PC, Said tonight before the face off, "don't expect a top 9 forward deal." what does he play on doing w/9 1st & 2nd round draft picks ovah the next two drafts?
posted at 3/2/2010 8:14 PM EST
Use the picks to move up and/or acquire NHL ready players on draft day. The deadline is tomorrow GM demands go down as the clock ticks towards 3pm.

PC sees the cost too expensive with so many buyers and so few sellers. Look for nothing to happen. They will have to overpay in their eyes in order to make a big deal. So instead we will have to wait until next year to make a serious run at it. There is no way anyone on this board can say we will have a chance in hell with the lack luster offense we now have. I hope he proves me wrong and makes some moves that will help this year and next. Love Whitneys game and he is looking for contract extension for next year and beyond...

I believe he vetoed a deal a few weeks ago because he couldn't get a 3 year extention.

PC is really starting to p#ss me off with his stand pat attitude, grow some stones.

Another wait to next year by the Bs management.
What a joke this team is!
I guess the want 9 picks to mess up!

Chiarelli knows he has overestimated the ability of this team. Until they win a stanley cup he is going to be another one of these average GM's who can't get out of their own way. This is an embarrassing team to watch. People should get their money back.

This guy should be shown the door.Couldn't pull the trigger on the Kessel deal in the summer then lets Burke back him into a corner on that one.Knowing all season long he,s needed a goal scorer.Whats he waitng for the summer after they miss the playoffs.Jeremy won,t be happy with that.

The Bruins could screww up a free lunch. I have ZERO faith in thier drafting ability and even if they do hit on a draft pick (Kessel) I'm sure he will want out of town after 3 years when his rookie deal is up.

Yeah Kovalchuk is paying of huge in New Jersey. He was also invisible in the olympics. He will be invisible in the NHL next season as he signs in the KHL.

yeah PC is really pissing me off now and so is the lack of heart on the ice.

In all the Bruins history, I don`t remember a team so rotten.
They reflects their GM.
Four or five valuable players and nothing after, the void.

Watching the Bruins play is like watching table hockey with no slots for the players to move up and down. This team really needs help now.
They can capitalize on draft if they make smart picks and are willing to wait the 3-5 years for that to bear fruit. Not sure I would trust them to "capitalize" though.
After watching the Olympics, sure wish we had the kind of young talent in LA, Anaheim, St Louis, or Nashville!

If the Bruins do nothing before the trade deadline, then they deserve not to make playoffs. No goal scoring ability...1goal seems to be their quota on most nights. How did Pittsburgh get Poni for someone named Luca Capi, and yet Bruins with all their draft picks could not wrestle him away from Burke? I watched the Bruins/Canadians game tonight and with a 1 goal lead until 3rd period and then allow mONTREAL TO SCORE 4 UNANSWERED goals is disgusting to say the least. This team is going nowhere, and fast.

PC either needs to make a very bold move to help the team now (not just some scrub) or go in the seller direction. If he doesn't shed some of the dead weight salary, they are going to be in the same position next year and probably worse. With Lucic's salary jumping up to 4 million, which is abysmal there really is minimal wiggle room again next year. He has stock piled the draft picks due to the fact that his drafting is a joke, he must figure the more picks he has there is a better chance he'll get a couple right.

So Chia is just going to wait until next June's draft and hope that the players he selects just might possibly make an impact on this team 4 or 5 years from now? Don't the Bruins have 9 picks in the first two rounds? And wouldn't a proven NHL player be better than a draft pick that might not even make the team? Come on PC, man up and improve this team (no one is saying trade TOR's 1st rounder); just make a move to get this team into the playoffs. Because in the playoffs, anything can happen.

Big and Bad....Paille - Savard - Recchi, what a classic top line. I dont know why you even bother keeping Savard if you are going to give him garbage to work with.
posted at 3/2/2010 10:25 PM EST
Recchi has not been that bad this season, relative to the rest of the team. As for Paille...well, he's the Daniel Graham of the NHL (really bad hands).
Paille is easily the worst offensive-minded player on the Bruins right now (including Wideman and Thornton).

It's not that bad of an idea if Chiarelli stands pat and holds on to those picks. Based on what all the scouts are saying, he'll be selecting from a pool like the 2003 draft. And i agree 100%, he should move up and get 3 picks from this draft.
Imagine 3 picks from this pool:

Dang that was a real good draft up and down. Ray Shero inherited allot but he has made some good deadline trades like today.

Yeah totally agree that Recchi has been decent...we just have to realize that its 2010 and he shouldn't be on the top line...I really hope they just keep sobotka on the third line and put Bergeron on Savards wing so at least we can have two decent scoring lines to throw out there.
