is a star, I think that he gets a game.
