Does Alexei have to bring a note to each game saying he's not "medically" allowed to fight?

Pointless retribution, not something you want your star player doing.

Not "each game" maybe only some games. Emelin has only been chased, jumped and pummeled while down on his knees when playing against the bruins.

Your blaming a guy with metal plates in his face for not wanting to fight?

I wouldn't really call them fights. They more of wrestling matches than fights.

Emelin returned in 3rd period, threw 2 more hits and got assist on tying goal. Thanks Obama.

Didn't look so dirty to me. Certainly not as dirty as B's fans are saying. A pretty average crosscheck that caught Seguin in an exposed area.

The B;s are the dirtiest bunch in the league and get away with much ditier tactics than this.

Two minute penalty and move on. Chara defended his teammate as a good enforcer should, but B;s fans should shut up about the dirt and look in their own yard.

For medical reasons Emelin can't fight because he has metal plates in his face from a surgery. "Fun"?

good thing this game wasn't in MTL Chara would never made it to the plane after being detained by Montreal's finest after the game.

Hope Seguin is ok after this HUGE classless play by Emelin....

Chara overeacted but I would've liked his reaction if he was on my team. Emelin deserved a 2min but com on....

Seriously, Emelin's stick might have broken when Segeiro's slashed it.

Interesting. So obviously someone pummelled him before. That's too bad. Maybe this will help him make better judgement on his actions.

It's pretty simple really. If you decide to crack a guy like Seguin in the ribs hard enough to break your stick, expect to have to man up. Plates or no plates.

You also don't get to pick who you have to answer to either.

It's truly not a big deal except for the "Chara is a bully" crowd.

Lol at Chara the bully throwing punches against a smaller, turtling, injured player because maybe he *thought* Seguin had been killed. There was no penalty on Seguin's dive and the Ribeiro clone took his next shift with a smile. Chara can't control himself and this contributed to the bruins' loss. Should be a suspension as well.

More lol at arguments basically saying "If a guy is not prepared to be jumped and pummeled he shouldn't be playing hockey..."

I hate Boston, but I am so envious of the Bruins for having Chara. What an absolute stud that guy is. 6'9, 270lbs who can skate, fight, shoot and is likely the best defenseman in the world. He's also captain of his NHL team and National Team, and is one of the most intelligent people in the NHL.

Why couldn't he have signed with the good guys in Toronto?

Weren't Segeiro's ribs busted? Tremendous that he went out there for his next shift. Strong hockey player.

All of the pieces are here, but just in the wrong order.

1) Emelin can't fight.

2) As a result, he has metal plates in his face from a surgery.

yup, sure was.... ever take a decent shot like that in the kidneys? It hurts.

If Emelin just leaned into Seguin here, he gets the same result but it isn't a cheap shot and none of the rest of this happens.

This all falls back on the terrible instigator rule. If Emelin knows that someone could literally break his face if he takes a cheapshot, maybe he doesn't do it. Sometimes the 17 minutes is worth it, but the league should just remove that penalty and let the players police the cheapshots.

That cross-check happens every game it just looks like he got him in a good spot, still think Chara could have responded different no need to take himself out of the game

So you agree, it was just a bad spot. And yes, I agree he could have responded differently. But we have the advantage of watching on television, with multiple view replays not watching live and trying to decide whether what you just saw was dirty.

From his vantage point, he likely saw Emelin jab Seguin in the kidneys and then throw his stick that looked like he just broke across our star player's body. So, I can understand and appreciate the spontaneous decision to go after the guy that delivered that hit.
If Seguin gets seriously hurt on that play (and after a quick look like Chara had, he might have been), the Bruins season all of a sudden looks much different than it does right now. Chara, and the bruins know this, and that is why he reacted the way he did.

And the point of discussion:

3) It's "fun" to watch someone jump and pummel a person who has metal plates in his face from a surgery.

Is that normal?

By the way it looks like Segeiro tripped check his left skate in the replay
