    180 million dollar payroll is "cheaping out the fans" because he's not adding to it?

    I wonder what it would take to pry Ryan Ellis from Nashville? He would be a nice depth Dman that can play some minutes and maybe help the PP.

    Just a thought.

    With the prospect of losing Suter and maybe Weber, i don't think Nashville will be too keen to trade any of their young d-men.Unless there is a d-man going the other way i guess.

    The only players that are possible trades:

    For deadline deals to get ( PC he said will not make any subtraction to harm the team):
    Horton has 50/50 shot to be traded if it involves a big name but is part of the 1st line but at the moment is having concussion problems. Did show in last yrs. play offs until his injury.

    Corvo or Boychuk not both could be going if the Bruins are seeking a top d man for rental in a package deal

    In the off season possible trade bait:

    If Rask can step up this year then a slight possibility Thomas can be traded next season cause of his UFA season could be a good deadline deal if Rask is sign.

    Krejci can get us some nice returns Seguin is looking like the next center but is playing wing on Bergerons' line at the moment. Seguin could be the center with Lucic or RW  with Krejci and Looch come next year.

    Marchand and Bergy could be training another prospect on the RW come next season.

    Most important our first goal is too sign Rask is already showing he is a Bruin and will not get any worst. He still will need to mature hockey sense and emotions.

    If we don't sign Kelly then we will lose out on a third line center, if we sign him then Peverly could be the 2nd line RW next season.

    In conclusion the bruins mngt. will be looking for a good solid d man for low value cause their main signing in the off season will be Kelly and rask. If the mngt. need to shed salary then we may see Krejci or Horton traded in the summer.

    The Bruins come playoff time will need to improve the blueline and PP before deadline. I personally have 100% faith in our forwards but 50% faith with the current d men boychuk and corvo. Once ference is back then PC will pull the trigger for a d man.

    Then asked yourself this can Seguin be as good as Krejci centering the 1st line come next year. If you think yes then Krejci can be traded in the summer.

    Other possible signings in the summer if the price is right are Paille, Campbell and Poulit will be good idea to keep the Bruins roster intact.

    I think PC will surprise us this year like he did last year with the separate deals that through us all for a loop. Now if Chiarelli also did a Horton type deal I would also not be shocked as he has the cap space to do it. What's nice is PCs humour and transparency in telling the fans and Lebrun that he will indeed improve our Bs so I have faith.

    SanDog, you've nailed it. Whatever moves Chiarelli makes, they will be of the "didn't see this coming" variety. And their true worth might not be clear right away, as was the case with Kelly and Peverley.

    Though, if I were you guys, I might also be somewhat concerned regarding PC's evaluation of available D-men out there.  Having read many posts here on the subject, it seems that the Kaberle deal was an expensive rental (yes, he was on the Cup winning team, I realize that); and there seems to be a reasonable consensus that Corvo is not the answer.  After watching the WJ's, Dougie seems like the real deal, and there's every chance he could be the B's Alpha D-man of the future.  As we know, though, junior D-men take longer to develop than forwards (as a general rule), so his arrival on the big team may not be until late next season as a playoff call-up from Providence.

    Chara, Seidenberg, and Ference tell me that Chiarelli is pretty good at evaluating defensemen.

    How's Andrew Alberts treating you?  LOL

    "Toughness and depth with expiring contracts that look good are Gill, Aucoin or Staois on D and Koivu, Prospal and Stepniak as a depth forward wouldn't cost Chiarelli for that depth he's looking for."

    Plenty of expiring contracts out there without mortgaging allot. Then again Chiarelli could do what what he's done in the last 3 years commit complete robbery of another GM with a bigger deal and still keep his core players. The question for me is how he pulls back a current 2nd rounder he doesn't have unless he's made a decision to trade his 1st rounder for a couple of 2nd rounders.

    I wouldnt mind seeing Hal Gill in a Bruins uniform come playoff time, I think thoughts of Suter,Parise etc..are wishful thinking, especially with expiring contracts of core players ore on the horizon. I see a nice steady rent a player coming aboard this deadline, and I'm fine with that.

    Isn't winning a Cup with Kaberle all of the support needed for the argument? He gave up a guy who still can't crack the Leafs lineup along with pick #30 and another pick that currently sits at #57.

    [QUOTE]I'd send considerable futures to get Doan. Send corvo back to CAR with a 2nd for Gleason. Do something else to add a true #7 like Hnidy last year for padding before you have to call up Kampfer. It would be the most dangerous 4 lines in the league. Lucic-Krejci-Horton Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin Peverley-Kelley-Doan Pouliot-Campbell-Paille (Thornton) Chara-Gleason Seids-Boychuck Ference-McQuaid (Back up) Repeat boom. Doan walks after this year.

    I'm simply arriving at a conclusion based on a lot of discussion by you and your colleagues here, that hasn't necessarily been all that complimentary about Kaberle.  Look at the evidence: PC could have re-signed him for this season -- there was/is plenty of cap space, but didn't.

    I just think he plays too passively and inconsistently for my taste. He's certainly a good option, and I wouldn't replace him with just anyone given his comfort level with Krejci and Lucic, but I'm still holding out baby-jesus hope that we could swing Zach Parise.

    Posted by LUCICmilan17[/QUOTE]

    Not sure what you define as soft.  He is a prime time...actually  Prime Time shut down dman who owned Sid/Ovie a few yrs back.  Adding him to this lineup means Chara doesnt have to match up with those guys as much.  When a team comes with 2 dominant lines you cant play Chara all game.  Gill eliminates one, blocks shots like crazy, hits and kills PIMS.  He likely can be had for 10 pizzas and a case of beer(friend of mine in junior was traded for that so its not original).
    This soft thing doesnt sit with me.  Kaberle is soft.  Gill is far from it.  You don't have to drop the mits every night to be a tough guy and he is very durable for the role he plays.

    Hal Gill has been around for quite a while. He is a native son, and his play in Montreal has been better than any prior year in Boston which only indicates that it takes longer for defensemen to mature.Ok for a one year fill in.

    I agree we'll see a Kelly extension before any trades are made.  I'm sure they would like to get a Rask deal done too but I'm not so sure Tukka is an a hurry.  I still don't think Thomas will be traded when his no-trade clause expires this summer.  Unless a contender feels they are a goalie away from a Cup run (Philly, Washington, Chicago) don't expect a team to give up too much for a 38 year old goalie in the final year of his contact.  Don't get me wrong either, TT is my favorite NHL player and I believe he's the best goaltender in the NHL.  I just don't see a big trade market for him given his age and possibilty he could retire when his contract expires.
