    If Bruins will say NO to Chara. Will there be any other team, that will make him an offer?

    What would his team mates say if they say no?

    For reference, how did Martin Brodeur's team mates react when the Devils didn't want him back? What was the Chelios situation?

    I'm sure there will be teams making offers. The question is if he's willing to sign with a team that's not a contender.

    In the 31 Thoughts podcast, Jeff Marek or Elliotte Friedman recently speculated that Detroit would be interested in both Chara and Krug.

    100% some team would take him if the Bruins bail on him.

    Someone will sign him for sure. He is still an elite PKer and he and McAvoy formed a very effective shutdown pairing where Chara just kinda guards the net and McAvoy does everything else. But it really holds McAvoy back in the two way game and the Bruins need more offense at 5 on 5. I wouldn’t be shocked if he came back to Boston for another year if they have the cap space, but if can’t be to play with McAvoy unless the team is protecting a lead in the 3rd.

    Better than both Jack Johnson AND Mike Matheson combined and they're on the same team. So, yeah. Somebody would pay Chara.

    I think Vegas would be the one team who could sign him outside Boston.

    But as much as I hate the Bruins it'd suck to see him not retire a Bruin.

    Hes old, hes slow, hes washed up. Leafs sign him to a three year overpaid deal that they regret immediately the following season. Then they will try to flip him and give up some more assets in order to dump his contract.

    I think contending teams should be interested if the Bruins are not. Sign Z on a 1 year to kill penalties and play limited 5 on 5 minutes. It would be a bummer to see him in another uniform though.

    Honestly I don't think he brings much other than some good leadership. Has looked pretty slow when playing the Lightning. Most teams are trying to get that edge in speed. I just dont think he's a great get unless you need some veteran leadership. Maybe a team like Buffalo could use him.

    He’s been slow forever. He makes up for it with his 14 foot reach. He still played 21 minutes this year on the top team in the league.

    That is your hope, it won't be a reality.
    Also, there is such a track record, of the Leafs signing slow players :eyeroll:

    No way Chara doesn’t get an NHL deal. If it’s not the bruins then it’ll be someone else. He can still play sheltered minutes and his reputation precedes him

    Chara can still play sheltered minutes and I imagine he wouldn't be very interested in a team unless they throw some big money at him.
