Yotes/Hawks
 
HUGE hit on hossa. Haven't seen a replay. Would a non-homer please tell me whether or not the hit was dirty?

This game could get good.

Zacky1053 04-17-2012 09:32 PM

He leapt off his feet and into him (shoulder first)

[QUOTE=Zacky1053;2543435]He leapt off his feet and into him if you watch the replay[/QUOTE]

Just saw a replay. Didn't look like he threw an elbow at the head. Suspension worthy: yes. Severe suspension worthy: not really.

I think he got him with the shoulder but him leaving his feet is what got my attention.

Very dirty hit, I can't believe it was missed by the officials. Also isn't it very similiar to the hit he put on Seabrook when he was in Vancouver?

Kenny Albert just mentioned that...

If Shaw got 3 games for the hit on Smith, I would think that Torres would get more based on his past

StraightCash 04-17-2012 09:44 PM

On top of that the Coyotes went on a powerplay afterwards. These refs are slow.

Zacky1053 04-17-2012 09:45 PM

1-0 HAWKS!!!!!!!

I take it you're a Hawks fan :). It doesn't seem like it was that dirty. Dirty, yes. I don't think Torres' intent was to injure though. I thnk he'll get either nothing or 2-3 games.

IMO it wasn't similar to the Seabrook hit. In that hit (if I remember correctly) he went right in with his elbow, straight to the head. This was a high shoulder that caught Hossa in the head I guess.

solt0131 04-17-2012 09:54 PM

This league has become an outright laughing stock. Even the national media thinks so.

Also, the puck wasn't anywhere near Hossa. I believe Hossa passed the puck, made two or 3 strides and then Torres hits him.

Maybe they might actually do something about all this once someone dies on the ice.

The NHL is a joke.

I am a Hawks fan yes. But if Shaw got 3 games for hitting Smith (who is playing tonight) wouldn't you think Torres would get more based on his past history and the fact the Hossa was taken off and is out at least the rest of this game. I agree, that I don't think he was trying to injure Hossa. Its not the hit that is the problem, it is the leaving the feet that will cost Torres I believe.

Then why did he leave his skates and hit him up high?
Shanahan also factors in injury when making suspensions.

Bob McKenzie of tsn touched on this. At the point of contact Torres was still on his feet. He didn't jump into the hit.

gonzagacubs 04-17-2012 09:58 PM

Two effing years in a row this #@#@#@#@#@#@ ass POS has done this in the playoffs to the Blackhawks. Call me a homer, but that was total bush league. Hossa had to be taken off on a stretcher. Not only did we lose Hossa, but Bollig as well with a game misconduct for going after that POS. Basically only have 3 lines to finish the game.

Go Hawks!

avjp87 04-17-2012 10:04 PM

Seeing Torres is a repeat offenders, his ass should be done for the rest of the playoffs

Zacky1053 04-17-2012 10:17 PM

Tripping by Torres what a surprise :rolleyes:

frozenntimesports 04-17-2012 10:40 PM

Rest of playoffs + 20 next season. That hit was ridiculous. Hossa had been rid of the puck for 2-3 second when Torres threw the hit. Hossa isn't likely to play again during the playoffs after that hit.

trapstar92 04-17-2012 11:21 PM

I may be a homer but after he is a repeat offender and after Shaw's suspension this has to be 5+ games.

gonzagacubs 04-17-2012 11:36 PM

Dang, another OT game. 3 straight. As a Hawks fan, I am really impressed with the Ekman-Larsson kid. He is going to be an awesome defenseman for a long time.

Oilers1980 04-18-2012 01:07 AM

6-10 games based on the past history and the clear late charge. Have to say that watching Hossa leave on a stretcher with police escort to hospital will not help Torre's case any.

If they want really send a message, it will be for the rest of the playoffs ( whatever that may or may not be).

jayjay0122 04-18-2012 10:20 AM

How do the refs not call him for charging? A hit like that should be 10+ games, but with Shanahan handing out the suspensions it will probably be like 3 games. Knowing Torres' reputation it wouldn't surprise me if he was trying to knock Hossa out of the game.

BAMBAM 04-18-2012 11:17 AM

I doubt we'll see Torres for the rest of this series. Repeat offender status, all the negative media lately, Hossa carted of the ice and probably out for awhile doesn't bode well for Mr. Torres. Shanny obviously makes rulings on results because he even admitted he calls the team to check on the players condition.

Wait and see. James Neal, 40 goal scorer, only got one game yesterday and that was for trying to knock off Giroux's head. He pretty much got away with what he did to Couts because, luckily, he failed in his leaving his feet attempt to shoulder him in the head. Exact same type of hit yet the puck was gone a whole lot longer then it was in the Torres hit on Hossa but you watch, Torres probably won't play another game in this series because he's a repeat offender and not a 40 goal scorer.

Not sure why Shanny doesn't factor in OBVIOUS intent when a guy fails on putting another player out like Neal did ? So if Couts and Giroux, the Flyers two best players in this series were both out for a few games then Shanny would have given Neal a few more games off as well ? I thought Colin Campbell was bad but what a f'n joke Shanny turned out to be this year. :rolleyes:

BostonNut 04-18-2012 12:04 PM

Heh...no.

He'll get what Aaron Rome got. Both very similar plays.
