    They “look” at everything but no he won’t get a hearing or anything for that.

    Why is Gallagher waving his stick around in front of Chara’s face?

    No suspension. No discipline. That's 2 minutes nothing more.

    Yeah. Smashing your stick in your opponent neck is totally acceptable.

    I don’t see how that isn’t a suspension.

    Intentionally cross checks a guy in the face.

    2 mins each for roughing (if that even) and 2 for cross check. Off setting doesn’t seem right in that exchange but nothing more than 2 mins imo.

    if Gallagher or another Hab wants to challenge chara, I think that’d be fine and I’m sure he’d oblige if asked correctly.

    LOL Kassian gets two games for a dustup with a turtle chicken and a blatant cross check to the face is worth nothing?

    Would not surprise me with this league and how it's discipline dept is run

    It was the collarbone area (which is padded). If that hit him in the throat or face he would have been in big time trouble and severely injured. Still a dirty play but nothing suspension worthy.

    I'm kinda surprised they even called a crosschecking penalty, because Chara.

    The dude is grandfathered in with the Derian Hatcher clause. Commit a penalty every shift and the refs eventually accept it as your baseline.

    Which I guess they essentially erased Chara's penalty with the roughing call on Gallagher, for getting crosschecked in the throat.

    Best part is Chara mocking Gallagher’s act

    That 100% should be a suspension, who knows with this league though. That's a bad look for the NHL if you let crosschecks to the neck go unpunished

    Kadri gets playoffs games for similar. But it’s the bruins and it’s Chara. So no, no they won’t

    And Chara was still insinuating that Gallagher was trying to sell it. Gallagher is one tough dude.

    Settle down, barely touched him, it is just because Chara is a giant and Gallagher is a smurf.

    BBBuff did this to many people. I recall him cross checking Connor Carrick while he was in Dallas, smoked the side of his neck so hard, it broke Carrick's nose. Didn't think it was possible. Besides the nose injury, I always wondered what the results are, when an animal like buff did **** like that. Don't think the league gives a **** about this sort of play, unless it's Kadri.

    As I’m sure Habs fans know, this will get nothing because Chara plays under a completely different rule book where sucker punches and cross checks to the face are legal.
