Is any of this reality?
Now that the first 24 hours of NHL free agency have come and gone, the Bruins will look into some of the bargain options out there to either A) come up with a potential replacement on the right side for Iginla on the top line or B) sign a worthy third line candidate that could bump Loui Eriksson up to the right wing spot on the No. 1 line for the Black and Gold.
Radim Vrbata has been mentioned as a possibility, and has averaged 22 goals per season over the last five years while never being afraid to shoot the puck. Peter Mueller could be an intriguing name as a 26-year-old, former 20-goal scorer that spent last season in Switzerland, and appears to be over the concussion problems that nearly derailed his career in Colorado.
Lee Stempniak is another intriguing second-tier wing option that's been a consistent double-digit goal scorer in the NHL, wouldn't cost much and could be the kind of third line, right-shot option that would also push Eriksson up to the top line.
What for real can be done? Without moving anyone can they really bring on another body or we just looking at them working with what they have?
