My initial reaction is that he is an offensive defenseman who likes to take big risks and not great in the defensive zone. I don't see Sweeney biting.

My concern about the Bruins is mostly about their defense. Chara has permament PCL damage with only 10% of it still connected to his left knee. Seidenberg is slowing down. The guy we got in the Lucic more »

I'm not enamored about the Hamilton trade either but I think Sweeney wanted the Hamilton situation cleared before the draft. I also hate the Rinaldo trade as it's just so stupid in today's NHL. Everyt more »

In response to fishers5's comment:
Don't disagree at all BUT will they stay healthy and can they score more than last year....Always Right.....at least in my mind

Hopefully Talbot gets traded and Connolly will probably be signed.

Hayes is a Boston boy. Hopefully that translates to that he grew up a Bruins fan and will do good here.

Smith likes $ (see last year's holdout). One year later Smith is gone. Mmmm.
Posted 07/01/2015 10:06:24 EDT
He reportedly turned down a 4 year $16 million contract from the Ducks. I guess that extra 1 year was the difference.

In response to mattbs' comment: If the Bs offerred 5.5 mil. for 6 years why did Hamilton refuse? I'm too lazy to look this up extensively but I would say that this has to be something about after tax more »

I like this trade a lot. I think SJ is in decline and this could potentially be a top 10 pick in next year's draft.

He's a John Scott type player the Bruins have been complaining about (dirty, out to injure people, juvenile punk, etc.), just shorter.

In response to kitchener's comment:
Sounds like Bruins offered Hamilton 33 mil over 6 yrs 5.5 a yr he wanted 7.5 ,yeah would have traded him too.

Just give LA next year's Cup already.
Posted 06/26/2015 05:58:59 EDT
This looks like an offer sheet reward. Edmonton offered almost the same payback but Sweeney also wanted their top defenseman prospect. Looks like PC and Sweeney will now be enemies.

Congrats to Sweeney for first NHL trade.
Posted 06/23/2015 08:19:57 EDT
The Flames did well with Theo Fleury also at pick# 166. All those high Flames picks were a big part of their 89 Stanley Cup.
Posted 06/23/2015 07:49:50 EDT
Also Rick MacLeish was one of the niftiest players I've ever seen and would have been a great fit with Rick Middleton.
Posted 06/23/2015 07:45:50 EDT
I don't think you need to be 55 to have a memory of the 70's Bruins... 50 is probably the cutoff though. Regarding that 70 Draft, Boston didn't do too shabby with Reggie Leach and Rick MacLeish. The B more »

Don't kid yourself ... the Bruins need Lucic and Lucic needs the Bruins.
Posted 06/12/2015 04:47:17 EDT
This would obviously be a salary dump trade to have money for Hamilton, Spooner and McQuaid. I would prefer that Krejci be the dump due to him being injury prone ... something I worry about a lot. Luc more »

The Bruins obviously need to do a salary dump trade to get Hamilton, Spooner and McQuaid. I would prefer that Krejci be the dump and not Lucic. Krejci's prone to being injuries worries me. Lucic with more »

Yeah OK things aren't so simple as I first thought. It does look like Kelly and Smith will have to be moved ... but no more.
Posted 06/10/2015 03:25:12 EDT
I think Bishop's getting into the Hawks head. If the Hawks lose tonight it's over.
Posted 06/10/2015 03:19:33 EDT
In response to misterpaulo's comment: I'm thinking Hamiltons contract demands could possibly put the writing on the wall for Krug. Wouldn't be surprised to see him dealt at the draft. Yeah, especiall more »

I say if Dougie wants 6-7 million dollars give it to him. If a Jeff Petry is worth $5.5 M then you're not going to get Dougie for less. All Sweeney has to do is get rid of Marc Savard's $4M cap hit a more »
