What do you Bruins fans think about Jagr? Obviously still has a ton of skill and can provide a nice veteran leadership presence. Besides who wouldn't want that mullet here in town!
Think about it. He has shown great chemistry with Krejci while playing in tournaments for the Czech's and still has a ton of talent that could help the power play. Has 25 points this season so his production hasn't been an issue.
Dare I say what if you convince him to stick around for another season. Trade Krejci in the off-season and finally move Seguin to center. Jagr is credited a lot with Claude Giroux's jump last season, could he help the Bruins top youngster.
Can the Bruins move Krejci for Bobby Ryan, which was talked about a lot last summer.
Imagine this next season...
Can always re-sign Horton too. Maybe short term makes sense while you figure out Spooner and his concussion issues. Can always go with Kelly-Peverley-Horton as the 3rd line.
Lots of possibilities for the Bruins. Not getting Iginla isn't the end of the world. Getting Jagr likely wouldn't cost you Koko either. Koko has a ton of skill, I am personally excited to see what the kid can do. Give him half a season in Providence next season to see where he is at. Jagr is also a nice stop gap while Koko and Knight get a full season in the AHL.
Why not? I view Jagr as a rental. Unless he does great and loves it in Boston. I've thought of the Krejci/Ryan possibilities and that seems like a draft day type trade. They supposedly want a 2nd line C. And, I'd like a better scorer than Horton. After each team assesses their season. I'll take it a step further if we flame out early. I'd like to move Seguin to C. His plays are made at speed or in the middle of the ice. Not along the boards. He's no Bergeron defensively. But, neither is Krejci. Lucic/Rask for Taylor Hall+. The extra we get from Edmonton can go to Anaheim to balance out those trades.
Taylor/Tyler/Bobby Ryan 16,850,000m
Soderberg/Spooner/Peverly 6,500,000m est
Svedberg 1m? 3,000,000m
We'd be at 61, 133,000. Would like to upgrade that RW for Marchand and Bergeron to play with. If we deal Kelly+ prospects, that gives you about 6.5m to play with. Could sign Horton for 4m. I'm not crazy about that. Make a bigger trade of Boychuk/Kelly and picks/prospects for a Top 4 defenseman. See what you have in Koko and Knight. If neither ready, I doubt it. But, rest of talent upfront gives you some time to make an in season move. BTW I'm not a Rask hater. Doubt if we would be this bold. Just throwing it out there. Doubt we can beat pitt in 2013/14. Maybe, with Subban or Svedber we'd be ready for them in 2014/15.
