Not at all, he's a very nice 3rd liner.

I am also surprised at the cost of Montador... he's great depth and for number 4 dman. Great cheap trade for Boston...

[QUOTE=cska78;18340242]Have you seen Hnidy this year? He was our best d-man last year in the beginning of the Montreal series, he is rock solid in third pairing, deserves every minute spent on the ice.[/QUOTE]

Wow...I must be watching a different Hnidy lately, because the guy that I've been watching doesn't look like this at all. After a great start to the year this year, he has been downright atrocious the past 15 games or so. Love his grit, love his toughness, but he's just not skilled at all. I'd say the B's got their money's worth out of him though since they gave up Bochumpski.

I love this trade. Noki has been brutal for us this year and I'm really surprised that we got something decent for him.

Maybe Garth Snow deserves more respect than he gets.
Ben Walter will never be an NHL talent. His success is the crux of your stance that Snow fleeced the Bruins and your little stat that he's a PPG player in the AHL is completely irrelevant since his only chance at ever being a top-9 forward is on a pathetic team.

When becoming a Dominic Moore v2.0 is a stretch, you're not an NHL talent.

That is an incredibly stupid way of evaluating this trade.

In the KHL?

You have to kidding that he's a very nice 3rd liner. He's a nice 4th liner leaving out the word very though. He may someday become a nice 3rd liner but I highly doubt it.
