Very similar to the Keith hit on Daniel,. but Hansen disguised it a lot better. Guys he lead with his forearm, there was never any intention to swat the puck. If he did, he would have lead with his glove. This was definately a dirty play, not as obvious as Keith's elbow but still one that shouldn't be in the NHL. That being said I am fully behind Hansen for what he did.

Dirty or not, these Blackhawks needed someone to step up to them for what they've been getting away with the last 3 years and that's dirty plays. They won the Cup that way, they knocked Daniel Sedin out and now they finally get a taste of their own medicine. We may not have broken their streak, but Hansen's hit may have allowed the Sharks to do so.

Someone give Hansen an award. Suspensions are a joke in this league - a 5 game ban on Keith for what, 20 missed games and our playoff chances for Daniel Sedin? That is not a fair trade off and justice is not served with a short suspension. I hate to say it, but "an eye for an eye" is much fairer. It's the only way goons will learn that they can't get away with this crap.


The only similarity was a puck in the air....the rest of your analysis is way off snd exaggerated and then you congratulate and condone the so called violent retribution style play...

Reel yourself in bud.

The NHL officiating and supplementary discipline is bush league.

I'm all for a fight, but the fact that two guys can punch one another in the skull and in bolligs case cheap shot and jump Weise, while Hansen, a clean record free player hits hossa with a Kleenex and gets suspended is without explsnation

No he kept his arm down on the hit on Cooke. It was more of a vulnerable position hit like Torres on Seabrook IMO. Questionable and on the line but not malicious like the hit on Daniel.


So, you are completely ignoring that Cooke legally hammered him at the other end of the ice befor this happened?!? That was targeting the head and as malicious as it gets. Watch it again and watch him just before he hits Cooke. He had every intention of taking cookes head off. Just like he did with Daniel. He should be branded a repeat offender, but he plays for a big American city. He can kill someone trying to stab them with his skate and shanny would call it an unfortunate hockey play.

I'm putting together a list of the criteria to be a "real" Canuck's fan. So far I have this:

1. I cheer for the Canucks, whatever happens.
2. I never say anything bad about the Canucks.
3. I know the difference between "real" fans and posers just by how they post on the CDC or where they sit at GM Place.
4. I wouldn't dream of leaving a game before it ended, even if it meant missing a train, ferry or a threesome with the wife and her hot best friend?
5. I make 10+ posts a day and I have over 10,000 posts on the CDC, so my Canuck "street-cred" is huge. Go away noob!
6. No one F's with me. I train in MMA. I'm really tough. I'll curb stomp yo' donkey.
7. I make a tonne of $$$$.
8. I'm witty.
9. If it meant missing a game, I wouldn't study for a midterm.
10. I roll with a guy who has a wicked car.
11. I like to post "source?" a lot.

There was intent, you can see his movement shift... CDC and their rose coloured glasses. I thought he would get 2, so 1 is fair. I just wish it was Keith so that it could've been worse and 5 games... ;)

Anyone else notice that Hansen is on the injury list at TSN? Just says "undisclosed" injury. I`m sure it's a mistake, but weird.

How come no one has mentioned that Hossa actually backed up into Hansen? This is a chance for Gillis and AV to step up and get fine to stand up for the Canucks but AV won't. He has absolutelty zero passion and how do you expect your own players to play with heart when AV doesn't communicate with them and shows no passion whatsoever?


Aah yes so this is AV`s fault too.... its impressive how some people on here can twist everything to make it his fault.

The Cooke hit at the other end was a more dangerous hit IMO. Keith is bent over and in a very vulnerable position. If you watch the hit on Cooke and slow it down frame by frame you can see Keith never raises his arm and connects with the very top of cookes shoulder. It looks like his head in real time but its not.. It's more of a raffi Torres type charge IMO. A little cheap sure, but not even close to the hit on Daniel.

If that was a direct hit to cookes head he would not have gotten up that easy. He was coming in like a freight train.

I'm gonna take off my homer glasses and say that the hit was reckless to say the least. If it had happened to Daniel, our reaction would probably be the same and calling it questionable. By no means is the play any worse than Keith's elbow because at least the puck was in the vincinity of the players involved. It looked to me that Hansen realized he couldn't have won the puck battle as Hossa had position on him and so he tried to take the body instead, but he was already in the upward motion so he contacted Hossa with whatever was maneuverable at that time, which happened to be his forearm and elbow to the back of Hossa's head.

By definition of the principal point of contact, it seems to fall within the premises of hits to the head. However, I do not think that there was intent to injure but rather a reactionary play to hinder the opposing player in a puck battle. Any disciplinary action should be light as Hansen does not have prior history and it appeared to be just a reckless hockey play.

Hope Hossa is alright.

