Mike Murphy ' s Top Ten Excuses For Not Suspending Zdeno Chara


As we are well aware …

The NHL did not suspend Chara for his reckless ‘ shove ‘ of Max Pacioretty from behind and into the partition while Pacioretty was no longer in possession of the puck.

At first , Habs fans were very angry toward Mike Murphy , Colin Campbell and Gary Bettman for the injustice toward our up and coming star player.

Since the storm that we call emotions has passed , we have discovered that Mike Murphy and the NHL have a lot on their plates and therefore have legitimate reasons for reaching their conclusion.

Here now are Mike Murphy ‘ s top ten excuses for not suspending Zdeno Chara ….

10. The report on Bob Probert’s brain injuries is a very long read and it disrupted me .

9. Every time I started to review the incident , Sidney Crosby kept calling to tell me  he ‘s bored !

8. Hey ! I play ball hockey against Chara in the summer !

7. I could not see the replay very well , the partition skewed my view …

6. The ‘ Situation ‘ does that to ‘ Snookie ‘ on the  T. V show Jersey Shore everyday  - he doesn’ t get suspended !?

5. The Bruins ‘ Marc Savard is out with a concussion .Our policy in the NHL is simple ; keep things even!

4. Boy – that Probert report keeps going and going and going …
