Is any athlete on the planet worth $7.5 million a year? Probably not. But, at the very least, you’d expect someone earning that kind of green to be an impact player who makes your team significantly better than it would be without him.
In the final analysis, that can’t be said about the Bruins with Chara.
The trouble with standing 6-foot-9 and weighing 275 pounds is that you become an even bigger target when things go wrong. And when your salary matches your imposing physical stature, the expectations can be even greater.
Chara hasn’t lived up to them.
