Do I blame NHL for that? No.
How can you compare these two? One is a regular check (ok, maybe interference) that turned tragic only because of bad board design (and we will never see into Chara's head to know if it was intentional).

The other one is player dropping gloves, jumping another player from behind, beating him on the ground while he's defenseless and finally sticking a finger into his eye (possibly permanently damaging it). It had nothing to do with hockey, it was a regular assault.

Not to mention that Chara had no history, Artyukhin is a known idiot who had injured many players before.
