The NHL's decision not to suspend Zdeno Chara has certainly spurred conversation on the topic with a wide range of opinions. Even within the Flyers own locker room opinions vary. From the Globe and Mail:
“I could be wrong, but I don’t see anything in the past [from Chara] that’s proven that he intentionally tried to guide him [into the partition] like that,” Flyers defenceman Sean O’Donnell said. “It’s an unfortunate hockey injury. That’s the way I look at it.
“I’ve had some debates with guys in the room. They thought it shouldn’t matter what happened, if you get a guy that’s hurt like that, you should get suspended. I disagree.”
And then there's this from Dan Carcillo, via Sam Carchidi:
Carcillo says if he had thrown same hit as Chara, he wld have been suspended for rest of the season. Chara was not suspended.
And this from Lavy:
Laviolette said the issue had created such a talking point in his dressing room that he was uneasy with taking a strong stand one way or another.
Which leads me to believe that I believe nothing.
