I don't get why Chara gets this reputation as this "Big Bad Dude." He isn't a fighter, he is not overly physical. He is a two way Dman who plays more positional defense than trying to go for big hits(to his credit). I can understand that Orpik, or Pronger has that reputation, but Chara?
Chara leads all active players in hits, and it's not even close. That's kind of the definition of being a physical player, no?
I'm on your side with this argument. I don't even think the miller incident was dirty. Something similar to that happened to hagelin and every one on this board was pissed when hagelin got a penalty
LOL dude, you're completely off with this one.
Did you even watch the game when it happened? Lucic completely ran him. Put his arms up and demolished him.
Hagelin made half the contact with Bachman. It was Goligoski who hit him. When two players are going after the puck and the goalie comes out like that, what the **** is Hagelin supposed to do? Lucic clearly lost the battle to the puck and decided to charge right at Miller and deck him. And Hagelin turns his back towards Bachman and tries to stop. So, how does your argument make sense? Oh, it doesn't.
