He wanted to hit him intentionally but regretted it instantly.

Oops, I voted for the wrong thing. I highly doubt he really intended to injure Pacioretty, especially to that extent, if that's what you're asking.

I thought I'd clear this up because the first few comments are picking both answers so here it is:
He wanted to hit him and he accidentally injured him by driving him into the stanchion
He wanted to hit him and intentionally injured him by driving him into the stanchion


Incident:


Random fact: Chara and Pacioretty did have issues in prior games leading up to the one where Pacioretty got injured



Threads discussing it in case anyone is interested
PART I
PART II
PART III
PART IV
PART V
PART VI
PART VII
PART VIII
PART IX

Random players, owners, etc.
Thornton: league favours bruins
Habs owner calls out Boston and the league and addresses fans
Air Canada threatens
Liberal leader gets involved
Police gets involved (LOL)

Halo reenacts the hit:




Sorry if I'm reopening any old wounds or arguments between the habs fanbase and the bruins one, I don't mean to...very deep down we all like each other
Really?, you're joking right?

Am I a bad person for laughing out loud with the Halo Reach video?

Of course it was intentional. Chara knew exactly where he was on the ice. Anyone who ever played hockey should know this.

But if he'd known before hand about the severity of the injury, he wouldn't have done it. It's the heat of the moment.

My guess is 95% of people will say intentional are Habs fans who still haven't gotten over it.

Accidental but reckless. Chara should still be somewhat blamed.

Accidental in the sense that Chara didn't mean to break vertebrae in Pacioretty's neck and cause him to sit out. Intentional in that there's no way Chara didn't know what he was doing/where he was on the ice.
