It doesn't help that there don't appear to be many real good options out there as a fallback plan, but as I was saying in another thread, maybe this new eating salary rule they have will help Chia get more creative and get guys we had no clue would be on the radar because we are just looking at their cap hits and thinking they wouldn't fit the Bruins.

Gonna be tough to find a guy comparable to the impact Iginla could've provided though.

Real soft market, outrageous asking prices,too many GM`s in denial that their teams are still in the running for the playoffs = minimal options for Chia which = countless of ugly threads here from fans yakking about Chia`s love of sitting on his hands, can`t wait
