I personally think Chara was guilty of a hold, but the center ice official has no business calling that.
I can tell you from experience that sometimes the guy 3' away is blocked, or doesn't have an angle to see a penalty that's perfectly clear to the guy 50' away. As an official, I find it frustrating when my partner gets all territorial if I make an obvious call that the other guy felt should have been "his call to make".
