CHARA, BRUINS AT STANDSTILL IN CONTRACT TALKS

Although Zdeno Chara and the Boston Bruins have continued contract talks, it is as if the situation has hit a standstill with the unrestricted free agent defenseman. It seems that both sides are waiting to see what happens with the 2021 NHL season beforemaking a decision. General manager Don Sweeney agrees that not much has changed in terms of finalizing a contract.

"Nope. Same status quo there," Sweeney said. "Waiting to reconnect with (agent) Matt Keator and Zdeno. Chara continues to evaluate what the landscape of the League looks like, and we'll see where it goes. We've had constant communication, but hopefully we've got a target date for this season here at some point in time in the near future and we'll see what the League determines."

The hope is that the NHL season will begin around January 1, 2021, but nothing has officially been agreed to yet. Chara has not been quiet about voicing his opinion on wanting to return to Boston, and Chara believes that he still has some gas left in the tank.



"I feel strong physically," Chara said in September after the Bruins lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning in five games in the best-of-7 Eastern Conference Second Round. "I'm positive and I believe that I can still play this game and contribute to the team. I want to stay in Boston. I want to be a Boston Bruin. … That hasn't changed. I'm committed. So we'll see what's going to happen next."
