The way some of you are arguing against there being a penalty you would think that Chara could take baseball swings on MSL every time they are on the ice.

No doubt it was unintentional. But a player has to have control of his stick. I've seen it called both ways before, but obviously the stage on which it happened and the severity of injury tempers the response it should get. It was the wrong call, and given the circumstances in the game with the number of weak calls on Bolts and non-calls on Pens despite regular season reputations, it just compounds frustrations.
