    Krug's a fine player, but unless he becomes an all-around star he won't demand huge money.  Also, Chara's paycheck isn't massive for a #1D as we go forward with a growing cap.  PK Subban's contract wi more »

    Smith and Soderberg were much bigger factors on the pp than Hamilton last year.  Sometimes I feel like reporters don't even watch the games.

    Smith had 6 points in 8 games (a 60pt pace) on the 3rd line to start October.  During his scorching hot November where he put up 14 points, over 30% were on the powerplay (where Marchand didn't play). more »

    Tatar played a key role for the Red Wings.  He's very good.  I would say Smith is a little better with a higher ceiling.  But if I'm PC I like this.  It would be great to get Smith signed for 3 years more »

    At least a defenseman will be moved, they won't carry 8.  Caron is also likely out.  Some moves WILL happen before season opener.  I'd be fine if that's all they do and they sign Smith and Krug and gi more »

    I would agree that at times he is among the very best players in the game.  In the '13 playoffs I honestly felt he was easily among the game's top-5 best. I think his one major flaw was shown last yea more »

    I don't see Spooner on the fourth line.  I would see him on 3rd line LW with Fraser moving to RW.  I would experiment with this if I'm Julien.  Fraser is a lefty too, but has played RW before.  That's more »

      Answer:  No one.  Krug is a possibility but still extremely unlikely.  In order to make an offer sheet worthwhile you have to offer more than Boston is willing to match.  They'll match anything up t more »

    I'm not sure why Krug and Smith can't sign offer sheets.  They've both completed the EL deals.  It's why Krug had it worked in as part of his signing that he played a couple games for Boston in year o more »

    The scenario isn't crazy, but I'm not sure the end result isn't better than where they are currently.  Coyle's an interesting player, but is he a better prospect than Spooner or Koko?  Both Bruins pro more »

    I love the team as it is.  There hasn't been something fun like the signing of Iginla, but at the same time we go into the season knowing Smith is a 20g, 50pt guy when last year he was just a prospect more »

    Both team and players want to get as much bang for their buck that they can here.  These talks are much tougher than the "I'll take whatever you'll give me" stance of Bartowski and Caron.  I imagine t more »

    I watched a lot of Cameron Mann in junior.  I don't know what the writer wrote, but Cam was a ridiculously good scorer in junior.  Much more Bure than Neely though.  Breakaway speed and an exceptional more »

    Kaleta is dirt.  And not good dirt.  He's a garbage player and having him on the team could hurt morale.

    Basically my thought is that we have 2 players that are in their early 20's and have shown very strong AHL play and a decent showing in the NHL auditions, plus about four others that are a bit younger more »

    I know it's the exception, that's why I'm not saying there are 5 or 6 guys ready to do it.  Looking in particular at Spooner or Fraser, I think they have a shot.  Fraser's been a prolific goal scorer more »

    The Penguins lost their #2 and 3 D while signing Ehrhoff.  They also traded Neal for Hornqvist, who typically scores about 50% less than Neal.  I would call Pittsburgh's downgrade worse than Boston's. more »

    I don't like judging a player on a highlight reel, but he clearly looked excellent and a step above his peers in those clips.   In response to no1bruinsfan's comment: [QUOTE] Not sure if anyone has se more »

    Do to player hype and scouting inexperience at the time the Thornton call gets a bye.  I'll say that like Hamilton your skills have progressed nicely since your debut.   In response to BadHabitude's c more »

    I hate the charging rule as it stands now.  It needs an overhaul.
