Hossa

    Hossa

    Just wondering. Some goof named Hansen on Vancouver, gives Hossa a fore-arm wack to the back of his head and knocks him out of the game. The guy has to know who it is, and yet does it to him anyway. 

     

    So the question is, is this just a regular, rough play on a guy that has scored 2 goals that night, or did someone say to this lesser light, wack him if you can?  My take is that the coach or previous coaches have said to do this to a vulnerable guy, therefore this is intentional. 

     

    I dont' know if anyone cares, but I hate seeing the talent get taken out of the game by trash, and not the other way around.

    Re: Hossa

    I doubt ANY coach in the NHL is telling his players to go out and intentionally target the head.  Hansen will probably get a couple games though because when you look at the hit, the ONLY body part that he hit with his elbow was Hossa's head!

    Isn't Hansen the one who speared McQuaid in the groin and ran over Ference at the end of game 7?

    Looked like a careless move by Hansen.  I don't know if it is suspendable.  Remeber Ference's suspension?  We may see the same kind of argument here from Shanahan.  It's not that he tried to hit the guy in the head, but it's his responsibility to avoid hitting people in the head when doing something like reaching to knock down a puck.

    It was a bad play all the way around but I don't Vigneault would encourage that kind of play. I don't like Elaines response that there should be no suspension, not shocking he thinks his players are angels.

    DrCC, I feel the exact same way about the play. All players are expected to be responsible for their sticks so they should also definitely be responsible for what they do with their bodies. Malicious intent or not, the play was carelessly dangerous.

    Re: Hossa

    If he was trying to knock down the puck why was he using his elbow? The puck from what i saw wasn't behind Hossa's head. Looks like an intentional mistake to me. Sorta like this is for Sedin type mistake.

    Exactly, i've never seen a coach who lobby's more for suspensions or non suspensions more than him, maybe Tortorella but Vigneault is bad.

    At least when Torts is mad he usually has a valid point. Vigneault is a dolt.

    I would put Ray Shero, as far as GMs, at the top as well.

    One game is kinda what I expected, 'cause it's Hossa. 

    Watch the replay several times, the puck is up in the air, both players reaching for it, a flail by Hansen, and his elbow hits the back of Hossa's head, which, since it's like an eggshell, sends him down on the ice like he's been shot.

    No malicious intent, just a careless play, and when a star gets hit in the head, someone has to pay.

    Intent is unknown.  I've reached for a lot of things in my life.  In doing so, I've never cranked someone so hard in the head that they were driven forward.

    Brendan Shanahan broke it down pretty good, you can see both players reaching for the puck, then Hansen realizes he wont get it so he goes for Hossa head.

    I'm not a league disciplinarian for the NHL, I just act like one on this forum.

    However, that Shanahan guy is a league disciplinarian for the NHL - and I thought his explanation was exactamundo.
