I saw the play and it didn't look bad at the time. It's too bad, with all the concussions dealt by classes players like Matt Cooke,that refs are erring too far on the side of caution. And ruining the game... I don't know what the answer is.

And in my eyes there is no comparison between the abdelkader and Gryba hits! This is a prime example of the discrepancy in suspensions

And LA gets an outside game. Pretty soon the outside games won't even be special anymore.

Aren't they doing a bunch next season? And none in Boston!?! That part I don't get because we put out the rink every year now for college games so everything is already in place.

Agreed. If they really wanted to popularize the game more, they could make it more affordable to go to one.
It's almost impossible to even get a ticket here the last few years.

If the NHL really wanted to be credible, it would have banned Chara for a year.

For what? That was a legal check, made worse by the laughable design of the end of the partitions. What about Matt Cooke, ending Marc Savards career? That was worse. I think he should have been banned for life. Chara was called for interference. The correct call...

You need to move back into the hole. There have been so many incidents, intentional even, that got less than an interference call. It was all time and place, something that happens in every hockey game, that just did not end well for Max nor end that badly compared to other incidents.

HABS fans, they are cry baby powder puffs....but that is how their team plays. What more could be expected?

The Hawks looked pretty good last night.
I'm surprised Pittsburgh isn't just rolling over the Islanders.
I also am surprised by the Habs poor showing.

There are about two players I can name who have deserved that harsh of a punishment. Todd Bertuzzi and Matt Cooke. I think Bertuzzi should have been kicked out of the NHL on the spot. Anyone who thinks Chara deserved a year either A. Doesn't know or has never played hockey, or B. Is a hardcore hometown fan who just hates the Bruins.

The real question is did the Habs ever swap out those end boards for the new style or no? I know they were one of the few teams remaining to do so.

The adjustments at NHL rinks included curving the glass panels in the areas around the benches, so that a player involved in a collision similar to Pacioretty’s would be more likely to sustain a glancing blow, rather than the head-on trauma that resulted from Chara’s hit. Introducing the change was one of the first steps taken by the league’s Department of Player Safety, which was established in June after a season in which Pacioretty’s injury was one of many that put up a red flag.

The above is pasted from the article linked.
