Its more than a story actually. Thanks for posting this.
Its a big reason why I believe Sid was ineffective the rest of the series. By doing this, Chara showed that not only WOULD he do it, he would not get caught, penalized or punished in any way by the NHL or the Pens. Let that get into the head of Sid and worm its way around. If only he had of kept his chin guard on.
As for the comment that "Shrek" should have gone after him.... no. Murray is not an enforcer, nor does he have the history with Sid to go after him.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I agree with Don Cherry in that the Pens need a winger for Sid like Lucic. Someone who will protect him and enact vengence should **** like this happen.
If stuff like this takes Crosby off his game, that's a statement about Crosby, not Chara.
Of course it is. Crosby is HUMAN. I cannot imagine what its like to take a slapshot in the face. Let alone sit out a bazillion games, and possibly not be normal again (ala Pronger and countless others) for his previous two serious issues. What would take you off your game? He's got a broken freaking jaw, and when the largest player (likely human in the entire state) gets a free punch to your face while your held? Sid is many things, but he's human. In my mind, this took Sid off his game.
