this can only mean that the NHL has officially condoned all out vigilantism. I for one will not shed a tear if anything happens to Chara. He deserves every bad thing that comes his way for the rest of his life. In my eyes he is the biggest low life in the league right now. Worse than Matt Cooke.

I'm trying to understand the logic of this decision and the only thing I can think of is that if they gave him even a one game suspension it would be acknowledgement that there was intention, and if that were the case, then it would have to be a much larger suspension. There doesn't seem to have been a middle ground without tacitly accepting a large suspension was justified.

This is the original blog post:

I'm too lazy to quote it directly but in them, Campbell is seen checking up on penalties against his son Gregory to see if they were warranted...and this is the guy we're supposed to believe has absolutely no involvement on cases involving his son's team. Puh-leaze.

Ok. We know this ****'s leagal then. Let's hire a cheapshot player. Have him do what Chara did. Line a player up and hit em into the turnbuckler, then say it was not intentional, say its unfortunate that player fell into the turnbuckler that way. What's the point of being the better team? Seriously? Other than our fanbase, we're pretty much bashed on all sorts of unjustified ****. Get the dirty players. There's no sens in being the better team when your team's the one suffering the injuries. Tired of this ****. I'm just tired of this **** league not taking action. Get a ****ing cheapshot artist, a real one!

As someone who puts Max's recovery at the head of this whole thing. I feel very disturbed by the fact that people outraged by the lack of suspension want someone injured on the Bruins team... That's the last thing I want.

Rioting seems like an even more stupid decision. Yes, we lost a great young player on our team but acting like goons only makes us seem childish to the rest of the world.

I'm not surprised by the lack of suspension and I think the hit warranted at least a couple games, but the way some people are reacting is way overboard.

Pretty much everyone on twitter agrees with us.. except of course Barnaby. Bob Mac even says he thought he'd get 2 games at least.

Pathetic, disgusting and irrational. There are few other non-synonymous words to describe this development. Colin Campbell and Mike Murphy deserve all the heat they'll get for this and more. Their jobs should be on the line, not just for this situation, but for the years of negligence and incompetence that they have shown and will continue to show.

You can imagine the penalty if Campbell Jr. is injured.

I don't know if I even want to watch the
NHL anymore. It's clear they don't care about all the players equally. How is this a hockey play? A man has a broken vertebrea and a concussion. Protecting players from head injuries? Not if it was a hockey play...

Anyone at the game last night? At this point we have to bring the law in since the NHL failed.

Well the Bruins gave a message to the Habs for sure, Campbell hiting the face of Pyatt with his elbow pad, MacQuaid no suspension for instigator in the last 5 minutes, Chara tries to kill Patch gets away with it. Basicly the NHL is the last place where you can try to destroy someone face or try to kill them and get away with it, i hope Patch sues Chara, that's our only hope.

If for nothing else, he should have gotten two games for being reckless/dangerous/whatever else you want to use.
Chara was going after him. He wanted to hurt him

I stopped following Barnaby.

Disgusted by the ruling, but it doesn't change anything. Pacioretty is still gone for the season. It just sucks that it sends a message out there to the league, that it's okay to shove someone's head into a turnbuckle and fracture their vertebrae.
