[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Neely and Chiarelli Accountability to the Fans! : tell me the last time that a major block buster trade led to a team winning a cup.....might take a while to look back that far. so drafting and developing doesn't work. Well, isn't that what chicago did? with keith, kane, and toews. isn't that what pittsburgh did? wait isn't that pretty much what detroit did? and the ducks, and carolina? do i need to keep going. in the salary cap era the ONLY way to have a consistent contending team is to draft, and develop, and not make huge trades. make trades for complimentary parts. Ask pittsburgh, they'll tell you that the Hossa deal was a mistake

Hossa was a mistake for Pittsburg, as was Gonchar for the Bruins years ago when Big Joe was at the helm. Boston has been 'rebuilding' since they traded Thornton, how many years ago? What I'm saying is ...let's go for it now.
Building for the future is what Florida, Edmonton, Ottawa are doing becasue they don't have a chance in hell to win the cup let alone make the playoffs.
If you and your other firends on this site don't beleive the Bruins can win the cup this year I'll understand why you're so agaisnt Chiarelli trading TO's first round pick for a proven young stud at the blueline...otherwise you're all out of your minds . We'll be forever building a contender but never good enough to win the cup. IS THAT WHAT YOU ALL WANT ! WAKE UP !
I've been a Bruins fan ALL my life. Celebrated the last 2 cups . We're close !
Closer than we've ever been since the early 70's. You all know this Bruin's squad would be the favored to win the cup if we still had Bourque right?
Well, I'm suggesting Chiarelli trade draft picks and potential prospects for an offensive Dman that will help this team for years to come. Bogosian, Brewer
and I'd even try for Shea Weber or Yadl because I know with any one of these guys our chances will be ecellent and the rest of the team will be re-energized.
Now do you get ! I know Cam gets it and Chiarelli is too conservative to get it, but I'm hopeful he come around.
