He's not really wrong with what he said. When Chara faces a heavyweight he often does take them down to the ice. I don't see why there's anything wrong with that statement, it makes more sense for Chara to tackle a guy and end the fight than risk getting hurt or losing a fight.

Emphasis on the "often" part, because there are definitely exceptions when he's fighting somebody else who has size on him (see Chara vs Koci). He's definitely not a bad fighter like some of you guys are saying. He might not have the best technique, but I can't imagine it's easy to stay balanced during a hockey fight when you're close to 7' tall.

I would have loved to see him fight Boogaard (RIP), or maybe somebody like Smacintyre. Even John Scott would do. Chara is one of the best D in the league though. Doesn't make sense to take himself off the ice for 5 minutes just to scrap a plug like Scott.
