Same level of obsession that allows threads like this that have nothing to do with Boston to go on for 4 (minimum) pages?

Some idiot I work with from Montreal keeps saying that Colin Campbell help Shanny make this decision. Seriously is there a way to just never hear a Hab fan talk ever again

I think the mindset of Habs fans at large is embodied perfectly in the attitude of Brian O'Halloran's character in Clerks (the original film, not the sequel).

In all honest, it was the right call. It could have been 2 games and been aligned with the Rags/Flyers incident earlier in the year, but I have no problem with 3 games.

What this does bring up though is a larger discussion point- is the criteria being used to set the penalty decision and terms the right criteria? It's better than the old way of having no real criteria at all, but there is a large possibility that the criteria could be refined to provide what some might deem, fairer judgments. Like I said though, that is a larger discussion and likely one for another day.

Headshots have nothing to do with Boston? Fascinating take.

Aside from the fact that Boston has been royally screwed by hits to the head, EVERY hockey fan -- regardless of which team they root for -- should have an interest in this and EVERY blindside hit that happens and the repercussions.

Yes, since it involves a Canadiens player there's more discussion. They are the bitter rivals. They are in the same division.

Hey guys, maybe you can help me out. A Habs fan I know recently tried explaining to me that the 911 calls after the Pacioretty hit were rumors created in Boston. He said there's no evidence for the actual calls. I know for a fact that the investigation was underway, but I've only heard that the 911 calls were formed on a local Montreal talk radio. Could anyone explain that situation to me?

A talk radio host suggested that fans call 911, and some lemmings did it.

I'm sure numbers have been exaggerated by Boston media types, but it did happen.

I think Shanahan got this one right. It was fair.

When all is said and done, history is going to remember Pacioretty as being a dirtier, sneakier player than Milan Lucic.
Even the sabres players, or specifically Gaustad, said Lucic is a honest hard working player. It's true. Ya he has a hot head and will try to goad people into a fight when they start **** with him, but that's part of why he's awesome.

i can't really help you by answering your question, but i thought it was worth sharing that i was corrected by a habs fan after i accused his brethren of "abusing 9-1-1." he replied that nobody he knew called 9-1-1, but that some people may have called "Nuff-uh-uh"

Not unless CBC news Canada is based in Boston:

Pacioretty's hit on Letang was VERY similar to Paille's hit on Sawada last year. Both came on the backcheck and from the blindside as the player came over the blue line into the offensive zone.

Result:

Paille suspended for 4 games.

Pacioretty suspended for 3 games.




Oh, the bias, inhumanity and horror of it all.

I don't know, remember when the Montreal Police sargent, something like Lafrene? (lah-fren-yair?) called in to Felger and Mazz and stated that their offices were actually flooded with calls in regards to the hit.

Personally I don't blame the cops for taking the investigation, they were pretty much obligated to. The real blame falls on the citizens and public officials/businesses doing the same, demanding justice. When cops receive that much pressure, it's their job to carry it out...and I bet anything that behind the scenes, they thought it was a crock and were taking their sweet time with it because they were busy doing other things, and on the surface they took it seriously to appease the cry babies

Flooded is a subjective term. Boston media made it sound like every man, woman, and child called 911 repeatedly about the hit. In reality, I'm sure it was more like a very vocal minority.

Stop making me defend them, please and thank you.

Hockey fans are going to discuss a headshot and subsequent suspension, no matter what team is involved. We don't don't focus on the Bruins here to the exclusion of everything else.

If a Bruins player took a headshot from a Rangers player and three out of every four posts discussing it referenced the Canadiens, then you might have a point.

ha ya, I don't think it was that many people. Surely a very vocal minority. And all it would take is about 100 people calling in every few minutes following the hit to "flood" the station, how big is their police force anyways?

From the CBC story Kaoz linked:

Quote:
Police say they have been inundated with calls from people seeking to file a criminal complaint against the Boston Bruins defenceman.

The calls demanding criminal charges began Wednesday afternoon, shortly after the NHL announced it would neither suspend nor fine Chara for a brutal hit on the Habs' Max Pacioretty.

While the league closed the books on the incident, and even Montreal Canadiens players remained tight-lipped, many of the team's livid fans demanded action.

Police say their emergency call centre started getting flooded around 4 p.m. -- after the NHL announced its decision.
Those are comments from the cops, not the Boston media. Sure, the media ran with it, but they didn't create it.

With all the hot air from the Habs fans complaining about the suspension, I doubt it.

Montreal fans are really going to **** bricks if the NHL ever has the nads to crack down on PK Subban's slew footing.

Good call by Shanny.

Hits to the head can not be allowed. The players can learn from the film Shanny shows with the explainations for his decisions.

By now it should be clear to everyone that if you hit another player in the head you will sit out a couple of games.
