    and the ruins continue to prove how much of a joke they are..

    sure boychuk can beat up Spacek.. but he needed all the help he can get from his visor when ryan white took him on.

    with 5 minutes left and the game over lucy gets all brave and tough with Pouliot.

    and Chara.. the same Chara who cheap shotted Ivanans breaking his orbital bone after the fight was over..

    if anybody thinks that wasn’t intentional..well get thier heads checked.

    he threw him over into the bench.. anybody with the least bit of class would have just skated in a straight line.

    some captain.. 0-7 in game 7’s in his nhl career..

    once again.. when the bruins are losing.. that team shows 0 composure or class..

    does somebody have to die on the ice before the NHL actually does something?

    this is disgusting

    Habs 4 Lyfe

     

    Chara looked him into the stanchion the whole way, and he didnt let up one bit. Max was out for a long time. Its gotta be a severe concussion. Hopefully the league looks at all the videos available. From all the feeds I have seen Chara had enough time after Pac dumped the puck to size up the situation. He could have passed up on the hit, but didn’t. If BGL was still here Chara would be taking a nap as well.

    Hits from behind are clean

     

    Not players’ faults the rink is designed with boards and glass.

     

    Design a better rink.

     

    See your logic? Insanely stupid.

    Marchand is fitting in perfectly with the Guins!! PK should run him through yet again!!

    White’s fight went a long way to keeping the game… being a game of hockey.  Credit where it’s due.  LOVED Muller getting all over the ref.  Sometimes it’s needed.  Having said that… I LOVE watching the Habs score on the Bruins.  Remove the Patch hit… and I’d have been happy with a slaughter on the scoreboard… and possibly a shut out for Carey if the boys’ heads were more in it in the third.  Understandable though.

    “it isn’t chara’s fault how the rink is constructed”

    - That’s like saying if I hit a guy with my car near a cliff and he falls off, I’m only libel for damaging his bumper. “but but but….if the cliff weren’t there” – you saw the goddamned cliff, did you not?

    Whatever….I’m very angry about this whole thing. Hope Max is ok

  8. rocketsglare says:

    Replay clearly showed Chara use his left arm to push Pacioretty into the stanchion and therefore deliberately attempt to

    injure him. The puck was no where near Pacioretty and was in fact deep in the Bruin zone where another Bruin defender 

    was corralling the puck. An overt attempt IMO by one player to go out and deliberately injure another player. The quest-

    ion now is will the NHL act forcefully and decisively to punish Chara for his deliberate act to injure Pacioretty?

    Go Habs Go!

  9. surprise says:

    clean hit.

     

    not Chara’s fault the turnbuckle was there.

     

    design a better rink.

    You would think a Norris winning defencemen would know where the dangerous parts of a rink are and where you should let up…I guess not so lets just give him the benefit of the doubt…should get 10+ games will get no more than 2 if any

  11. wmarcello says:

    Originally I was on the side of the many who called the hit a regular hockey hit gone wrong. The more I look at that hit though, the more it seems fishy to me. First off, as a former hockey player reminiscing back, I don’t seem to ever remember completely losing my bearings on the ice. I would think as an NHL pro, Chara knew where he was. Second, Zdeno’s hand did come up to shove Max’s upper body at the last moment. Now, that alone isn’t much of an issue, but the fact that Chara didn’t even look back after the hit despite the absolutely terrifying sound, and instead kept skating nonchalantly makes me think that he was not at all surprised that Max hit that turnbuckle. It makes me think that Chara knew full well that Max was going to hit the turnbuckle, and possibly because he meant it to happen. In all of this, the only thing that I think Zdeno didn’t count on is just awkwardly Max was going to go into that turnbuckle and how hurt he was going to end up on the play. I do believe that Chara was not intending to injure Max, but his actions were still reckless and IMO do merit a medium-sized suspension.

    Questions about the hockey expert – the mifget money grabbing dictator Gary Bettman of hockey city New York City. WHY are the 2 benches even next to each other? WHY is that glass partition sticking up there? Why is Montreal the only rink of 30 teams that still has a goal jufdge behind the net or a better question WHY did this dwarf move the other 29 arenas goal judges? BETTMAN CAUSED THIS INJURY! THE MAN IS A MONEY GRABBING LYING PIG!

