This hit is violent! Now personally I don't think Chara meant to intentionally shove him into the glass like that but its hard to tell. Anyways its violent enough that the Montreal police are investigating it!!

It's violent and makes me clench just watching it. I've seen it before and it's nothing I would ever wish on another human.

Sad sad play.

Ultimately, I don't believe it was intentional. I saw this on Sportscenter last night.

I just can't see it as intentional. Saw a couple analysts talking about it that said not only is it really hard to pay attention to where that extension is when you're coming in on the boards, but Chara is a clean player.

I'll take their word for it.

Hope he recovers fully.

As someone who played college hockey and still plays to this day. I can tell you it was unintentional 100%.


This is also not the first time someone has been hit like this and this was not the hardest one either.

Plus look at ziggy, after the hit, if he knew it was wrong or intentional he would not have kept skating and playing hard to postion he would have stopped because he knew it was bad. And could also expect some retaliation.

Yeah that was a sick hit, and very unfortunate.

I don't think it was on purpose as others have said, but I could see if a fine came out. Last I check, they said Chara wont be fined.

I don't think he should, but I would not be surprised if he was.

I nope Max P. makes a full recovery.

It was a violent hit, because of the location and the size differential between Chara and Max. It was not intentional though, and was only so brutal because of the turnbuckle.

If players thought it was dirty, they would have pursued Chara immediately after the hit.

When Ryan Smyth played with the Avs a few seasons ago this happened to him, but he escaped with only a broken collar bone.

I didn't think it was dirty until I saw him lift his shoulder.

He guided him into the glass.

Chara was obviously still mad about the celebrated goal, and this was retaliation. I think he's doing a great job of playing it off as an accident and everyone is eating right out of his hand.

Cory- that is how you finish a check. Watch any hockey game where it is not a body check, but a rubbing a guy out into the boards. And watch that they will all guide them into the boards and use their arms to do so. If Chara wanted to he could destroy him in a fight or otherwise.

If you do not know, ziggy is something like 6'7-6'8 and weighs around 280 lbs... Guess what, this guy can do almost 40 pullups!!! Incredible strength he has. Incredible. 40 pullups at almost 300 lbs is insane. He can handle his own and if he is mad or still has a grudge you bet he can take it out on a guy anytime he wants.



Hockey players have a set of unwritten rules. When I played college one of the teams we played as Arizona- and we got into the biggest fights in this game. It was similar to the previous matchup between those two teams. People were ejected and kicked out for the next game (we played them 1 more time the next day) and just kept battling it out. AFTERWARDS, after both games, the guys from the AZ team invited all of us to a huge party they were throwing. We were all best friends then, off the ice. On the ice you want to beat the hell out of someone, off ice its like it never happened. Aside from the PUKE Todd Bertuzzi, no one intentionally wants to seriously hurt someone. It just does not happen.

intent or not that was 100 % suspension material the puck was in boston zone and chara made the it in the neutral zone.

He was beaten on the play and should of let him go and please he says he didnt know it was Pacioretty....:rolleyes:

The nhl is a joke i think they are waiting for somebody to die
