He's a very good prospect. Yes. I'm not disagreeing. Save your little sarcasm smileys, but I think the term blue-chip is completely overused. Koko very well could be better than anyone in the top 5 last year, but I personally don't think he's untouchable, which a blue-chip prospect would be.

Also, "you're" is the contraction of "you are".

Zero point zero percent chance that Gaborik nets you Hamilton regardless of how much salary they eat.

My point still being is the term "BLUECHIP" is overused and over applied to teams prospects.

Koko is a VERY GOOD PROSPECT and could be a VERY GOOD PRO PLAYER.

IMO they definitely need to replace Ference. No way would I go into the playoffs having that disaster back there. They should get Boyle.

We disagree maybe on other prospects we'd agree but not this one .... Blue chips are not the Crosby's and RNH ect .. Most of them would be an automatic in my books, you could call them a blue chip but they are extremely high end picks that usually means they make there team the first year..

I completely agree with you, and Koko was my favorite Bruins prospect once he was drafted.

He's not a blue-chip prospect. He's a very good prospect with a lot of potential, but the term "blue-chip" prospect gets thrown around too much, just like "franchise player" does.

No idea if the Bruins are interested, but this Yotes fan would like to get rid of Sullivan - no personal offense to the guy, he's a hard worker and still has some skills, but he's been a disappointment for us this season as our Whitney replacement. He could probably give some boost to Boston's PP, provided they use him more effectively than the Yotes have so far this season (manning the halfwall instead of playing on the point).

How about Ryan Whitney+Belanger(assuming he can heal in time) for 3rd, Svedberg+Trotman, I don't think Hemsky is available

Svedberg isn't available. He will be backing up Rask next year barring some type of overpayment in the Whitney+Hemsky(yuck) for Svedberg+4th type of deal.

At this point you are arguing semantics and using strange winky faces in your response.

Bluechip prospects are extremely high end picks, and usually only apply to a handful of prospects in the league at a time.

Just so I know what you think, how many other B's prospects are Bluechippers in your book?

Koko is far from garbarge, but as you also said he's expendable for the right players in return. If you want to call him a bluechip prospect, go ahead. It makes you happy. It makes you add different smilie faces to each post. Whatever. But do yourself a favor and google "What is a bluechip prospect" (actually I did it for you), and see what it says.

My point still is people seem to throw around terms "bluechip" and "Franchise" player like every team has them in spades. It doesn't lessen the value or quality of the player not calling him a bluechip prospect. It really boils down to semantics, and this conversation is silly at this point. We agree to the fact that neither of us would move Koko for a less than adequate return. But he is NOT a blue chip prospect by the pure definition of it.

The Bruins would not give Hamilton for a one year rental like Gaborik no matter if he came free.

The rangers would have to give them something like Del Zotto back.

I still stand behind what I said this doesn't tell me he isn't .... Your telling me he isn't

There close to automatics doesn't say they always are doesn't even say how good they become ?
Is Koko a highly touted blue chip No .. never once compared him to Hall or Seguin

you've been saying blue chips is used loosely ... this is your argument and that's fine maybe it is ..

I'd say lots of teams could argue there higher end prospect ... could or should be a blue chip ..this is why you haven't said any names...

IMO, the best thing Chiarelli should do: stand pat.

The prices are very high and isn't worth it.

Your dreams of getting Koko is over !! unless its Cammi or 1 of your top D
You seriously value Cammalleri over Glencross? I guess name recognition is important to you. Glencross is twice the player at half the price.

Disagree. Standing pat would be stupid when you clearly have scoring issues. Look for players that could help that would come cheaper. Guys like Stempniak, Mueller, Ryan Jones ect.

Pominville and Boyle would be great additions. Iginla is the "sexier" name, but im not convinced he's any better than Pominville right now.

If Chia stands pat Pandolfo will be one injury away from the line up and that has losing written all over it. Chia needs to at least get somebody who can score for the 3rd line.

He also needs a defenseman but not sure he can get one until summer.
