    Chara and Hossa

    So, Haggerty is bent because Chara went to his friend's Cup party and got a picture taken with him and the Cup.

    See the article here.

    Much ado about nothing in my opinion.  Who cares?  The story makes it out to seem like Chara is a bad person or a bad teammate for doing this.  The guy plays for Boston.  They lost to Chicago.  Hossa plays for Chicago.  It's Hossa's party.  Chara is his friend.  Whatever.

    If my best friend won the cup, I would expect to get a picture taken with it.  So many writers expect athletes to be angry all the time.

    These guys are best buddies.  They're countrymen.  He's not fraternizing with the enemy.  I see it as a good sportsmanship gesture on Chara's part.  Seems like trying to make something out of nothing.

    Exactly OC.  These aren't the 60's where Toronto and Montreal players didn't want to ride on the same train.  Nowadays players could go at each other hammer and tong in the playoffs then appear at the same golf tourney weeks later.

    Couldn't care less.  I imagine that the bond is something special between the two dozen or so Slovak players who have traveled across the globe to play in the NHL over the past ten years.  Chara is a great teammate and I think that extends to his countrymen teamates too.  Hossa seems like a good guy too.  I admire that friendship.  Haggs is just being a big, fat, jacka$$.

    I don't care either.  Maybe I'd feel slightly (although I doubt it) different if Chara didn't already have his name on the Cup......but he does.

    On the other side of the coin, when the USA beats Canada for the Gold, I bet Shupe won't take a picture with me wearing my Jim Craig jersey.

    Seth Griffith and Anthony Camara seemed to get along fine at rookie camp after Camara attempted to cripple Griffith in the OHL playoffs, so yeah, I'd say players leave most of the hostility on the ice.  Most players.  Most times.

    Hockey players shake hands within minutes of one team winning the  Cup and the other team realizing the dream is dead.  I don't think this makes it hurt less if you lost.  But you do it because it's the right thing to do - acknowledge your opponent, honour the game.  No different here - Chara has the class to congratulate a good friend on winning the Cup, so he does.  Good sportsmanship.  Haggerty's acting like a five year old who loses a game and then flips the board.

     

     

    Are you not entertained?!?!

    Haggerty is a complete moron who lacks hockey knowledge. Chara is free to do whatever he wants in his free time. If he wants to visit a close friend who won the cup, who cares. Haggerty should get a life !

    Hossa was Chara's best man at his wedding - I'd be more offended if Chara was petty enough not to show up to Hossa's Cup party.

    No problem here with Z being a good buddy and attending the party to acknowledge and congratulate Hossa.

     

    But personally, I wouldn't have had my picture taken with the Cup.  Just sayin'.

    You mean your Keith Tkachuk shirt, right?

     

    ...and Hags is trying to make something of nothing. You can tell it's August.

    Haggs swings and misses about 85% of the time. Every once in a blue moon he gets an article right, usually it's when he is "righting" about prospects.

     

    I doubt Chara gives a hoot about all Boston sports writers by now.

    From what I understand they grew up directly across the street from one another. They are very good friends, I'd be willing ot bet there is a picture of Hossa doing the same at Charas cup party. The way Hags starts out the column is about as mature as Seguins party pics.

    Re: Chara and Hossa

    "While B’s teammates like Chris Kelly, Shawn Thornton and Tuukka Rask have talked about how much the “loss still stings” and how much it “sucked” less than two months later, Chara had no problems posing with Hossa in front of Lord Stanley’s Cup." 

    This guy words it in such a way as to suggest losing the Cup didn't bother Chara as much as it bothered Kelly, Thornton and Rask.  If anything I'd imagine those crazy eyes of his were shooting laser beams after the loss.  This is rumour-mongering journalism.

    No betting but I KNOW there's a photo of Hossa standing beside Chara at his wedding handing him the ring to give to his wife - saw it when it happened but can't find the pic now - link is dead. If you're at that point in your friendship, to the point where you STILL live next door to each other, you don't stand the person up for his party.
