Under this very reasoning. Patches was hit late that caused an injury. Since it happened during the regular season then Chara should of gotten anywhere from 16 to 20 games compared to the Rome Cup finals suspension.
This is what Bruin fans fail to put together. They continually come up with the two hits were different from each other. The problem is Murphy agrees both hits were illegal under hockey rules whether you call the hit late or interference they caused serious injuries. So under his own words Chara should have been suspended.
Now the final conclusion, both of Murphy's rulings have favored towards the Bruins.
He didn't even look at the dirty blindside hit of Ference on Halpern.
Murphy seems to allow Boston extra leeway while heavily penalizing teams that may cause damage to Boston.
Yeah he did, they had a meeting on the phone. Ference told him it was an accident, that he saw him at the last second and braced for impact, Murphy bought it and they did nothing. He publicly stated that he believed Ference, yet he said about Rome that he felt for him but what he said has no bearing on his decision.
