agree but we need stars all over the lineup, cap be dammed

I was looking at the Sens Bad News Bears like lineup and thought, wow, even if that team went 42-0 if it was our team we couldn't handle having so many nonstars....we'd atleast have Alfredsson though

I been reading blurbs around how the Leafs are the baddest boys around, but I'm still trying to do my best Sam Spade and investigate to find out who they are....we play then next week so hopefully they will identify themselves

Why the need to be defensive and then be nasty to another poster?

Good thing nobody ever calls you on your many errors and never-happening signings and trades.
Hmmmmm....

Peter Mueller from the Panthers would be someone I hope Chia at least asks about.

Rocking some serious flow right there. No one on the Bruins comes close. Quiader maybe when he was rocking his mullet, too bad he shaved it.

So when someone says I said something I never said even in a condescending way , I can't defend myself?

First I apologize to you and everyone else that English isn't my first language. Heck, for the majority of my adult life it wasn't even my second language (and I'm probably old enough to be your father - maybe even grandfather).

Second, the only trade that I was adamant about that was going to happen was Marco Sturm to LA. The only signings I was adamant about that were going to happen were Bergeron/Chara extensions, Boychuck extensions and the Campbell extension. Oh and Carter to Columbus

Thirdly, you have to realize that conversations between GM's take place daily. Some get leaked out, the majority don't. And with the vast majority of those conversations, a deal does NOT happen. Of course, there is the rare instance that it does. It doesn't change the fact that those conversations happen. So tell me, what are the never-happening signings and trades that I said were going to happen that didn't? And remember, there is a difference between : "What I think might happen" and what "will happen"

As for Ryan O'Reilly, I never brought the conversation to HF. Never even thought about bringing it here, because I know what it turns into. Someone caught my tweet and brought it over here without actually copying it, but posting what they believe it said, and I corrected it immediately. I even quoted my tweet that said: Ryan O'Reilly said he "would like to one day play for the Bruins" and I have corrected that a few times in this thread.

I have also stated several times that I don't think the deal happens. It doesn't change the fact that 1) he wants to play for the Bruins "one day" and 2) that a conversation between Chia/Sherman took place.

So, now that I have stated my position yet once again, should we file that under "never-happening trades"?

Enjoy the popcorn Wally

Am I the only one who thinks Colorado might be a good relocation candidate? QC return?

I like O Rielly. I think he gets a stupid return. If he doesn't we should be in on it.

BUt Hamilton/Marchand are names I laugh at their GM over.


Subban, a 1st, and Kelly or a couple more prospects if Kelly won't waive are what I offer.

Kelly won't waive, not a valuable piece for the Avalanche if they did. Probable that the Bruins offer would need to be Spooner/Koko, Peverley, Subban/1st. That's spitballing.

Knowing the way the chia operates it wouldn't surprise me to see them trade for someone like Parros and move Paille to lw on the 3 line

Paille-Kelly-Peaverly
Thorton-Campbell-Parros

well there's no denying that there is a sense of "old boys club" on this board, and a certain tendency to disregard or even mock any opinion or any player that doesn't scream "Bruins hockey". The old members will stick up for each other. I can see why new posters would feel left out.


But that's off topic. I don't want them to trade for O'Reilly. First because I think he will cost significant assets thatgo beyond prospects that don't really hurt to lose like a 1st or Koko. I'd guess they'd ask for Marchand. Number two, because we would have again 15 million + tied up in centers, who would have to play with mediocre wingers. And that's assuming that they want Seguin to stay on the wing for the next 5 years. Bergy and Krejci aren't crosby and Malkin, they can't play with little help from the wings and still produce elite offense. Not to mention there's only so much ice time to give out.

I've seen the Marchand thing a couple of times. It doesn't add up at all. Because they're having trouble coming to agreement, they're going to be able to request a player with greater current production, who is older, but signed?

It's a lot like us asking for Perry in the summer of 09 to be honest.

His past concussions are a pause for concern, especially when considering Horton is in the same boat. But there's no denying the talent... the kid is a good player who needs to catch a break and get a couple of injury free seasons under his belt to get his career back on the upswing.

I would guess they value O'Reilly higher than Marchand, but regardless... what do we have to offer in futures, compared to other teams? Ottawa for example could easily offer Zibanejad or Silfverberg, and I think they are higher rated prospects than Koko or Spooner. So we'd have to offer quantity of futures, while others would be able to offer quality. I'd see the avs going for the latter. Thus, if we really wanted him we'd have to offer roster players the way I see it... and Marchand is the only one who makes sense.

one player that would be more in line of a "small solution" would be Stempniak of the flames, I think I'd rather have him than say Antropov. He's signed one more year at 2.5m though, so who knows if they wanna make that commitment.

No big deal. It just seems like some posters are fair game when it comes to slinging insults and others, for some reason, are untouchable. No need to disrespect anyone whether it be Shoe or anyone else. All I got to say.

What's with the thin skin all of a sudden?
Share all he wants there was no need to go off on anyone.

The fact that someones join date dictates what they can and can't say is truly laughable. That Shoe joined four years before OOG makes it even more of a joke. I checked the list of rules and I couldn't find where it says "Poster who joined before X date is allowed to belittle poster who joined after X date."

You're a recent one with a third to half your posts falling into the trolling territory. Most people don't know if you are being serious. How can they if you are picking this argument?

I have had unpopular opinions and disagreements with most of the posters on the forum and I sort of think you are trolling right now.

I'd cut it out because while I don't care and have anything better to do than respond to you some of the more knowledgeable people may feel different.

still dreaming of one of the McGinn brothers for the third line....i got all excited when i heard PC was talking to the flyers, love the McGinn brothers and i think Tye is gonna be a player. maybe throw in Rinaldo too...

more realistically, Morrow would be a good fit, as would Clowe. with Clowe's slow start, scoring wise, maybe he becomes available? i feel like any playoff team would want him, might be pricey.

Clowe would be the best 3rd line fit, imo.

We seriously have lost our bite on the fourth line and I'd like to think Chiarelli talking to Philly means he's looking to address that situation.

Clowe is going no where and has already gone bonkers twice this year I believe. I like him but I do not want.

This team needs help scoring and another big body
