I am tired of watching the NHL Department of Player Safety go light on players that should be suspended for multiple games, this was a situation, that I believe warranted a 2-3 games suspension. By going light on Jannik Hansen you pretty much guaranteeing he's going to be a marked man in the next game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Vancouver Canucks.
In summary, there is "no" justification for that dirty, bush league hit, and I don't care what anyone says,you can not defend that dirty hit either. I don't care what Jannik Hansen is doing. Everyone knows that Marian Hossa has just returned from a concussion and you can connect the dots, the Blackhawks are the best team in the Western conference. This was a definite attempt to injure another player.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Chicago Blackhawks won (again) Tuesday night, this time against the Vancouver Canucks, but it wasn’t without seeing one of their best players go down after a scary hit (again).
Vancouver forward Jannik Hansen delivered a high elbow to Chicago’s Marian Hossa in the third period of the Blackhawks’ 4-3 win Tuesday, and it will reportedly earn Hansen a hearing with the NHL...

Cry me a river, don't do the crime, if you don't want to do the time. This is why people hate/despise the Vancouver Canucks. You're responsible for your actions on the ice.

That had to hurt.
The Vancouver Canucks and Chicago Blackhawks played to an entertaining and hard-fought 4-3 shootout final on Tuesday, but Jannik Hansen’s hit to the head of Marian Hossa was what had fans talking after the latest rivalry instalment.
Early in the third period Hansen found himself behind Hossa battling for a puck overhead when in reaching up for possession he struck...

Top Performers in Up & Down Week
The Vancouver Canucks ended their season-high winning streak this past week and also saw another close shootout battle slip past them. But there were some positives wedged in between the disappointing moments.
Getting Ryan Kesler back was a big bonus for the Canucks, as he hasn’t seen ice time since last year, even with the elongated off-season...
Vancouver Canuck forward Jannik Hansen hit Chicago Blackhawk forward Marian Hossa's in the head with this dirty hit and he needs to be suspended by the National Hockey League for this dirty hit, there is no defending this hit. Like I said in a previous post, this is a clear violation of the NHL’s rule 48. Vancouver Canuck forward Jannik Hansen needs to be suspended for this...
The Chicago Blackhawks - Vancouver Canucks rivalry intensified on Feb. 19th thanks to a controversial hit from Jannik Hansen to the back of Marian Hossa' head. The play, seen below, featured both men trying to grab a puck out of the air, only to have Hansen's elbow collide violently into Hossa's head.
Was the elbow from Hansen intentional? Should the NHL hand out...
During last night's game, Vancouver Canuck forward Jannik Hansen hit Chicago Blackhawk forward Marian Hossa's in the head with this dirty hit. This play needs to be reviewed by the department of players safety. There is no doubt that this hit and should have been more than a two minute minor penalty, in my opinion.
Rule 48 - Illegal Check to the Head
The Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks have developed quite the rivalry from their repeated playoff matchups. Going into their game on Tuesday night, the Blackhawks were looking to tie the NHL record for longest season opening point streak. The record was set by the Anaheim Ducks in 2006-07 and that team went on to win the Stanley Cup. The Blackhawks won in a shootout...
Early twitter talk is some calling it a collision with both players reaching for the puck, others say hea dshot.
Hansen received 2 for roughing.
Let’s Go Boys!
The Canucks are back in action tonight, taking on the hated Chicago Blackhawks in the first of four games on the road. Cory Schneider is expected to get the start in goal and David Booth will play his first game of the season.

I’m not even quite sure what I watched when the Canucks took on the Hawks the other night.
The Blackhawks came as advertised and dominated the game to an embarrassing degree. Cory Schneider‘s best game of his career kept the game close but this was a lopsided game.
The ‘Hawks were pushing the puck through the neutral zone with ease and creating odd man rushes every...
