    Bob McKenzie noted it first but one thing I think that Thornton may be bringing up in his appeal is the Scott Walker/Aaron Ward incident from a few years ago. Walker suckers Ward, knocks him out, he m more »

    Bob McKenzie and others have the B's as one of three finalists to sign J.T. Brown from UND. I like these moves. If they don't pan out, only costs you some $.  If they do pan out gives you valuable dep more »

    Posted 10/17/2011 05:33:58 EDT

    Just a couple of quick notes on our guys in the OHL.... 1) Camara and Spooner's teams suck.  They're like 3-19 combined so far.  As a result neither one is doing anything (yet).  Spooner's team is ave more »

    One name I'm not seeing anyone mention as a possible fit in Boston (to take Recchi's spot) is Kobasew. He's unrestricted, won't cost much, was well liked in the room while in Boston, gives CJ another more »

  • Forum Post: Trade prediction

    Posted 02/15/2011 11:18:42 EST

    Within 24 hours I predict a trade very similar to this will be made.. Kaberle and 3rd rounder Tor got from Phily for Wheeler, 2nd rounder from Bos (min pick) and probably Kampfer or prospect. Kelly fi more »

    Is roughly 2.1 million for next year...OR the same as Blake Wheeler....


    Doubt he can afford both next year to play on the 3rd/4th lines...

    Deal might make more sense if Wheeler is about to be shipped to Toronto in a deal for Kaberle tomorrow. That way we have a forward to plug in for him. That's about the only way I see that working. Kel more »

    Neil signed a deal this year at 2m per season for Ott.  That's a lot of change in the salary cap era for a 4th line forward..Thornton makes about 1/3 of that for example and his #'s this year are bett more »

  • Posted 02/06/2011 11:46:18 EST

    While I agree with many posters thoughts on the appropriate "value" for Kaberle, I think you're missing one HUGE point. He is an UFA at the end of the year and he has a NO TRADE clause. HE's also said more »

    Leafs next ten games are KEY to how they finish IMO. They have roughly 30 games left...they have 43 points. If they play .500 hockey and win say 1/2 their remaining games they'll end up with roughly 7 more »

    Update tonight... Spooner had 2 goals and an assist in the Petes 5-4 loss. He now has 9-9=18 totals on the year in only 11 games. Also Cunningham continues to lead the WHL in scoring (although he was more »

    LOL...if Savard is ruled to be a FA...bury Ryder in the minors and with his 4 million/Savy's $4 million and a couple of tweaks we can sign Kovy ourselves!

    Per Fluto...2.2 milllion...which is lower than I thought he'd get...B's are probably slightly happy...

    Now at least they know what their costs are the rest of the way...with both him and Seguin.

    One thing teams have to be careful about with Nabokov is that if he signs after he turns 35 then ALL the cap hit has to be honored. There are no "buyouts" etc. allowed for guys who retire, go the KHL, more »

    One reason I can see that happening from the Bruins perspective is to "get out from under" the long term commitment to Savard.  Kaberle is only signed for this upcoming year.  So if he does well we ca more »