I haven't seen a more accurate assessment of this play anywhere on these boards! +1!! You are absolutely correct, and believe me, I was there, right behind the Hawk's bench.
Like I have stated previously, I don't think there was any ill intent on Hansen's part, but you have to know where you are on the ice in relation to other players and refs, much in the same way that you have to always be in control of your stick.
Look at it this way...if you have no criminal record and go out and kill someone, you are still guilty of murder. Hansen got what he deserved, a much lighter sentence than someone with a history, but a game to make him realize that the play was reckless and he needs to be held accountable, intentional or not.

Oh and BTW, I may tend to be a Hawk's fan (Vancouver is my 2nd favorite team) but I was one of the first to say that Keith got what he deserved for his hit on Sedin. That was intentional by a star player who also had NO history. The call on the ice that game was also much more severe than what Hansen got last night.
All in all, I have one concern about Hansen.
Earlier this season he crosschecked one of the refs. I read Hansen's comments about that (there was no league action, which was completely correct) But Hansen stated that he never saw the ref because he was focused on Ryan Clowe and actually didn't really recall hitting the ref. It seems like he had tunnel vision or something.
Now reading his statement last night about the hit on Hossa, he once again doesn't seem to remember anything expect going for the puck.
"We were both kind of jumping for (the puck)," Hansen said. "He grabs the puck first and as I'm coming down I kind of land on him a little bit. Apparently, I hit him in the back of the head is what the ref was telling me once I come down. It's hard for me to tell what really happened."

This is concerning to me, as all hockey players knows that they needs to be aware of everything around them (players, refs, stations ect). It bothers me that he get so focused that he is unaware of his surroundings and has no real memory of it after the incident.

I think the suspension neglects the fact that things happen pretty fast....not sure what Hansen should have done "differently" on that play. For illegal checks there is an opportunity for the player to make the right choice (let up, keep elbows down etc) habits that the players need to instill into their play to make the game safer.

What should Hansen (and other players) learn from this suspension? I just don't see the lesson here, just seems punitive without any point and based solely on the end result of an accident.

Some have their homer glasses on. Some have their anti-homer glasses on.

Not sure which is worse.

I don't feel this deserved a suspension and wouldn't if it was our guy it happened to. If incidental hits to the head are one game suspendable then the league really needs an overhaul because there are a lot of players that should be suspended this week alone. Get crackin'

Bottom line is, if it wasn't Hossa, it wouldn't be a suspension.

Just using the standards most people use. If a 4th liner was injured, nobody would barely care.

ps: not condoning that methodology btw, just an observation. It's how the fans would likely react, and it's how the NHL reacts.

i dont believe that for a second. even taking an elbow pad to the helmet in the right spot can stun anyone. ive had several head injuries ranging from intense car accident, to aluminum pike pole smacking me in the hardhat, to a minor fall snowboarding. sometimes a smaller hit in a sweetspot will stun you more than a major one. then sometimes the effects of the smaller hit dont last as long and the major one gives you problems for months. I dont know why that is, im not a doctor or scientist but ive had the experiences and know you cant judge a head injury from watching it.


Go punch someone with a forearm then. Go to it. Tell a friend you want to do it to the back of his head without a run up. Make sure you've got padding and he's got a helmet. You could do it all god damn day and you'll stop because your bored or maybe your forearm hurts. No one in the history of the world has been injured in the way Hansen supposedly hurt Hossa. No fist or elbow made contact by the way. Even Chicago media agrees on that.

No concern with Bollig punching Weise in the head? deliberate intent to injure a player who was in a vulnerable position. Face it people Hansen got the suspension because it was Hossa he hit, if it was a joe lunchpail guy nobody in the NHL office would have cared.

Why was his elbow at a 90 degree angle if he was going for the puck? He started reaching out for the puck, then when it was obvious that he wasn't going to get it he bent his elbow and gave Hossa a straight forearm to the back of the head. If this happened to a Canuck you guys would be calling for the guys head and the 1 game wouldn't have been enough. And trust me, it isn't enough.

The Bollig/Weise thing was a totally different issue. Weise ran through Marcus Kruger with a vicious hit along the boards (but yes, it was clean) and Bollig took exception. Once the gloves were dropped, all bets were off as far as a call for hits to the head, if you fight, you except that possibility. Bollig took the instigator on that one, and the Hawks wound up on the PK. Weise wasn't hurt in the fight, so I don't see what your issue is with this.

Also, I have yet to see anyone reply to my concern about Hansen not having the wits about him to be aware of his surroundings on the ice. To me, that is a more worrisome issue at this point.

I don't understand the suspension. Giving him a suspension to start shows that they thought the hit was intentional to some degree. To me, if the hit to the head was intentional, one game surely is not severe enough a penalty. But, if they think he did not mean to hit him, why even one game?

Give it a rest, tough guy. You realize striking to the back of the head in MMA, a sport dedicated to hitting people in the head, is illegal. Apparently it's a tender area, but I'm no doctor or nothing.
