Were you suggesting swapping Lidstrom with Chara would end up with the same results in Boston?
I think he's just saying that Chara's size isn't necessarily what makes him or the bruins so good. You replace him with another perrenial norris contender and you've got more or less the same team. Image, attitude and playstyle wise, he's a perfect fit there, though.
