Zdeno Chara’s Future With the Bruins

For a decade, the Boston Bruins have leaned on Zdeno Chara as the cornerstone of both their defense and their team as a whole. Over the course of his career with Boston, Chara has been at the center, acting as their shutdown number-one defenseman while serving as the team’s captain. Following Boston’s Stanley Cup run […]

Boston Bruins Expansion Preview: No Defensemen Left Behind

Boston Bruins Expansion Preview: No Defensemen Left Behind

To maximize his offseason, Don Sweeney needs to keep Vegas away from his defensemen There’s a bit of a log jam on defense. Weird, I know, but sometimes life comes at you fast. Plus owning in bulk isn’t always a bad thing, just ask Karen, Costco’s reigning customer of the month. Here’s the deal with Boston’s blueline come next Fall, you can pencil in 4 names: Brandon Carlo, Zdeno Chara, Torey Krug and Charlie McAvoy. After these 4, there are 3 defensemen, all right-handed shots, remaining under contract: Adam McQuaid and the Miller’s, Colin and Kevan. Two from this trio will be...

Zdeno Chara was still taking crazy minutes at his age in 2016-17

Zdeno Chara was still taking crazy minutes at his age in 2016-17

He played the vast majority of the games he was in, but does he have enough left in the tank for one more year? Evaluation: What is there to say about Zdeno Chara at this point. He’s 40 years old, will be bordering 41 by the time his contract is up, which has now gone down to about 4 million against the cap. He has been the captain for a solid decade. His pro hockey career is a year younger than the nation he represents (or...well..used to represent) at the Olympics. And like clockwork, he’s taking almost all the icetime the Bruins could provide for him. Again. Zdeno Chara had over 1750...

Brandon Carlo hit the ground running in 2016-17

Brandon Carlo hit the ground running in 2016-17

The youth movement in Boston had to do a lot this year, and few had to do more of it than Brandon Carlo. Evaluation: Brandon Carlo certainly made the most of his first year in the NHL. Getting his job out of camp, Brandon Carlo’s positive first impression was only made better by the fact that he kept making that impression over and over again by taking both insane minutes and stepping up to the task. In year one. It helps that Carlo had a hell of a partner in Zdeno Chara, but he was capable from the start; able to hold his own in keeping shots down, protecting Rask, retrieving pucks along...
