    I saw a quote from Reilly Smith that was pretty funny about this, basically said he wouldn't suggest fighting Chara as his first choice for his brother to make!

    Opponents are lucky Chara is pretty selective as to when he scraps these days, the dude could seriously hurt people out there if he wanted to.

    Yeah I've heard since he smoked, Pacioretty, he's considered not only his fighting but his physical play a bit more then he use to.

    Impressive that Chara has the strength to hold Reilly off with one arm. Reminds me of the story told by Stan Smyl of how he once slugged Dave Semenko as hard as he could, and instead of killing Smyl Semenko simply laughed and skated away.

    I think it's more emasculating to have the other player laugh at you while your flailing LOL

    I like after that gif ends, Smith breaks loose and starts chirping, motioning for Chara to drop his stick. So Chara does, and Smith just continues to chirp and skate backwards away from him.

    No fear, my kind of player.

    One could argue that he isn't too smart to be acting in this manner but I'd prefer to have guys on my team that aren't afraid to stand up for themselves, compared to the alternative.

    I thought it had to do with him breaking his hand after a fight a few years ago in the playoffs.

    I've never liked that kind of thing. Respect your opponent. We all know that Chara's big and strong, and he could mess someone up; he doesn't have to laugh in the face of a grown man standing up for himself. It's not a huge deal, but it rubs me the wrong way. For the record, I like Chara as a hockey player.

    That's an advantage of being the biggest. You can do stuff like that and who's gonna stop you? If they wanna try, they can go for it.....see that Islander's rookie knock John Scott out a week or two ago?
