Blueberries Posted February 18, 2015 Share Posted February 18, 2015 Mark Spector of Sportsnet: Spector on Bruins Zdeno Chara. Zdeno Chara turns 38 in March, and has become to the Bruins what Jarome Iginla was to the Calgary Flames: that ageing superstar whom the Bruins need to make the playoffs for the next couple of seasons, but whose value will then slip to the point where any trade return on him is negligible. The Bruins wouldnt trade Chara now, as the playoffs are still a possibility, but the decline has begun. The Bruins could use a right winger and a top-four defenseman before the deadline. Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Zdeno Chara will be 38 next month and has two years left on his deal at a $6.8 million cap hit. He was a runner-up for the Norris last season, but hes slowing down. Hes played almost 1,200 regular season games, to go with 141 playoff games. His salary drops to $5 million next year, and $4 million in 2016-17. Is it time for the Bruins to move him? Would the Ducks be interested? GM Bob Murray wouldnt trade any of Cam Fowler, Hampus Lindholm or Sami Vatanen, but hey do have Shea Theodore, young forwards in Emerson Etem, Nick Ritchie, Nicolas Kerdiles, Kyle Palmieri, Rickard Rakell, Devante Smith-Pelly, William Karlsson, Jacob Silfverberg, and a 1st round pick. Should the Bruins trade Zdeno Chara?http://www.mynhltraderumors.com/2015/02/18/rumors-iv-with-video-chara-seidenberg-erikson-kessel-and-glencross/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
