    Goodbye to Horton?

    I know this discussion can be had in the off season but with the way he is playing in these playoffs and his clutch play it will be sad to see him go.We can all agree that during the regular season he does go awol at times but when the spotlight shines brightest he brings his A game in spades.On top of that he is well liked by his teammates and is there for them when needed. His previous 2 concussions have to be taken into account and it did have an effect on his play when he came back but he sure seems over it now.

    With free agency coming up and with his playoff performances to back him up i think he is in line for a big payday,someone will pay him, and i don't blame him for going for the money as you only have so many chances to cash in. The B's might want to keep him but i don't think he will give a home town discount, unless i'm wrong again.:-)

    Plus he will have 2 Stanley Cups on his resume.

    He's likely gone to highest bidder

    Have to agree, can't blame him.

    there's always the hope he will take a hometown discount... I did rather than work in NYC and make a lot more!

    There are ways that the B's can retain him. I'm not sure why you think that he is gone after this season.

    Other than the proverbial hometown discount, tell me how?

    The Bruins cannot continue to keep everyone and give them raises.  At some point, guys have to go or the lower levels will suffer.  Chiarelli's drafts haven't produced jack outside of Seguin and Hamilton, so they're going to have to go shopping for a second line player at a lower price and move either Marchand or Seguin up to play with Lucic and Krejci.

    You've never played around on Capgeek, have you?

    And how much do you think he is going to make? I have him signing for around $5-$5.5 mil.

    With how much allocated to Rask and Rask's backup?

    $5.5-$6 mil going to Rask and either resign Khudobin for about $900,000-$1 mil or bring up Svedberg for $1 mil.

    The cap is $64M.  The B's have $58M on the books.

    Horton at $5M and Rask at $6M doesn't fit.

    Help me understand your math.

    1. Take Savard's money off the books. That saves slightly more than $4 mil.

    2. Trade (or buyout) one of Peverley or Kelly (or both, but I don't think the B's would do that). That saves about $3 mil.

    Wella. About $13 mil right there. There are some other smaller rearrangements that can be made to accomodate the money, but that is essentially it.

    Re: Goodbye to Horton?

    Last thing I want to think about right now....is who's gonna go in the offseason.  I can't think of anything more negative, or wasteful.  It's been decades, since we've had the horsepower of the last few years. 

    Drink it up.

    This is no time to dither over next years "maybe's".

    I can't imagine them buying out either of those two, and if they are traded, there are going to be holes (or at least a hole) that needs to be filled.  I don't see that happening, but I guess we'll find out.

    It's my guess that Horton walks.  And best of luck to him.  He's been awesome in the playoffs and has worn the Bruins jersey proudly.

    I don't see it as negative.  I also welcome the distraction from talking about the damn Penguins.  We've been dissecting them and the series for a week!

    It's a scenario that allows the B's to keep him. I was pointing out that scenario because people seem to believe that it is impossible for the B's to retain him for whatever reason.

    However, the B's could very well opt to let him go. That is another scenario. I just don't want to hear that they can't keep him because they can if they wanted to.

    I don't see him being re-signed. Rask is going to get a huge payday and I don't see them buying out either Kelly or Peverly.

    If the B's were to let Horton go, who does everyone think the B's would sign (or trade for) to replace him?

    There are plenty of ways to keep him.  They could trade Lucic for a 4th round pick.  They could let Rask walk instead.  They could package Bergeron and Seguin to Florida for the 2nd pick overall.  It isn't realistic, however.

    I think they'd move a second line winger up and sign a cheaper option for that line.

    The last thing we need is a discount first liner.  Byron Bitz comes to mind.

    Maybe Michael Ryder if they can get him at a reasonable price but that is a big if. He fit the system well here. But PC let him go because Seguin was ready to take the next step.

    That's why I offered a realistic scenario.

    I believe Seguin replaces him and a guy like Spooner or Knight takes Tyler's spot.

    He's not from here and doesnt live here. So that doesnt apply. I can't see realistically how he stays here, unless PC gets real creative.

    I can't think of anything more negative and wasteful then someone telling other people what they shouldn't be talking about.