    “turnbuckle” – is it a boxing ring? NO IT’S GARY MONEY LOVING BETTMAN’S NEW STYLE HOCKEY RINK!

  14. observer says:

    Did the dwarf Bettman with bulging pockets, did Bettman have the Habs report it as an “upper body injury”?

  15. Chuck says:

    The most damning evidence against Chara in the video is that he initially prepares to side-check Pacioretty into the boards in front of the bench, then changes his mind and guides Max’s head into the post.

    He damn well knew what he was doing.

  19. Nahlsy says:

    Honestly, the most damning pieces of evidence are his actions over the previous two games (post OT goal, and during the goon fest last time) combined with simply showing that the puck was in the corner and the hit itself was delivered on the other side of center ice from it.

    There’s clear evidence of premeditated desires to harm Max, and he blatantly drilled a guy causing severe injury that was nowhere near the play at hand and had nothing whatsoever to do with the game on the ice. (ala the Bertuzzi incident exactly 7 years to the day prior to it).

    The hit itself, yes it’s clearly dirty and clearly intentional as well, but those facts are the difference between what warrants a 3 game suspension for a bad hit and a 20 game/year long suspension for a premeditated assault in a successful attempt to cripple somebody half your size.

     

  20. Nahlsy says:

    This is the second time in a year that I’ve seen one of these incidents in which you literally don’t know for several minutes if the victim of the assault is even alive. As difficult as it may be to believe for those of you that had to witness this one as well, this was actually minor in comparison to the first one I had the misfortune of watching, but all the same it’s still disgusting to see what Colin Campbell and his NHL’s pathetic excuse for discipline has allowed the sport of hockey in general to turn into.

    Last year I was witness to a young jr hockey player (16 at the time) having his skull crushed, his helmet exploding on the hit, and then watching him lay on the ice convulsing for about 30-45 minutes before they were able to secure and stabilize him, and get him to a hospital where it was several more days before he regained consciousness and came out of critical condition. The OHL threw the offending predator out of it’s league thankfully and the young man who was hit that late October (2009) day has made most of a recovery. He still hasn’t returned to his team almost two years later, but he has been able to lightly skate a few times at least and is still considered to be a member of the team all the same.

    Hopefully Pax can make a full recovery and isn’t forever hindered by a concussion that costs the league of yet another of it’s young and promising stars while the gong show committee in charge of “justice” has the unmitigated gaul to claim that there’s no concussion problem and that most of the players are really just faking it for the insurance (an actual comment from Colin Campbell, ask me again why that P.o.S. makes me physically ill to even think about him). This isn’t a sport anymore, this is the Roman Collisseum only some teams of gladiators seem to have carte blanche to do whatever the hell they want to whoever the hell they want, whenever the hell they want while others can’t even defend themselves without getting the book tossed at them. The double standards and the bizarre ‘wheel of justice’ combined with the refusal to take head injuries seriously have made the big leagues a farce and the little leagues that look up to these guys and emulate them absolutely terrifying (because it’s kids that are getting maimed in the process)

  21. Itsik says:

    All those sport guys are saying if the hit was anywhere else on the ice it wouldnt be bad. The problem with this analysis is outrages in my opionion. Its like saying, if Hitler was not born in Germany then there would not be a Holocaust. Hitler was born in Germany and that was not the excuse to kill so many innocent lives, same as for Chara, he knew where he is going to hit him, he was aware of the location, the timing, and to prove it, just look at his arm extending at the last second before the hit. If Chara is not disipline, I am affraid the NHL laid another egg here, and what happened next is only a question of time before someone sends flowers to a family of an ex Hockey player….

    The NHL did not disipline the Bruins for February 9 game, and this is why the Islanders took liberty in beating the Pinguins, same here, people will be looking for something, if the NHL is not going to do anything, they will say, hey, we can do it, just make it look like an accident and tell reporters that its unfortunate.

     

    Angel of death is knocking on the NHL door if nothing gets done to both the player and the team.

     

  22. The Cat says:

    My thoughts about the hit are similar to those of Gaston Therrien on Antichambre: I refuse to believe an NHL player could do this deliberatly with intent to injure somebody. I mean I was concerned for his life there for a while. Glad hes ok and hope he has a speedy recovery!

