    A look at the top 30 remaining free agents

        http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=568376&cmpid=nhl-rxl-twt

    I do think that some of these player agents have a hard sell to keep them out of the AHL. Since there is already a few Kaberle threads not much to add.

    Madden, Zherdez and Grier not a hard sell IMO. Lagenbrunner, Kovalev and Staios a real hard sell.

    So put yourself in an agents role who would be hard to sell on this list ? Mart Turco ?

    Definately Kovalev, unless you want a prime A FLOATER.

    From a Bruins perspective the list looks like garbage.  The right team might be interested in Madden.  I like Kaberle and Staios even as a 7th D.

    I think most of those guys with the exception of the keepers should be able to find work, but the agents will have to really scour the market to find the right teams. A guy like Hannan, for example, ould never get a job with th Bruins, but could be a fit for someone like the Blues or Avs.

    Wow!  No disrespect intended but slim pickens left on the vine.  As an experienced depth D, my vote would go to Shane O'Brien.  Just wonder what Kaberle is asking having seen the mad numbers given to Wizniewski.

    I have not continued to follow O'B, but he was not good in Tampa...would not even consider for free

    Tom - You're right, bro.  Just a shot in the dark.  He wore out his welcome in Vancouver, too.

    Love him or hate him, we need Kaberle.  If we can get him for 3M or less, it's a good investment.  Make him a PP specialist.

    Re: A look at the top 30 remaining free agents

    I wouldn't mind a flyer on Zherdev for short money. If he and pouliott are fighting for the 12/13th forward spot we have a lot of upside there.  If we got him for last year's contract 1 yr 2 million I think this is a good investment based on risk/reward.  I know some don't want to block the kids, ie. Caron, Sauve et al but to me this is just more competition for them if they are so good that you have 14 NHL guys then you deal with it later.  On a short term I think these boom or bust guys are generaly a good gamble.

    Obviously Chiarelli is willing to wait until the dollar expectations are down quite a bit. IMO we still have a less then solid D with Boychuck, and Kaberle just doesn't play well. Kampfer is a strong possible, but he needs a dependable partner, and these two don't fill the bill.

    Bogie, Did Corvo fit that in at all as the "Dependable Dman" you might have looked for ? or at least have a sigh of relief if Boychuk falters and then Julien inserts Kampfer with Chara with Corvo paired with Ference ?

    even for a couple of years at twice the salary, i still think Langenbrunner would've been a better addition than Pouliot....

    then again, i'm not the architect of the latest Stanley Cup winner....
