    WANTED SCORER

    I have to say that was an entertaining game. I loved the passing and the drop offs and the movement of the puck. It reminded me of a Premier Soccer game but the component missing that every great Premier Soccer team has as is an elite sniper. We need one NOW. There is no more time to wait. Let's not fault the guys that we have they play like a team and give it their all but we need someone greedy selfish and accurate and does not take more than a geritol pill to load up a shot. I have to say Seguin is the best guy out there beyond TT and the defense. He is really dazzling and has exceeded my expectations. Kelly has suprised me entirely with good linemates. Everyone is doing there job but there is still no scoring. I don't think there can be any more patience a trade needs to happen PC quick for a sniper. Just one. In every other way we are so well balanced. Puoliout did not have a great game and the fourth line beside defense responsibility has not been stellar but every game has been a loss by one goal. So in my mind we are one goal away from winning and a pure sniper will solve that quick. Get one now.

    Yep, imagine how bad the Bs would be right now without Seguin.
    And at Horton's present rate he'd be lucky to pot 20 goals this year.

    Re: WANTED SCORER

    My question is always the same. Which "sniper " is available? What will it cost the Bs to get him? And what guarantee is there he will lead us to the cup? 8 teams with a 30+ goal scorer ( in some cases 2) failed to make the playoffs last year. 12 teams did not have a 30+ goal scorer and 6 of those teams did make the playoffs. A "sniper" is not the only answer.

    Agreed Ward must go. Scoring and PP has to be the must for the Bruins NOW.

    Re: WANTED SCORER

    They need a brute at center. Arnott comes to mind. If we still had Colborne who is TEARING UP the AHL this year (7 games, 7g-8a-15 points) we could bring him into the mix but Chiarelli brilliantly traded him a way for that bag of pucks. We don't even have anyone in the AHL who can score! Only hope in the system are Coco, Florek, and Spooner, still a couple of years away. Brilliant drafting job on the rest, including Hamill and Caron. Thank God we won our cup last year (thanks mainly to nearly immortal goaltending. No other way we could have).

    Please explain why this is a need? The Bruins won last year without it. The Hawks won the year before without a center taller than 6'1. Regarding your man-crush on Colborne, there isn't a team in the league more in need of a #1 center than the Leafs and Colborne can't even crack their lineup yet you want us to believe that Colborne could've been a difference maker for the Stanley Cup champs.

    Ah, excuse me, but the Leafs need nothing at this point. Check their record. Playoffs here they come. They fleeced us to get Colborne, and as I said to you last year, the Bruins will regret that move. They would have won the cup without the bag of pucks they traded Colborne for. Big guys take longer to develop. Colborne stands 6 feet six. He'll be an NHL regular real soon. A minor move that may help is to get Boyle from the Rangers. Might come fairly cheap, let's say Peverley and Coco, and would certainly change the dynamic of the team.

    Agree scorer needed, Chiarelli should target Chris Stewart from St Louis, 2.8 mill, last year in contract, big power forward type, and avg 28 goals the last two years, if he lights it up you resign him if not let him walk, dangle Krecji, and then move Seguin back to center, Seguin, Bergeron, Kelly, Campbell is 4 strong centers,

    You seriously are now on record as saying the Leafs need nothing and are playoff bound? Laughable. Just another one of your posts to bookmark for future laughs. I'm getting quite a collection. And once again, regarding winning the Cup without Kaberle, it's impossible for you to prove. What we KNOW, is they did win with Kaberle and are now losing games without him. You can't have it both ways. If the Bruins are so much better without Kaberle, where are the wins? Oh yeah, it's because Ryder and Rex are gone right? What evidence do you have that big guys take longer to develop? If anything, big guys make it earlier because their size can often make up for other shortcomings. I can name all kinds of big guys that made it as teenagers and never looked back(Lemieux,Thornton,Primeau,Lindros,the Staals,Getzlaf,etc.). Who are these big guys you speak of that blossomed after a few years of seasoning in the minors?

    For what it's worth

    Trade rumors really starting to swirl around Bruins and if @Real_ESPNLeBrun is correct that the Bruins are looking for a forward, I say keep an eye on Johnny Boychuk as odd man out

    Re: WANTED SCORER

    The Bs success last year was helped by the fact that their scoring was so well spread. Stands to reason that the problems stem from the fact that almost no one is scoring at all.

