End of story.
The penalty was a 2 minute, got the 5 for the injury, was given the game to cool things down, to prevent knee jerk reactions to an emotional situration...bottom line, it was a 2 minute penalty to begin with, the same interference call we see 3 or 4 times a game!!

The NHL rule book suggests otherwise, read it before making blanket statements that may be less than accurate.

Well if you are right and that was the NHLs response, I think the police would believe they were being mislead

Where does it say someone should be suspended based on if a player receiving the hit gets hurt or not?

Boudreau is part of the problem, he never sees his players break the rules, nor does he care if another team loses a player due a questionable play. However if it happens to his players, different story.

hthttp://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/348842...s-player_news/
Because since the player in danger is a Montreal Canadien, the media, fans and sponsors overblow the situation. If this was in a Florida vs. Atlanta game, we'd have heard of it, but not too much. There wouldn't be an outrage by the sponsors, there wouldn't be 'protests' and it wouldn't be shown on a sports station every five minutes.

It's great that they care. But under the standards, the fact that it's happened in the past, the fact it's not a rule under the rulebook, there's not too much the NHL could have done. It was interference, yes. But it's not like Pacioretty never had the puck. He chipped the puck in and went to chase, and Chara took the body instead. Penalty, yes. Suspension, no.

It doesn't, but if you read the post I was commenting on you would know what the hell was being discussed.

This is the comment I responded to: You don't punish based on consequences, my response was the rule book suggests otherwise.

Rule 56 is just one example, interference, normally a 2 minute minor, however....

56.4 Major Penalty - The Referee, at his discretion, may assess a major
penalty, based on the degree of violence, to a player or goalkeeper
guilty of interfering with an opponent (see 56.5).

56.5 Game Misconduct Penalty – When a major penalty is imposed
under this rule for a foul resulting in an injury of an opponent, a game
misconduct shall be imposed.

This clearly says the NHL Rulebook does take into account the consequence of a player's action.

The way I see it, Neil's hit was more perpendicular to the boards, whereas Chara was kind of rubbing out Pacioretty. Chara's was interference, Neil's was a clean hit. Neither made head contact.

Old Bitter Rivalry

This debate could go on forever, but Im afraid that the Habs fans will end up not ever getting the result they want as far as a punishment!!

This is not about the injured player, this is about Habs fans that already had a hate on for the Bruins and whoever plays for them, and yep, Chara has been a rival of the Habs for many years with both Ottawa and Boston!

The hate was there for Chara long before the hit to one of their own ever even happened!!
People have this "love to hate" mentality, this added more hate and gave them a reason to publically hate a player!!
Take trolling for example, there is this adrenaline rush going over to enemy territory and cause trouble, try to insult and anger the rival.....this gave the perfect oportunity for Habs to let it all out!!!

Say what you will Habs fans, this is nothing but a show of hatred for one of your biggest rivals, Your minds were made up even before that hit took place about Chara!!!
