I'm a little worried about what Chia's definition of a "star" is...could be referring to any top six forward or top 4 dman....the guy is always so vague when it comes to stuff like this...Joe Thornton? Kris Versteeg? Tomas Kaberle? Chris Chelios?
He said on that radio call in you can bet on a trade for sure.No way he moves that pick unless a stud comes back.My bet,Bruins are after kaberle,but I do not rule out a top forward either..Its gonna be agonizing waiting ,lol,,
why give up a potential lottery pick on bogo ........ certainly his stock has dropped a bit since being taken 3rd overall hasnt he played pretty ****** since getting injured (he does still have star potential)
please GODDDDDDDDD make it be something centered around kabby, c'mon chia you owe us one
Chiarelli has spent years developing this team with small acquisitons and moves that have added up. Now he has a chance to actually trade for a 'Star' (Dallas perhaps?!) and can make the move for the first time knowing the prospect pool and young core is in place.
One of the youngest teams in the NHL adding a star while Rask, Krejci, Lucic, Horton, Bergeron, Seguin, Knight, Colborne, Kampfer, Boychuk, Marchand, Wheeler all continue to develop and transition into their 'prime' years would be perfect.
I really hope he gets a 'star' and not a 'good player' for this 1st. It will also end the Leafs and Bruins hatred and we can go back to cheering against the Habs. Bruins and Habs fans have been getting along really well the last two seasons.
Imagine the amount of Bruins fans that would go back to cheering for the Leafs if this trade is made? Boston and Toronto fans would want the pick to get out of the lottery range if Boston moves it.
