    The last Bruin to score from this spot was Micheal Ryder. There's no one on the team right now (aside from maybe Horty) with the kind of strength, power and touch it takes to beat an NHL goalie from 45ft.

    So what!

    Ninety-five percent of the goals in the NHL are within the area 5 feet of the crease.

    45 foot drifters should never go in, no matter who the shooter. It's called bad goaltending. There's nothing skillful about it.

    In Response to Re: $7,000,000 scoring touch : $7,000,000 scoring touch : Actually closer to $8 (7.8) Seguin's one timer was right into the goalie, not skillfully placed in a corner like Nash did and Stamkos does. You really think a snipe from the slot is as good as a 45 ft drifter from just inside the blue line? Are you alright? I'm glad your not scouting for the Bruins - and if you are, God help us all.

    I'm hoping that Toronto pulls off the Nash trade. They'll rape their system yet again, and add another overpaid player with a long contract. It'll be nice to see them miss the playoffs for another ten years in a row.

    Seguin's shot has been clocked approaching 100 mph. He has power, touch, and boatloads more overall talent than Rick Nash. Marchand has similar touch. There is lots of talent on the Bruins roster that is similar to what Nash brings, and it's all much, much cheaper and doesn't require a lopsided trade to bring in.

    Here is a interesting stat: Even in junior hockey Rick Nash was a minus player. Look it up! Do you need flashing lights and sirens to warn you of the impending danger of having this guy on your hockey club?

    Only 2 players on the '01-'02 team were plus players.  Look it up!

    Does that mean he has never ever been on a good team? I guess so.

    But, he has so much talent. How can that be?

    Do you need the fire trucks and ambulances, too. Danger, danger, danger.

    Seguin has about as much power as he does grit.

    Rask and a 1st is not lopsided for Rick Nash.  Nash plays every night.  What's Rask do most nights? I think the more important question is: why?

    Re: $7,000,000 scoring touch

    Rask and a 1st is not lopsided at all, but I am very doubtful it would get it done. Most people suggest Krejci, which I think is plain foolish. DK is extremely valuable and underrated. Rask and a 1st for Nash is not a bad trade in and of itself. I actually thought it might be a good idea to trade Rask this past off-season.  The problem is I don't think Nash is the Bruins most pressing need.  In the short term they need depth. Their first line is scoring more than a goal a game, while their second is not far behind. That makes their top-6 better than any in the league. Nash might make them a little better, but not much. The players are already really good and play solid all-around games.  They also have good attitudes and good chemistry. There is no way to predict how plopping Nash in there will affect things. There is concern that with one or two injuries, the talent on the third line drops way off.  That should be addressed. Replacing a 30 goal scorer with another 30 goal scorer (that we hope might score 40 or more) is not the most effective way to improve the team.

    Seguin has a powerful shot.  It was clocked at 96 mph.  That is not up for debate.

    In Response to Re: $7,000,000 scoring touch : Ron Francis, Scott Niedermyer, Chris Pronger, Marc Savard? Martin St. Louis, Brett Hall, Adam Oates, Cam Neely, Rick Middleton? Some of them got more ice time, but some of them we're also considered expendable.

    That's quite a list of players. Too bad none of them fit the criteria.

    Sure they do. Players that were moved to a better team with less ice time. Some got more ice time after the move, but they played better after moving to a better team. No?
