    B's Defense 2011

    With the move of Wideman, I still think were ALMOST all set on the blue line pending the resign of Boycuk and Stuart.  If read that PC is shopping the draft for another Defenseman. You hear that? 

    We might have one of the best set of D liners in the leauge.

    Chara Boychuk
    Stuart Sidenberg
    McQuaid Hunwick
    Afggkgy ( forgot his name the guy we just got) Ference
    Plus Wozniewski  


    Any problems with this?

    Boychuk is a career minor leaguer who is probably leaving town because some NHL GM is a dolt.  McQuaid is a career minor leaguer.  Alexandrov hasn't played a game in the NHL.  Hunwick stinks.  Ference is average on his best days.  Woz is a career minor leaguer.

    Yeah, I have a problem with almost all of that.

    Seideberg was signed to be a top pairing guy. Chara - Seids Stuart (RFA) Boychuk (UFA) Ference - Hunwick Thats weak. Ference is not going to be a "fourth pairing," which means AHL, guy, he is going to be a 3rd pairing guy. By Afggkgy do you mean Yuri Alexandrov? he will be in the AHL. So your entire second pairing is not signed, and one is a UFA. Hunwick has shown flashes of great play, but a lot of weaknesses, and although I like Ference, everyone hates him. Our blueline needs a LOT of help. Short term, short money, look at leopold.

    Ference will absolutely be on the second pairing.  Im not saying I necessarily agree with it, but he will.  He spent most of his Bruins career on the second pairing and just got a raise.  I dont think they would have given him that much money to be on third pairing....

    I envinsion this:

    Chara Seidenberg
    Stuart Ference
    Hunwick McQuaid

    At least to start the year.  We'll (hopefully) see some of the prospects at some point.

    They got it done with a lesser group last year.  I admit that its not reasonable to expect Tuuka to repeat performance , but something must be said for the fact that the team didnt let up a lot of goals last year.....

    And if you count Seidenberg as an acquistion  (which is only fair if you're comparing the upcoming year to last), then you could make the D got even better....

    Assuming, of course, we come to terms with stuart.

    Hunwick needs to go - keep Boychuk

    I say we trade Hunwick, sign Stuart and Boychuk, and I think if we clear more cap space, we may go after Gonchar's negotiating rights or just sig him flat out.  I'd love to see:

    Chara - Gonchar
    Seidenberg - Stuart
    Boychuk - Ference
    Kampfer/Bartkowski/Alexandrov

    Re: B's Defense 2011

    Its interesting but without the 15th overall pick (which we were going to package to get a top 5 pick) it seems like we will need to package someone big to land in the 3-6 range. We want to get in that range to draft a "franchise" defenseman. Will this franchise defenseman mean that Chara is long gone? He enters the last year of his contract. Doesnt seem like the bruins are really looking to resign him anytime soon. Is he the perfect piece to package for an exchange for an 18 year old Cam Fowler? I think its a possibilty.

    They ain't going to sign Gonchar. He's looking for $6+ for 2 years, and the B's are not going to pony up that kind of cash for a 36 yr old D.

    Hunwick and McQuaid aren't starting material.  Good god.  McQuaid cannot skate. He's a borderline NHL player. Hunwick is more of a forward.  He can skate, but that's it. No size, no real consistency. Maybe he can improve, but counting on Hunwick as part of a top flight D corps is not going to work.

    But Huwwick was +15 a couple of seasons ago!  How many 23 year olds can you name that can do that?

    (Before anyone jumps on me for talking about Hunwick in this glowing fashion, I'm using an argument that Russ used to pump up Wideman from a different thread.)

    He's looking for 3 years $6M +, but two years $5M + wouldn't be a surprise.

    I wouldn't say he is a career minor leaguer. Boychuck has a rocket of a shot close to Chara's and he showed in the playoffs that he can hit. And when he plays big minutes with Chara, he plays great.

    374 AHL regular season games, 56 NHL regular season games, 26 years old.

    Big shots from the point don't help if they don't go in (Shooting percentage:  5.05%)

    Chara can make anyone look good.  Ask Wideman.

    ...and you would see this top 6 together for all of 2 games. Between Ference & Gonchar we better up the trainer pay.

    Re: B's Defense 2011

    i think they will add a dman . hopefully a r hand shot, that being said much the way boychuck flourished with chara,when there is someone responsible with him, im hopeing to see something like that with hunwick maybe play him with siedenbeg, who is a lefty but has always played the right side and done pretty well, i think they would move the puck! not just back n forth behind the net like ferrence and stuart, hunwick played last season mostly with wideman and his head was so far up his a--ss they both looked bad, so maybe there's hope? or am i all wet?
