Hossa on his way to hospital

Marian Hossa was rushed to hospital in tonight’s Blackhawks-Coyotes game after taking a big hit from Raffi Torres. Hard to say much beyond this his is absolutely suspendable for a multitude of reasons.

1) Torres left his feet.
2) The play was charging to begin with.
3) Principle point of contact was Hossa’s head.
4) The puck was gone, though it was less than a second from when he let it go so I doubt that can be held against him.
5) Torres is classified as a repeat offender.

Take a look at the hit.

A) Think Torres should be suspended?
B) If no, why?
C) If yes, how many games?

Here’s hoping Hossa is alright. At last word he had arrived in hospital.
