In case you missed the news yesterday, longtime Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara shocked the hockey world by signing a one year contract with the Washington Capitals.

Check it out:

"We are extremely pleased to have Zdeno join the Capitals organization. We feel his experience and leadership will strengthen our blueline and our team," said Capitals GM Brian MacLellan in a prepared statement. Chara released a statement himself and essentially said that the Bruins walked away from him without giving him a contract offer. 

During a Zoom call with the media earlier today Chara clarified himself and said that the Bruins negotiated in good faith with him, but essentially told him that he'd be nothing but a "reserve player."

Check it out:

That apparently didn't jive with the ultra competitive and motivated Chara, so he elected to move on elsewhere for a better opportunity but not after consulting good friend Tom Brady. 

With Chara's departure from the Bruins and Brady's departure from the Patriots, it's safe to say that Boston sports fans have had a tough 2020.
