this is true, but I still have no problem with "grit" players standing up for " talent" players even if the hits are legal. I understand that a lot of people see it differently, c'est la vie.
Anyone who watched the game and saw Chara make a bee line to Emelin and then acts surprised at what transpired next is either ignorant or being disingenuous.
I generally dont think that guys standing up for teamates is poor sportsmanship, again that might just be me. Which is why I liked what white did to fleischman and though it was both appropriate and proportional. Same with what Chara did.
