After the deadline in '11, I felt as though Chiarelli had done the moves that were necessary to bring a Cup to Boston. That we had the league's best roster heading into the post-season. I think we had an opportunity to add those pieces again and do the same THIS year. People were upset about prices paid (we STILL hear about Kaberle and Wheeler and Stuart), but would it have been worth it to bring in a real difference-maker?
Or do you (like Latrappe) feel as though this isn't the year anyway?
I still don't know. For me, Jagr is an entity that I can't accurately assess the value of.
I feel the same way about Jagr.I was hoping that we could get a top 6 forward who we could use on the 3rd line.Jagr is not someone who is suited for the 3rd line.At 41 can he still be an effective top 6 guy in the playoffs? Time will tell,I only hope Jagr can be as productive as Krejci,Horton,Marchand ,Bergeron.I don't expect him to average a point a game but who knows,he just might.
