[QUOTE]just seeing tony marinaros name on this post makes me sick. listening to him after the game driving home, made me lose whatever respect i had for this person as a sports journalist. he clearly could not see the bigger picture of the chara/patches incident and just over and over kept bashing chara for his use of the word "unfortunate" two things of note here. technically pacioretty can get fined by the nhl for bad mouthing them publically right? i doubt the nhl would do that now right? oh and he says he does not remember being hit, yet he can make the judgement that chara rammed his head into the turnbuckle. im not defending chara, and im not defending patches, but as a bruins fan in montreal who remembers the feeling he had when bergie got hit by randy jones, a two game suspension would have been sufficient. the nhl dropped the ball and now its about to escalate to another level in this city with the police involved.

People like you geez....are the problem here !! Like most, you're talking out of both sides of your mouth. You're not defending Chara or Pacioretty. You're not blaming Chara or Paciretty either.
Yet, you say the league "dropped the ball" for not levying a suspension for something that you can't articulate any rationale for.....other than appease the Quebec fan base, or validate some issue you have with a past incident !!
This is a very straight forward issue. 100 times out of 100, a defenseman will do exactly what Chara did, when confronted with a break away. 70 times out of 100, a penalty will be called. 1 time in a million will result in serious injury.
The prevailing circus is disgusting. Where has Air Canada been up to now? Their statement is beyond belief !! Guess they only speak up when a Hab gets injured! What's with the Canadian government? Don't they have bigger fish to fry?
How come nobody is questioning why the stanchions are so lightly padded? Wouldn't it be reasonable to at least consider the safety implications of the stanchions, and possible improvements?
No. I guess not. For most, nonsense, makes the most sense.
