The main reason I took Chara was to pair him up with "Ching" Johnson, the thinking being that here is a 1-2 on D that can physically stand up to many of the top forward lines in the pool.

Later on, if we need to discuss the playoff record of Chara, I look forward to doing it in the context of my entire team. I think it's safe to say that Chara has never had the luxury of having a defense partner on the level of Ching Johnson or any two forwards to approach the talents of Gordie Howe and Frank Boucher. As a matter of fact, Chara does not have a single teammate selected so far in the ATD and I'm curious if he'll even have one when all the picks are done.

As for his substandard playoff record, he did make it to within one game of the finals in 2003, but his goalie wasn't named Martin Brodeur, he was named XXX XXXX and even then they only fell a goal short.
