In Response to Re: The Solution
[QUOTE]We all know what Jacobs thinks of his cash cow I need no explanation on that. Sorry BB you need to do more than that to explain the "hot seat" Chiarelli's job is safe IMO. Jacobs does care about attendance in rating PCs performance then you also have to look at how this Boston is constituted for the next five or six years. When O'Connell and Sinden were sinking the ship they got fired look at the attendance in those last years you've missed the point.

I have missed absolutely no point. Chiarelli was brought here to win a Cup.
Can we at least pretend this is reality? lol
Cam Neely was given a job to promote a symbolic measure to the fans to reinforce this idea. Agree?
The one guy who deserved to win a Cup here, who didn't, outside of Bourque's situation, who did not play in the 1970s, is Cam Neely.
Hence, why his face sits up there with Chia. Keep in mind, Chia cleared out the dead weight in 2006 and had expiring deals, and therefore, he invested the money in players of his choosing.
Keep in mind he DRAFTED Phil Kessel. I question his skills on that alone. If you didn't like his skill set, why did you draft him?
Bascially, Seguin and the 2012 pick will define him, outside of the Cup being a reality here.
Until they actually at least reach a Cup Finals, the question will continue to remain:
"Is this good enough"?
If Chiarelli is not responsible for drafting Kessel, dealing Kessel, drafting Seguin, signing players to the contracts he has, trading for Kaberle after walking around with a raging hard-on, publicly, for him for 3 years, etc.....Just who is?
Maybe Julien is a good coach, but not good enough? Who hired Julien?
What if Julien is let go after this season because of another collapse and the next coach also fails?
When/where does it end?
Fans like you seem to think Chiarelli is on Ken Holland or Lou Lamiorello's level and it's just laughable.
He absolutely has to prove his decisions work.
Bragging about picks when you haven't won squat in 40 years is fruitless.
In the cap era, Danny Ainge masterfully used his chips and made the right move.
Boston has one ring, 3 Conf Finals appearances in 3 years, and probably should have 2 rings, barring a sketchy Game in LA last year in the 4th qtr.
Ainge made the right moves and didn't just say "we have draft picks". Fans don't want to hear the draft pick rhetoric when they have zero to cheer for in 40 years.
The Celtics were going on 25 years, but put a stop to it.
The Bruins? We'll see.
I am pretty sure we've had this conversation before, but it gets really annoying seeing people pretend like Julien and his boss (Chia) aren't responsible as well.
If they don't show well in the playoffs or don't make it to a Conf FInals at the very least, Chia is absolutely on the hotseat heading into next year.
