    Does anyone claim Turco??

    I don't see it happening but does anyone put in a claim to throw a wrench in the B's plans..I don't trust Garth Snow, he'll do it just because he can. He has to clear waivers anyone think a potentail playoff foe we could see putting in a claim?

    Maybe the Leafs, tonight? hehe

    But seriously, the waiver wire goes through teams in order of record. So worst (columbus) goes first. I could actually see them or edmonton pick him up.

    I just can't see a GM in this league being that vindictive. (Well, maybe Sather)

    If no team picks him up, isn't that a message in itself?

    I could see the Nucks pick him up as a reliable back up to Schneider.

    Obviously. Someone would have signed him and he'd playing in the league by now if his talents were sought after.

    He's the best of a bad set of options for backup. No other team in the league is in Boston's position right now (a playoff spot, but no backup goalie heading down the stretch with an aging starter with a history of hip problems) No other NHL team really needs Turco right now.

    I'm not saying any team needs him, just that they know the Bruins do might be reason enough. Just a thought.

    The other teams are too busy giggling at the thought that the B's are reduced to dusting off a has-been like Turco.  If someone takes him, the B's will just keep signing other stiffs until one makes it through.  No worries one way or the other.

    Chris Osgood's got nothing to do, right?

    I'd be willing to bet they contacted Osgood. Perhaps if he were eligible for post season play he would have considered.

    I wasn't "making fun" (believe me, you'd know it if I was). I was simply observing that the waiver system allows any team lower than the Bruins to claim a veteran -- if no team thinks Turco can help them, then how much value do you think he'll have to the Bruins?  Frankly, my comment is pretty mild, compared to some I've read from Bruins fans about this move.

    I wish the B's would go on a 5-game winning streak, 'cause the way they're playing now has you guys in a crabby mood.

    Hopefully Turco makes it through waivers and is in good enough shape to play a few games until Khudobin is well enough to get a few starts before the playoffs.  Thomas appears to need a rest.

    Oh leave 49 alone already. I've said more critical things about the Bruins on a routine basis. Yes, he's an idiot Canucks fan, but he's also a fellow citizen (a neighbour if you will) and he has never been rude on here ( which is more than I can say for half of the Bruins fans on this site). Yes he's a twit, but he's a nice and polite twit. No reason to jump on him. If you want to complain about Canucks fans, come join me and Looch in East Van for a week. 49 is a gentleman in comparison.

    Bishop looked okay last night and Lehner shutout the Bruins. I'm thinking they'll stick with the kids until Anderson gets healthy.

    I know Turco may be a little rusty, but he can fill in fine as backup to give TT a rest. Besides, I cant see him being any worse off than the TT or TR. The B's have been a little shaky and TT's performances arent where we know he can play. Come playoffs, things better come around for the B's or they will be in trouble.

    Chiarelli was on the Sports Hub this morning.  He said that even if Turco gets claimed he would not be able to play for the acquiring team, he can only actually suit up for the Bruins.  Therefore, a claiming team would be claiming him strictly to block the Bruins.  They would have to pay him to sit in the press box.

    Also, Khudobin is due to start skating in the next couple of days.  He was injured a week and a half ago, and it was said it would be 3-4 weeks.  So he's only about 2 weeks from returning.

    That's odd, in the NHL article ( http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=620840#&navid=nhl-search ) he says : 
    "The fact a goalie like that is available after the trade deadline, we're fortunate to a certain degree," Chiarelli said Tuesday before the Bruins played the Maple Leafs. "But there are other teams that need some goaltending help also. I'd say it's 50-50 that he'll clear waivers."
    Weird.  I guess we will find out the answer to the waiver claim in 10 minutes.
