In defence of PC....Joe Corvo , Greg Zannon were fill in to add depth for the playoffs.
Mottau was a throw in for the Rolston trade for Yannick R. Again, Rolston a decent fill in for the playoffs.
Turrco again a decent fill in for depleted team making points to get a good run in the playoffs.
Benoit Pouliot was a good pick up for 1 mill/ 1yr. Some Bruin fans wanted the Bruins to resign him. He did a good enough job.
Aaron Johnson, a journeyman defenceman, signed a two contract, knowing that he was going to be playing for both AHL and NHL teams. And as injuries proved, his depth was needed in the last little bit.
Chris Bourque was someone that got traded because that club would take Zach Hamil.
Pandofil, again a pick up because of injury and a more rounded player than Bourque
Torey Krug was an undrafted University pickup. No cost there.
Niklas Svedberg is a great undrafted pickup
Garnet Exelby was a free agent signing for Providence, has played 44 games for the Baby B's.
Kaspars Daugavins sure didn't cost the Bruins anything and if nothing else will be good for the Baby B's
To me. Looking at the trades PC has made, shows he's being very prudent in his moves, not making any big shake up trades and risk destroying any chemistry the Bruins have.
It also shows that the Bruins, all around, have a pretty solid club, where "big trades" for the sake of big trades, haven't being necessary.
Here it is again. Another trade deadline and the Bruins still find them selves about 1 player short of a balanced club. That's with all defencemen going into the playoffs healthy and our goaltenders playing sharp.
All in all, I don't think PC has done that bad of a job. Let's see who he brings in this trade deadline. I'm really hoping it's Martin St.Louis. That guy knows how to put a puck in the net.
