- Chara hit Max high with his hands, he wasn't rubbing Max out of the play it was blatant attempt to injure

Factors that will make the suspension a maximum two games:
- Zdeno is "sorry"
- Zdeno is a star player
You can add the following:

If Chara lets him go, Montreal has a two on one.

It is a freak accident that the timing is exactly at the turnbuckle of the rink.

It would be no different if a player hits someone along the glass and the glass shatters causing injury. The turnbuckle is what caused the concussion, not the hit.

Watch the Johnson's hit on Smyth. No suspension given.
