    Chris Kelly

    When they made the trade for him Chiarelli referred to him as a "two-way" player. I griped big time because he was not very good offensively and, at the time they needed some O badly. But since the playoffs, I see his real value: He's doing awesome as third line center. His defensive game is top notch and he makes smart plays in all three zones. he may not score all that much but my griping days are over.

    I doubt Chiarelli will ever pursue snipers and dynamic offensive players. He seems content to fill the roster with role players with smarts to complement his core of Thomas, Chara and Bergeron. If it works then why not? As for trading for more output? The team seems to score more when their defensive game is sound. I think even if they acquire a sniper he wouldn't be of much help until they shore up the other two zones. It's just their style of play.

    Chris's defensive skills are undeniable for sure. Kelly is relentless in the Dzone a pure thief, can't gripe becuase his offense has been consistent. Hope it stays that way.

    He would be an ideal 4th line center

    I agree!  You know who else would be an ideal fourth line center?  Patrice Bergeron!  Imagine having such depth that you could have Kelly on the fourth line?

    You know who would be the best fourth line center?  Geno Malkin.  Boy, that would be great!

    I'd trade Kelly, Torres and Shup for Hamill, Ryder and Wideman in a heart beat but I think the opposing GM would laugh at me...Ha

    Can't trade Shupe!  He's a locker room leader.  I know, his points aren't very good.  That's okay!  He has watched many teams win the Cup.  He's a winner!

    You'd be more amusing NAS if you weren't so over the top contrarian. I have a hard time recalling anything you actually like.

    Kelly, by the way, would make an ideal fourth line center. Campbell is good but not as versatile.

    Rask - get off your knees!

    Boychuk - love the hits and the shot.  Dislike the defensive decision making

    McQuaid - Played awful in the regular season, really well in the playoffs, back to awful this season

    Ference - I listed Ference.  Big fan!

    Corvo - Don't know yet

    Kampfer - Don't know yet

    Bartkowski - AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL
    and who else? 
    Oh yah,
    Thornton,

    I think McQuaid has had some tough breaks so far this year.So ,yes ,he has been a little out of sorts ,missing some games hasn't helped but he can play on my team ,anyday. McQuaid is a competitor ,he gives it everything he has .

    You've changed your mind on him ?

    Edit : a couple of words were changed to not ruffle any feathers.

    Back to awful for McQuaid...maybe, but I've seen signs of more game from him than last year.  I get the sense they're trying to stretch him a bit, and maybe he's not yet comfortable or instinctive.  Like Boychuk, he's a feast or famine player.  In both cases, you learn to live with the famine if you think the feast is worth it.  As long as the team can survive their mental lapses or bad passes, I can live with these two.

    McQuaid is a #6 defenceman. His play is fine for his skill level and that depth spot on the team.
