For me, highly touted goaltending prospects like Malcolm Subban are a different story. Just as highly touted goaltending prospect Tuukka Rask was (the Leafs traded him and look where it got them). Greater care needs to be shown on this one.
I think it could be moot anyway, I don't think Subban will be required to make this deal happen. I think, like 'bookboy' that the market won't be what Feaster wants or thinks. The Bruins have some leverage here. Pittsburgh is ostensibly out of the running (though some assert they could still make a play for Iginla) and I don't believe the Flames - out of respect for their fans - want to see Iginla back with another Western Conference team this year.
So was Andrew Raycroft & Hannu Toivinen. They gave us what? One great season & fell apart in the Play-offs, the other had a decent season, got injured & then got an alergy to the puck. Justin Pogge, Al Montoya, Brian Finley, Steve Mason...I coud go on & on on this. If anything is shown lately is that a lot of goalie's show promise, but take forever to finally learn how to play consistently in the NHL. Craig Anderson comes to mind to me & YES the B's had him in their grasp for about 11 days.
With this type of thinking, should us Bruins fans expect the same with Koko, Spooner, Camara etc. because of how Hamill, Colborne, etc. turned out ? Or concened with Hamilton because of Aitken, Jonsson, etc. ?
To me it seems silly to compare the prospects of today with failures from the past. They should be judged on what they might bring for the future. Not how others failed.
And if some don't make it then so be it. It happens.
My point is Chowda, is that you can put the arguement both ways. I don't want PC to trade a Spooner, Subban & a Camera for Jarome, but if it needs to be one to help this team win now, so be it! I'm not saying to sell the future for the present. I'm saying to add a piece now & keep some pieces for later. Everything is a gamble no matter which way you go. However, right now in the present starring you right in the face is a team in your conference who's adding pieces with an 11 game winning streak, and nobody from the current roster that won 11 games in row is gone. It's not Feaster's hand that needs to be played here. He already knows his season is finished. He all ready knows he's losing his Captain now, or in July 1. It's PC play if he wants to stay in this poker game. He needs to gamble! And he may have to even take a bluff to stay in this game.
