Mike Murphy's a tool. Just come out and say there's two sets of rules, and Chara got away with one because he's a "star". Apparently three months ago you needed a late hit, injury, and some other factor like a head shot to get a suspension:

“After a thorough review of the video I can find no basis to impose supplemental discipline,” Murphy said in a statement Wednesday.

“I could not find any evidence to suggest that, beyond this being a correct call for interference, Chara targeted the head of his opponent, left his feet or delivered the check in any other manner that could be deemed to be dangerous.”
Something tells me if Chara landed the Rome hit on Oreskevich there wouldn't have been a suspension either. ******* the NHL.
