Discussion in 'Boston Bruins' started by TP, Oct 26, 2018.
Halak puts together a nice run of a few games and people already want to trade Tuuka already. This place.
Let's trade him to Edmonton for Kassian. GRIT.
Now that Vaakanainen/Lauzon have firmly established themselves as regular NHLers, trade Krug.
Kampher has returned to the lineup. Time to move Miller.
If the Bruins want to target a forward, I wouldn't mind them going after Tolvanen. He would fit well in the top 6.
I've wanted Kassian as a Shawn Thornton replacement since he got clean. Huge body, decent straight line speed. Good for 20 points on little ice time. And, if someone decides to step up to Marchand, you can put out there and have him beat the brains out of the idiot. Making too much money for his role, but it isn't egregiously so.
He wouldn't be the worst acquisition Sweeney has made.
I'd be worried if these types of proposals didn't exist lol
If we're making a trade for a forward, I'm looking for a top 6 guy who plays heavier style of game. Now I don't mean they need to be a big slow bruiser, but more of a Rick Nash type. you know, plays a 200ft game, has size and skill...they are not easy to find, but that's what I'd be looking for.
Is there a way we can do a backes Bobby ryan trade?. I think Bobby can find his game with David. Backes is dead money. At least we might get a 20 goal guy .
Bobby Ryan hasn't scored 20+ goals since 2015-2016. He's been declining in the goal scoring department actually. He scored 13 goals in 2016-2017 and 11 goals in 2017-2018. He's on pace for 10 goals this season. We'll see if he gets hot or continues the downward trend.
So you want to trade for a declining player who makes 1.5M more than Backes? Pass hard asf on that idea. Book it!!!!!!!!!!
Established after both have combined for three NHL games?!
We can all speculate about what Chia would want for whatever decent young player they have, but we all know best, we can get that player for scraps.
We could probably get Drai, Puljujarvi or RNH for Nordstrom + Backes @ 50% retained + 3rd round pick. All you have to do is tell Chia they are responsible gritty players.
Already? Maybe if "already" means over the last couple of years.
We need to package our deadwood assets and get anything positive to help the second or third lines. Too much pressure for first line come playoff time. Donny needs to package all together backes senyshyn and zboril. These 3 are not gonna do anything for us. I don't know what you can get for them.
I think that was sarcasm?
What a brilliant idea.
The B’s should package all their “deadwood assets” together and get something of value back.
Why didn’t Sweeney think of this sooner?
Take these bad assets and add krug and get a good young forward back. I'm sure it's possible .
I think a kid like Lauzon could be a real threat to Millers job.Sooner or later they will be ready and Bruins will need to make decisions. Miller to me is nothing special.
What are these bad assets you speak of?
Senyshyn zboril backes add krug as the sweetner and get me finally a winger for David. We need 2 super lines to win this thing. We are set on D and goal.
Hahaha, oh JP Nolan.....Good ol' JP! Those assets are not bad at all so stop alluding to them being bad. Krug wouldn't be the sweetener. He would be the main piece going back and those two with him better bring back a very good player. Also, I'm confused by your wording...... You think they're bad assets but they're good enough assets to get Krejci a winger? This doesn't make any sense.
****ing Book It!!!!
Any way we can somehow try and acquire Wennberg from CBJ? (I've wanted him for years)
How about a veteran guy like Jeff Carter?
Definitely, especially if Lauzon plays with a physical edge. IMO that’s Miller’s best asset.
With Flyers failing hard might be a good time to check in on Simmonds.
I think Miller is a very solid bottom pairing defenseman. I'd view him as a quality #5. He's a guy who can move up if need be, but not someone you want there permanently. He has gotten better every year, and really took off once he took a step forward with his skating. I'll need to see a lot more from Lauzon in one game before I start saying he could be a threat to Miller. Lauzon did look very good last night though. I hope he gets more minutes next game; only played 11ish.
Columbus just re-signed Wennberg to an extension and he's in his 2nd year of it. He's signed to a really team friendly cap hit of 4.9M AAV over that as well. He's a young and talented center as you know. Not seeing why they would deal him.
