Why would you want to tinker with the NHL's best 4th line ????

Anyone else feel that for the good teams in the NHL the regular season is pretty much just like a test drive?

Home ice advantage doesn't mean anything in hockey....and the road team wins Game 7 more than the home team does. The "upsets" happen so often that the outcome of the series is more like a toss up. Last year it was a #8 seed vs. a #6 seed for the Final.

So basically all that matters is to finish in the Top 8 and roll the dice.

I agree. He will get paid like he is always a 50 goal, 98 point player when that is a clear outlier. 22 Pts higher than his 2nd best season. Followed it up with a 60 Pt season and a very slow start this year.

I don't see how he takes less than Parise money since he can only get 8 years at most. I wouldn't want to pay him that for end of prime/past his prime years. I certainly wouldn't give up assets mid season for either a rental or to pay him that money.

Assuming his slow start this year is also an outlier on the downside; he is still one of the best players in the league though. ~30 G, 70 Pts every year puts him as a top 20 forward.

i think Paille is our best option right now on the third line. even though we lost the game he played on that line i think it was the third lines best game. i would never replace Paille with Kassian on that line though. Kassian is intriguing and if we ever got that guy it would have to be as the 13th forward. he simply isn't good enough to play as the 12th forward on a team that contends for the cup, especially considering how much Julien uses his fourth line.

colorado is a team that is falling fast due to injuries and they will most definitely be sellers. one guy i absolutely love on that team and think would be a great fit for the third line LW spot is Jamie McGinn. he is fast, young, kills penalties, has solid size and uses it, and has skill. he is off to a slow start but he potted 20 goals last year and is set to make only 1.75 million next season. I think this kid was born to be a Bruin and i'd love to see him here. he isn't flashy and it wouldn't be a big move but he is the type of guy i could see PC grabbing. i think he would really add something to our third line

At what time tomorrow do we confirm that Matt Kassian is a Canadien?

Bruins should offer the 30th place team a 7th to pick up Kassian...he can meet the team in Buffalo and kick the **** out of Scott.

I think I'll cheer for the habs next time they play Buffalo. They haven't had a player with balls since the Dave Manson and Scott Thornton days.

Dreger said on NHL insider that Iginla has a list of 10 or fewer teams that he'd ok a trade to if Calgary asked and people around him feel like this is the year he gets traded.

I actually think this is terrible news. Boston's best bet was that the list was about 3. 10 teams = huge bidding war that PC isn't getting himself in, and another contender is going to have Iginla to help them out, possibly an Eastern contender. Rather he stay in Calgary if his list is that sized (I get that there's an or fewer there, but 5-10 teams still equals way too much competition for his services).

Well.. of those 10 (or fewer) teams.. those teams would have to want him. And by that I mean, willing to trade away assets for what may just be a rental.
Then, if they are a willing team, they'd have to have decent prospects
Then of course they'd have to have the cap space

So even of that list of however many teams, it still gets whittled down a bit.

I'm putting my name on the list for not wanting Iginla. I want a potential top 4 dman with some skill. I think that's the second biggest issue with our power play (coaching being #1), and I'm plenty happy with our forwards. This team is stacked, and any "weakness" lies in the skill level/speed of the blueline.

And before anyone suggests I don't like the guy, I'm simply not in favor of giving up anywhere close to what it'll take to get Iginla.

I disagree. I don't see a Dman as the reason for a weak PP. Don't get me wrong there are extremely mobile DMen who move the puck on the PP but certain forwards can do that and take up that role.
What we really need is, and I'm sorry I must say this because I know we talk about it sometimes ad nauseum is PP QB regardless of position.

As usual, great post.

Bad news indeed...

#1, Spooner, PLUS is what the price will be with ten teams in it.... No thanks.

I doubt we get anything more than a 3rd line replacement at the deadline.

Now my clammoring for Milan hejduk might be a bit more relevant. He won't have iginlas price tag, he will improve the 3rd line and pp and brings veteran leadership. He's on the decline but if he's on a contender who knows? He might just muster up 3-4 more months of past performance. He was a perennial 40 goal scorer in the league at one time, playing in Sakic and forsbergs shadow

Agreed. More consistent offense from the 3rd line is all Boston needs to win another Cup. Krejci and Marchand aren't going to be able to bail them out every single night.

yep, that third line gets an upgrade and becomes a threat to score and everyone else playing to their potential is all we need. i wouldn't pick against them.
