There has been a lot of consternation over the last couple of outings and even more talk about "Let's go get _____." So do we as Bruins fans (most of us) trust Chiarelli to make the right move?
Three examples of his trading style (imo) show a definite ability to add by subtracting, a tendency to find the right "smaller piece" but less so a willingness/ability to go get "the big name".
1. Adding by subtracting: Kessel is the prime example, Kobesew for Fallstrom, Weller (to FLA for Seidenberg) and a pick (Koko).
2. The smaller piece: Recchi, Kelly, Seidenberg, (Peverley?)
3. The big name: *wince* Kaberle, Horton for Wideman and a #1(mixed review personally)
So do you trust him? Does he get a good grade as a "trading GM"?
