Who exactly are the "Chara's of the world", and why don't more teams get the opportunity to sign them?

Boston got very lucky that Ottawa let him slip. You haven't really seen a similar calibre defenceman move except for Suter (who likely won't hit Chara's peak) and that required a 100 mil contract.
