...I was just looking at how weak the Wild and Wing D were and it got me thinking how fortunate the B's have been that Chara has never really been out of the lineup for any significant amount of time. I mean, the big guy has only missed 15 regular season games in his 6 years as a Bruin. Pretty amazing considering his size, physicality, and number of minutes he plays. The B's would be in serious trouble if he ever goes down. The B's definitely hit a home run signing him all those years ago(uh oh, hope I did not just jinx him).
