    Phil Kessel

    I for one would rather see Kessel go for picks rather than players, and before anyone brings in the draft history lets not forget who was running the ship and why he know longer is.This scouting staff is regarded as one of the best in the league.

    I think the Bruins picked better over the same frame.
    In 06 2 B players made the lineup same year since Chia took over none have done so since.
    Back to the point none of the players could have stepped in the next year and replaced Kessel's 36 goals nor can they replace them this year.

    The B's need to win now before the salary cap starts to discombobulate them and draft picks will not put humpty back together again in this cup run.

    Re: Phil Kessel

    You're right.

    If we get a good player back (Dubinsky, Kaberle), we're in the same problem where we need cap room to fit him in.

    That's why we need draft picks... GOOD draft picks. Either let him walk to Toronto for their '09 1st pick (possible lottery... Taylor Hall!!), 2nd and 3rd pick or get a higher 1st round pick plus a highly touted prospect like Colin Wilson, Chris Kreider or Nick Petrecki?
