Nice and simple, should Hossa get a suspension for that hit on Dan Hamhuis?

Pick an option and if you feel up to it, discuss it.

It was identical to the Ovechkin hit. For consistency's sake (The NHL's best attribute) he should be suspended for 1 game.

So it seems I don't know how to pop a youtube clip into a post.

That was a really dangerous play, but I don't see Hossa being suspended for it. He doesn't have enough of a history of this kind of stuff to be suspended for it, especially not during the playoffs.

I don't think Ovechkin should've gotten the suspension.

I voted suspension not for consistency, but because Hossa is Hossa.

I tried to reason with myself as to why he shouldn't get suspended, but I keep coming up with only reasons why he should.

I don't hate Hossa like most Wings fans, but in my eyes, it was a nasty hit worthy of punishment.

I don't think Hossa really meant to f*** him up (like OV tends to) but if you suspend one you should suspend the other
There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

Let's be honest here too, if he had hit one of our players like that, I think we can all agree the majority would be screaming for suspension.

I agree that I don't think he was actually trying to cause injury.

To be consistent? Yes.

However, because it's the playoffs and Hossa's not a guy who usually does that kind of stuff, I really doubt they will.

Thanks for that.

Like people have said, He should probably be suspended for consistency. However Hossa isn't usually involved in these situations so it wouldn't surprise me if he got off. Ovy had already been suspended once earlier in the season. Was a bit of a stupid play on Hossa's part, whilst I'm sure he didn't mean for that aftermath, you just shouldn't force momentum on someone who is already moving that fast towards the boards.

i also say yes for consistency. but when have NHL and consistency ever collided in a sentence without the use of the words "dubious lack of" in there??
he won't be, and it'll be par for the effed up course.

he did look pretty shocked by it as he sat down in the box. coach q, on the other hand, should be punched in the face for frivolously waving it off in that "i can't believe this was a penalty" way of his.
(okay, coach q should just be punched in the face. repeatedly. list your reasons)

Can't believe I'm typing this but I agree with Pierre, the trapezoid is one of the worst rules ever adopted by the NHL. As if no-touch icing isn't dangerous enough.

I'm voting yes for consistency. To be honest, he'll only show up in Game 5..so they won't miss him for game 1 of the next series. He was a Game 4 guy last year, moving one back to Game 5 this year.

Absolutely not. The difference between this and Ovechkins is that Ovie actually put his shoulder on Campbell. Hossa hardly touched him. If you have to give him anything give him just the 5 but I think that is even a little steep.


5 max maybe because it is a dangerous part of the ice but still to me seems a little much.

I'd just want there to be some consistency in the calling. Hate the double standard. Hossa really should have been booted today.

By god, he'd better get a f@#$ing suspension. He laid down the EXACT SAME HIT AS OVECHKIN LAID DOWN ON CAMPBELL... and he did it while Campbell was on the ice, haha.

If he doesn't get a major suspension, then the NHL has made yet another joke of its own disciplinary system.
