I think you're a little off in suggesting that Chia didn't understand the implications of the deal he signed. He simply didn't foresee Thomas' decision not to play.
I believe it's been reported that PC actually admitted to misinterpreting/misunderstanding the 35+ rule. And if he didn't anticipate there being a chance TT could retire at 39 years old, well than that's his fault.

If TT retired, his contract would be literally untradeable and the Bruins would be stuck with the cap hit.

I'll look for a source to back up my first statement.
