Chara signs with Washington as Bruins tell him they don’t want him back - SCoC

It’s not exactly a shock that Chara won’t be suiting up for the Bruins next season, but it’s pretty shocking that it was the Bruins who decided they didn’t want Chara in the mix.

Most people assumed that if Chara didn’t come back, it would be because he retired or he wanted to have one more season with a different franchise.

Watching Brady leave and make the playoffs without the Pats could be made so much sweeter if the Bruins get to watch Chara leave and make the playoffs in Washington while neither Boston squad lives on.
