Boston Bruins: Zdeno Chara deserved to be fined for cross-check

There’s plenty of reasons Boston Bruins fans could list as to why Zdeno Chara was undeserving of a fine. Unfortunately, in my mind; none of them hold water. A cross-check to an unprotected part of the body, specifically one as fragile as a neck is dangerous, plain and simple.

Now, people may argue that other teams have gotten away with far worse against the Boston Bruins and argue about double standards. They aren’t wrong.

Jeremy Lauzon, a first time offender, deserved a slap on the wrist, a fine and a firm cease-and-desist for his somewhat accidental check to Derek Stepan‘s head.
