As big as a double-standard as that is, whether a player dies or not seems to factor in to how severely they are punished.

It actually just makes me wonder why he catches so much s***.

I'm sick of seeing this crap and a suspension during the playoffs, especially to a star player is the only real punishment available to the league. I really don't care if it's borderline legal or open to debate legal. It's just a downright stupid play on Hossa's behalf and I'm all for sending a message for injuries caused by stupidity.
Yeah, and we all know how terrible the league is about this stuff. Remember what they did with Pronger in '07?
"You laid down a seriously dangerous and highly-illegal hit to the head on Holmstrom! You are suspended for one game!"
A week later...
"You have, three games later, laid down yet another highly-illegal and seriously dangerous hit to the head, this time on McAmmond! You are now a repeat offender, and there were only two games between the incidents! This must be dealt with, and it must be dealt with now! We must show loudly and clearly that this behavior towards one's peers will not be tolerated!!! And so you shall recieve... ANOTHER ONE-GAME SUSPENSION!!!!!"

Maybe he'll be named "Player of the Week".
Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa had a disciplinary hearing with National Hockey League this afternoon for the boarding penalty he received on Saturday when he knocked Predators' defenceman Dan Hamhuis into the boards in the third period.
