Not sure about Chara's junior days/stats, but he definitely wasn't the scary ****er we all know now until after about 4 years in the league + a trade. Defensemen tend to take longer to hit their peak in the NHL than forwards. Sekera just had a breakout year defensively for Buffalo, and he was (I think?) 25 last season.
