Need an energy winger ASAP

I think the Caron and Pouliot experiemnt has become alittle dry. We need an energy winger who will bump and grind shift after shift and play on one of the top lines.

Here is a list:

Travis Moen
Steve downie
David Jones
Chuck Kobasew
Tom Kostopoulos
Kyle Wellwood
Tuuomu Ruutu (Injured right now but would be my favorite)

First four guys I would consider. For depth and for "right now". I wouldn't let those guys in the top 6, but I would surely send Caron to...somwhere...anywhere....to make room in the bottom 6.

I have to say, Kyle Wellwood is not a name that comes to mind when I hear "energy winger". Now if you had said "soft hands and soft belly", I would think of Kyle Wellwood.

No thanks to Steve Downie for the sole reason that he's a punk and I can't stand him.

Would love to see Kobasew back for a 3rd line role. There were rumors of him coming back to Boston at last years deadline.

Kobasew was pretty brutal with Colorado and Minnesota but maybe he would fit in again here.

I don't know how he's played in Providence this year but what about giving MacDermid a shot?

Maybe move Paille up to the 3rd line to make room and sit Caron.


Lucic - Krejci - Peverley
Marchand - Bergy - Sequin
Paille - Kelly - Pouliot
MacDermid - Campbell - Thornton

Clutterbuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I`ve seen Kobi on 2 occasions in the last few months and he`s looked very solid, always appreciated what he brought when healthy

I still think a guy like Andrei Kostitsyn would be a good fit.

27 years old.
Could be had for cheap
Final year of contract (3.25)
12 goals / 12 assists this year
Big body, not afraid of contact

Would be a decent fill in for injured Horton, then drop to
3rd line (for Poo) when Horts returns.

I think he's been screwed by the Habs. Has played on every
line. Never given much of a chance to gel with anyone. Under
the new coach, he's been a 3rd & 4th liner (as well as being a
healthy scratch a few times). He's playing fewer and fewer
minutes per game and is not happy.

Some interesting numbers on Kostitsyn:
- Averages a goal for every 56 minutes of ice time and a point
every 29

He has averaged less ice time than Moen (a guy lots of teams seem
to covet, yet has more goals, assists, GWG's and PP goals (and has
a much better shooting %)... Oddly enough, Moen & Kostitsyn are
tied with 75 hits each (Looch leads the B's forwards with 124 hits,
second is Thornton with 69).

he is playing a "Recci" like role, a much younger Rex of course in Colorado, with all due respect to the coaches there, not sure he`s being used properly in when and where he is being used, he`s probably one of their most consistent forwards when it comes to shift in and out effort, nothing has changed there for Chucky, his pt total is non existent but this thread asks for energy...he`s still got that

Well he used to score 20 goals every season for us. Can't hurt to have him back, especially if it means Caron going back to Prov or only filling in on the 4th line.

Pouliot and Caron don't really bother me so much as long as they aren't on the same line. I'm not ready to throw Benoit out with the wash just yet, and if - one way or another - the former first line gets a right wing up there and Pevs can come back to the third where he belongs, the team will look good going forward.

You guys calling for Cal Cluster**** need to explain to me why you think he'd be on the block for anything less than a massive overpayment.

I think this thread is more of a wishlist than any sort of insight into who is available... kinda like every other trade deadline thread on this website.

SB, what do you have against Bucky? I love the fact that he's willing to hit anything and everything. He kinda reminds me of an older wiser Marchand. No chance the Wild will trade him though. He's a God in Minnesota- right behind Koivu.

I wouldn't mind Kobasew coming back, or Ryan Jones out of Edmonton would be a nice spark plug as well. That guy is an Energizer bunny on skates.

Nothing against him at all... I like him a lot. That's why I don't think Minny will want to give him up... fan fave, very physical, a bit of scoring touch. I'd love to have on the B's, but he's approaching cult hero status in Minny (as you say)... it would take more than he's worth to pry him away.

I just like to call him Cal Cluster****. It's the 12-year-old boy just beneath the surface of every adult male coming out.

UMBURGER! But i think Bruins are gonna go big and get Nash,,He is a protypical Bruins big power forward and a guy that can finish,Be hard not to take stab at him on market<Bruins have assets to get it done too is my bet,

Still sounds tempting to me, even with overpaying a bit. Wanted him on the Bruins for a long time, he'd be such a perfect fit.
