I think I would have rather just kept Ryder.

He's not any kind of fit for what we need.

I don't mind that Gionta cried. Hockey players cry after playoff losses. But it's weird that Therrien made it a point to say that to the media. It's like your mom embarrassing you as a teenager.

According to reports out Switzerland, the Tampa Bay Lightning have signed Swiss League winger Reto Suri to a two-year contract.
The deal would reportedly start in 2014-15 because he wants one more season to develop overseas, which the Bolts apparently agreed to. Tampa has not confirmed the signing yet though. Suri recorded 14 goals and 25 points in 46 games with Zug this past campaign and he had had 13 points in 10 games for Switzerland at the IIHF World Championships.

Iginla has degenerated into a big slow guy that can shoot. So if your getting him you basically getting a variation on what Ryder was, a guy to finish off plays for you. He's better at that than Ryder but surprisingly worse at pushing play forward or defending. Ryder didn't help you there, Iginla is an active hindrance.

He's not a terrible idea for an acquisition. He's still got a fair bit of value as a PP shooter. But you should be paying for the player and not the name. Good chance somebody is going to pay for the name.

5 on 5, Iginla only scores a little bit more than Gionta these days and is light years behind on defense. I doubt he actually makes the team much better as a replacement.

I wouldn't call Iginla "big", in his prime he played physical but just average sized.

Eh, somewhat above average size and well known for his physical strength. Its a reasonable descriptor.

Guy can't skate anymore though. He's a goal scoring specialist these days, not a real top liner.

He can be a 60 point guy on a top line.

I wouldn't have a problem signing him for 2-3 years but I expect the cost would be 5.5-6 mil/year unless he takes a home team discount somewhere out west. I expect him to end up in Edmonton, a natural fit.

A 60 point guy sure if you contort your team around putting Jarome into a position to score, or if you have such brilliant centers that all you need out of your wingers is a guy to finish off plays. He can score but he'll also hurt your breakout, defensive zone efficiency and rush scoring.

That's more along the lines off what you can get out of a Ryder and it isn't going to be worth his price point.

Fillippula is similar to Ryder, not as good a scorer but better player, pretty one dimensional player, somebody will sign him at 4.5-5 mil cap hit...pass.

We can use Gallagher on the 2nd line and sign a guy like Torres or Cooke. We could even use Prust on the 3rd line if we have to.

I was thinking Clowe and Clarkson would cost a fortune, but the way Bickell is playing I think he will hit the market and HE will be the one getting crazy money instead of Clowe/Clarkson. Horton's also made himself some bucks at playoff time. Ryder and Iginla will also get good money. I'm not saying we'll get one of those guys, but I think their price may be lower than I first thought.

Was it just me or did anyone else watch hossa and couldnt believe how similar galchenyuk is to him, and this is hossa PASSED his prime

man he played a hell of a game, hossa seems a bit tougher but it APPEARS galchenyuk could be a bit more offensive minded

Hossa in Ottawa was not playing the same game, he was great tho but his game got more complete when he played in Detroit, imo.

Matt Larkin ‏@THNMattLarkin 1h If anyone doubts goaltending's importance in the playoffs for a second: top two save percentages belong to Rask (.942) and Crawford (.936).

I prefer Bruins' defense exactly because of the stay-at-home and defense-first system. They rarely give odd-men rushes or breakaways. They are almost always well-positioned, so you rarely see their players flopping about and lying desperately on the ice to stop someone, something that I saw last night with Hawks.

That said, I hope Hawks win.

The hawks have a great mix of skill, grit, experience, size, aggression, speed, forwards, Dmen and goalie.
The teams they faced earlier were always at a disadvantage. Toronto, in my mind, don't make the POs over a full year. In any event, a lot of young players on that team, Bruins were sleeping versus them, no reason for them to have needed so many games to win this.
The rangers struggled all season, they had no offense. If it weren't for The King, it would have been over in 4.
The pens, well seriously, they need to fix their goalie issue. If they had our fanbase, Shero would have been hated on so badly after his comments. I was the first one to be surprised how bad the Bruins made the pens look but they also couldn't buy a break. Every bounce seem to go Boston's way in that series.

The Hawks are a physical team. They are so skilled up front that people forget how rugged they actually are. Their compete level is irreproachable as well. If they force Boston to cut their defense bench like yesterday, the Bruins are gonna be very tired. Especially if the Hawks get the lucky bounces.

But the Hawks weren't lucky to win. At some point I think they were out shooting the Bruins 26-10.
Boston had a much easier road to the Cup finals, that's for sure. The weak east.

What range does he make sense for us assuming he plays a 2nd or 3rd line role at 15-16 minutes? 3.75-4 mil over 4-5 years max? Are we willing to go to 4.5 mil/year?

Most years a more offensive minded defense wins the cup, like LA, Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh.

Boston's defense is also helped by having a lot of good defensive forwards and a conservative system. If you put those 6 d-men playing for Edmonton Colorado or Florida they probably look closer to average. Much like the JM system made our defense look better in 2010.

I would disagree with this. IMO Filpulla is can do many things well, he has a pretty similar skillset to Plek. Not a great fit for the Habs, but should be worth quite a lot to some teams. He'd be a nice upgrade from Bozak for the Leafs.

I prefer a mix of stay at home and offensive defensemen, it's extremely evident that in playoff hockey it's far more valuable to have a team full of stay at home bruisers than puck moving guys though. And that's one of the reasons why the NHL is so broken, what is the point of having a regular season if the playoffs are going to be officiated in a completely different manner?

That's why I take a guy like Subban over Karlsson 10 times out of 10, like I've said many times in the past (even before this season). Subban is a guy that can dominate both sides of the ice while playing a physical brand of hockey, and come playoff time those are the guys you win with no if ands or buts.

It's another reason why I'm so high on a guy like Jarred Tinordi and I already identify him as a part of the main core of this team moving forward. These guys values just get multiplied this time of year. You won't win with 6 Andrei Markov's on the back end.
