Once again, if Hossa wasn't injured on the play, I think somebody on Chicago would have pounded Torres and that would have been that.

I'm not defending Torrres that much, but I think we're being hypocritical talking about how big the suspension should be while saying it should be intent and not results.
To me the problem with Torres, is two fold.

1. He is a constant repeat offender

2. Hossa did not have the puck/near the puck, Torres left his feet, and i haven't seen it enough times to comment on how much/if there was head contact but:

As Shanahan explained in Alex Ovechkin's suspension for charging Zbynek Michalek:

"The moment Ovechkin launches himself into the air prior to the hit he becomes responsible for any contact to the head."

They really should throw the book at the guy, he's repeatedly made stupid plays that risk serious injury to the opposing player.

Torres is the reason I hated Vancouver last year (Torres must really not like Chicago....)

Hope he gets the Matt Cooke treatment from the league and his own team. I really want Phoenix to do well, but if they condone sh!t like that, I can't root for them.

So how does Shanny make a different argument and buy Neal's bullsh*t about bracing for contact when he launched at Cooter? That's my point about Shanny being a turd.

Similar hits, away from the play...we'll see what the punishment is for Torres.

I saw this in google search and read "18 April" and "no suspension" and almost punched my wall, then I noticed it was from last year. https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C...torres+*******

Because Shanny doesn't like Philadelphia.

I made my summer Shandy with lemonade, but in honor of the playoff series I should have made it look blood red.
