As per Darren Dreger and numerous others on Twitter. On mobile so I can't post the tweet.

After a vicious headhunter like Jannik "the Deadly Dane" Hansen targeted him, it's so nice to see that Hossa's flopping on the ice and leaving lead to a twenty minute concussion. My favourite part is how they refused to comment on his status before the verdict was given out. What an honorable, trustworthy team the Blackhawks are!

Miracle recovery my arse. He bumped his head ever so slightly. I'm sure everyone here has bumped their head against a wall one time or another without a helmet.

This is something the league should address.

Why does the hearing need to happen rightaway? Why can't they wait 1 week to see the status of the injury and then make the calls. Specifically on a minor one like that. Jannik should have been allowed to play against Dallas and them maybe be suspended for the next game. Who care if he misses this one of the next one, it's only 1 game.

If it's a major case, them you suspend the guy indefinitely and wait 1 week or 2 and make the decision. If it's 5 game, them you retroactively substract the games he already missed.

part of the decision to suspend Hansen was based on the fact that Hossa got "injured"- but now he is back...not cool

Hossa feigned the severity of his injury to sell the call. How is that point lost on you? The thread title wasn't "NHL refs conspire with Blackhawks to hose Canucks".

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

lol wow

it's not the severity of the injury Hansen is getting punished on. It's the fact that Hansen just blatantly elbowed Hossa

Hossa was never injured, but that was part of the reasoning for the suspension.

Don't think so, If Hossa get right back up after the Torres hit, it probably would have been less than 5 games. Maybe not even reviewed.

exactly. the hawks were up by 2 at the time, so he sold a call, got up once there was a penalty called, and went back the the dressing room to make sure he doesn't REALLY get injured in a "blow out" and to help sell any further dicipline. he didn't come back after the nucks tied it/in OT because he was already too deep into the lie at the time. then he's suddenly all ok after the dicipline is handed out.

The Blackhawks should be fined for this or at the very least Hossa should get a game suspension for diving <_< It will never happen but it would send a message that this type of behavior won't be warranted.

Maybe there is a deep-seeded, latent, instinctual darkness that lies deep within the Scandinavians on our team...Hansen, Sedins, Edler are of Viking heritage, and their ancestors were warriors and explorers who raided, plundered and settled wide areas of the world.

All kidding aside, there's really nothing about the one game suspension to Hansen that is surprising...it was incidental contact to the head, but unfortunately, this is something that the NHL is trying to get out of the game. Would we have got a similar ruling if something like this happened to Daniel Sedin? Let's hope so.

It's well documented that once you suffer a head injury, the likelihood of suffering another is very high and that it doesn't take much to cause another, so Hossa's "miraculous" recovery is probably nothing more than the Hawks and Hossa taking the necessary precautions to ensure that he didn't have a set back from the Torres hit. If it were any one of the Canucks, that's the way I would expect it to be handled.

Just as Hansen does not have a history of headhunting, Hossa does not have a history of embellishing injuries and has shown that he's a honest player, so I'm inclined to give Hossa the benefit of the doubt...other Hawks, not so much, including Quennville (who I'm surprised kept his trap shut rather than ranting about how sick to his stomach he was about seeing Hossa getting hit in the head).

From a fan perspective, all this drama is great...it just adds fuel to the fire that is the Canucks/Hawks rivalry.

The league for the past few years has always targeted the Canucks when they get a chance - with waived off goals (when was the last time a ref called it 'a goal' upon review to favour the team?), phantom calls, penalties for contracts (aka the Luongo effect), I could go on....

It's not specific targeting, it's incredibly slack reffing that manages to be inconsistent, along with the management of the league. Of course, some teams like the Penguins are going to get more than a tip of a hat in their direction for near every decision, but still - my point stands - it's not exactly specifictargeting.

I'm pretty sure J.Q said Hossa was fine in his postgame press conference.

My completely random guess is that Hossa is pissed off that he got hit in the head after being concussed by Torres and maybe had a tiny headache so he went down and stayed down because he wanted to draw attention to it. Yes, I think he embellished. If a Sedin or Kesler had done this, everyone would just say he dived. Double standard, but what can you do? Whether fairly or unfairly warranted (i know, all teams dive) our team has the media's attention when it comes to dramatic diving which is why we'd never get away with something like this. If our own media wasn't against us, things may be different. In the SCF, the bruins media ripped us and our OWN media ripped us as well. How screwed up is that? You'd think your own media would defend you, but the exact opposite happened. Bruins media defends their team to the death, our media should wake up and support this team for once.
