from Tim Sassone of Between The Circles,
For the second time this season the Blackhawks watched one of their best players knocked out of a game by shot to the head.
Atlanta’s Colby Armstrong laid out Marian Hossa early in the third period of Saturday’s game at the United Center, sending the Hawks winger to the dressing room for the rest of the night.
Was it a clean hit or not? Armstrong led with his shoulder, which is fine, but he caught Hossa on the chin.
The point here isn’t clean or dirty, however, it’s how much longer Hawks general manager Stan Bowman is going to let his best players be targets?
Maybe this isn’t a problem that can be solved this season with the March 3 trade deadline so close, but next year the Hawks darn well better have someone tough enough and nasty enough to show other teams they better not be going after Hossa, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith.