    [Disclaimer]: I’m a hockey fan. I care about the habs, but probably not as much as you.

  23. The Cat says:

    That post is a bit far out. Hitler wasnt born in Germany, he was born in Austria.

    [Disclaimer]: I’m a hockey fan. I care about the habs, but probably not as much as you.

  24. Bob_Sacamano says:

    Hitler was born in Austria but I agree with most of the rest.

  25. 1010 says:

    Media excuses are pouring in fast and furious. Darryl the Dutchman on TSN was talking about the lumber that Max laid on Charas’ back two games ago after the Habs had scored. Uh… ok Darryl.

    On sportsnet and TSN I keep hearing about the type of player that Chara isn’t. By the time the official bruins network gives their version on Saturday night, Chara will have done a good thing.

    PATHETIC…..

     

    GO HABS…

  26. G-Man says:

    I don’t. Chara rammed his head into the stancheon by guiding Pac’s head with his hand. Sure…no intent there. Doh!

  27. BJ says:

    Two more points but a scary 2 points. It brought me back to March 9, 1963 when I was present at the Forum when Lou Fontinato broke his neck when hit by Vic hadfiled. It was the strangest moments of silence I ever encountered in any arena with the thousands of games I covered over the many years. Last night was a similar moment.

     

    I think the solution with the speed of the game and to help out the players that those open areas towards the posts should be “no hit zones” painted like the goalies crease area.

     

    Having said that, after my first reaction to lynch the bastard, I watched the replays and it could be interpreted both ways depending on who you are cheering for. But I think this needs at least a 10 game suspension.

  28. The Cat says:

    About the game: It was nice to see Kirk Muller give the ref a mouthful after the White fight. I believe this and White set the tone for the victory.

  29. HabFanSince72 says:

    The NHL is like the mafia isn’t it? No one in the Canadiens organization, with the exception of Pierre Boivin (is he still with the team?),   said anything. It’s  omerta.

     

     

     

  30. Thomas Le Fan says:

    I ony have two words for Chara. Criminal investigation. That was one of the most flagrantly deliberate attempts to injure that I’ve seen in over 50 years of watching hockey. Pacioretty appears to be alright. I hope so. Not that a concussion is alright but I feared much worse. BROONS GOONS! What sportsmanship! I hope he is given a stiff suspension and I hope it severely hurts the B’s chances at first place in the division.    

    On a nicer note, Eller’s starting to look very good, isn’t he? That second goal reminded me of a former, smooth skating, lanky centre. Marchand is a little cry baby and who didn’t enjoy watching White pounded that creep he took on?

    Go  Habs    

  31. The Cat says:

    Looks bad the way you say it, but there arent many players who throw bodychecks with their legs. I dont believe such evil and disrespect for human life lies in Chara’s head.

    [Disclaimer]: I’m a hockey fan. I care about the habs, but probably not as much as you.

  32. The Cat says:

    Bigger ice surface, boards and glass that have some give, and a standard of proper equipment (not armour)…Its that easy.

    I think it was the four goals and strong team D.

     

     

  34. HabFanSince72 says:

    Before the game  Chara probably  didn’t want to seriously injure Pacioretty.

    After the hit, he certainly hoped Pacioretty wasn’t seriously hurt.

    But, at the time of the hit, and in the seconds just before, that fucking animal was trying to inflict pain.

    Bruins hockey.

  35. clichabs says:

    There’s a poll right here on Boston Globe’s Bruins Blog, please go there and vote for the Chara hit as dirty, so we can show these beanies who’s right:

  36. Brassmonkey says:

    If you own a gun and shoot someone, regardless if it is intentional or not, don’t you get charged and tried for criminal negligence? I think the same factors apply here. Chara is an All Star Defensman and should be held accountable for his actions regardless of intent.

  37. bolder says:

    Chara needs a McSorley type swing to the f***ing head, only a bit harder!! F***ing scumbag! He ran the kid purposely. What goes around, comes around …. Someone should smash Collie’s son! Didn’t he use an elbow pad as a weapon on Pyatt’s face?? This league is a f***ing joke.

  38. The Cat says:

    I dont disagree. I do think all players are trying to inflict some pain when they hit, a few have the physique that help them more in their quest. I like physical hockey but I dont like it when things happen to the head.

