    Same hit, no suspension


    Jack Johnson hit on Ryan Smyth...

    Let the random wheel of justice spin on.  Of course, Smyth didn't play for the Canadiens at the time.  That could be a factor.

    Fletch, just got a call from Chiarelli - asked if you could be on the next train to represent Chara in front of Campbell's deputy, Bettman.  Hush, hush, of course.

    Seriously, why the game misconduct?  Because of injury?  Because of interference - huh?  Because it was in Montreal with Campbell in attendance?  It was not a match penalty, and anywhere else on the ice, possibly a 2-minute minor at very worst.  Does any of this work in Chara's favor.

    That's what worries me most about it.

    it's a joke if chara gets suspended. how many checks into the stantion have we seen over the years? HUNDREDS. how many have resulted in suspensions? ZERO. i'm actually very surprised it doesn't happen more often. how many times do you see a guy checked into the open bench door? or goal? and i'm saying checked legally. not a head shot or cross check. if suspended...the league will have opened up a big can of worms- suspensions levyed in every game

    For once there is some consistency from the league office.  As far as I know there has never been a suspension resulting from checking someone into the stancheon.  How do you start now on a standard interference penalty?

    Kudos to Murphy.

    The correct decision - no foul intended from a split second decision (Pacioretty had the decision to make too).  If every moment of physical contact is regulated, the game will be played on the coach's X and O board and not on the ice.

    Murphy should rule more often I've been thinking about if Mike had ruled on the Cooke-Savard hit what the outcome would have been...
