Either you are for players standing up for teamates or you are not. If you are not, I seriously question how well you understand the game. Saying that you want players ( especially a captain) to stand up for teamates, except when its against the habs, or a guy who has plates in his face, is transparently hipprocritical.
Its not like Chara is a spot picker, if it was markov or subban who did what emelin does, I dont think it changes Chara's actions one iota.
I get a lot of people dont like chara, but holding something against him that you should HOPE a canadien would do in the same circumstance is not logically defensible.
So why didnt Chara go up and fight John Scott when he knocked the **** out of Thornton?
Because Chara is just like the rest of the Bruins. Opportunists.
Chara had the Bear replaced on his sweater that night with a kitty cat. And you know what I mean by that.
