For starters, name a Bruin D-man that can hoof the puck from his own zone and establish possession in the offensive zone on the PP, or 5 v 5. You can't, b/c we have no one like that. He's like a human speed pass for the neutral zone. He'd be a huge asset. A guy like this opens up all kinds of possibilities for this team, especially when you consider some of our key forwards weren't exactly blessed in the speed department. Add puck retrieval, and it's a no brainer.

But, I wouldn't sweat it, West. Not happening.
The Bruins haven't had a problem gaining the zone 5-5 or on the PP so far this season. Their problem runs a lot deeper than adding one guy to the PP.

Subban has a booming shot, that's what he would bring to our PP. We have guys that can shoot the puck hard from the point.

It's never going to happen and I'm thankful for that.
