Chara Continues To Grow Into Leadership Position

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

Zdeno Chara may finally be rounding into the leader everyone always wanted him to be.

That’s no knock on the 6-foot-9 defenseman and Bruins captain in his fifth year with the team, and his 13th year in the NHL, of course.

It’s more a nod to the demands that come along with wearing the ‘C’ on the Black and Gold sweater of the Spoked ‘B’ tribe, and the downright crazy expectations of a frothy fan base that hasn’t tasted from the Stanley Cup in 39 anguish-filled years.

Chara couldn’t just be a sterling leader by example or the hardest worker on the team as he’s always been during his All-Star, Norris Trophy caliber career with the Islanders, Senators and Bruins