    [Disclaimer]: I’m a hockey fan. I care about the habs, but probably not as much as you.

  39. SlovakHab says:

    Chara’s conduct was absolutely unacceptable and he has shown how small of a person he is, make a lot of money or not.

    Shame on him.

    Typical Bruin..

     

    Tell me again why the Habs are so unfortunate to have two absolutely disgusting division rivals in Leafs and Bruins.

  40. savethepuck says:

    I agreed and enjoyed what you had to say.  Unfortunately, I think everyone here has gone to bed.

  41. rocketsglare says:

    Gomez may be many things here on HIO, but he showed leadership in standing up to Chara and telling him off.

    Go Habs Go!

     

  42. Rainrocket16 says:

    On a somewhat lighter note! Max Pac is the toughest Hab we have had since Jon Kordic!! Chara will likely get nothing out of this, so don’t hold your breath!! I am hoping they throw the book at him!! But doubtful!! I will say the best move ever was letting Ryan White play against the Guins and Whoop Boychucks Assets!!! White should be a starter for us come playoff time!!! Price was a monster yet again! This team is at a Pinnacle of the season! We may be the Northeast Champs yet!!

  43. scrowe21 says:

    I didn’t say that it would, fool.

    I just hate them all.

  44. idle says:

    Yes, lets smash him in the face really hard with a hockey stick.  That will help Pacioretty get better.

    Fool.

  45. scrowe21 says:

    Good to hear. He’s a tough kid, I wish him a speedy recovery. I don’t expect to see him back this year. Its a shame because he was really breaking out. Hopefully he can be this good again next year. 

    As for Chara, I would like to see someone take a baseball swing at his teeth. Maybe line up Lucic,Marchand,Horton to that list too.

  46. CanadienFanTrappedinNiagaraFallsNY says:

    Does putting murderers in prison or executing them bring back the victims? Society likes revenge, it NEEDS it. Wouldn’t function without.

  47. Nahlsy says:

    May make one of these thugs think twice before they do this again though if there was some form of consequence for their actions for a change. There isn’t any coming from the league itself obviously. Look at Chara’s actions two games ago or the entire lineup of thugs in the previous game for example.

  48. idle says:

    It’s hard to say.  When you see that clip and the hit full speed from the far angle (as soon as the clip starts) it makes it seem like Chara simply rubbed him into the boards in front of the bench (you can argue whether or not players should even do that, but you see it all the time with players being dumped right into the benches) and they went too far and he hit the stanchan.

    When you see the slow replay at the end of the clip that shows Pacioretties face going right into the divider, it does look much worse, but is that only because you get a better look at the unfortunate outcome??

     

    Either way I don’t like being in the position of having to defend Chara, a player who I have a strong distaste of.  I just think it is easy to be emotional about it when it happens to your team and to start screaming for long suspensions.  I have seen many hits with much worse intentions then that that have not resulted in injury so they are ignored.

    I guess only Chara knows what he really was thinking.

  49. stephen says:

    I’m not sure a hypothetical hit by Moen or P.K. is of any pertinence to the issue at hand.

    The issue is that Chara acted in an extremely reckless manner and should be punished accordingly. To try to bluff his way out of it and claim he didn’t really realize where they were is patently disingenuous.

     

  50. christophor says:

    There is a difference between intentional and reckless. The latter is no less deserving of punishment. He should have let up BECAUSE he should have been aware of his surroundings. Absolutely reckless and dangerous.

    He should be gone for a while. 

  51. idle says:

    I am as anti head shot, goonary and unnecessary fighting as it gets, but I have to say after watching the video several times, I can’t find anything especially egregious on Chara’s part (btw Chara is one of my top 5 most disliked players in the league).

    If anything the hit was late but that happens 10 times a game.  It was not a head shot or an elbow like Pat Hickey is suggesting.  It was at most an unnecessary hit in an akward area of the rink.  Chara should have eased up after the puck left the area and knowing it was near the bench, but anyone who tries to suggest that Moen or P.K or other Habs would not have thrown the same hit in a similar situation is not being honest with themselves.

    I hope Pacioretty is O.K

  52. OneTimer says:

    he’s gonna get a light tap on the wrist, such as 2 games or so. Don’t finalize that bet bro :)

  53. kmachabs27 says:

    ill go to vegas right now and bet my house that Chara will not be suspended.

