In response to BigBadnBruin's comment: Why would some team struggling to reach the cap floor, not be interested in taking Savard off the Bruins hands? That would be 8.014M of cap space used up, for on more »

Nonis gets himself out of an awful contract, in exchange for five years of not being able to bank cap space and basically pinning the team at a max of $5.3m over the cap during that time (as in after more »

What a bizarre trade, that's for sure. The folks in Columbus must be breathing a huge sigh of relief, even if it means being stuck with Clarkson. His presences is probably better than the nothing fo more »

In response to MILANlucic17's comment: I am not a cap geek or capologist from what I have read about my understanding is Krejci could be put on long term IR and if he is kept out until the playoffs if more »

Krejci going on LTIR does nothing until salary is taken on to take it's place, and then based on the discussion earlier this season (when Capgeek was still a resourse) doing so sets the benefit you re more »

Hockey loss at least, I'll take that over some of the other recent losses. On to NJ.

I think the real question should be: who is Doctor Doom?

What a weird team. Small point: two games where Ferlin looked like a decent fourth-liner. Regarding Krejci, his season started with ten points in ten games. Then he went down, and hasn't been as pr more »

In a season where second periods have been disastrous far too often, that one was emblematic.

Re-reading Wheats' post, doesn't it sound more like the rumor is that Chiarelli has a trade/trades set to bring in salary, and is shopping Seidenberg and Eriksson as options for clearing space? As in more »

There's also the alleged Chiarelli Edler crush.

Wow, you can't make up luck that bad on the OT goal.

If the Oilers want Soderberg, they likely only need wait for the offseason, then offer him Pouliot money. I can see why they might not include him in trade speculation, the only reason to grab him no more »

These past few games have seen a rate of catastrophic errors from the defense I last remember seeing during those days when Wideman patrolled the blueline. Let's see this be game one of getting that more »

Methot extended at almost $5m per, that conversation's now moot.

Chara's an awkward case. His deal was signed in the fallout of the Kovalchuk contract. Before going away, Capgeek showed his cap hit going forward as following the rules as-defined by the previous C more »
Posted 02/13/2015 10:33:32 EST
Chara's role on this team is to be the anti-star, the guy who limits the Crosby's and Tavares's of the league. The team is built around him having this role. I don't think there's another D around t more »

See McQuaid flying in to make body contact and thunderously hit the boards. Follow the puck. Look back and see McQuaid on the ice. Watching on TV, I immediately assumed he had McQuaided himself agai more »

Ages ago, I made a post about the Bruins' play tempo. I think I am going to fall back to that. Foot speed may play in to it, but I think a bigger part is how excessively deliberate they try to be wi more »

For what it's worth, Paille is 5th among Bruin forwards in PK time per game, and either second or third in effectiveness (depending on whether you count Cunningham). -- Proud user of Chambraigne; No more »
