This is low risk move that can not hurt in the least. He is a better player imo than what the flyers currently have on the bottom pair. they gave up nothing. It allows them to see how he plays until the deadline. He wets the bed your back where you started and try to find someone else. Dont see how anyone can really be upset by this move at all.

Montador has been really good.

Once cleared unconditional waivers, the Lightning were able to terminate his contract – making him an unrestricted free agent. The move relieved Tampa Bay of paying any team half of his $1.475 million contract if he was claimed on re-entry waivers.

Krajicek was due to become an unrestricted free agent this summer anyways.

Krajicek, 26, was in Philadelphia on Saturday for the Flyers’ game but did not play. He did, however, accompany the team on their charter flight to Calgary on Saturday night.

Fantastic, I'd go as far as to call him a pretty serviceable 6th defender.

There's very few if any players we could get who would undoubtedly change our fate

The Comcast site that covers the Bruins mentioned Aaron Ward.

http://www.csnne.com/pages/landing?A...17&feedID=3352

Quote:
Ward has told those around him he’s openly rooting for Boston to make a move for him at the trade deadline, and the 37-year-old badly wanted the B’s to claim him when he was put on waivers by Carolina back in December.

Ward was told by Carolina management he won’t be placed on re-entry waivers by the Hurricanes, and will instead be dealt by the March 3 trade deadline for nothing more than a nominal draft pick.

The only thing Ward would admit to CSNNE.com is that he’s decided he wants to play at least one more season next winter, and that Boston would be at the top of his NHL destinations if there’s mutual interest from B’s GM Peter Chiarelli.

San Jose, Detroit and Philly are also likely to be on Ward’s wish list of potential teams now that the carnage in Carolina has taken on that old hockey team smell, but Ward never wanted to leave Boston in the first place. Ward’s only planning on playing the one final season, and cant’ be looking for any more than $1.2-1.5 million in salary – a mere pittance for a defenseman sound enough to play on a top pairing and with enough skating ability to still be a top-four NHL defensemen.

It makes even more sense for the B’s to go after Ward prior to the March 3 trade deadline knowing they can resign him for short money in 2010-11 and simply plug him into the lineup for Chara’s final season under contract with the Bruins.

I think he can be a little better than that but not sure if he will get the chance. The only thing is he wont be playing with anyone specialand i doubt he gets bumped up unless he really impresses.

And it sucks. I see fatal flaws on this team that will keep it from the top of the mountain in both the short and long term. I really feel the only way to change that is for a change in the GM seat.

That said, I don't want them to lose and miss the playoffs. Unfortunately, the only way I get the change I feel is needed is to miss the playoffs.

I should drink more.

I agree, as long as you're a bitter drunk. It's fun laughing at your negativity.

Obvious question: was this move pulled off before or after OKT got gimpy today?

You should see me rant in the parking lot after a loss-and 7 or 8 beers.

After they lost to the Ducks, I was free entertainment for about 15 people.

Well one of the articles said that Krajicek was in Philly for the game but did not play so I guess it was in the works before.

The Tampa Bay board mentioned that Bob Clarke was at a home game recently (but Krajicek didn't play). Maybe Clarke dealt with Svoboda or was involved some way.

Probably.This is another example of Shooter not leaving himself any room to acquire anyone at the deadline because he cant manage the cap. The jones debacle is just so funny. Not one beat writer or anyone with any sense that i can remember even asked Shooter why he did it knwoing he was probably going to get claimed. think how much that money would usefull right now to acquire a decent player.

Definitely an upgrade over Bartulis or OKT.

I like Krajicek. Reminds me a lot of Bret Hedican in that he can flat out fly on the ice. He's not bad positionally either, but he's not a very physical player. He's also not afraid to rush with the puck. It's kind of a shame he's bounced around the way he has, but I blame that more on being initially misused by the organization that drafted him and then much was expected of him when he got to Vancouver. By the time he got to Tampa Bay, he had no idea what was expected of him. He's good for 18 minutes a night of ice time and he definitely won't hurt the blue line. As far as I'm concerned, Krajicek has officially solidified the number 5 spot.

Good number 6, hopefully he fits well with Bartulis.

He should be a good compliment to Parent once hes back