  54. scrowe21 says:

    Whats the newest on Max? Has a broken neck been ruled out yet? Obviously a concussion at the very least..

  55. blu3chip says:

    Hopefully just a very mild concussion.

  56. SeriousFan09 says:

    No broken neck, but a concussion and he was out for a few minutes I believe. That severe a concussion IMO, probably safest thing for him is not to resume play until next season. Not sure if that is correct but how I feel, this is the kid’s brain and that can’t heal. He’s a young man, he potentially has a long NHL career in front of him, don’t need to rush him back.

     

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  57. MTLForever says:

    nothing new it seems but that his dad told his agent that he will be okay 

  58. MTLForever says:

    Chara knew where he was, end of story. He looked.

  59. pmaraw says:

    ya, he timed it perfectly also, ‘here ya go eat the turnbuckle’ he knew where he was he was bsically staring at it the whole time.

  65. Nahlsy says:

    Ironic observation:

    March 8th, a player that’s wanted revenge on another player has a pre-meditated attack on that player with the game out of hand, nowhere near the play. The victim is strapped to a backboard and taken to hospital to find out if he gets feeling in his extremities back.

    Oh this was March 8th, 2004. Seven years ago when Betruzzi attacked Steve Moore. Although I suppose that all fits 100% accurately with the incident yesterday as well. Go figure. I’m betting Chara gets nowhere near the punishment for his obvious premeditated assault though.

  66. Nahlsy says:

    Does anyone remember the last cheap shot that maimed a Hab that was punished by the league? If that was a Hab stalking and then maiming a Bruin like that though… whoo he’d never play again.

DeepZoom “allows users to explore collections of super high resolution imagery, from a 2 or 3 megapixel shot from a digital camera to gigapixel scans of museum pieces, all without waiting for huge file downloads,discount microsoft office pro 2010,” as Microsoft explains on its Web site. DeepZoom is based on the SeaDragon technology that Microsoft acquired in 2006. meanwhile, “is a web site where anyone can upload their photos and turn them into zoom-able, pan-able albums, using the Deep Zoom technology in Silverlight 2 Beta 1.” (Microsoft released Beta 1 of Silverlight two to testers last week at Mix.) Microsoft did not talk about PhotoZoom at all at Mix — at least not in any of the talks or sessions I attended; the LiveSide guys unearthed PhotoZoom last week. Matt Augustine cautioned that PhotoZoom is not an officially supported Microsoft service at this point. Augustine blogged: is an experimental project developed by a small group of Microsoft developers, and it is definitely not an official, supported Microsoft product. Also, I cannot make any guarantees that it will be operational at all times,microsoft windows 7 ultimate 32bit, that it will support a large number of users,office 2010 64bit sale, etc. This is not an official Microsoft press release and I am not a spokesperson. I can’t make any suggestions about future Microsoft product releases related to this technology or concept. In other words,microsoft office Professional x86 key, I hope people will have fun with it, but please set your expectations accordingly.” DeepZoom and PhotoZoom are Microsoft Live Labs projects. (Live Labs is the mash-up of Microsoft researchers and Windows Live team members working on experimental technologies that Microsoft believes need to be fast-tracked into commercial products.)