    Dezaruchi's  lack of knowledge once again on display. Thornton's first year he had about 3 goals and 5 assists. Dez also continues his mancrush on possibly the worst defenseman for the money in the entire league, his idol, Kaberle

    Re: WANTED SCORER

    Hey lets not get carried away I no way implied or said we need a center. I said we need a pure siper. A Wayne Rooney type would be nice. Yes he plays soccer not hockey but he is the equivalent to the Arnott type players. I would take a Torres or cheeky bastord who was a garbage specialist. I just want a proven and selfish and tenacious and veteran goal scoring machine out there on wing, defense , or center. I DO NOT CARE. Again we are one goal away from turning this thing around. I have not thrown out the baby with the bath water. Yes I am older than you for saying that. I simply think we need a pure goal scorer. A specialist. I have no idea who is available and their need in skill types. I leave that up to the experts. Like Dez, Shupe, Newfie, and the rest. You can be a hater but you cannot deny there is an element that is missing and it is not going to be learned. I have played and coached sport too long not to see the writing on the wall. You do not have it in P Bruins either so forget that play. You need to find it outside and soon. I do not want to see anyone go but it may need to happen. Shake it up now or be sorry later. I believe in everyone of our players I love the way they are playing. I am not offering anyone to hockey puck you know what. But you can not be so loyal like the Red Sox after championships that you turn the team into the monster it has become with over paid, chicken eating. beer drinking, self entitled losers. That is the key. Self entitled. Our guys one the cup very young. That is a hard thing to shake and ONE not two ONE trade will shake the whole builining and the players to the CORE> DO it PC. I don't want to watch when it happens becuase it may be the players I love love love. But do it. Get it over with.

    They need to FIRE Julien, he is a terrible coach, we won last year because we got a pu$y team in the Cunucks.  He is to D minded, his "system" is a joke, they play with the puck behind the blue line to much and allows the other D to set up to often and allow their forwards to change resulting in hardly any transition game. 
    They should put Seguin with Bergy and Marchaund and unleash them. Speed has and will always kill.  Lucic is not fast enough through out the game to keep up and Kelly is to D mined.  We need a line that can score and that line would.

    Re: WANTED SCORER

    More line changes are not going to help and it is not Claude's system. I respectfully disagree Wildwillie. I appreciate the thought in it. Yes I think Vancouver may be a softer team but at the end of the day I can not concur. CJ has won with too many teams and there are too many sports franchises in all sports that have won with good defense minded teams including the Devils for years. It is not pretty hockey to most. It may not flow like you are used to seeing but it is effective.

    How many games did Thornton play in the minors? Nice try. How about answering my question instead of attempting to question my knowledge with no facts to back up your argument. What bothers you more, the fact the Bruins won with Kaberle after you threw them under the bus 2 games into the playoffs or the point that you can't back up your statements with anything resembling fact? I can see where you'd find both to be quite troubling.

    Re: WANTED SCORER

    I gotta agree with Dez here.  For the 1000th time the Bruins problem in not with talent, it is with execution and perhaps motivation.  Somehow all of the emos and reactionaries here have forgotten that this roster is exactly 9 games removed from a Stanley Cup (where they scored a ton of goals) and they should be better this year (Seguin, Marchand).

    Complain all you want, but at least complain about the right things (eg. Krejci, Horton, Lucic, Corvo, etc. grossly underachieving so far).

    Flecth you know I think you are one of the best posters and have hockey smarts. Yes we have all the talent in the world. But sometimes a small part of it is not mixing right. Yes we are nine games out but we are slowly digging that ditch to under >500 for a time to come. Yes we are underachieving with talented players but that is the problem so of the reclamation projects render like Horton. I am telling you one trade for a pure SNIPER. I am being specific here on that point only. I do not care if he plays as a GOON and scores  100 goals. It sends a clear message to all the guys not moving their FEET as well. I am not asking for whole sale change. ONE TRADE for a SNIPER> no more no less.

    Joe Colborne has done NOTHING yet. He's TEARING UP the AHL. He looked quite OVERWHELMED in the NHL preseason, hence back to the AHL. The closest Joe Colborne will get to being a BRUTE is if he orders one from Boston pizza. The B's are Cup champs with Kaberle on their roster, Colborne is in the AHL and the B's still have the bag of pucks.

    Well, a great sniper always helps, but who is available?  And at what price?

    Trading for a sniper in October/November is almost a guarantee to overpay.

    I would ride it out first (while I agree that Horton and Krejci in particular have shown very little so far).
