    Trade Kelly?

    would anyone else be completely open to moving Kelly?, may sound out of left field but If we moved Kelly not only would it open 2 million dollars off the cap, it would also allow Seguin to move to center and Caron a regular shift on right wing

    Lucic    Krejci    Horton
    Marchand   Bergeron    Peverly
    Puoliot   Seguin    Caron


    and we could Sign Clark who i love to be that 13th forward

    thoughts?

    Kelly is good and we have lots of cap space, i don't know why we would trade him.  If Seguin is the better option at center 3rd line, Kelly doen't need to be traded to make that happen.

    Why?  No need to do it--- he is a solid team player and a contributor in a bunch of situations--- that is valuable to this team.

    From what i've seen Kelly is a solid 2 way player who is very good value for money. I would not trade him at this point.

    Re: Trade Kelly?

    You could trade him but then at the deadline we would be looking for a 3rd line center who can kill pk, score some timely goals and have playoff experience.  Oh wait we have a guy like that.  Sometimes those types of players are more important to team success then the big moves.  Mainly b/c they fit in and know their role.  Kaberle has no clue.

    No . Kelly is an integral part of this Bruins team, and can play n3rd or 4th line regularly, and fill in on one and two. He has speed, size, experience. No reason at all to move him.

    Susceptible for trade, yes but because he can play that grinder playoff game with his salary he stays or Arniel and Sauve would not have been sent down if Claude thought either had out played Chris.

    Kelly's offensive game frustrates allot but his defensive abilities as a center are complete and that's all she wrote in Julien's mind. Better than watching Whitfield...

    Think the only way Kelly is traded is if half the team goes down with injury and the Bs go into rebuild mode. Kelly is too valuable to a team making the push for the playoffs.

    Chris Kelly? Defensively responsible, valuable on the PK and chips in enough goals for 2 mil a year. He will help you gut out a big 2-1 win in May or June. Keep him.

    He's too much of a utility payer to be traded. It's guys like Kelly that make the Bruins a cup threat again this year. Depth, depth and more depth.

    Re: Trade Kelly?

    I would consider it but not now, I also think there is a log jam between the 3rd and 4th lines, but an injury could occur as soon as he is dealt then we scramble to find someone like him, let it play out, we have enough cap space, and at the deadline we can move him or package him, picks etc to get what we might need, who knows maybe he scores 20-25 goals, and we can Pouliot

    Saw Seguin play in person the other night. Sick talent. Put the kid in the middle of the ice and let him grow. I like Kelly a lot, and think he's an important piece - But IMO Seguin's development is the priority.

    Not to sound obtuse; but isn't winning the priority? You don't trade a versitile Kelly, just so somebody can develope.

    Kelly's better than Clark, so I wouldn't want to trade him to make room for Clark. Kelly's a great character player who gets some goals and is real fast. Boston needs speed against Montreal, Vancouver, Tampa, etc.

    I really believe developing Seguin at Center does give the best chance of winning. And I really wouldn't describe Tyler Seguin as just somebody.

    Re: Trade Kelly?

    If Seguin needs to play Center, Kelly can play left wing.  Caron can play either wing, I think the same with Pouliot.  I expect you will see some fluidity there as the year begins, not unlike Kelly and Peverley last year.

    Indeed.  Trade Kelly for a player who's earned a ring, has worn the "A" with another team, and can fill multiple roles on a talented team.  Absolutely.  Trade Chris Kelly straight up for Chris Kelly.  Wow.

    I agree with this. Kelly and Peverley have been wonderful for this team. Can never have too many guys who play solid 2 way games with speed, leadership and grit.

    For 2mil and under that is.

    Clearly you haven't seen Pouliot in a B's jersey.

    I'm not convinced that you've seen Kelly in a B's jersey.

    Claude Julien loves players like Chris Kelly. Solid two way player, defensively solid first and foremost and chips in with goals now and again. He's also versatile, a leader, plays with grit and above all else... plays great against the Habs. I don't see him going anywhere.

    Why do they have to trade Kelly in order for Seguin to play center?

    In all fairness, you also felt last year's handling of Seguin by CJ was detrimental to the organization............just sayin'.

    Good point nite - I agree

    I'm not bashing Kelly, or do I think he deserves to be traded. I just think that Seguin could become an elite player. I'd like to see him go through his growing pains playing at center, and regular first line PP duties. It was the first time I watched him in person, and I was just 3 rows back. His talent looked pretty devastating to me. I just would like to see what that ability can do playing where he belongs. My comments were more in support of that, than any disrespect to Kelly. I like his game, for his price. He helped bring the cup to Boston - I get it
