emelin is in a precarious position, he's not " established" so if he turtles, against the bruins in boston, he will the the tag that Claude lemieux did, but if he goes it could be his career. the league generally does not treat players who lay out big hits but wont fight well at all. I'm just glad that no one got seriously hurt,
didnt think the cross check on seguin was all that bad but I understand that chara could have interpreted it another way
I don't think Chara is a dirty player at all, in fact, I think he more often than not takes it easy on most players because he knows how strong he is and what damage he could really do if he wanted too.
But every once in a while...the wires touch and Chara goes loco.
The hit on Pacioretty (not to revisit that again) & charging Emelin last night are two examples of a few that I can think of.
Just not a very smart play by Chara