    is sending some highly perplexing signals about Windows Vista — the latest of which it issued via a statement on October 3. Register reported on October 2 that Microsoft was going to extend again the date until which PC makers would be allowed to continue to offer Windows users “downgrade rights,” enabling them to switch from Vista to XP on new machines. The Reg said Microsoft had moved the downgrade cut-off date from January 31, 2009 to July 31, 2009. asked Microsoft about the Reg’s report and got this statement,microsoft windows 7 home premium upgrade key, via a company spokesperson: more customers make the move to Windows Vista,discount microsoft office 2007 license, we want to make sure that they are making that transition with confidence and that it is as smooth as possible. Providing downgrade media for a few more months is part of that commitment, as is the Windows Vista Small Business Assurance program (available in the U.S. only),microsoft office 2010 pro plus code, which provides 1-on-1,office 2010 pro plus x86, customized support for our small business customers.” other words, the Reg’s story was correct. spokesperson sent further clarification: changing is Microsoft is giving six more months where it will provide downgrade media for XP Professional for OEMs and system builders to provide to their customers who purchase Windows Vista Ultimate and Business editions – (which the company figures will be) largely going to be small businesses since that’s the audience that would want/use XP Pro. So it’s the same old downgrade right thing that was in the EULA (End User License Agreement) before; it’s just Microsoft is providing the media to partners a few months more.” same caveat with providing the downgrade media as before applies, which is OEMs and system builders don’t have to do so if they don’t want – it’s their business decision to make.” has extended XP’s end-of-life date before. In Apri 2008 l, Microsoft officials said the company was not going to extend again the date on which it required OEMs to stop preloading XP on new machines. That date was June 30, 2008. Microsoft did say that system builders, a k a white box vendors, would be allowed to continue to preload XP on new systems until January 31,microsoft windows 7 cd key sale, 2009. OEMs and system builders both were OK’d to continue preloading XP on new ultra-low-cost systems through 2010, as many of those systems were and are incapable of running Vista. line: Even though Microsoft is maintaining publicly that Vista is finally ready for prime time, it is allowing PC makers to continue to offer customers XP. So what’s a user to believe? Is Microsoft really standing behind Vista? And if it’s not — but instead is doing what customers really want (while simply giving lip-service to Vista’s readiness — is that still a positive?

    I think Bob McKenzie is acting like a hypocrite, and isn’t judging the whole situation, completely disregarding the fact that Chara has tried to injure Pacioretty before. By the logic used by McKenzie and the rest of the MSM right now I could go and run over a pedestrian with my car, and it wouldn’t be my fault, it’d be the car’s fault for being constructed so dangerously. f***ing disgrace. These people are crying constantly about concussions ad nauseum, yet they’re the first to rally behind a dirty hit and call it clean.

    March, I ran on my blog site a slide that showed Microsoft’s datacenter expansion plans for its Online Services, the team that oversees Microsoft’s hosted cloud offerings like the Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS). April 14, Microsoft announced the global expansion plans indicated by this slide. BPOS commercial availability is being added in April for 17 new markets. As of today, Microsoft is adding support for the Czech Republic, Cyprus,microsoft office Professional 2007 cd key, Greece, Hong Kong,microsoft windows 7 professional update key, Hungary, Israel, Luxembourg, Poland and Romania. Later in April, Microsoft is adding: Brazil,cheap microsoft windows 7 32bit key, Costa Rica, Chile,office pro plus activation key, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico and Trinidad & Tobago. that were on the November BPOS roadmap slide but are not part of this announcement: Malaysia, South Korea and Taiwan. (South Korea and Taiwan were mentioned as countries which would be added to the line up in July 2010, according to the November roadmap). Countries for which BPOS support was announced today that weren’t mentioned in November included Cyprus, Luxembourg, Costa Rica, Peru and Trinidad & Tobago. line: Microsoft is sticking pretty close to plan. However, roadmaps change. That’s one reason Microsoft execs hate for them to be made public…. BPOS team also announced today that U.S. customers using the BPOS Dedicated service now have access to “voice in the cloud” via Office Communications Online. The voice capability allows users to make and receive calls anywhere using their PC and broadband connection, potentially reducing the load on customers’ existing PBX systems. Global Crossing is the provider of this new BPOS-D option, according to the blog site post. officials told customers and partners late last year to expect Microsoft to roll out Communications Server 2007 Online functionality gradually to BPOS-Standard and BPOS-Dedicated customers. Even though Office Communications Server 2010 is slated to ship by the end of this calendar year, Microsoft Online customers aren’t expected to begin to obtain pieces of that functionality until 2011, for the most part. other recent cloud news, Microsoft also has added 20 more markets to its Azure availability plan. In February, Microsoft made Azure commercially available to customers in 21 markets. On April 12,discount office 2010 64 bit key, Microsoft added 20 more markets to the list of places where customers can develop for and use Windows Azure, SQL Azure and the Windows Azure AppFabric platform. of the new Azure countries are the same ones for which Microsoft is adding BPOS support this month. However, BPOS is not hosted on Azure at this time. Microsoft officials haven’t shared a timetable for when Microsoft plans to host its own Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Communications Online, CRM Online and other hosted services to Azure.
