^These are the posts that annoy me on this board. WHO is "ripping Chia" for not making deals? Other than the usual suspect(s), show me who is crying that Chia didnt beat Shero to nab Morrow or Murray? Infact, MOST here are ok with Chia not biting as of yet. I see very level-headed Bruins fans in these threads for the most part. It's odd balls like you who create a sheet-storm out of nothing.

The one is conditional on him re-signing according to Pens press release so a little better.

The thing is they have a couple of decent goaltender prospects but they lack puck moving D prospects. Pittsburgh is probably a better match than us.

I'm with you.

Two good, need-specific moves by Shero that didn't come at a future-crippling cost.

Jay Feaster is also the flames GM. If anyone can screw up trading Jarome Iginla, it's him.

Okay, I see where you are coming from. If they are looking for a puck mover, then Pitt is definitely a better fit. I just think Subban gives them their best chance at having a legitimate goaltender and that might be something they jump at. Banking on Kari Ramo isn't exactly a brilliant idea...he got lit up in the NHL AND AHL.

The moves are reactionary and drastic. If that's what Shero's plan is, fine. I'm just glad he's not the GM of the team I cheer for.
Reactionary to what exactly? Pittsburgh is on a 12-game win streak. He knew the holes he wanted to plug and he filled them with the best players available. And seriously what did he give up? Nothing off the roster, one good defense prospect when he has several more in the system, one low 2nd round pick which high probability amounts to a career AHLer, and the other one is on a condition that Murray plays well enough to resign him. I don't see anything drastic there.

Me too. Murray is slow as a snail but he addressed what they needed while in the process screwing everybody else setting the market way before the deadline

Reactionary in response to a startling lack of defense exemplified in last year's playoffs and in several games this year. 12 game win streak is nice, yes. I don't know if you'll find many Pittsburgh fans secure with their defense come playoff time.

Drastic because in my opinion, Doug Murray for 2 seconds is an overpayment.

IMO Morrow and Murray were not very good this year, IMO The pens get them by their reputation not by their actual*play. myabe they can turn their play around with the pens but I'm not sold on their move.

Both were dreadful overpayments, and that takes deadline inflation into context. You can pat Shero and his staff on the back for the drafting and trading that helped them accumulate those assets, but they turned around and wasted them. Morrow has averaging just about a shot per game, that's pathetic, and Murray can't skate. Good chance Pitt used assets to get worse.

I want something like the Kaberle deal for Iginla anything over that I believe will be an overpayment.

Blue chip prospect (or so we thought of colbourne)
1st
conditional 2nd
(Throw in something like Cunningham/Camper) Who will be career ahlers

on the bright side, the Murray deal suggests to me that Clowe could also be had for picks and/or prospects. Clowe isn't exactly lighting it up but he'd be a good fit for this team and a huge upgrade over Pandolfo. I could totally live with getting Clowe if it turns out that Iginla is just not feasible.

I wouldn't have claimed him. That's how much I dislike his game currently, so you can imagine how I'd feel about 2 seconds, even if one is conditional.

The second pick being conditional moves the trade into not being too terrible. It's a late second for a playoff run with a guy who is physical (if nothing else). The second one is only given up if they can sign him to a contract that they feel is a good enough to lose a second for so they're not taking a horrible cap hit in future years if they do re-sign him. I still think it's quite an overpayment, he just isn't worth a pick in the 50s to me but they didn't lose anything crucial.

I'm pretty sure Shero was the B's top choice back then, and he has the same number of Cup wins as Chiarelli. The Bruins wouldn't be bad off with either one. The market is what it is this year. This is Pittsburgh's year to go for it. They couldn't come away from the deadline empty handed so they paid the price.

I assume you'll be ripping Chia next week when the B's are minus a couple of high picks and a prospect or two that you didn't want to give up?

This team in my opinion needs new blood.

At this point I think Chia (or perhaps in reality fans-the whole concept of "untouchables" hasn't really been confirmed by Chia) is trying to hold on to too much.

Sometimes to get a worthwhile piece you have to trade a good prospect. I think it is fine to try to protect certain prospects, but IMO if you start declaring your roster players and half your prospects as untouchable, you don't have anything left to trade-or at least that anyone would want.

Not really sure who Chia is going to acquire, but I am tired of the bargain bin pick ups.

There's a better chance of Alfie getting hurt than there is of him being traded.

As are most moves at the deadline. It's why I always say the time to make a move is the off season. That being said, what this shows is Shero's willingness to make a bold move and go for it. He could easily stand pat and wait for Malkin to get healthy and roll with what he's currently got, but he's not. He's making changes. Adding in players who fill specific needs that the team currently lacks. Smart move. It also shows the players that he's willing to do what's needed to win right now, and that he views them as a legit contender.
