i think maybe because ovie was a repeat offender that he got suspened. where as hossa was not. its pretty much the same hit though. shouldve gotten at least 2 games i thought.

The NHL office clearly recognizes that it was a former Penguin doing the hitting. :hehe:

I agree, he should have been suspended. No different than Ovie's hit.

Was not as fast or violent as Ovechkin's, thus I agree with no suspension. He was punished enough with a 5 minute major with only a couple minutes left and his team down a goal.

The excuse that the injury wasn't as serious is appalling. Just because it wasn't doesn't mean it couldn't have been. Aren't they trying to stop the injuries before they happen instead of dealing with the consequences and the player after a serious injury happens? Does a player have to die before the NHL will start taking these hits more seriously? Yeah, Ovi was a repeat offender, he got 2 games. All it takes is 1 hit to end someones career, which could be by someone who isn't a repeat offender. Give Hossa at least one, or at the very least kick him from the current game. What good are rules if they can continually make exceptions to them?

Where are the similarities? The fact that they both happened near the end boards?

I'm guessing the "similarities" are the result of most people liking Ovechkin, and disliking Hossa. Not the actual hits.

Edit: I have a bad habit of using actually instead of actual. That's like the 3rd time today only haha.

Yea only the game winner. What a pro. Lol

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

Yeah I 'spose. Ovi's hit was malicious as he FINISHED the hit, THROWING Campbell into the boards, AFTER the puck was sent around the boards. Hossa was applying minimal pressure while Hamhuis was stopping, causing him to awkwardly slam into the boards.

This. It was basically a shove with an unfortunate result.

Like I said in the other thread, the playoffs are a different beast. 2 games in the playoffs are way bigger than 2 in the regular season.

The potential career ending injury is the same no matter if we're in the playoffs or regular season...

It is, but Hossa's hit was not as bad as Ovechkin's and that's all that matters.

OMG. Quit being such a whiny, homer. That's all this is about. Hossa barely touched the friggin' guy.


And what's with people comparing this to Ovie's hit? There's no comparison at all. AO propelled a guy into the boards. Hossa barely touched the Predator defender.

Good, non-suspension.

I agree it wasn't as bad, but he still should have at least been kicked from the game.

The difference that i see is that Hossa just put his hands up on him, like most players when they are going to that part of the ice. It is a very common play. They were both just moving so fast that it was a fluke accident.

Ovi's hit it looked like he was actually going for the hit because he lowered his shoulder into his back and with his past being known as a wreckless hitter he got suspended.

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

Fair enough, he got a 5 minute boarding call with a couple minutes left in the game and his team down a goal. Every hit is different, and I think this hit has already been properly punished.
