ZDENO CHARA RUMORS & GOSSIP

After quiet summer, Chara hoping for consistency from Bruins

Zdeno Chara struggled with injuries through most of the 2014-15 season, so it makes sense that the defenseman stayed quiet over the summer. Chara said in a recent interview with NHL.com that he did not do much traveling, instead choosing to take it easy to gear up for the 2015-16 season.But while Chara took it easy, the team's front office kept busy, trading away Dougie Hamilton...

Chara and Jagr defying age in a young man’s NHL

It used to be that the veteran players were the leaders on any given NHL team, however times are changing. Many NHL players see their peak performance before the age of 27 these days. By the time a player gets to age 37, he is a good 10 years past his prime. In fact the NHL had just 18 players over 36 years of age last season. Only six of those players (Craig Adams, Martin St...

Bruins owner wants to write off team meals as tax deductions

Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs has the reputation of being … well, frugal. From going from charter flights to commercial, to making their non-playing employees pay the taxes on their 2011 Stanley Cup rings, the comparison to C. Montgomery Burns seems apt. This comparison will evolve further as Jacobs is currently fighting the IRS to get the team’s meals on the road written off...

Zdeno Chara would like to play for “another three years”

Zdeno Chara is going to be sticking around for a little bit longer. The 6’9″ Bruins defenseman told Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun that he could see himself playing up until the end of his current contract. “My contract goes for another three years and I’d like to play until then,” he said. “I think we still have a competitive team with some good young players...

Zdeno Chara: Missing Playoffs ‘Makes You Want To Get Back There Even More’

The 2014-15 season was a difficult one for Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara. The 38-year-old defenseman suffered a PCL tear in his left knee in October and missed 20 games, but when he returned to game action, he wasn’t the same Norris Trophy-caliber player (although analytics prove he still was a legit top-pairing defenseman). The Bruins, who finished with 96 points, missed...

WILMINGTON, Mass. — Zdeno Chara has played in 12 games for the Boston Bruins since returning to the lineup after missing nearly two months with a PCL tear in his left knee suffered on Oct. 23. Chara hasn’t played at his usual Norris Trophy-caliber level at either end of the ice in those 12 games. It’s obvious that he’s not yet at 100 percent health, but the B’s captain...

Big trouble for Bruins: Chara out 4-6 weeks, possibly more

(Photo/Getty Images) Was it irony, or sheer luck that the Boston Bruins lost their best defenseman on the night that they played the recently traded Johnny Boychuk? Everyone knew that this day would eventually come, but we didn’t know when it would be here. The Bruins depend on Zdeno Chara for so much on the back end that he has become a staple for every situation. His excellent...
