Nope. Not raises. Total salary.

The Bruins have $7M in space with no goalies and five defensemen.

That's without Horton signed either (but with Savard on the books).

$7M in space with a hole in their top-6, bottom pair defenseman and two goaltender positions.

That's not much.

My prediction is that the Tim Thomas deal is a precursor to something a little more substantial with the Islanders. I know that's not a sexy roster to look at, but there is some talent there and a couple of guys who I think would really fit.

Some usual to unusual suspects: Jarome Iginla, Ryan Whitney (as well as Derek Smith or Lee Stempniak in Calgary and Laddy Smid in Edmonton). RJ Umberger in Columbus is interesting, as I think he'd fit well on that third (and is a playoff BEAST) BUT his contract is prohibiting and I don't know how we'd do it. Lauri Korpikoski is a player I've liked for a long time now. He'd be a perfect fit in Boston and is one of my prime targets. Karl Alzner in Washington and Cal Clutterbuck in Minnesota.

These are just a few names, of course.

I`ve been on the Clutterbuck train for some time now

Stanley cup contenders don't trade top 6 forwards. If Horton leaves at the end of the season for a big payday (5+mil on a multi year) at the end of the season, then so be it.

This will give the Bs enough cap room to make a huge move (possibly involving Horton in a 2-way or 3-way deal or possibly as a subsequent deal) at the deadline.

So, what do we think would happen if we move Horton?


Horton to ____________ for ____________ .



I am hoping it is something like Horton plus something to Anaheim for Perry.

Horton and McQuaid for Tanguay and Wideman.

with 11 Million dollars, they can not keep Horton, Rask, Ference, back up goalie, 7th Defenceman.. impossible

Horton needs to get traded for a young forward who has the potential to play in the top 6.... Horton for Forward 1.5 Million approx

Rask 5 Million
Khudobin 1 Million
Ference 2.5 Million
Forward 1.5 Million
Johnson .650

Total 10.65 Million

Even if you get rid of Ference 2.5 Million, and move up Johnson to number 6 and get a 7th defenceman at .650, you still only save 1.85 Million, still not enough to sign Horton.

You'd need to get rid of Ference and a Kelly to keep Horton and sign a 7th D man. That's a lot of leadership heading out the door to keep a 2 time concussed power forward. Too much risk in my opinion to keep Horton.

I wouldn't mind sending Horton and Kelly to Anaheim for Ryan, I'd do that and plug in Spooner with Pev's and Paille, and put Bourque on the 4th line.

I prefer Horton to Tanguay - and McQuaide brings toughness that Wideman can't

I've been saying this ... but he's some kinda golden boy for some bruins fans .

costing us a goal almost every game IF I was Quaider I'd be getting pissed at covering for him

I'd walk away in heartbeat a 5th or 6th defencemen is easy to find and I see no reason to spend 2.5 mil on a guy making that many mistakes

Great point. At 2.25 million I think Ference can go. He has been awful this year.

On the front end Horton at 4 million or Peverly at 3.25 million are the two likely choices to go.

I think the Bruins might even dangle Lucic at 6 million as well.

Ference has gone through similar short stretches like this one and come out of it to be a clutch performer, so I don't see Chiarelli moving a roster player unless that guy and the team are simultaneously mired in serious slumps.
