    If we move Savard to long term IR, or buy him out, the Bruins will have 10 million in cap space.

    It will come down to if Rask wants to be a dick or not. I was shocked at the draft choices for the Bruins. I think more right wingers are needed, not defense men.

    Kept the cap down and still kept the core.
    Bowman knows what he's doing.

    Looking it over, it seems the Kings made the boldest moves. May hurt them in the future.....but looks interesting for now.

    The Kings will be good for a while. Lots of talent out there.

    I think he has done pretty well. But that's not a surprise considering who his dad and trusted advisor are. As much as it made me sad when Scotty left the Wings, I was happy for him to be able to go work with his son.

    It's cool that family still means something in hockey.

    I couldn't agree more. Maybe that's why it's the only one of the big four sports I actually like.

    I think the deal made sense. They got a reliable forward that plays into the Bruins system well and several prospects. They also freed up about 9 million in cap space. That isn't even including putting Savard on long term IR. that will give them about 13 million in cap space I believe.

    Seguin has been known to party hard and show up late to practice wearing the same clothes as the night before. I think this trade make sense. They traded high risk upside potential for something reliable.

    After just reading the Herald Sports, i agree it is looking like a good move. We'll see... Happy 4th, fellow NHL fans!

    Happy 4'th.

    I am not so sure I want to see Peverly on the road. But Seguin has been so so....he never bought into Claude's system and on another team he will be a center. Maybe he played the hand this way knowing he could get in a system he liked, or maybe he was lazy...not sure. While he did not work in Boston, I have no doubt he will be a star in another system. He has assets...there is no doubt about that.

    I will be able to assess this trade better when the AHL starts up again and I can see the kids play.

    Word is Horton is on the move too...but they did not say where on the radio.

    Columbus is going to be insane next year. Horton isn't going to play until December because of surgery on his shoulder. That team is becoming stacked with top end players really quickly. Horton deal is a huge gamble in my opinion. 7 years at 35 million for a guy who has 2 concussions and has been injured 2 out of the three last years.

    Yep, and they have a strong goalie who can keep them in games against tough teams. Bummer we lost the Alfredsson sweeps. Maybe we get Inigla now for too much money.

    I have a feeling we will be seeing Ryder in black and gold again. We need another right winger and he fits the bill. I was hoping for Clarkson, but I am also hoping to win the lottery.

    So a few months late but Iginla is now on the B's.

    And for all the Bruins fans, check out this video of Jack calling game 7 VS Toronto, the guy really is as hyped up as he sounds:

    Matt

    Fucking

    Cooke


    :kboom






    Ok, I get it. Our coach and GM know him from PIT. With Heatley injured and unable to be bought out, they had to drop a top-six guy (turned out to be Setoguchi for a draft pick) and pick up an 3rd line guy to replace Clutterbuck.

    When you look at it that way (Heater vs. Seto, Cooke vs. Clutter) it is harder to argue with.

    But seriously, Matt Cooke? It is a good thing there aren't many players left who played against him regularly when he was in Vcvr, those were nasty games.
