What I can't say, is that he intentionally tried to hurt him. I think he wanted to carelessly disrupt Hossa from getting the puck, so the Canucks could retain control. A poor decision, a reckless play and deserving of a suspension.
I just hope Hoss is okay. That is my biggest worry. Hawks need him healthy.
I can agree with this point of view. Although many, including the media, think suspension is too stiff for trying to disrupt another player without intention to injure, considering precedent this year thus far.
Shanahan basically assumes that halfway up on a "jumpball" the player changes his mind. I hope Hossa is okay for competition's sake.
