    Please stay on subject and try to have some reasoning behind your proposals.

    Why team(s) do this, CAP, NMC, NTC, etc....


    If the few of you insist on flaming each other take it to PM with each other.

    This is NOT to discuss past drafts.

    Do not post rumors without reputable link or be prior vetted as an insider.


    Going forward there will be warnings and bans.

    Thank you!

    Nelson and Filppula are two interesting options that might be cost effective.

    The last time the Bruins beat the Capitals was 2014, it’s about more than one game.

    I'd rather rub lotion on my dad's legs than trade Charlie for Saad and Keith.

    Krug’s career high on the PP is 25 points. He currently has 18 in 33 games. So, yes he isn’t what he used to be, he is doing even better.

    Philly has Gostisbehere, don’t need to Krug and they sure as **** aren’t retaining 3 for 5 years for Cehlarik and a 2nd

    Aberg is a winger and pretty bad defensively. He had issues in Edmonton on top of his play.

    That’s great, but the team needs a top 6 winger that will help them at even strength as well as the powerplay. Do you think the drop off in PP production would really be that great if Mcavoy was in there instead of Krug? He currently has 0.64 ppg with half the amount of powerplay TOI.

    Considering McAvoy can’t even find his way to the ice, yes. I would personally take DeBrusk off the PP and use both. Charlie out high, Krug on the half wall and Pasta on the other side

    Charlie’s production is also mostly been 5 on 5. His PP work left a lot to be desired, he can improve, but he won’t replace Krug overnight.

    I don't think anyone said anything about SHOULD

    when you and I come up with a billion dollars we can go buy the team from Jacobs and hire the president and gm and wo whatever we want

    checking my wallet I can contribute almost 500 dollars. you probably live closer to boston then I do and since you need to come up with the rest of the 999 million dollars before we get control I will just let you go handle the paperwork

    once you do... I 100% agree with you... lets keep McAvoy

    until we get the team I will continue to point out that sometimes our team doesn't make trades we are happy with here and often young kids like seguin and thornton are traded for returns that look like crap

    I wish it wasn't so... but I feel the team is reluctant to give big 6 million dollar contracts to guys that they feel haven't proven it yet

    I like Mike but that would be an all time horrible trade

    That doesn’t help the team at even strength, still need someone that can play on the second line and probably a 3C if they want to contend this year. I don’t mind picking up a rental 3C but Schenn would be the best option available.

    Also, Gostisbehere isn’t as good as Krug, so maybe the Flyers move him out. Not sure but I think they need a winger like Dadanov or Voracek to compete this year.

    I'd still want him whether its on the wing or center,maybe I'm remembering wrong but I thought back in 16-17 he was playing center for the Preds during their Cup run,either way I really liked his game.

    Why is he bad defensively? I'll admit I haven't seen him play a lot but when I have nothing really glowing stuck out.

    1. McAvoy is not getting traded! I would bet my kids RESP'S on it.
    2. Ferland is not the type of UFA that's worth a 1st, let alone a 1st and a prospect! Hard ****ing pass on that!

    He was never a center. For third line he would only potentially replace Donato and I don’t see a point. Aberg-JFK-Donato would get murdered nightly.

    why are we talking about trading mcavoy? :laugh:

    i like ferland and would consider a 2nd/prospect for him after the canes don't get a 1st.
    ideally we can find a better player that's gonna hang around longer. but if we're talking
    pure rental RW, i would want stone, simmonds or silfverberg. silfverberg would cost the
    least and he could be a really nice fit on this team. hope the ducks keep losing.

    Stone is a tier above those guys. He would help in the playoffs the most. I'd give up value for him just for a rental, now that Ottawa got over its not trading in the division hang-up

    I like Anderson and Wood. Wood is better suited to current game great skater and nasty. With NJ out of it a package of prospects might get him. Cant see Columbus moving Anderson, I expe t them to be buyers at deadline

    I believe Krug likely signs a multi year deal here after this contract expires

    Let's say the Bruins trade Heinen and add a center. What does the 3rd line look like?

    JFK can play RW, but he's more comfortable at C. I guess if you acquired a pure C though...

    Donato - Trade - JFK
