In Response to Re: LUCIC SALARY BUMPS TO 4 MIL NEXT YR....KESSEL? : Good and sensible posts are getting drowned out by all these people who know nothing about what's going on claiming that PC should have gotten a scorer. Face it people, the only one out there worth anything was Torres. And sorry, that's pretty lame. To think he's going to become a 30+ scorer because he was playing with Savard is just wishful thinking. Screamers and hysterical posts rule the day. PC worst gm in NHL and so on. I've posted before, go look at the worst contracts in the NHL - and there are plenty - the Bruins aren't there. How would you like Briere, Redden or Campbell you idiots? And Kessel for 5.5 mil? If he were a Bruin right now, 90% of you would want his head.

Okay, so we've justified that:
a) from an objective standpoint, the Bruins need more help than they could have acquired at the deadline.
b) (this is fact): unless the B's move some money (I dont see how), they are NOT going to be able to get help this upcoming offseason.
c) (a combination of a and b): we are probably not cup contenders this year or next
d) Because of point "C" the best bet is probably to build for the future
This being the case, how do you justify NOT shopping Chara (UFA after 2011), Lucic (UFA after 2011), Thomas (the Caps WOULD have been interested), Wheeler (UFA after this year, not going to stay), Recchi (love the guy but he has more value on a cup contender), Sturm (use the lack of talent up for grabs to try to convince a team that taking this bad contract is better than giving up a second for equal talent)...
The worst part? It was clearly a seller's market.
PC screwed up badly. Its really not about a lack of hockey knowledge either. Its more so because he really doesnt understand economics
