After watching this video last night, even the Bruins announcer is yelling at the players to get up and that they are embarrassing pointing out 6'8" Chara dropping like a sack of potatoes.  I chuckled and said watch little Tater is going to 'take' Chara down.

 

Couldn't believe when it happened and he got the penalty.  I've rewatched that play a couple times and Chara totally embellished that, even held Taters stick.  No way a guy that big falls apart like that. 

 

Chumps.

Ya the Tatar call was pretty funny. When Chara wants to stay on his feet he does - lets be honest. I've only seen Chara knocked off balance to the ice by a hit maybe 2 or 3 times ever and I highly doubt Tatar has the leverage to pull him down without slew footing him. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I agree with what others have said in thread, until its not considered just a matching penalty and only the "diver" goes off the ice, nothing will change. I ***** endlessly about this almost every time we played the Sharks in the playoffs.

Surprised no one posted the video of Tatar slamming Chara. Still have a hard time a 6'9 getting taken down to the ice by a guy under 6'.

This is true, so slashing and trying to trip a guy is ok as long as he can take it? Good logic.

 

Bruins had the least amount of power plays this year. If they're embellishing more than other teams, they're really bad at it.
