    Packers: Rodgers’ Chances of Returning to GB in Jeopardy

    Their 1st round pick from only a year ago is a sacrificial lamb? Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, Mahomes all sat (part of) that first year and led their teams to the playoffs in year 2. Depending on return, it’s perhaps lateral this year with the cap hit but it moves them forward next season, if...

    2021-22 Goalie

    Very good point. I guess, between the playoffs and a couple games this year, he can get ugly at times. Edit: and I had to watch that awful Washington game! You’re right that we do need to watch the larger sample and if it stays good, as Providence and his early stint for the Bruins shows...

    2021-22 Goalie

    Halak and Rask contracts are both up after this season. Swayman has played well in 9 games this year. Vladar has been mediocre in 4 games. Booth is available for the expansion draft while Keyser looks ready for seasoning in the AHL. In a perfect world, the Bruins could sign Rask to a 1 year...

    Taylor Hall for 2nd Rd Pick to the Bruins

    The Bruins acquired Taylor Hall for a 2nd round pick and Anders Bjork. They also received Curtis Lazar who I am less familiar with but was a 1st round pick in 2013 and has become a more consistent bottom 6 player over the past couple years. I like the trade. The Bruins needed to keep their...

    2021 Trade Deadline

    I’m going to start a thread. Hall has point per game upside and is a perfect fit given that they already have a #1 center, wing and D on the team. Are they great? Nope. But they’re pretty good and have a chance.

    2021 Trade Deadline

    Your valuations are very helpful. The guts of my proposal is to swap Debrusk for Hall (not necessarily 1:1). And then not re-sign Hall before the expansion draft. (Therefore holding onto a young D) If he’s so great for us, then we lose a D and sign him. If not, we tell him our offer and wait...

    2021 Trade Deadline

    Friedman mentions the Bruins on Hall... If they trade Debrusk, can’t they protect 4D in the expansion draft? Could be worth it for the right player, someone like Hall could be an addition for this year and next with the expansion draft allowing him to come back afterward. Debrusk and a second...

    Bruins 2021 Season Thread

    At this point, I’d rather keep the defense intact and redo the forwards after (or before!) the draft. So 4/4 forwards/defensemen protected for me. It can be argued that losing either Zboril OR Lauzon is better than Frederic or Debrusk as we have more depth a D. Basically the Bruins have to...

    Goal Scoring Woes

    Historically, Pastrnak and Krejci haven’t been as great together as you would expect. It’s dumb that they have to break up the best line in hockey but if the team can’t start scoring, perhaps they should try Marchand with Krejci and Bergy with Pasta. Marchand was effective last year (2 years...

    Bruins Prospect News and Notes

    I’ve been impressed by Swayman’s stats from Maine and also seeing him in person at college a couple years ago. Is be a legit #1 prospect? If so, backup next year and be the guy in 22’-23’ type timeline?

    Bruins 2021 Season Thread

    I think you’re getting to the problem. Our prospects aren’t even close to getting it done for Eichel. But that also means that the Bruins have no one in the pipeline to help Pasta as Bergeron and Krejci regress. I do agree with everyone, swapping Pasta for Eichel is rearranging deck chairs but...

    Bruins 2021 Season Thread

    I mostly agree and wouldn’t add much of value. But something like an extra player or 2nd tier prospect to sweeten the pot a bit. That’s where it’s interesting to me. Pasta IS the better player. But, to me, centers can have such a large impact. So, to get a young potential possibly elite...

    Bruins 2021 Season Thread

    Please forgive me for what I am about to type. What if the Bruins DID trade the best wing in the league for Eichel? Correct me if I’m wrong on any of these facts: -Bergeron, the #1 center is 36 years old this summer -The #2 center is 35 and hurt (again) -Charlie McAvoy is becoming a top 10...

    Bruins 2021 Season Thread

    From reading here, and with Carlo already on the team, isn’t Lauzon’s skillset replaceable? Zboril would have the rarer skillset. Still, I guess I can watch him and see over the whole season. On the other hand, maybe you offer someone like Carlo to Seattle for a draft pick? If I recall, Las...

    Bruins 2021 Season Thread

    Thanks @cshea always appreciate your Bruins updates. I look forward to watching more of the games in coming months. This past year has been so messed up. You’d think with work from home there would be more time for sports but for me it has been the opposite.
