I don't get your obsession with Krejci. He had his 73 point season and now he's back down to earth at being about a 15-35 guy. I don't think he'll hit anywhere near 70 points if we got him unless he's on a line with Gaborik. I'd rather a player that makes our 2nd line better and gives us something at least close to a power forward in the lineup.

Hopefully wed get Wheeler to end this Zherdev nonsense.

Wheeler makes this team better. He might disappear from the score sheet from time to time, but he contributes in other areas.


Werek or Bourque and the 40th for Wheeler.

I'd be willing to bet Krejci is a 70 points + guy at least 6-7 times in his career. Add to that he's an excellent defensive player, his age and cap friendly deal, and he's one of the Bruins most valuable players bar none. You only need to see what happened to the B's in the POs when he went down.

Typical Lucic hate from some on here. He was injured most of this season, is barely of legal drinking age, and still managed to up his game in the POs again this season (look at his PO numbers in his career, hard not to love).

He also doesn't start making $4m until this coming season. Might end up being slight overpayment depending on his progression, but most B's fans are absolutely fine with his contract, and love him as a player.

I think they were counting on him to be a 20 goal, 40+ point player for them as well as bring other intangibles to the team (physical play, fighting, PKing, leadership)..... Right now his injuries and lack of production this past season are making the contract look pretty brutal....

I'm glad that out of two seasons in the NHL, we've determined the lesser of the two will be his typical production moving forward.

It's not the stats I'm really going of off, it's seeing him play and getting some feedback from bruins fans. If he ends up proving me wrong, good for him, I still think Wheeler's the better value here.

Workable deal.
[Black Wheeler and Alex Burmistrov] or [Vladimir Tarasenko]

Or insert whatever prospect you see going at 15th. I think I still take the deal with Wheeler but I really do like Tarasenko from what he sounds like.

I suppose if they are REALLY interested in someone and know they won't get to 15? I'm just speculating. This is the ONLY real scenario I can think of .

Well, interested 2 years ago doesn't mean interested now. NYR were so interested in Redden 2 years ago that they signed him to 5 years contract.

They wouldn't outside of breaking Wheeler's legs on the way out or some other cheeky shenanigan. But hey, more props to the Rangers if they can pull that deal off because Wheeler's a king amongst men.

I'd love to see Wheeler leave for NY if you guys were throwing Bourque our way. Seeing a Bourque on the Bruins again would thrill Boston. Chiarelli should have drafted the kid based on name alone.

They wouldn't. Realistically, and I'm guessing Ranger fans aren't going to be wild about it, but it would probably be based more around Wheeler + 32 overall for the 10th overall. Boston would probably have to add more to the deal, but Wheeler has more value than moving from 15 to 10.

Bourque was a 3rd rounder. Its a pretty fair asking price I would say given the Rangers need for a top 6 F

Would Boston be interested in Gilroy or too much cash going back?

Werek


To NYR:
15th Overall
Wheeler



Just spitballing, I still think more probably has to go to Boston.

I would love to see Wade Redden leave NY if a team were throwing Lyon Messier our way.

No thanks, I would keep the #10 and Werek. We need to stop taking other teams problems and stick to building our team through the draft.

I'd do in a heartbeat. I'm still curious about the Zipay blurb about Nathan Horton, and what Ranger had to say.

I would defintely make that trade, especially if we sign McDonagh or they believe that Sangs is ready to play in the Pros this year.

Grachev, Stepan, and Werek are all higher than him on our depth charts and we have Dubinsky, AA, and Christensen

If we trade for Wheeler, do we see him on the 2nd line with MZA and Anisimov? Does that mean Prospal comes back or not, cause MZA is going to be on the top 2 lines, same for Dubi, Gaborik, and Wheeler? Creates some interesting questions

We have no centers, who will pass this guy the puck!!!! If we get him and do not get a center, he will be a 10-15 goal player at best.

We are a couple years away from having a legit shot, so there's plenty of time to sign/trade/develop a center. What the team looks like 2 years from now is far more important than what it looks like 2 months from now.
