Eklund: Bruins have sights set on Suter or Liles

Boston: Silent until today on the rumour front, Hossa makes a ton of sense. They also need a d-man and have sights set on Liles or Suter out of Nashville.
Hossa & Liles are the players I've been pining for all year. Suter would be sweet, but I'd imagine it would take Kessel to get Suter, so I'm not sure how that would affect the Hossa deal, if at all.

SUTER! SUTER! SUTER!

That's the only way I'd be ok with trading Mark Stuart...getting a guy like Ryan Suter.

Jeez, do that and a Hossa trade and suddenly this team looks unreal heading into next year, and even free agency with money to spare.

Talk about being "tougher to play against"


Chiarelli wins the GM of the Year award if he can pull off both those deals.

I would love for this to happen but why would nashville trade suter and what do they need that we have on our team?

Granted the guy is generally full of ****... but I really really wanna believe him on this one. Especially Suter... I like Liles, but Suter would be absolutely huge. I really don't think it'll take Kessel to get it done either. Gonna be an interesting next week.

I believe Suter is an RFA this summer, but not sure why they just wouldn't resign him. Would seem an unlikely candidate to be moved from where I am too.

Is the some you are referring to me, because you believe there is no way in hell Suter is coming here? I take some offense to that because I believe you intended that to come in a snide manner. I would expect better than that from you Kaoz. A man can dream, and being that I'm a man, I am apparently well with in my rights to dream about acquiring Suter.

Probably hinges on how much Shea Weber wants. Nashville's budget is pretty tight. I love Suter, but Weber is a guy you build your team around. Suter is more of that prototypical #2-#3 defenseman.

Suter over Weber? Interesting. Not my choice, but interesting.

I like Liles a lot, though.

You got that right. Two weeks ago, I said I'd be OK if PC did nothing. But now, I'd be awfully disapointed if he didn't make at least one big move (and I'd consider adding Liles a big move).

Isn't that what we've been pining for over the last 6 months plus? A legitimate number 2? Bringing him on board would be huge.... and I don't think its out of the realm of possibility for him to be a capable number 1 in a year or two. I'm getting worked up about nothing, however... Eklund predicting something is a curse if there ever was one.

I'm in the same boat PM.... but for the right price and for the right player. I can certainly see scenarios of a big move being made, and me being upset it was made.

That would be pretty awesome. I'd say the chance of this happening is slim to none, but that would be unbelievable.

I think it's just a case of dealing from strength to address a need. Nashville is LOADED with young stud dmen (D. Hamhuis, S. Weber, V. Koistinen, R. Suter, K. Klein, not to mention Zidlicky who's not young but is still important), and has been interested in adding some top6 talent to their lineup all year.

I could see a Ward for Liles trade... with an immediate announcement of a 3-year extension for Liles.

Exactly, he jumped all over a rumor PJ Stock made up today, this guy has zero credibility.

Eklund is the National Enquirer of hockey.

no not you in particular TT, just a realistic statement. I would actually include myself in this, as I'm all hyped up for (T)Dday now as well .

Honestly, if we land Hossa I'll be sufficiently ecstatic. If we landed Hossa and Suter I'd probably wish I were wearing depends.

Suter I think is a pipe dream, if I'm Nashville I don't give him up. How that team can be so damn good paying out so little money is impressive and a real testament to their coaching, young kids, and especially that defensive core. I don't know what it would take to get Suter, but I assume it would be more then we could afford.... all those RFA's though, you never know with the way Nashville is headed.

Right now, I expect a puck moving dman who has potential but is yet to meet it (Liles fits the mold perfectly) a la Wideman. Suter just seems like too much of a polished product, and it's been a while since we were that lucky.

Being the pessimist I can be, I have a feeling I may even be disappointed with that expectation. Chia seems like he has a good handle on this teams needs and where we're at in our development, and honestly it wouldn't be a stretch to see him make at most a minor move (think Schaefer or Ward for someone of equal value that addresses a need). With so many teams in the buy now market, the price may be too steep to make a significant move without hurting the future, and I can see Chia saying no to that.
