    I can't wait for this big lumbering oaf to retire. I'm going to celebrate. Funny they choose to fine him now when he has done that many times in the past. Finally.

    Must really hurt to know that this " big lumbering oaf " would be one of your team's best defenseman. :nod:

    What I learned in this thread, is that according to Bruins fans it's okay for Chara to crosscheck someone in the throat.

    Classy.

    This is just one reason to consider the NHL a Bush league amongst other things.

    It really is hard to believe how little scrutiny Chara has received over the years.

    Scott Niedermayer was sneaky dirty...stealth...Chara is not sneaky dirty...he is just plain dirty. It is pretty easy to be tough when you have no real physical equals....it is a heck of a lot harder to be Gallagher.

    ...and I hate Montreal.

    League boasts about enforcing stick penalties yet their enforcement is felt like a love tap, now imagine if Gally had a broken laryinx Chara wouldve got more, this being tied to if there is an injury is pure nonsense. This was freaking dangerous and the penalty is a joke.

    Gally is a warrior and youd like him on your team.

    The reason the fine is that amount is because of the CBA. The NHLPA really struggles between protecting players safety over protecting players' income. Whilst it would seem logical that the NHLPA would seek greater protections for their players health, they can't seem to understand that may mean allowing harsher penalties against players who commit these acts.

    Well it was pretty ugly and I sure wouldn't want Krug or Marchand on the receiving end of something like that.

    Basically it comes down to this:

    - If Galagher would have hit the floor: " Oh look at that ! He is such a wuss!! Typical Hab !!!Chara bareley touched him !!
    - If Galagher stands but snaps his head back: "Embellishment !! Chara barely touched him
    - If Galagher stands there and doesn't flinch: See ? He didnt move !!! Chara barely touched him !!!

    Well at least $5k will make Chara think next time about his actions, I’m sure nothing like this will happen again...

    hahs that’s why there was no suspension. Which is why it is open.


    So despite your best effort..... you are right
