Many Habs fans (including myself) sincerely believe that Chara intentionally tried to injure Patches last year. Furthermore, Chara wasn't even suspended a game for it.
I find it interesting that when Habs fans are criticized, it always seems to be when the most extenuating of circumstances are in play (i.e. some Habs fans booing the most overpaid/under-achieving Habs player of all-time, Scott Gomez; some Habs fans cheering an injury to a guy that many of us sincerely believe headhunted one of our best players).
Is this really that hard to get and understand?
If Habs fans were cheering an injury to just some random Bruins player, then yeah, I'd agree
barbaric and classless. But to this
history against us?
When a player gains a certain notoriety in a city due to how badly he injured one of the home team's players (think back to Claude Lemieux-on-Kris Draper or Ulf Samuelsson-on-Cam Neely) then this sort of stuff is to be expected.
Let's be frank here: Chara is a very good player, but he also can be a very dirty player. And if you play that way, you should be prepared for the consequences that come with it (such as being thoroughly hated and despised by fans of rival teams).
