    Amazing, what professional individuals can do for a franchise.

      I know a lot of Capitals and Bruins fans say he's done, but I also read that he's still a top notch PK guy.

          Zdeno Chara: "It's kind of a full circle. Who would know the way this would work out after 20-something years." #Isles

            Zdeno Chara says he's "honored" to return to #Isles organization. Obviously sees "positivity" in organizational turnaround. Says there were other teams interested in him.

              Favorite Zdeno Chara story. In his rookie year he took a seat next to me on the team bus. I was seated at the window, and when he sat down he pinned me so hard against the glass I thought he was mad at me. He said, “Sorry I so big”. Great guy and gentle giant. Welcome back, Z.

                Chara on what he knows about the #Isles management in Lou Lamoriello and Barry Trotz: "Very structured, very disciplined, very organized, very professional."

                  Newest #Isles D Zdeno Chara has played 1,608 NHL regular-season games. He can pass Chris Chelios (1,651) this season for the most NHL regular-season games played by a defenseman.

                    I really like this. Pair him with Dobson and let him show him the way defensiively. They can complement each other and Dobson can learn!

                      I always liked him and believe he will be a big asset to the team.

                        I'm not going to lie. I'm one of those people. However, with saying that in the Cap world no team has the perfect line up. But this Islander line up with the addition of Chara is just about as close as you can get. Right now Chara fills a big need for the Islanders.

                        I'm sure Matty will be happy he doesn't have to fight big Z anymore.

                        I could see the Isles and Rangers rivalry picking up intensity with the Rangers now built more to fight and the Isles can throw Chara, Martin and Johnston at them. Should be a great year!

                        Such a great story about Chara coming full circle.

                        My preseason pick last year to win the Cup was the Av's and I was going to go with them again this year. But now with NO rose colored glasses on I have to say the Islanders have to be the Number 1 favorite to win the Cup!

                        This season can't start soon enough! LGI
