Does the stretcher need to come out before Chara gets the book?

Tonight:

1. Questionable hit on Tommy Wingles; Wingles does not return. No call.

2. Cross-check to the face of Tomas Hertl. No call.

The NHL will not blink at what happened tonight while many other players are suspended for decisions they made in the blink of an eye. Will it take another Pacioretty before the league decides to send a message to Chara?

Hit on Hertl

I am so confused here. This must be some sort of level. Like really? A stretcher before......what in the world man?

Chara is not even a dirty player. Guy is respected by most of the players in the league.

But yeah, carry on.

This is why a team has John Scott on it, Eriksson was first who's next?

I'd need to see the video. Aside from the stanchion incident I don't really recall many dirty plays by Chara.

The crosscheck just sounds like a 6'9" guy doing the same thing every hockey player does once in a while. I see high crosschecks all the time. I'd need to see something malicious to it.

his last name isn't Pronger so it's "ok"

Video here at about 0:45... very limited coverage.

If Shanny can't make a video it might not be worth his time.

Damn. If Kaleta got 10 for brushing against a guy, that has to be in the neighborhood of 9,000. I would think.

If John Scott needs to bend down to hit, then Zdeno Chara needs to bend down to hit. And like Shanny said about Kaleta, the option is there for him to just not hit him. 10 games. Out of curiosity, did Julien bench him the rest of the game? Did Milbury go on a 20 minute rant afterwards about it?

He touched St. Hertl?! oh my...

couldn't even find it on YT.

and keep in mind, you would need a damned big book to throw on him!

gotta admit I didn't watch the game and he might be one of those players who get indeed special treatment but this one looks like one more overreaction by a Sharks fan.

So you're serious in wanting Chara suspended for being too tall? Oh. This isn't fun anymore.

Your assumption is half correct. Sharks fan yes. Cross check to the face, yes. There is no dispute.

For the record, the most likely candidates to watch tonight's game were Bruins and Sharks fans. Big surprise that one of these parties posts a thread.

The Pacioretty hit was clean. Chara is a clean player and has earned the respect of the entire league.

Might be, but that is continuation of faking on a whole different level considering he never returned to the game.

Chara is mean and has a big time nastiness to his game, but he walks that line very well in terms of what you expect the league to dish out punishment on.

Having watched the replay just now, that is not a good hit, Wingels is trying to slip the hit, but the arms are up for Chara, they could give him a game if they feel like it, doubt they will. Would kind of expect a phone call though.

I can't imagine watching hockey just to look for moments where you want to suspend players

It might be time to try another sport, champ.

Yes. and even then he probably won't.

Keep in mind that, to the Bruins fans, no one on their team is ever dirty and even when they get a minor penalty it's just a player "being punished for being a bruin".
