    let them settle it out on the ice. HHHMMMM.I WONDER WHAT MONTREAL FANS WOULD BE SAYING IF lARRY ROBINSON WAS STILL AROUND AND WENT AFTER CHARA FOR THE HIT. BET YOU ALL WOULD BE SINGING A DIFFERENT TUNE.

    [QUOTE]What Rask problem? He was 4-0, 1.75 GA the 4 games before Montreal. He went to Montreal and gave up 2 less goals than his superstar counterpart did at home against the same team. He wasnt great. He wasnt terrible. He was part of an entire roster who didnt play well.  If he got a shutout, he would have won 1-0. So, outside of overreacting to the last game... what Rask problem?

    you're watching the game tonight against Sabres ?  Let me ask you this , has Thomas kept them in it thus far in the 1st ? and part of a roster that is not playing well defensively .

    Posted this in another post... posting it again as a "see you later guys" :

    Ok... anyways... there must be some kind of cultural misunderstanding to all this disagreement between us French Canadiens and the rest of North America ! ... I'm pretty sure you'd miss us if we weren't around being different... I know I would find it a little boring if I couldn't get into arguments with my english neighbours every once in a while...

    And those of you who say it would be different if the Chara-Pacio incident went the other way around, you're more than likely perfectly right.  But I sure as hell wouldn't blame you for trying to do something about it.  I wouldn't like you.  I would just hope you did something about it.  It as something to do with the idea of a "greater good" or something... but hey... I don't expect any agreement between habs and bruins fans... And that's great, it's called rivalry right ?  Never had better times enjoying hating a rival team since the Nordiques left Quebec !

    Still, I wish you luck for your Stanley Cup run.  And let's hope for a Montreal-Boston conference final... that would really be something !  I can't help but love the rivalry.

    Thank you for your "moderate" replies.  Could have been worst !

    Later !

    To all montreal fans.  I agree 100% the NHL should have stepped up.  I'll even say the the NHL should have suspended Chara for the hit.  What Im freaking out about is people in Canada calling for Charas arrest.  You'd think the guy shot someone not checked someone in a hockey game.  Im pissed about an airline saying there pulling out if the NHL doesnt handle Chara.  This is outrageous.  I hate jets fans but if Vince Wilfork has a late hit on Mark Sanchez no one in NY calls the NYPD for Wilforks arrest.  GROW A BRAIN CANADA!!!

    Re: Thoughts from Montreal

    Wedgy, (why on earth would someone choose that as a nickname, I'll never know?!) but anyway, the problem is if Montreal fans are SO upset with the NHL's ruling, why don't they contact the NHL and lodge a complaint?  I couldn't imagine the Boston media encouraging their listeners/viewers to flood the phone lines with 911 emergency calls, which I think, is extremely irresponsilbe.  If I was the mayor of Montreal, I would be furious that Hab fans were wasting the city's resources with these frivolous emergency phone calls.  What a waste of tax payers dollars! 

    Besides, IMO, I think the pols/police are just window dressing to appease the hyper-sensitive Hab fans - nothing will come of it.  If the Montreal fans want to show some backbone, fight with the governing body, the jurisdiction of your team first, which is the NHL, something the fans have obviously forgotten.

    Also, could you imagine Bruins fans calling 911 when the NHL ruled a no penalty to the Matt Cooke hit on Savard?  Don't you see how silly that is??  We have laws in this state for frivolous 911 calls for a reason....

    Bottom line - if you want to reduce these types of injuries, which I'm on board with, take a more constructive approach for change by starting with yourselves.  Perhaps set an example by removing the turnbuckle in your venue and lobby the NHL to make that madatory throughout the league.

    From Wedgy:  "If you polled 700 NHL players, 680 would say he knows exactly what he's doing and knows the turnbuckle is there."

    Well so did Pacioretty know where the turnbuckle was.  This rookie has got to pick his moments to try to shine more wisely.  Not a very smart move challenging a world-class veteran, Olympian, Norse trophy winner, and All-star player such as Chara.  Smarten up kid...

