    I have a few issues with this. First, mueller. *rolls up newspaper* no! No! 2. Kane, not a pipe dream but it's not happening. 3. Can't trade both Kelly and Campbell. Who's going to center PK units? Need one of them. 4. Mdz, he's not good. 5. What happened to Adam mcquaid?

      While I like the addition of Kane, that lineup is softer than I was after I watched the entire box set of "Cagney and Lacey" that I got for Christmas a few years back.

       I don't think we need to add much more than some physical players on the bottom two lines. Vrbata would have been nice, but hopefully Lois Erikkson can pick up the offense.

    I'm going with that area along the West Bank in Lebanon not the area near Cambodia in the 70s. Adrian Cronauer would have the answer.

    Or maybe that was the original chorus in AC/DCs "TNT" ?

    Over McQuaid ?

    oh hell no!

    Unless PC gets overwhelmed by an offer for Boychuk the defense stays.

    Kelly out and a right-handed shot in are the only moves I see happening.

    I like his game. I think he would make a smooth transition to the NHL. I didn't see him too much in providence, but I liked what I saw in junior. Great compete level, great hockey iq

    I would love to see Griffith make the Bruins at some point. But I don't see him leap frogging Fraser, KoKo or Spooner. I think Seth needs another year in the AHL. I think Grifftth has a real good year in Providence this season.

    Re: And Your Starting Lineup for '14-'15 is?

    Alright, I'll play.

    Assuming they move Kelly for nothing but picks or prospects who are not part of the story right away -

    Lucic Krejci Eriksson                       The Switch     Lucic  Krejci Eriksson

    Marchand Bergeron Smith                                   Soderberg Bergeron Smith  (second PP unit rides again)

    Paille Soderberg Fraser                                       Marchand Spooner Paille   (bump up the offensive potential)

    Campbell Spooner Florek.                                    Florek  Campbell Fraser 

    Griffith

    Chara Seidenberg

    Hamilton Boychuck

    Krug McQuaid

    Miller

    Rask

    Svedberg

     

    I retained no salary for Kelly and put Savard on LTIR.  I gave Krug $1.75M and Smith $1.5M, and Fraser and Florek got $900K.  The CapGeek calculator would have let me give them in the $600s, but I believe we discussed whether or not you could qualify at a lower amount than their contract NHL salary if they didn't earn that amount.  So - this is what you get.  The whole shebang leaves about $1.7M in flexibility, and they could drop Griffith to the minors to increase that if they wanted. 

    The strength is the D, obviously.  I think they can get enough goals out of the regular formation to win enough games to be a top 3 seed in the division and top 6 in the East.  Honestly, I think that's a very conservative prediction.  I think the top line is good for 70 goals, the second line for 70 goals, the third line for 40 and the fourth for 20.  The D will get about 40 with Krug, Hamilton and Chara.  That gives you 240 or sixth in the league.  I might be high (...on my predictions...) but even if I am, I think the Bruins finish top 5 in defensive stats again, Rask contends for the Vezina again, and they see the return on investment in the ice time Hamilton and Krug played last year. 

    PS.  I gave serious consideration to trading Campbell.  For what, I dunno, but the thought of adding a bigger, stronger banger in that spot appeals to me.  Perhaps that's what they can get for Bartkowski - a guy with some size who can play 4th line LW with a bit of skiil and a lot of "truculence" and create space for Spooner to try to Marchand his way up the lineup.

    Are you not entertained?!?!

    Yah I would consider moving Campbell. Soup is a CJ fav though. When you have that going for you, a player can be "Caronded" for years.
