I know not every game is like this. Thankfully or there'd be no players left to play the game.

Still, not very pleasant. There were a whole bunch of kids in my section. I wonder how this'll affect their vision of hockey.

I remember when I was younger one of my friends was into wrestling, so he invited me and a few other people over to his house to watch. A while after it started, Owen Hart fell to his death. I know it's almost one in a million, but still it didn't make us want to become huge fans.

BTW, I'm not really trying to make a point, just thinking out loud.

No kidding. On his twitter feed he mentioned that he looks at all injuries from the point of view of a parent. Not too sure what view he thinks parents have.

I hope Patches directs him to his lawyer and then spits on him. There is nothing he can say that can make up for what he did. NOTHING

Not saying you were out of shape or something, I'm just saying vs. the general population that Max has a leg up over the "averages."

Of course, the concussion is a second ball of wax.

@Cool---Im sorry my avatar offends you. I have literally done nothing here except send my wishes to Max, and give everyone here the absolute best info I can on his injury. I am almost positive there is no one here that has a problem with anything Ive said, so if my Avatar is the only real problem, then please feel free to add me to your ignore list.

@Lucius---I TOTALLY understand. Thats why before I had said I didnt want to compare the two, they are uncomparable, but still, I express my concern for him coming back to soon to a pro level. I just want to see him have the best career he can have, and not hinder it by an early arrival and a second injury. I do understand what you are saying, absolutley. I just think its best if he waits as long as he can.

Normally Pierre would love pointing out that he was right, but in this circumstance the whole professional national sports media will close ranks to protect Chara. Sad but oh so predictable.

That said, I lost a boatload of respect for McKenzie. How would he feel if Chara targeted his kid? What's so awful about this one is that Chara had already demonstrated that he was after Pax. The whole "I can't read his mind" is absolute nonsense and McKenzie knows it. Did Chara want to get suspended? No. But did he want to injure a guy he knew full well didn't have the puck? Or is it more plausible that a 14 year veteran Norris trophy winning defenceman doesn't know where his bench begins?
I could be wrong but I think one of Bob Mac 's kids did have a concussion issue.

That's ridiculous. It was the last few seconds of the period. It was an offensive zone faceoff. Chara was in position to shoot the puck.

Obviously this guy wasn't involved in the 'understanding hockey' side of things.

As for Chara - my opinion is that Chara wanted to "get Max back" but I doubt he meant for it to be as severe as it was. I'm thinking Chara wanted Max to get a stinger for a minute or two and ended up coming close to ending his career/life.

Reckless and stupid play, should be given a huge supsension (10-15 games). I never liked Chara and like him even less after this but at the same time, I can't think of too many people who would want to dish out an injury that badly.
I'm with you, great news to hear that the neck will heal relatively soon, has given me a bit more optimism for him on a very dreary day. As for the concussion, let's hope wolverine still has his powers.

Habs fans are the most passionate fans in hockey. Seeing one of your player laying motilonless, like he was ****ing death. Its normal that some fans lose their mind and talk with their emotions. Can't even understand that bobby?
Bobby Mac was dead on imo. Most of you are over reacting. Even if it was intentional, it deserves 4 games maximum imo.

It sucks that Max was finally playing his game where we all hoped he could and this happens but hockey is a dangerous sport. I hope Max makes a full recovery and is the same player next season.

I agree completely, this is jsut a PR stunt by Chara to cover his but. And the big dumb goon cant even fake remorse or concern. In his interview he actually tried to blame Max for "jumping" into the divider. REALLY?

Nothing is guaranteed concerning the concussion. He could be better in two weeks, or it could take months. Wait and see.

People attacking McKenzie because of what they perceive was the tone of his article is ludicrous.

McKenzie's words were balanced and fair.

I've been reading other posts around HF about this incident and I was very surprised to see some people saying that Max had this coming to him simply because he gave Chara a little shove in a previous game..

Seriously what the hell is wrong with some people..

Sorry if already posted, but from Pacioretty's agent:

"Max sounds like himself. It is going to be a lot of work to heal and rehab, but his will power is one of his strengths."

Great to hear. Pacioretty doesn't have a history of concussions, so HOPEFULLY he'll get lucky and won't have too many complications with this one. Would love to hear in a few weeks that he'd be on track to be ready for training camp in the Fall. That would be amazing news IMO.

i just want him to rest not face the media and all that crap. I still remember when those bozos stormed koivu room during the habs and hurricanes match when he got cut in the eye by an uncalled high stick.

My spinal injury was a 5 vertabrae injury and I took a year off of sports. I thought I was fine and then went back. My first contact and I completely reversed all progress. I no longer participate in any of my sports, and never will. And that was years ago.

I really hope he takes it slow. It will be better for him. He's young, he's got time.
He won't be back because of the concussion anyway, I'm sure the Habs will take every possible care with him and won't rush him.

If it's just hairline fracture, it could only be a few weeks since Pacioretty is young. But then you have to rebuild your muscles in therapy etc. not including a concussion. He won't play until next fall and I really don't want him rushed back, I could care less if Montreal missed the playoffs.

It would be no different if a player hits someone along the glass and the glass shatters causing injury. The turnbuckle is what caused the concussion, not the hit.

Watch the Johnson's hit on Smyth. No suspension given.
