    Posted 07/09/2014 02:24:59 EDT

    I'm pretty sure the Bruins have won more playoff rounds than any other team in the league over the last few years. When you look at when they lost since '10, two times there was an injury to David Kre more »

    Kelly is the obvious target when he's healthy.  But he does leave a hole on the PK that was obvious against the Habs so someone needs to be able to step in there.  Spooner?!? Boychuck is the other opt more »

    Personally I blame my Jaromir Jagr avatar and that I wasn't able to put a proper Joe Juneau on there.  I haven't figured out this stupid new Boston.com yet.

    The coach is excellent.  He did have a flaw though.  The Habs did an outstanding job of attacking the D without the puck, knowing that the D to D pass is how the Bruins set up their breakout.  It caus more »

    Let's pick up a moderately successful scorer who plays dirty, won't fight, is VERY frequently injured, is questionable defensively and has a horrible attitude and a high cap hit.  Make it happen PC!!

    Posted 07/08/2014 01:56:26 EDT

    Mueller stinks.  I'd rather they give Fraser or other prospects a shot through the first half and deal for someone proven before the deadline if they don't pan out.

    Most fans don't want him traded, and PC doesn't want to move him.  He's very valuable.

    He looked very impressive at times, but he's better as a center.  Also, on the third line he faces weaker opposition.  He may not do as well at both ends playing tougher players.  He is slick on the P more »

    Actually, it is causual. More ice time does cause more scoring.  Not to say it's one:one or a perfect relationship of any kind, but one does cause the other very, very often. And there is lots of data more »

    Of course, but if you are evaluating whether a move was a good one or not, you have to take what you gave and what you got.  The Bruins could trade Bartowski, Caron and Savard's cap hit for Crosby... more »

    With 8 solid defencemen, he seems like the most logical one to move assuming Boychuck stays.  The Bruins likely offered the minimum to keep his rights and are looking to find him a new home.  He files more »

  • Posted 07/08/2014 10:21:03 EDT

    I like Seguin, but the talent the Bruins got back exceeds what they gave up.  This is especially true in contributions per minute of ice time or per $$$ of cap space. Reilly Smith was the key.  20+31= more »

  • Forum Post: Krug's Value

    Posted 07/04/2014 02:34:30 EDT

    Krug is extremely valuable.  He's especially valuable because he has elite offensive skill but won't get paid as high as the Subban's of the world because he's small and not a go-to guy defensively.   more »

  • Posted 07/04/2014 12:05:45 EDT

    Oh, and the cap thing with Eberle is not the same as Iginla.  Since it's a trade, you could arrange Edmonton to keep a little of Eberle's salary.

    If Edmonton would seriously consider JB for Eberle, I would do that.  Obviously more would have to go Edmonton's way.  With Seidenberg and McQuaid back, they could possibly give up Boychuck. The other more »

    They could try to pick up a bargain player who is looking to revive his career, much like Mason Raymond in Toronto last year.  It should be a right-shot for the sake of versatility.  I'm sure there ar more »

    Which wing you prefer often depends much more on your style of play and vision than which hand you use.  Think for a moment about how most people in the world are right-handed, but hockey players tend more »

    Eriksson's average season is actually measurably better than Iginla's season from last year.  Playing on the top line with an additional minute or two of ice time per game we should expect Loui to be more »

    He has put up dominant numbers over his playoff career, and the Bruins don't have many other player that play his type of game.  I'd be fine with 7 per year given the rising cap.

    Krug is a special player, so if in some weird world I had to choose, it would be him.  He has hall of fame talent if he was so very short.  But I would keep both without question.  Smith is a solid to more »