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Thoughts from Montreal : With all due respect, outcries usually start when things happen in your own backyard.  I think it's pretty normal. I mean, war on terrorism wasn't started for events that took place in China.  And yes, I think it should change now.  Why would you want to wait ?  What do you suggest ?  Should ppl from Florida take care of that matter ?  Should Montreal have done something about the Cooke-Savard incident ?  Maybe we should have... But my bet on that is that things will change when a bunch of emotionnal ppl do something.  That's usually how things are brought to change, and history was built on personnal emotional blocks... not cold headed thinking intellectuals.

    When we took our fight to the war on terrorism, it was your province and france who stuck their nose up at us and called it unfounded.  So take your real life examples elsewhere, that is exactly the reason for these type of responses from us.

    And by the way, the Max hit on NYI and the Lappierre a few years back were far dirtier hits.  So start the 911 calls and court cases with those two before they go cold.

    Re: Thoughts from Montreal

    Wedgy,  I understand what you are trying to say, however...
    How can you legislate or penalize a player for finishing a check where he is on the ice?  Should you paint that area differant?   Should a player who comes close to checking a player in that area hold back?  This is all getting silly.  I can understand this 22 y/o player being disgusted, not knowing if his career is over.  However, the more celebral people who look back and LOOK at the film, realize there was no intent to injure him, he didn't line him up, the player tried to get inside Chara against the boards.

    A bigger thing going forward is the dangerous talk that politicians and others should know better no to do, and thereby fire up some idiotic fans (we have them too).  I wouldn't be surprised of things being thrown on the ice if we meet in the playoffs in Montreal.  Put this hit in prespective. Again you can't make rule changes and say this is an off limits checking area.  Maybe just remove the glass divider there or pull it back.

    thanks.

    I did not see the hit until just now. I had been listening to this all day on talk radio. I thought I was going to see some outrageous and flagrant hit. You got to be kidding me? Chara throws the guy an elbow while they are both skating forward and looking down ice at the puck.

    Canadian fans were calling 911 over that hit?

    Now I'm sure the world is coming to an end in 2012. The human race has gone batty!

    Take another look at my post. Montrealers are clearly called out:
     
    "Who gives two hoots about the Government in the great white north. All of you Moron-trealers can go the hell in handbasket. Beat it. "

    I am sure my friends in Toronto feel the same. They should all be sent to Europe.

    I can't help but think that this is such a big deal because of who laid the hit & what team he plays for!

    First of all Wedgy, we are not your 'English' neighbors.  We are your USA neighbors (see, no 'u' in neighbors - we fought hard for our independence unlike some other regions in N. America!).  There is no cultural misunderstanding; I just think it's a lack of interest in your culture by the majority of Americans who are not hockey fans.  With all do respect, most Americans don't even know what the capital of Canada is, meaning that, for better or worse, Canada is a non-factor to most Americans.  (The BBC once did a documentary showing how Americans knew so little about their neighbors up north with not knowing what the capital of Canada was as a running theme)

    I think Americans do more for you, than you do for us.

    Having travelled through France many tmes, I truley don't understand the French-Canadian language - are you guys speaking French??  lol

    French Canadiens living in Massachusetts are probably unhappy. Things could get rough at Hampton Beach this summer. Get in line and go to the Cape. "Bon Vieve" or whatever the hell it is. Bring your speedo's (gross).
    Montreal PD to me: "Let me smell your face."
    Me to MPD: "No prob Bud. But don't touch me."
    Went on my way.

    There's more to hockey than the habs. We didn't spend this much time on the Bergy or Savvy hits, which were actually dirty. Get over it.

    Times are changing.  Ppl are beginning to be ticked off by the blood shed in our arenas.  Mentality changes will not take place all over the world at the same time, obviously...  We just got sick of it before you did.  You'll probably end up following, but being a little more blood thursty, it will probably take a serious death of an 18 years old rookie with a chopped off head rolling down the ice.

    Re: Thoughts from Montreal

    Here is the problem Wedgey-D:  many people (and yes - this even includes some Canadiens fans) recognize this as a hockey play gone bad.  We don't feel a need to make a change because nothing wrong (in terms of hockey play) actually happened.  Most of us don't want to see people badly injured either, but trying to conduct a witch hunt on Chara because he managed to hurt someone due to a badly-timed decision and an idiotic arena structure is displacement.  People like you have created a phantom menace to hunt, because one of your own got hurt.  I can understand being upset, but the response is still unwarranted.
