So,,,, Chara delivers a head shot in last nights game that typically receives a suspension. The news today,,,,

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun reports that Chara will not face discipline for the hit.

Anybody surprised that the alter boy of the NHL gets away with another one?

This was Kanes reaction BTW

Not a Chara fan in any way. But that fight was fantastic. Kane got what he asked for. He should know better then to poke the Bear.

How is that poking the bear? If a guy hits you in the head, you should have the right to stand up for yourself. Good on Kane for trying and not letting Chara just get away with it because he's a big bully.

Not a "giant" fan of Chara but he basically just stepped in front of him blocking him off. It was a hockey play it's just that Chara is so much taller.

Vulnerable position? Finishing your check? Borderline call in my opinion, I don't think it's a head shot to be honest and I'm definitely not a Chara fan. I just don't see the intention.

Agreed with you guys that there probably wasn't much intent, although he definitely had intent to smoke Pacioretty and he didn't get anything for that either. In this case, though, he does hit Kane in the head. You can say it wasn't a pick play or a blindside, but that's still the primary point of contact. I don't think "Chara is taller" is an acceptable defence. A tall guy isn't allowed to high stick players just because the stick is below his own shoulder level. A short player isn't allowed to clip guys just because he naturally hits lower. Chara is still the one and only person responsible for controlling his body and where he makes contact with another player. It's not the worst hit Chara's ever made but they've suspended other guys for less and my beef is really the inconsistency in these rulings and the fact Chara always seems to get off no matter what the reasoning.

If McDavid's was a suspension worthy check to the head even though unintentional Charas should have been 2 games as well

I would say McDavid's definitely looked intentional to me. Even though they were going back and forth It still didn't look intentional on the Chara hit and Kane did lean forward as he was reaching for the puck. I don't want players getting injured but we are getting to the point where soon there will be very little to none hitting because  of how the other player may turn and what might happen. What ever happened to keep your head up and protect yourself and don't put yourself in a vulnerable position. I like a fast game yes but I like hockey to be a strong physical game also.
