Why Zdeno Chara is still the NHL’s best defenseman

Despite entering his 17th season, Zdeno Chara will still be the NHL’s best defenseman when the 2014-15 season gets underway.  At 6-foot-9, 256 pounds Chara remains the biggest and one of the most feared players in the NHL.  Having never been blessed with great speed, the veteran defenseman uses his 65-inch stick and over 7-foot wingspan to shut down the NHL’s top offensive...
