CTL: What to make of Hansen hit on Hossa?
Chris your initial impressions of -- what went down yesterday and should we expect any kind of further disciplinary action terms of games coming well I don't think that Munich instant. Intentionally went after Mary -- to -- but I do think. You know so what went through the -- -- and that's the -- and cut down on so I do think if you get a game or two years that this hearing. Kind of waiting on word from Brendan Shanahan is making his video now -- in the studios and if we are not always gonna fill up with a great viewing for your time to sit down and watch. He is really happy when the started last year and without him out there there but governor was kind of it's kind of fun to actually -- -- was the studios that. Shame -- -- clock out quite popular green room so much better than your career but you know so I would expect that -- -- needs a lot of work -- guys. You know I think he'll he'll get a game or two but I don't think it's severe certainly is what roughly -- didinger and also ten months ago. And it's -- -- sticking the senior -- Williams had these two teams buddy was after that happening at the Coyotes because -- worked so hard to give back almost the nuclear to have. But this -- -- mid November. And it really starts being heard in December so he worked his way back and talk him in July about just how start you know start was for that during a time and he was really in a lot of pain and and difficult to for a long time to get that point and had this may have -- again. You know I haven't heard a whole lot but with preserves its certainly has been the was. Before the season we'll find out more tomorrow the Blackhawks to practice so when will -- tell you -- it was a dirty -- -- just incidental. I'm still -- -- naming Chris you can help me out with a sense trying to figure out exactly the difference between when it's hockey play. And where and they also include a reputation as well because. I know once as a wasn't a hockey player guilty parties always say -- -- I had given but the reality wise I don't think either of them knew where the puck laws do apply that. I think I think they saw the puck coming I don't think name them all I think I got a hand up to may be. -- you know after the catch the puck but. He gloved the puck and knock it down I think but. I think it clearly wasn't to get the puck and I think he Summers hostess had there at Dickey took a shot from behind so I don't think you went up underdog get married also but. It's interesting you mention hockey -- thing I went back and I looked there were roughly tourists that after he did it in the third -- hockey play rather than I am when I heard that lesson -- between that about 1 of the morning last night and for the Vancouver fan so I started well I don't know if you know how -- -- just -- me I was necessarily serious about the -- those things just. Seeing the stream of hate I wasn't a good judgment and I just thought it was interesting that the same you know than the -- gonna hit where the seams guys who. Get the thing going in the same results at the same thing a hockey play. And you know I -- wanted to -- but. I I think this is more Iraqi clue what Ruf records that probably had a reputation as big -- -- You did -- Carcillo done that he'd be endeavor and our twenty -- talk about how it compares the Duncan Keith -- just meant but after the game. Here was how Hansen and his coach Alain being -- interpreted the collision get ready for hockey play. Dove for loose puck and he kind of gets the first semester were coming down iron. I think a pennant race tomorrow on the back of his shoulders. And you solvent and and and see what happens afterwards for us they continual. -- -- looking back -- into the zone and again we'll see how special was going off. We both kind of jumping forward. And again he's she's got the puck first and I've become common now and I kind of land on a little bit in my. Apparently I hit him on the back in the back to have this what does the ref is telling me once come down again it's it's hard for me to it's totally helped him. Was able -- penalty. Both referees looked at the play. And until two days went out to talk to them wasn't even though it was the explanation that you were given after the penalty process. Wasn't gonna we're trying to grab the puck in the air. It's unfortunate that a few. Minutes hurts our enforcer that. Your job to get the puck. Well we are can also look back it would happen between the Hawks in the Canucks last season. In that there was also puck in the air Duncan Keith and is Daniel there's there's Daniels and dean who emerged on it. But I think in -- case it was deathly more a case of intent wind bring it back in an earlier hit by Daniel sitting kind of similar circumstances. Keep it never had a previous history and he got five games -- that if you're good to be serious about shots ahead. And concussions and all that then be serious about it through the NHL hat so I I don't think there's any doubt the -- -- she get. Multiple games if you wanna take this out of the game. Then it's got to be basically zero tolerance and again I -- do you take in consideration reputation but. I think immediately it's at least a penalty any time you go to guys had maybe four -- one. It's a multiple game suspension if a guy's not doubt heard -- judged to be knocked out because of direct blow the head especially if it looks even remotely intentional. And I think that you can also on top of the sort of immediate. Game suspension part of it say okay listen you're also not gonna play as long -- guys out yeah I'd like this I mean that that's that's a little bit. It's -- horses -- look a little bit more out there a little bit more but. I think you put in a direct suspension this is what you pay the penalty you'll pay. And then you're not -- taken on the ice as long as that guy doesn't take the -- either you know and now get married hoses out there Friday. And it's TV suspends for Donna cancer he comes back after two games but -- married hoses out a month. Sardonic Hansen -- I don't tell what I take out again a career ending injury. Then maybe it's just the rest of the season he couldn't find -- and put. You've got you've got to be serious if you wanna be serious about it. Be serious about it how much trying to overreact I would say it is the same thing with the Blackhawks players say the same thing about Duncan Keith last year -- the that you laid on -- which was worse. But you gotta if you're gonna be serious I'd be serious about that and and the problem I really haven't they talk a good game going to take this out of the game. And I think everyone was given the thumbs up after -- Torres gets when he five games Lester then they end up reducing it to 21 right there. What if what if this was truly an accident and end. You know player comes down with a serious injury. Like Sosa did last year and knock on wood hopefully this is this serious -- Well that's -- that's what you're saying but I can't agree with Brian I think that once you say. The hits they had have got to go into Canada's strong about it. And I I don't think I think Bennett tells a little scared to do too much I think they I think the given to the guys with the big reputations. You know the -- Torres the dale Carcillo is. I think guys in the middle there there and I don't think they're prepared to do that yet. Well I you know I here's the difference between that hit and and then dusty you so much work because there was intent there to go after guys. And he was retaliating for something had happened earlier. And you know you were similar weapon you know quick everywhere -- -- -- Don't think he said you know. I'm not proud of what I did but I take my five games on the service -- -- why did it he won his on the method you want to get back to somebody. At different incident last night and here's what I think it's a little different because the puck wasn't here it was coming coming to the player for the players. I don't think you -- to -- him in the head but I do think that he could have held up and continue to get missed a shot which is -- -- that's -- I think if you -- to. And as -- -- the game he's just so fast and you know for those conspiracy -- -- is saying closest scored two goals whose light him up all night. For that to happen bang bang like that in for Hansen to be premeditated. He cannot stand this is my series of it and not just evident -- and I would like to see him get some kind of discipline if they're serious about the game. The -- I just think the game it just happens to -- mode that played out that -- don't kill the guy that's why does not like this is not even Duncan Keith in terms of like automatic team suspensions but all it takes is for married hosts of the fall the wrong way. Or cock his head on the ice and it's a much graver situations.
