John is 80 years young. Been a member of this site since near its inception and has witnessed first hand things like me at 54 have only read about in regard to the Bruins.

He deserves respect and not sarcasm.

You mean there's someone older than me.

BRUINS players without a NTC that normall play: Lucic, Marchand, Seguin, Campbell, Paille, Bourque, Thornton, Ference, McQuaid, Rask, Khudobin and Hamilton.

Those with modified NTC: Krejci and Peverley but modification doesn't kick in until Oct 2013, Seidenberg and Boychuck can be moved/traded now.

All this per CapGeek.

IMO we don't need one but if the right guy comes cheap enough.................

A "rental" player (i.e. a UFA on an expiring contract) is someone who is usually traded for picks/prospects, not roster players. See Kaberle, Thomas.

You know, after thinking about a rental, and possible trades,
I think I'd want Chia to look at 1st liner or top end 2nd liner, in
their prime, with 2 or 3 more years left on a good contract.
Look at teams looking to rebuild.

Put this player with Pevs and Kelly.

Use some prospects, and draft picks, and if need be some of the 3rd/4th liners
as trade chips.

I just hate the idea of using the best prospects for a rental.
Most of the time the rental does not pay off. I know Kaberle did pay off,
but he didn't cost much anyway.

Perverley still had a year to go on his Thrashers contract when he was obtained by the Bruins; he would not have been a UFA until summer 2012. Hence, he was not a "rental." The Bruins re-signed him a year early, as they have a habit of doing (Krejci, Bergeron, Chara all re-signed before their contracts ran out).

http://www.capgeek.com/player/345

They Bruins also had to trade roster players to clear cap space at the time, mostly to accommodate Kaberle, as they were up against it. They don't have that problem this year:

Other than Kaberle, "rentals" are guys like Recchi, (who ended up happily turning into a mainstay, which happens occasionally) who went for Matt Lashoff, Martins Karsums and a second-round draft pick. Or if you're looking at plug-ins that can help in case of injury down the stretch/in the playoffs, players like Brian Rolston and Mike Mottau for Yannick Riendeau and Marc Cantin.

This team will not win a Cup as currently construed. They will add a couple pieces without major subtractions Imo.

Look what a minor deal like Ponikarovsky can do for a team.
