Had it been any other player it would be a non issue, but he needed to be aware that it was Hossa there. In any case, I don't think he was targeting him, but I can understand why you guys are mad.
To me it looks like he intentionally meant to give him a shot, but not to necessarily hurt him. Plays like that happen all the time and players give that extra little jolt. 9/10 its no problem, it is just what happens in sports. The problem to me is that Hansen should have known better than to do that to a player who has a history of concussions and head trauma. That is just reckless to me.
