I've been calling it for ages. The NHL disciplinary commission should be comprised of an independent organization consisting of NON-NHL execs, ex-NHL Players and arbitrators with no links past and present to the NHL or NHLPA. But that would make too much sense now wouldn't it?

This league has made me sick of hockey yesterday and today. I can't stand this.

The pathetic reality is, if this happened to Ovechkin or Crosby, Chara would be thrown out for a minimum of 5 games. But it's Pacioretty, people will turn their head and say he's not a big name. The NHL is a joke of a league, and they're being exposed for it.

This could get nasty, shades of the 1959 Riot come to mind.

I really hope for the Habs sake, and all of their fan base....that on the 24th the Canadiens go out and do exactly what the Isles did to the Penguins....some people may disagree with me but with how this league is run, that's the only way to get appropriate justice anymore.

I wish the NHL reps were in charge of common laws. I would go rob a bank right now. I never robbed a bank before so my past clean record should entitle me to no penalty.

Now since Chara has not even one game, if he does anything dirty again, they will say he has no record. This punk sucker punched Ivanans in the mouth while he was down and being held by a linesman, they have past dirtiness on Chara they are just denying it.


The parents should sue the
NHL
Bruins
Chara
Even if they donate the money to charity they should hit this inept organization as hard as possible in the pocket book.

Wow. In some way, I don't really care about the suspension, because banning Chara for a few games doesn't change what happened to Pacioretty. But if this is being written off because the NHL believes its a 'hockey play' gone wrong, then the NHL seriously needs to reconsider what it defines as a 'hockey play'.

I'm more upset than angry...

instead of telling Chara there will be no suspension, maybe he should drive down to the hospital and tell Pacioretty.

If we play booins in the playoff, it could really happen.

Just disgusting and disgraceful. Makes me not want to support the league in any manner. If that was not intent to injure, then intent to injure does not exist. NHL sending a message that cold-blooded revenge is now acceptable.

And then the league wonders why teams take it upon themselves to go after players.

The Bertuzzi incident is a result of these chicken spit calls by the league in NOT diciplined there players. If one of our players takes liberties with Krecji or Horton or Lucic etc and takes them out for an indefinate amount of time, then there will be an uproar that it was premeditated. Bottom line is, it's entirely avoidable if the NHL takes the appropriate action.

For crying out loud, the Boston reports were saying he should have been suspended! THE BOSTON REPORTERS FOR **** SAKE!!!!

If they thought we wanted blood after last game, the outcry from this will be infinately times worse. I hope we do take out one of there players now for the rest of the year but the sad fact is we won't and Boston will do it again and again until someone does die. Then Campbell will HAVE to dole out a 2 games suspension, as long as it's not for his son.

I'm so upset. If I didn't have such an emotional attachment to the Habs, I'd stop watching hockey

So this is the leagues mandate, you can't give a guy a obscene gesture (Wiz on Avery) but you can break someones neck.

I'm frustrated, but this could have been the leagues chance to give it self some credibility, I really think, even if they truly felt the way they did.. they should have been politically correct about this and handed a one or two game suspension to show other leagues that listen, we suspend people for these actions... but nothing. It just baffles me, any other league..Chara is out.

First Lucic gets away with crosschecking Moore in the head and now Chara gets nothing for driving Max's head into a stanchion causing a fairly serious injury.. It really must have pained the NHL to suspend Paille for his head shot..

I'm too lazy to quote it directly but in them, Campbell is seen checking up on penalties against his son Gregory to see if they were warranted...and this is the guy we're supposed to believe has absolutely no involvement on cases involving his son's team. Puh-leaze.
how ironic this was written in the post:

If you want your team to be treated favourably, acquire Greg Campbell, because Colin Campbell will watch all your games and ***** about bad calls.

unbelievable yet totally believable, if that makes sense.

on a semi related note. can anyone find the NESN (Jack Edwards) video on youtube of Patches scoring the winning goal from the January game? I cannot find it on youtube anymore...

I am pretty befuddled by this as an outside spectator. I figured at least 2.

All this is going to encourage is an all-oou brawl next time the teams meet.

Just receive a call from a star NHL player on the league decision on Chara: "I want to puke".

Wisniewski gets 2 games for a gesture and Chara gets 0 games for breaking a neck! Awesome league!

How can you not want to smash Chara over the head with your stick after this? If I was a player that's what I would do. And that's the problem.
