No thank you, I'll keep Blake. Sucks for a Yotes fan I'm sure but he really has found a good home here in Boston and I would be extremely upset as a Bruins fan if they traded him this year. You don't trade Calder candidates who just chose to sign with your team over umpteen suitors the same year they signed. If at all.

I can't get a read on Morris but if he was cheap I'd be interested, mostly because he's a righty and he's got some high end history. Then again I never see him play these days and his stats aren't that impressive.

Where is the top 4 dman in that offer? I see a guy who can't get playing time on a much worse team, a guy who can't make the major league roster of a much worse team and a prospect who wouldn't help at all this year.

But all that is kind of beside the point since many of us think the B's problem the last few games is not enough goals, not too many goals allowed. Simply put Bergeron helps the team win much more than 2 guys with no value and a rookie who won't play until next year at the earliest.

Of all the ideas passed around in this thread, I definitely like the idea of Robidas the best.

Dallas fans, would Lashoff and Karsums get the deal done?


My thinking is Dallas would love to stock up on youth, with both players on two way contracts so the Stars' can send them down if need be for cap reasons.

Stephane Robidas is a 6th or 7th type of defenseman who is a grinder. He is kinda like Shane Hnidy but a little better. He is being honoured this year at the All Star game as a replacement for a injuryed defenseman.
Not sure I'd give up much for him. Not sure if he would push this team over the top either.
Boston needs an impact defenseman. Someone who can play 20 plus minutes and help with the offense.

I think he's a little better than that, but I do wonder where all this Robidas chatter is getting it's legs. He's decent defensively, and only averages just less than 20 points a year. I'm not sure he supplants any of the guys that Boston currently has in their top 4, as I don't see him as a drastic upgrade over guys like Ferrence, Ward, Stuart, or Hunwick when they are all healthy. Personally, I think the D is fine if they are healthy. I'd rather the Bruins make a splash with a forward this year so that they can get back to being a team with 3 scoring lines and an experienced 4th line (Yelle and Thornton both with cups, hopefully Axe on LW).

I'd take Robidas on the B's in a heartbeat. He's a solid contributor, a 3-4 kinda guy. AND he's a righty...

Chara- Robidas
Ference- Wideman
Hunwick- Ward

But I think that it could be just as important to find a replacement for Marco Sturm

As a Stars fan I'm willing to give up Robidas. Even though he's +9 on our team and could probably score more points if he was a part of the Bruins' system.

It all depends on what Boston is willing to give.

Too bad bergeron probably won't help the Bruins this year, either.

And Wade Redden gets paid like a top 4 defenseman. Does he count?

I'm willing to bet Bergeron is back in the lineup the first week back from the all star break. He's feeling good, he's been practicing, as well as travelling with the team. This past concussion was no where near as severe as last years.

Hmm...

Mark Stuart/Vlad Sobotka and a 3rd or 4th?

I havent seen many Robidas proposals so I'm very unsure of his value. Sorry if I'm way off base here

Robidas would be a nice pickup for the Bruins.

I would Do it in a Heart Beat. St. Pierre is Good, He has never Been given a real chance. Hear He Would Be Great.

There was a Bruins fan who proposed Lashoff and Karsums... I would take this deal straight up. I don't know much about these prospects but they seem like they could be promising contributors in the future.

Although, I doubt Boston does this.

That was me. I agree, there is probably a good chance Boston doesn't do this, namely for the fact that they think highly of Lashoff, where I'm not so high on him. We have a few other prospect d-men like Bodnarchuk and Boychuk who will need a look soon (like the next year or so), so personally I think it's time to find Lashoff a place where he can be given a fresh start.

Karsums is a player I like - big, strong on the puck, has a good shot - but you have to give value in order to receive it, and this guy deserves a shot somewhere.

Some other posters have bashed Robidas, saying he's a 6th-7th defenceman. I guess those people don't see much of him, because he was just named to the all star game to replace the injured Lidstrom. He might not have the upside like Niskanen, but he's a darn good d-man.

Those people that don't see much of him are called Dallas Stars fans. And did not you see that thread? Everyone is mystified by the choice to send him to the All-Star game.

I'd rather have Neids. He'd probably come a bit cheaper and is a UFA.

Have you seen him play this year? He's big, he's quick, he can handle big speedy forwards. He did an amazing job on Ovechkin a few days ago.

He's the only reason Alexandre Picard looks like a decent d-man, he was the only plus player on our team before this week (now a plus 10) has 25 points in 36 games and is averaging almost 24 minutes a game and many of those games he's getting close to 26. He'll get a first rounder.

You do realize that Boston's 1st is akin to a high 2nd, right?

Get real. It's a fair price to pay considering that you wouldn't have to gut the farm or send any players back.

You're not getting a 1st from Boston for him... That's for sure.

Boston's 1st is a 1st... It's not a 2nd.
