    Re: What will Chiarelli do?

    My bet is on the safe move over the blockbuster... so I will say Stuart.

     

    but a bigger deal still possible just maybe not the names mentioned above (maybe Volchenkov.)

    i don't get why anyone wants stuart. it does literally nothing unless there are two more injuries on the blue line.

    Re: What will Chiarelli do?

    A player like Volchenkov (A shutdown LHD with 0 offense - 2 years left @ 4.250\y) would cost the bruins a D like Boychuk plus. That opens the list up to many others that would be more palatable than Volchenkov. We would only make a trade like that for the right player which will not be available. So we look at UFA’s that may be. A player like Stuart can be had without touching our roster and would only be depth. He would not even see ice time unless injury comes playoff time. We need players like that as well.  We have the chips and cap space to add a top 9 winger, Top 3 D and a depth D if we can swing it. But players have to be available for it to happen.  Signed players are mostly off limits unless your willing to pay a ransom and not even then...

    Why would it cost the B's Boychuk ?

    And what would stop the Devils (as a team currently on the outside of the playoffs looking in ) to ask for younger, cheaper picks and prospects if they wanted to unload Volchenkov ?

    That opens the list up to many others that would be more palatable than Volchenkov. We would only make a trade like that for the right player which will not be available.

    More palatable ?

    Volchnekov fits the Seidenberg mold as a tough, hard hitting, mind your own end type of defenceman. 

    Bringing along a contract that still has term to it with his style of game would be "palatable" for me. I like him.

    Fantasy trade accepted...........providing Boychuk stays put.

    Devils are gonna be in rebuild mode in short order.  Volchenkov when healthy would be ideal.  But there is no way i trade a better player(Boychuk) for him.  I think we will get an idea on what players will cost soon enough.

    Pffft. Volchenkov. He wasn't even on the Russian Olympic squad. Wait, maybe that's a good thing. :p

    If we bring in a player with term beyond this year we have to move salary.

    Right now NJ is only 3pts away from a playoff spot. If they did move a D it would be Marek and I do not see that happening for the very same reason that they are still in the hunt.  Even if they lose til Mar 5th. The price would be very high to pry a player they have no intention of moving.

    As far as the Palatable comment I guess that was too strong of a word there. I only mean it would open up other alternative players to consider if we made a bold move like that. Volchnekov is a bit injury prone player that I would not want to risk high value for.

    Hey Stanley, What is the real deal that Chiarelli can do. Adding Stuart is a posibility. Not what we really need but what real deal is out there for Chia to do, who comes and who goes. I think the deal you are looking for is an off season deal but this thread is not about that. What will Chiarelli do?

    Their best perfromers are old and on one year contracts. They signed them to sell them. They are in rebuild mode. Jagr, Ryder, Volchencov are all players they will try to move.

     

    Boychuk is a player that A. the devils wouldn't ask for because they wouldn't want him. and B. would be a HUGE overpayment. and no. salary doesn't have to go the other way to make this work at all. They would be making the trade for this year, and then re-evaluating after. It's done all the time.

    They are only 3 pts out but have to leap frog 5 teamsi think lou is pretty crafty and realizes he doesnt have what it takes to make the playoffs(Or he will by the end of the weekend).  I think he will deal off all valuable pieces.  Jagr will be going somewhere as will marty.

    I'm scouting Tallinder Wednesday but i'm going to need BadHabs advice watching his skating. PC does have his love affair with ol Ottawa personel.

    I think ATrain stays put becuase Lou Lam has to somehow get the Devils into the playoffs. Not that there fans actually will show up for the games.

    Re: What will Chiarelli do?

    I have never known Lou Lamoriello Pres\GM to rebuild. A 5 team jump with a 3 pt spread is still very doable at this stage of the season. They don’t need Marty anymore. If the deal is mutual he will most likely go. Maybe jagr maybe not. Lou doesn’t give up he is still in it. NJ and BB are not a good trade matchup. Detroit is very vulnerable right now.

    As far as Ottawa goes they are very much going for it don’t see Philips coming our way.

    Deep where?  I love our 1st 2 lines.  After that well not so much.  On the backend we may be deep in young players but when you take seidz and af out of the lineup we are starving for a stud back there.  

    PC will do what he thinks it will take to win the cup.  Kaberle was an overpay as was jagr. He went all in on morrow and iggy.   PC has stated he wants to find a guy that is a minute eater and plays solid defense.   

    I think our top 2 lines are better then ladt year.  I think our bottom 2 lines are no better.  I think our defense is much worse.   I would like a 3rd line fwd and a top 4 dman.   I trust boychuk chara and krug on our backend.  I would put McQ in there but hes too injury prone and is a 5-6.   No trust in hamilton yet.  I think bart will be dealt.  The bottom line is who do you play in place of the large minutes that AF and Seidz played...which was also very physical minutes and in pk situations.   Chara shouldnt be playing more minutes bc of this.  He needs someone that can chew up those minutes and pk.

    Like i said.  We will see what happens in a weeks time.  I say they sell the farm if they dont make ground.  Lou is a wise old man.  If he can make his team better long term he will.   If he can make a run he will also add on.  i dont see them making the playoffs.  Detroit may be vulnerable but they also arent shy to add on.  And from past experience they are a sneaky group that arent shy to make deals.  The last team i want the bruins to play in round one is detroit.

    Very interested in volch. The guy is a stand out defensively. Come trade deadline he will be showcased and I think hell be traded . 

    New jers won't make playoffs and the incredibl e years of nj success might finally be coming to an end. One thing cant underestimate lou - a remarkable hockey mind

    If people want a New Jersey d-man,then why not Bryce Salvador,6'3",215 lbs,left hand shot,1 yr left on $3.2 mil deal. Not big on the offensive side ,but the B's have that already.

    by Mike Cole on Mon, Feb 24, 2014 at 7:04PM

    The Bruins will do something (but not much) at the trade deadline. When Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli wants to get a deal done, he usually gets a deal done — unless the Calgary Flames are involved. Chiarelli has made it known that he’d like to add a defenseman after losing Dennis Seidenberg for the rest of the season. He has some options, but it won’t be easy. The reduced salary cap is making movement difficult for all general managers, but Chiarelli should be able to make something happen. He’s happy with his team as it stands, but adding a little bit more depth on the blue line could make all the difference for a team like the Bruins.
