At first glance, it may have looked like the hit Raffi Torres threw on Marian Hossa Tuesday night was clean. Watching it on TV during game speed made it tough to judge, but after seeing the replay itâ€™s clear that Torres did a number of illegal things. As you can hear in the call in the video above, former player and current Coyotes analyst Tyson Nash disagrees that the play was dirty.
â€śThat is as clean of a hit as you are going to get,â€ť Nash said after viewing the replay according to CSNChicago.com. â€śI donâ€™t have a problem with this, he comes in, he explodes through that hit, and hits him with the left shoulder.â€ť
The problem is he exploded through his head. Torres lined Hossa up after he had already released the puck, left his feet, and hit him high. It was a dirty play and Torres can expect a multiple-game suspension for it, despite the fact that the referee who was standing right next to the play somehow failed to see that Torres launched himself and made contact with Hossaâ€™s he...

I was watching the Phoenix Coyotes game last night and like most was shocked to see that Raffi Torres wasnâ€™t kicked out of the game for his check on Marian Hossa. The even more puzzling thing was the fact that Torres wasn't challenged to a fight later in the game by one of the Blackhawks players. Now the Chicago Blackhawks have to depend on the NHLâ€™s Department of Player...

With a new suspension seemingly being handed down by NHL discipline czar Brendan Shanahan every day that passes in the 2012 NHL playoffs (with Raffi Torres being the latest and perhaps most deserving player suspended thus far, with his suspension currently set at indefinite), a discussion about what it all means has been a prevalent [...]
