P.K. Subban pays Zdeno Chara massive compliment on Bruins star's Instagram post

Share

Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara and Nashville Predators star P.K. Subban have had plenty of battles from the latter's days with the Montreal Canadiens, but there's still an enormous amount of respect between the two defensemen.

Chara posted a heartfelt Instagram on Sunday to thank Bruins fans for their support, and he received many comments from people in the hockey world, including one from Subban that paid Boston's captain a tremendous compliment. Check out the exchange between the two in the tweet below:

This response from Subban is just one example of how much respect NHL players have for Chara. He's a great player, an awesome teammate and respects his opponents -- very much like longtime Detroit Red Wings captain and defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom.

Chara is signed through next season, and vowed in his Instagram post the Bruins "will be back." You can bet the heartbreak of the Bruins' Stanley Cup Final loss to the St. Louis Blues will serve as a huge source of motivation for Chara as he prepares for the 2019-20 campaign.
