Don Cherry reacts to Chara's departure from the Boston Bruins

Grapes is not happy!


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. Bruins management is reportedly looking to put some of its younger defencemen into the lineup this upcoming season, pushing Chara out the door. If that frustrates you as a Bruins fan, you're not alone. Twitter, Facebook and other social media channels are full of angry Bruins fans due to this news... and they're not alone. Bruins royalty, the inimitable Don Cherry, is in agreement with Bruins fans: This team is going to miss him.

 No doubt about it, it's going to look weird seeing Big Zee wearing a Caps jersey in 2021.
