Hansen Punishment - Suspended 1 Game

Looking at it live I didn't really see what happened. Most replays make it look fairly incidental, as if he went up for the puck and then realized at the last minute he couldn't get it. I certainly understand how some people could see a bit more intent, but in my opinion it was completely accidental.

Honestly anyone saying the Hawks had it coming is being a bit of an ass, if it was Keith it would be one thing but Hossa is not a dirty player and in no way deserves a concussion. Even though I hate the Hawks we all know how it sucks to have a star player injured, and even though I don't think think it's comparable to Keith on Sedin you've got to have some sympathy for Chicago. I hope Hossa's OK.

Hope Hossa is ok.

No supplementary discipline for Hansen.

Toews is a little *****

none.

Seen worse intentional elbows/forearms followed through on a hit along the boards than that.

It was a bad call. Hossa got Torres'd and now his brain is scrambled. Hansen barely touched him in order to get the puck out of the air.

I voted for a cookie. His feelings are probably hurt because he's upset that Marian is injured. I know he didn't mean to hurt Marian. Maybe a cookie will make him feel better.

Hope Marian isn't badly injured and is able to come back quickly.

Nothing should happen.

I have all the sympathy in the world for Hossa. I have absolutely zero sympathy for Chicago. They can go **** themselves.

Fine. I think he should've stayed in the box for 5 mins or been thrown out. But it doesn't warrant further discipline.

I honestly feel bad for Hossa; he's gotten the **** end of the stick when it comes to injuries. But there was no intention from Hansen to strike him. If anything, the league's lack of action wrt Cooke slicing Karlsson shows that if there's no intent then there won't be punishment.

I love Hossa, he's one of the good ones. But there's no penalty there.

Hope Hossa is ok. As I said in the PGT, if Hossa is concussed off that inoccuous of a hit, you have to be concerned about the risk he is taking by continuing to play hockey.

I could see a fine, just because of the player that got hurt and the league trying to cut down on contact with the head. It was a bit exuberant on Hansen's part but pretty clearly unintentional. Was really surprised Hossa went down actually, it didn't seem like significant enough contact to cause anything close to a concussion.

I'm a little worried for Hossa if that's all it takes for him to get knocked out. I mean, the Torres hit was a hell of a whollip but this was pretty innocuous. Hopefully he was just trying to get a call or was a little scared and stayed down as a precaution. Coach Q said he seemed OK after the game so hopefully he doesn't miss anytime. Hate, hate, hate brain injuries.

At most a fine, probably nothing. I really don't think that was intentional, he was just trying to get the puck.

Hossa is a great player and a class act, I really hope he's okay(him being on my fantasy team notwithstanding).

They should rescind the 2 minute minor, it wasn't even a legit penalty IMO. It was just a freak play, there was no intent to injure on that. Nobody likes to see players getting knocked out with concussions.

A fine for recklessness. It was an accident and he didn't even make contact to the head. It looked like he got Hossa's back.. and maybe neck area?

But that was Matt Cooke. Obviously he'll get the benefit of the doubt. Hansen on the other hand? Not sure if a lifetime ban is long enough.

It's got to be worrying for Blackhawks fans that a nothing play like that would re-trigger concussion symptoms for Hossa. It looks like he might not have fully recovered, 9 months later.

Hawks fan should look at a couple of videos of Keith and his flying elbows. That should help them differentiate between intentional hits and accidental hits.

Heart says nothing, head says a fine since it's Hansen and he plays for the Canucks.

Is he actually having symptoms? If so that's really unfortunate, but you can't just suspended people because the play resulted in an injury. It's hockey for FFS! It's a contact sport. There wasn't anything illegal with the ''hit''.
