Bettman is a lot of things, but he isn't stupid. The league's stance on this issue, along with many others involving player injuries this year, will come into play in the upcoming civil case surrounding the Moore/Bertuzzi incident.

If the NHL were to make a statement that the Chara hit was wrong, or anything other than a 'hockey play', it would give ammunition to Moore's side of this upcoming case. The unfortunate part of all this is that Pacioretty's life and career basically gets treated like a pawn in this game of legal chess...
