Yeah, those bottom six guys had NOTHING to do with the Bruins winning the Stanley Cup.






The Bruins just need those elite, top-six guys.

I would say that there is a good chance that Horton will return next year, by all accounts he was close this year, but the Burins didn't want to risk it so they shut him down. If the cap goes up to 70M and they figure out something to do with Thomas, there will be lots of room for Iginla.
I wonder where this number is coming from. I just don't see a cap that high with the new CBA. Maybe Dom or Bill can help us with this one.

Not to Arty. She approves of anything and everything he does!

Good for her too, if that's what she wants to do. I prefer to be objective and call each move as I see it, but I'm fine with pom pom waivers if they're happy doing it. I'll still call them out on it though.

I agree, I'd be hesitant to go 3M for him. But it comes down to if letting him walk and replacing him with a cheaper guy makes the team better or not. If it doesn't, then I think they have to pay him.

Of course he does. Which is why I've never done so.

Typical straw man, hyperbolic excuse of using the cup to try and win every argument. Good times. Good times.

Does that mean I should throw the first round exit this year to a team they were supposed to crush in your face as an end all to this?

It's already been said that the cap will be 70.3M for next season. The CBA might change that, but that will be the operating number beginning July 1. It might go down after the CBA is done, but I'd be shocked if it were lower than this past year's number(just a guess)

These signings should confirm that Chia's top 9 forward will be Travis Moen

$2.75M is fair, IMO. he probably wants 4 years at over $3M. we'll see.

That number came from Bobby Mac. Basically, if all things were to remain the same, the revenue the league generated this year would yield a $70.3m cap next season.

Of course, no one really knows how the new CBA will shake out. Maybe they change the cap formula to lower the percentages. Maybe there are rollbacks. Maybe they leave the cap formula alone in order to get other concessions like term limits. Nothing's certain right now.

Bruins have their one cup due to the greatest collective team effort (from the GM on down) I have ever seen and three chokes under Chiarelli so far.

He's a top 5 GM, no doubt, and to some beyond criticism. Will be interesting to see if he adds anyone of any substance ..... We can add the Conn Smythe winner to Reechi, Ryder and Kaberle as players not here anymore from that incredible cup team...

Without being replaced too...yet for some reason, we keep being told that the team which lost in the first round this year won the cup....

That would be an organizational reputation that would not be helpful in recruiting/retention negotiations.

I'm guessing. (Now that Söderberg's announced his intention to stay with Linköping another season. )

Kelly will cash in on the one 20 goal season he'll have in his career. I like the guy and want to keep him, but he's getting paid for numbers he can't be expected to have consistently at this point in his career.

Seguin (he was on that team but had only 2 contributing games) replaced Ryder and Tuukka is replacing Thomas

Hamilton is replacing Kaberle Corvo tried to last year

Reckingball was not replaced

Good news. Kelly's a real glue guy. I thought he'd cash in and return to Ottawa as a vet/team leader. Campbell's got to know that Boston respects his game enougjh to keep him in the line up...a new team might not have the same faith.

Where does that put the competition for a spot- Caron v Knight? Pouliot v himself?

Fortunately, that doesn't describe the Bruins.

Chiarelli is smahter than probably 80% of the posters here when it comes to the Bruins, managing the cap, and making moves- and he knows the team he probably will put out in October will have many of the same players was on an epic 21-2-1 run when a few problems arose that should not be there next year. This team during that run might just hold their own against the vaunted 8th seed Kings in a seven game series.
