Both are classless, and the author is hypocritical. But, you're pointing at that incident to bring forth their lack of class. And I agree with you. But Habs fans did the same thing. Calling them out doesn't make you any les classless. So you basically do the same things you complain they do. Not very mature.

P.S. not saying the fan base is classless, just making a point.

Yes Montreal should be more like Ottawa. A true model of support

all large groups of hockey fans have been known to get drunk and do stupid things. writing about it like it's a meaningful phenomenon, outside of very, very rare instances, is lazy journalism and nothing more.

Is it seriously all you do? Point the other way? What does Ottawa have to do with this? Is it not possible to have a rational intelligent exchange?

No because you really don't understand the situation.

Yes, I do.

So what you're saying is that all analysts who have been critical of the crowd's reaction "don't understand the situation"?

Maybe they aren't Canadiens fans. They can't understand how we were after Chara destroyed Pacioretty, they can't. They don't know how it feels.

Kevin Dupont had his feelings hurt by Habs fan cheering the fact Chara took a puck to his face, and made a reactionary article.

Typical Bostonian

I'm sorry but this piece is as hypocritical as it gets. Why do so many Bruins fans have to embarrass the fanbase all the time? Terrible article.

You do understand that similar incidents have happened before, right?

well look theres no use of denying it, alot of montreal fans are morons and classless but not all. Every fan base has them, the bigger the fan base and the more popular the team, the more assclown fans there are. If anyone thinks montreal fans are the image of class and we do no wrong they have the thickest homer glasses on.

That being said, what gets to me about bruin fans and media is that they or the teams always do something first, come up with an excuse and then go into an outrage when it happens to them. They cheer injuries, then one of their players gets a boo boo and they're outraged but forget they did the same thing in a worse situation just a couple of months ago. The worst part is that their media just feeds them what they want to hear so they get this false idea that they're always right. Montreals media on the other hand called out the fans that cheered chara getting a puck to the face.

And here is the last difference, Montreal players were not happy with the cheering, and pleky even went up to chara to see if he's ok. I'm not so sure a bruin would do the same.

I love the bruins to be honest, they are my 2nd favorite team and only time i cheer against them is when they play the habs, but some of their fans and media are the biggest hypocrites out there, but i'm sure they feel the same about habs fans

Have you ever watched Scott Stevens play? Any play where there is debatable intent to injure is the same

Exactly the type of self-important crap we knew we'd be reading after the Bruins won the cup.

I don't think anything personally, especially from the least classy organization in the league. If a Canadiens player dies on Boston ice they'd still be cheering.

I agree. And it's classless. So the answer is to lower yourselves to their standards? Anyway, I made my point and thought there were more reasonable posters on here. Maybe just not in this thread

I started watching hockey in 2003 so I do not have a lot of memories about Scott Stevens. But anyways, they can't understand us. I'm sorry.

wait a minute
please show an incident where this started a couple of games earlier in the season

Patches pushes chara out of the way when he scored the OT winner. Pisses chara off, then next game, Chara slashes patches near the ankle, then the game following that Patches gets destroyed

Truth of the matter is Chara was out to hurt patches, he was NOT trying to injure him however that was an unfortunate consequence and i honestly believe chara did not want to injure Max just hurt him.

Truth of the matter is that had Chara just let it roll and not kept a grudge, he would have been a bit less reckless, would of let up abit more and Patches would not have been injured that badly. So because this was building up, no there are no similar incidents unless you count bertuzzi/moore

What Chara did to MaxPac was premeditated. He knew who it was and what he was doing, he just wasn't expecting to break his neck, just hurt him.

Had he apologized and admitted his mistake, Habs fans probably wouldn't have had that reaction.

That's not what happened though. Chara said MaxPac jumped into the turnbuckle, that he didn't know who was on the ice, where he was on the ice.

Habs fans have shown class when other players have gotten injured in the Bell Centre. Chara won't be shown any mercy or class from Habs fans though, and to me, I feel that its justified.

I guess no one remembers Chara saying he didn't do anything wrong on the play, how the Bruins thought it was a freaking strong hockey play. How ****ing Mark Recchi got his MD in a week and analyzed Max post concussion symptoms.


I will have no respect for Chara and if I was there I would have started an OLE chant after he got hit in the face.
Well that's you.

The music he faced was receiving negative exposure on all news outlets. It was sort of diluted when some fans decided to take matters into their own hands and call the cops but regardless, the rest of the world saw that Chara had made a careless play causing a serious injury. He was booed in other arenas after the incident. It may be nothing compared to what he should have received - a suspension - but he put some negative light on himself.

I put Recchi's comments and the Bruins fans in attendance aside and concentrate on the incident itself and what Chara did/say. He went into a defensive shell and made claims that were not true, but it's what he did afterwards that redeemed himself with the Canadiens organization as well as Pacioretty. He apologized.

Whether you and the some other Habs fans like it or not, this issue is now dead and put to rest. Pacioretty has accepted the apology and moved on.

He then did a 180, called Max up and apologized to him. Pacioretty accepted the apology and has moved on.

That is also my take on the topic.
