I'm pulling for the Isles to get the 8 seed....just by one point over the Rangers.

Wang won't want the compliance buyout because the salary won't count against the cap.

He uses DiPietro's salary to reach the cap floor, even with DiPietro playing in the AHL.

I'm rooting for DiPietro. I just feel so bad for him.

I doubt it

I wonder if the Bruins are happier being in the 4th seed. A 1st round match against Toronto or Ottawa would be phenomenal.

New Jersey is in a playoff position and Clarkson is their leading goal scorer. He's not going anywhere even if he's a UFA. Unless the Devils have a terrible stretch of games in the next few weeks, he won't be going anywhere.

Those standings can change quickly. It could end up being the Rangers there too.

You always go for that #1 seed.

Opposite if it were me.

If he's out we are done. Save the picks and prospects.

In light of the injury to Kelly and now possibly Krejci I think Derek Roy might be a good target. Shoots left and would certainly add a scoring element to the third line when everyone is healthy. Can fill in the top six if necessary too

He's got to make a move if now, DK is out. Spooner up from R.I. and praying for Linkopings to bust before making a trade.

Yippee, and then being the road team potentially in the second and third series, no one in their right mind would prefer to be the 4th seed.

Nope, didn't you hear? These guys are just sitting on isle 5 at the grocery store. All you have to do is pick em up and get to the register. Oh and we're in luck, Chia is the only person shopping...



I wish I had the TSN Intermission report w/ McKenzie when he spoke about how he's heard that prices for players right now are astronomical and that GM's are having a tough time making deals.

So many teams are still in the race that the sellers market vs the buyers market is so lopsided that you will have to overpay for anything decent.


I haven't seen anyone say that Chia should do nothing (cept for the krejci situation).

That's a great mental image. Snipers on aisle two, puck-moving defensemen on aisle five...

Yeah, almost every team in the league is still in the hunt and you know that any GM is going to want the Bruins' top prospects just to start. If it was easy to just fill a hole they would have done so already.

Playing GM is like playing hockey - it's easy as pie on your living-room couch.

That's a great point, if Chia's looking to pick someone up that's just sitting around hoping the phone is going to ring his options are very limited. I haven't seen too many posts looking for the B's to re-sign Brian Rolston, or to give Jason Arnott his third try-out this year.

Without thinking too much about it, those are the first 2 options I could come up with as a stop-gap 3rd line C that wouldn't cost picks / prospects to acquire. I'd rather see them give Spooner a shot with the big club.

You can also shop online now. Hockeysfuture.com and they have a toll free number. 1 800 GRE-TZKY. I remember an interview with Parcells. I think when they traded for Bledsoe when he was at dallas. Talking about making a change to Romo. He says something like you can't just dial 1-800-quarterback. Have to develop.

Isn't it frustrating though to not do anything in the summer with free agency when I *assume* it's easier to to upgrade then try to upgrade during the season? Prices are too high.. I mean, did anyone other then Chiarelli think Bourque was a capable third line NHL'er?

ha ha..... it's so true.

If you go to any of the sites listing the trades since January, they are underwhelming to say the least. Most of the names I don't even recognize. Those that I do, have for the most part bombed in their new settings (Ponikarovsky, Gagne, etc.).

The only one that held any promise and I wish we'd been in on was Ryder, but:

1) We didn't have an Eric Cole type to send back.
2) Apparently Chia did not have the same incriminating photos on Niewendyck that Montreal did.

Well if Chia is gonna have to overpay he is gonna have to over pay this yr.He has two choices if thats the case then right?One would be over pay and have shot at the Cup.Or two would be not to and Bruins will not win Cup with team as is.Pretty simple. On positive side,there is still time left for few teams to slip and as it gets closer teams with U F A,s like Iginla will get a little more nervous .They will not want to keep him after deadline without extension signed.Lets keep waiting.Not long now one way or the other.

I read on ESPN(sorry no link, it was about two weeks ago) Chicago may buy out Hossa next year. Would anyone have interest in him? I know he has a long contract(I want to say until he is 42) and get's paid 8Mil plus, but any interest in him?
