I don't see Ottawa parting with Alfredsson. They're still in the run and it's their captain. I would see Iginla in B's uniform before Alfredsson.

About that Max Talbot rumor. He would be a great fit for Boston too. Might takes Chris Kelly spot until he comes back?

There's one player no ones talking about that could be a great pickup for the playoffs and it's Ryan Malone. Tampa Bay isn't going anywhere and could get some youth or picks for him.

Malone has NMC that ends after this season, becomes limited after that. Didn't waive to LA some years ago.

Tampa and Boston are also div. rivals starting next year, may limit trade options.

The Bruins should try for Brenden Morrow. I've seen him succeed at times on the ice through sheer determination. A few years ago Dallas was lagging in a game and he skated a long, long way to beat an icing call...the effort inspired his team.

He's obviously not in his peak years but he would probably be a good influence on the team. He plays with uncommon intensity.

He's a very old and abused body for a 34 years old, Chia can do much better then that.

Max Talbot is a very good target- Hendricks of course, those bottom 6 guys that have some skills energy and will put a lot of stress on the opposing defensemen in a 7 game series.

I remember many months ago, the Capitals played a first round series last year and their forwards put a lot of welts on that first round opponent; their guys had speed and really took the body.

give me some of that and save the half dozen guys Boston believes they have in their system who project long term- also very strong draft- I'd rather keep both first and second

If and when the senators fade I'd love to see Chia make a run at Colin Greening. Not sure how they feel about him in Ottawa (think he was a healthy scratch for a bit), but he'd fit right in on the bottom two lines in Boston. If they could get him for spare parts he'd be a good soldier for a playoff push.

Greening has really missed Spezza this year. He is a solid citizen, and he`s got decent size, but he was a pseudo first liner (by default) last year. Not going to the net like he was last year & looks a little lost.

To your point; I think his spot will be challenged with another new wave coming here in Ottawa by next year. (Mark Stone, Stefan Noesen)

As per your suggestion, when speaking of Sens, I think Erik Condra would be the better fit for the 3rd or 4th line. Not as big, but very efficient.

Doubt the Sens would want the Bruins to have either though.

I don't mind Condra at all but, like DKH is pushing for above, Boston needs some size and speed on the bottom 6 to grind down opposing defenses over the course of a playoff series. Given the role, Greening could do that in a smart way for Boston IMO.

Think it's fine if they send Pandolfo or MacDermid to Providence

That isn't how it works. Their contract still counts toward the 50 contract limit.
I haven't counted, but I know they're were close to 50.

I think they're at 48... 50, but Koko and Subban slide etc?

I've always liked him. I think Soderberg might be able to contribute to the Bruins in a similar way. Who knows?

looks like 47. 49 but Subban and Koko are likely not counting. Dougie likely does because he went over 10 games.

and that type of player cuts it on this board?

I describe him as an aggressive soft player, he plays like he is mixed up. More than I am anyways.

Just saw on the leafs board that Versteeg is now out for the season. One less option on the trade deadline market. The Panthers really can't catch a break. They won't even get a chance to re coup pieces for Weiss and now if they were considering moving Versteeg that option is gone as well.

Islanders working on extensions for Streit, Boyes, Visnovsky and Nabakov.

Wonder what's going to happen to DiPietro if Nabokov is signed long term. Back up in Brooklyn or Top seed in Bridgeport? Lots of $$$$$$$$$$ for those roles.

He's probably gonna be an amnesty buy-out, no?

I doubt the isles sign 37 yr old Nabby longterm. Poulin's been erratic this season, Nilson is battling some injury that the secretive Isles are mum about and although Koskinen's having a solid season, it's in some Finnish league. Isles imo aren't ready to give up on the three, but don't feel any are ready to take over as the #1.

A DiPietro buyout would be $1.5m per. Wang wants DiPietro's contract to help him reach the cap floor and roughly $3.6m of it does, while he's in the AHL.

As long as Wang is majority owner, I don't see DiPietro being bought out until Wang's in Brooklyn, with more revenue coming in.If Wang sells the whole team or the majority share, a new owner may prefer an immediate buyout.

Was really hoping Streit would pull a Dennis Lemieux from Slapshot and call up Garth Snow demanding "trade me right ****ing now" and hang up. Then Chiarelli would call and snatch him up.
