    Zdeno Chara is an amazing person. When I learned about him, I was fascinated. He is intelligent and holds a job other than professional hockey. What I like about him most is, he's disciplined. I think he should give speeches on being disciplined. Some would appreciate that mainly me, a very proud fan of his.
