    Chara Wants to Play Beyond This Season

    Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara enters the coming campaign as one of just two 40-year-olds - the other being Minnesota Wild center Matt Cullen - and while he's had a prolific 19-year career, Chara doesn't see 2017-18 as his swan song.

    "I definitely want to play beyond this season," Chara told Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com. "It's really hard to put a number on it. Some people do and some people don't. I just obviously want to keep playing beyond this season.

    "I love this game too much. I have made no secrets about it. I want to stay here and continue to play."
    "I love the game. I love everything about it. I love the sacrifice and I love the training. There are so many things that are so positive," Chara added. "At my age, I look at what I can still do and just really enjoy it. I just want to keep improving and play for as long as I can."

    Glad he wants to play. I want an 11" cock and bang porn stars all day, but it probably wouldn't end well. Kind of like Chara playing this year, never mind beyond. He's fuckin brutal.

    Well Boston still uses him as a #1. He's not that, but he might be fine on a third pair getting a little PP time. He played 23:20 per night last year and was a +18, had a 52.4% Corsi and had a DZS of 58.9%. That's pretty strong.

    Agreed. In his role, he's ineffective. Isolated? Don't tell me he's not a better options for most teams at 5-6-7 .

    His lack of speed is going to be an issue, but like Future said, if you can get him down in the lineup you can probably get a lot more out of him with less risk.

    Would have liked to see him paired with Dale Rolfe. Would have looked like 2 giraffes back there.
