What will Chiarelli do?

    Re: What will Chiarelli do?

      (As I stated a couple weeks ago)---  Chiarelli: (looking like he hasn't slept in days) "We brought in Chris Phillips today. We feel that he's the type of veteran presense we need going forward. Blah, blah, blah. Helps the younger players. Blah, blah, blah."

      Then asked if there were other deals out there: "Nothing made sense from our standpoint. The market was really tough. We decided that it was in our best interest to stand pat at that point."

       Then: "We feel quite comfortable going forward into the playoffs with the personel we have. We didn't want to dramatically change our team chemistry and what we were able to build. We like the team we have and look forward to competing for the cup."

     

        We need a guy like Girardi and not another anual Ottawa wash-up. We also need to improve the fourth line.  As much as I like Thornton/Campbell, it's time to bid them farewell. I find it hard to believe there aren't better options available.

       Personally, I'd try to make a multi-player deal with the Rangers to bring in Callahan, Girardi and a fourth line guy (Dorsett?)

    What's the cost going to be if Chiarelli doesn't bring someone in ?

    [/QUOTE]

    A first round exit perhaps. It's a tough trade market no doubt but the D kids aren't all right to take us deep.

    Re: What will Chiarelli do?

    Christian Ehrhoff anyone? He would be a caphit of 4M for the next 7 Years

    Buffalo’s Christian Ehrhoff #10 LHD | 6'2", 203 lbs Age 31 on Pace for: 39pts TOI 24:01 S:180 PTSPG .49
    Scouting Report
    Assets:     Owns good hockey sense, elite skating ability (highlighted by excellent acceleration) and the talent to log big minutes. Loves to move the puck and knows when to join the attack. Can quarterback a power play and also be used in defensive situations.
    Flaws:     Plays a chippier game than earlier in his career, but can still struggle against bigger NHL forwards. He can also make bad decisions under pressure from time to time, which will lead to weak zone coverage and bad penalties. His shot isn't always on target.
    Potential:     Big-minute offensive defenseman.

    Re: What will Chiarelli do?

    Boston has been blessed with great defenseman that backboned the team, from Orr, Park, Bourque (Kluzak), and now Chara who while still effective has seen his best years. This should not just be a rental move but a top 2 guy to be the next future leader. Rask was just locked in for years; Subban wont be happy riding the pine so include him and another youngster and make a deal.

    Re: What will Chiarelli do?

    Don't think you're going to see a blockbuster here. Also, I'm not sure why so many people are ready to deal Bart. He may not be as much of a goal-scorer as Krug, but he's a very good PMD, has been solid in his end, and has been eating up the minutes. CJ doesn't play this guy ~22 minutes a night because he's a chump. To me, Bart is the next Don Sweeney/Andrew Ference of the B's, only he's a better skater than both.

    I think you'll see a Mark Stuart or similar, a veteran who can add depth, will be reliable during the playoffs, and can play top-4 defense in the short run.

    The B's are not getting a Drew Doughty stud-like top-2 dman as a rental this season.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Stuart back in black and gold.

    Talk is Meszaros is in the mix, likely to be a 3rd round pick or a prospect, and chara is edging the Bs to grab him. I like Phillips also if its a rental and a low price.

    Then who sits? Meszaros shoots left which would mean Bart sits or leaves. I knew Giardi would resign and was too good to be true...

    "Both Chiarelli and coach Claude Julien have said that if a deal is not completed prior to the March 5 trade deadline, the Bruins would be comfortable moving forward with the defensive core in place. “I’m sure if there’s something available and we can get some help, we will,” Julien said. “If not, I’m going forward feeling comfortable those guys will step it up like they did last year.”

     

    So how are the Bs looking on D after the 1st two games back from the break ?

    I doubt PC sits on his behind, that kind of talk benefits him letting other gms know hes ok with his team when in reality hes not. I know its only 2 games after the break but man to play that bad more than good is not a good sign, I still hear commentators talking about time zone and jet lag affects going on but  for god sakes, bergeron isnt showing any.  Stay close to the breaking news between now and monday folks.

    I would send Subban, Kelly, Caron and Barkowski to Vancouver for Kessler (Who wants out) and Alexander Edler. 

    Kessler (5 mill) Edler (3.5 mill)


    Kelly (3.5 mill) Caron and Bart (1.3 mill combined)

     

    probably going to need to clear some cap room to do it.

    So, you'd based your decisions on 2 (TWO) games after an emotional break in the schedule. Good for us, you're not our GM. You'd base a move on 2 games, and not on the fact that the B's are still at or near the TOP of the GA catagory. Yup, nothing like a knee jerk reaction. "Chara had a minus 1 game, so trade him". 

    Come on, surely you are a more knowledgable fan than that.

    Why would Vancouver make this deal? They need another goalie like they need a hole in the head.  They can't score to save their lives, and you want to give them defensive specialist, an AHL player who can't score, and a good Dman for a top level forward. Seriously did you think this through?

    Show me where I said trade Chara or criticized him. Also I didn't react from todays game. I've been saying all along before the Olympics break that the Bruins need a big defenseman that can play a lot of miutes, big minutes.

    You would know this if you started at the begining of the thread and checked the dates.

    You and Bobby Orr still don't know where the **** PerrySound is!

    It was an "emotional break" apparently and that is why the Bruins D looks like crud.

    I think we all agree they need another top 4 Dman. But I can't base anything on 2 games back from a 2 week break, and Rask didn't play in one of them. Johnson looked so bad. They should have easily won that game, then Ovie had a good game. Happens.

    IMHO, we need Hamilton to be 3 to 5 years more experienced. Problem solved.

    If I we're betting, I'd take Meszaros.  If Lou decides to deal Brodeur, maybe Volchenkov is available but until then, I would expect Meszaros.  They won't overpay for Phillips b/c he just isn't worth it.
