Boston Bruins: Zdeno Chara’s last chance for another Stanley Cup?

The 6’9″ Czech very quickly became the face of the Boston Bruins and the big, bad brand of hockey they played. Posting seven, almost eight, 40-point seasons in a row and in only 2 seasons he did not have a positive plus/minus score. That was in his first season with Boston and in the 14-15 season, which is understandable because only two of the eight defenseman at the time had a positive plus/minus. Zdeno Chara was third with 0; not even a negative!

He’s had decent seasons since then, but has definitely regressed since his prime and until last year still looked like a NHL defenseman.
