What's going to be big this offseason is getting a good pick and drafting an explosive forward that can hopefully operate alongside Savvy with Looch on the other wing (eventually). Until then, with both Savvy out and no elite winger (yup, I can see why you guys didn't like Ryder the last year), he is deligated to a grinding role. Based on his contract, it sucks...but hey, that doesn't kick in until next season, anyways...

We shall see.
Actually we was being called a "first line player" by Bruins fans. The same fans that were saying trading Komi for Looch straight up on penalties was bad for the Bruins. The fact is, anyone who plays with Kessel and Savard would see their stats padded. Thats what happened with Looch and we are seeing exactly that problem. Hes just another plugger in the NHL. Nothing special. Unfortunately for the Bruins they bought into it and OVERPAID by alot. And they will pay for it for years.
