After Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara confirmed yesterday he had recently spoken with Montreal’s Max Pacioretty and just left it at that, Elliotte Friedman of the CBC went the extra mile to follow up.

Friedman spoke with Pacioretty’s agent Alex Schall, who is also the agent for Boston defenseman Steven Kampfer, about the Chara-Pacioretty chat, which would’ve been the first contact between the two players since their collision March 8 in Montreal.

Here’s what Schall told Friedman for his 30 Thoughts column on

“It was a private conversation, so I’m not privy to exactly what was said. But, when it was over, Max indicated he felt relieved. They may never go for lunch together, but the hard feelings between them are definitely over.”

Pacioretty should be “relieved” enough to make a plea for this ridiculous police investigation end. Just think how he’d feel if the roles were reversed. Nonetheless, I’m sure Pacioretty has a much different view of Chara now than he had before, as most people that get to know the Boston captain usually do.
