And, as for Looch, it just seems that too often, as goes Horton, so goes Looch. Unfortunately.

Not advocating sell the farm for Iginla, either, at this point. I'm calling this season as "done" if I'm Chia in that department. Fight til the end, blah, blah, surely. But, one has to be able to read the tea leaves, too. And right now, Pitt is one powerful brew.
PITT is WAAAAYYYY over rated in these parts. I haven't seen the Bruins play this bad in over 2 years and they still lost by a goal each game (and should have won other than choking.) PITT is FAR from the powerhouse they are portrayed to be, hence why they have done nothing in the playoffs since 2008-2009. Every year this board gets duped.

Saw an article on yahoo saying Chia offered Kochlachev and a 2nd for Morrow, would have been nice to have him but at that price it would only be one piece away from Jarome Iginla who I think would be better suited to the Bruins current needs.

I agree. If true, then I think Iginla will be a Bruin (hopefully soon). If he's willing to trade Koko and a 2nd, throw in a 1st and another D prospect and that should be one of the better packages available. If that doesn't get Iginla for whatever reason, a variation of it should be able to get another decent player... all in all, hoping this is true because that would give me confidence Bruins are picking up a good player in the next week.

We are going through a rough stretch. All teams do.

I think we have the necessary pieces to make a long run as the team currently stands granted a few things happen.

1. Lucic and Horton need to TRY. I would like them to be productive players, and they likely will be. But for now I want them to TRY.

2. The "Yeti" decides to come over play for us. This has been discussed to death. But if he comes I think our team is better instantly and he makes the 3rd line that much better.

3. I really want to see Krug up here.

I do NOT want to see us trade for Iginla or any other pure rental player. If Iginla comes for cheap GOOD! If not I dont want him.

Not sure about that... in 09-10 they won a round in the play-offs despite "being tired just like the '11 Bruins" after winning a Cup... 10-11 they didn't have Crosby OR Malkin in their first round 7 game loss ...and last year they choked in the first round just like our beloved...

When healthy they are easily the best team in the East. Doesn't mean we can't beat em 7 game series, but not sure you could find many people who would say the bruins are better.

I think CJ would be smart to break those two up though, I just don't agree with Rainone's trade proposal of moving 2 thirds of your current first line, 2 thirds of your current third line, and 2 of your current top 6 defensemen. The deadline isn't time to make whole sale changes like that. That team would get rolled because there's no time to develop chemistry and have clearly defined roles.

That being said, I'm fine if they want to make a move, just not 6 players off the current roster.
I agree about Lucic. When he is on his game,I love what he brings to the team,a nice combination of toughness and some skill.However,I think he is much more suited to 3rd line duty.A guy who will hustle,hit everything in sight and occasionally scrap.I don't think Milan is a legitimite 30 goal scorer,I would be quite happy to get 20 goals out of him while he played on the 3rd line.

I agree about Pittsburgh being the best team at the moment.Things can turn around pretty fast though and with the right moves at the deadline the Bruins could beat them in the playoffs.

If I'm a Pitt fan, Fleury has me worried constantly. When he's off.....he's awful

That's pretty much how I see him as well. No need to change his game and make him something he's not. Let the guy run around hitting people, and use his physicality to create chances. The goals will take care of themselves.

He's been fine in a 1st line role for almost 4 years now. His problem this year is he's gotten pass happy, and the cynic in me thinks it's because his buddy is in a contract year. His SOG/game are down and his S% is nearly half of his career (which will regress eventually). But he's had some opportunities the past few games where he's dished between the circles when he should be shooting and crashing.

Joe Haggerty ‏@HackswithHaggs 6m
Hearing B's are in on other potential top 6 forward options aside from Iginla. Jaromir Jagr? Marty St. Louis? Maybe Calgary price too high

It's Haggs and he says nothing specific but I guess it's something.

I'd love for Boston to acquire St. Louis and Streit for not much more than the Pens just overpaid for Morrow and Murray.

I suppose this is the all purpose trade thread for now, so probably the best place to comment. If the 2013 version of Doug Murray is worth two 2nd round picks, then buyer beware for the Bruins. I've always admired Murray's ability to be an effective and tough to play against defenseman despite his limited mobility, but he's been noticeably bad in the Sharks games I've watched this year. I think he's still fine as a bottom pairing guy, but that seems like a steep price for a depth defenseman at best. Maybe I'm crazy.

You'd still get the negative nancies finding something to complain about. This place is getting ridiculously frustrating to deal with. They actually think players like Murray and Morrow are assets. Murray sucks. Morrow is paid like a top 6 and produces .37 ppg.

Really, really ridiculous.

If that were to happen, I'd be ecstatic. If PC could pull off those moves, I'd bow down at his genius...

St Louis would cost a bunch I would think... Subban, Spooner and a 1st more then likely...he is exactly what we need though.

If the price is right I think CHi makes a trade otherwise how does giving away the future help this team for an old player? I am hoping the change up in lines does create some spark. Horton and Lucici need to be planted in front of the net with skill guys circling in and getting pucks to the net.

I also think this team has been snake bitten overall in the scoring department. I thought in several games we have had chances but the darn puck is not finding the back of the net. Seguin in Pitt for example IMHO should have had a hat trick.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure Streit is on the market, I keep hearing they're trying to extend him, although the skeptic in me thinks that if Streit is asking for 3/10 and Snow hasn't already given it to him, it's not getting done because that's dirt cheap for a captain with Streit's skill level.

I wonder what a realistic package for St. Louis looks like though. You'd have to figure it's more than Iginla because it's not a rental. But how much more?

Alert the presses!! I think we just agreed for the first time

I'd jump for joy if this team added St. Louis let alone Streit. Talk about instantly changing the PP dynamic!
