    Same here, On his 31 thoughts Elliott Friedman did link Chara to DET. Depending on his health DDK i'd take a one year chance at Zdeno Chara.

    I just don't see why he does that. Is he really interested in playing just for the sake of hanging on? I he just wants to play for another year stay in Boston hoping they can get it going as they get healthy or go to Ottawa to get back to where it all started - yes, I know his career started with the Islanders. If he wants to challenge for a Cup and doesn't believe Boston can hack it, he has plenty of other options that would be more agreeable.

    If Chara plays for Edmonton they will kill him. A 49 year old should not be chasing down his D partners mistakes and his forwards gaffs in the neutral zone. He will retire by week 4.

    I doubt anyone goes for him. Looked too too slow to play in the league. Only BOS for legacy reasons.

    Canucks should sign him just to troll Boston. Sundin 2.0

    Montreal ?

    They have some space, and could probably use a top 4 LHD still; that is if they decide they have to make the playoffs this year.

    I’m sure teams are interested, but is he? He’ll be 44, he’s a 1st ballot HOFer, he’s a cup champ, he’s made tons of money, and I’m assuming he’s pretty well situated in Boston. Would he really sign a cheap 1-year deal to play in the mess that is going to be the upcoming season?

    That would be hilarious. The hf servers couldn't handle it.

    Leafs are going in hard for all the old slow guys that were great 7 yrs ago. Should be an easy signing.

    And that part was predicated on the whole “overpay them for 3 years” part. Even if these guys wind up sucking, their contracts are up at the end of the season.

    Strangely, the Leafs have a mediocre defense, but are still much better on the left than the Oilers without Klefbom.

    Chara at 52 is still an improvement on Jones and Russell.

    I really hope Chara retires a Bruin signed at a low cap hit with more of a 6/7 leadership role than going off to another team....gives me the willies.....like Broduer.

    He can still be effective as a pk and 3rd pairing type for most teams if he is willing to take that demotion in role. Id assume he would only be looking for a playoff contender though and not want to go anywhere like detroit or new jersey.

    Well, Bruins fans have seen us in enough pain at the Bruins expense, I suppose we could repay them a little :laugh:

    I'd be fine with the Sabres picking up at league minimum to add to our veteran presence for a year.
    Chara did play with Krueger in the World Cup of Hockey.

    I know i have a better chance of getting struck by lightning while scratching a $70M lottery ticket while riding a black stallion backwards in ice skates but as a Canucks fan since drafting Tryamkin (6'8") its been a dream to see him and Chara (6'9") on the ice together.
    They dont have to be good. Just hold hands and skate around swinging their 10ft sticks octopus tag style.
    Ill be a fan forever make it happen Jim!

    I think Chara has more value than a lot of people think (not talking $$ wise) - leadership, can still beat up 99% of the league and is still a serviceable 5/6 dman. Going to be a sad day if he’s not back with the Bruins.

    He sucks now.

    But I'd take him in FLA for a 1 year $750k - $1M

    Teams would be interested. He is still good enough to play a role on a team. He literally just played a big role on one of the best teams in the league. That role should have been dialed back but it is illustrative of the fact he is still an NHLer.
