    Bruins need Yandle if not Kaberle

    We have brutal PP players on the point. Ray Bourque is truly missed since he has been gone. Our PP was respectable with him dancing around the point

    Guys like Hunwick, Chara, Seidenberg, Boychuk, Bergeron (dumb move) are not effective. The passes are not thought out properly, soft and are more like the crisis slingshot variety. PC should be in talks to try to pry Yandle away from Phoenix. If not i don't think Kaberle will be hard to obtain and could easily take a combo of Hamill and Kampfer/Bartowski. 

    A good pp is crucial for a team to be a great team vs a so so team. Past oilers, Penguins, Bruins, Current Washington, Chicago teams have amazing PP's

    Bruins forwards i think are ok its just the point guys are brutal.

    Kaberle is not a bad D. Especially effective on the PP and available via a trade

    Defense is not our problem, its having a guy at the point that can help score points.

    Yandle isn't leaving Phoenix.  You might as well list Doughty or Keith.

    Last summer, didn't a lot of people here say that Seidenberg was going to be the key?

    Seidenberg is not a PP specialist. He is a PK specialist

    If you want a PP specialist sign M-A Bergeron . He's about as reliable as Kaberle defensively and has a cannon for a shot . Likely be able to sign him for league minimum .

    MAB! Is a bum & his shot is no where near Boychuks! Whether his hand is 100% or not doesn't matter. He's not being used on the PP, so what makes you think MAB would be used? CJ is turning into a clown! And he's making this team that has the makings & chemistry to be a true contender into a bunch of clowns too! Lifeless & gutless!

    Thank God Alexandrov's in the pipeline.  Hopefully he'll be NHL ready by next year.

    Once again, the Bruins are still looking for a "puck carrying" defenseman - aka skilled for offense. Hardest thing to find in hockey outside the draft.

    Why is Hunwick on the PP?  He adds NOTHING!  Put Boychuk with his bomb or Siedenberg out there.

    Agree with NAS. Yandle won't be traded. Unless there's an offer to replace him in a 3 team deal. For instance if Boston was offering Ryder & Wheeler to LA- LA was offering Johnson & Simmonds to Phoenix- Then have Whitney & Yandle to Boston. I'm not saying this as a trade proposal. It's an example of the only way the Yotes would part with their #1 defenseman. They'd need an immediate replacement.

    He's not a specialist at all.  He's a defenseman.  He plays defense.

    Bruins really need a Mike Green, Joni piktanen type of guy right about now. Wideman was suppose to be that guy for us but he just wasn't all there in his own end. Wideman on the PP has been silently missed imo

    Who else could we try to trade for??

    Mike Green is the #1 biggest problem in Washington.  He's a joke of a defenseman.  He makes Hunwick look like Doug Harvey.

    My only point about MAB is that if you want a PP " specialist " then he fits the bill . He would cost the B's nothing . As far as MAB being a good defenceman that is another thing .

    MAB is a bum! Hence the reason he's not playing anywhere! His only speciality is not being being able to stay in the NHL because he's a B.U.M! He would not be an upgrade for anything on this team! If he was anything SPECIAL! He'd already be playing somewhere! PC has to make a deal & a coaching change!

    He might not be the best at his end but there would not be one team in the nhl who would not want him on their team. His scoring abilities more than makeup his deficiencies

    And how did his scoring help the Caps last spring?

    What are you going to do when Halak was stopping everything? Mike Green is a good D

    Mike Green is not a good defenseman.  He's a good fourth forward who lines up behind the play.  I'm not sure how many times you've watched the Caps, or paid attention to how Green plays his "position", but you won't find a good hockey mind that will agree that Mike Green is a good defenseman.

    He sure does rack up the points, but when it comes to keep the pucks out of the Caps net, he's not much help.  I would honestly say he's worse at defense than Hunwick is.  For $5.25/yr, I would say there are many GMs who would spend their money elsewhere.

    Enough already with Kaberle. If this guy was as good as everyone makes him out to be he would not be on the trading block 3 times a year.

    I agree  , contrary to what B.Burke thinks , Kaberle is not worth a top six forward or any high draft pick . If you could get him for a 3rd or 4th rounder then maybe .

    Kivak? Kaberle is on the block 3 or 4 x's a year because he's one of the few assets the Leafs have to deal! I think Kaberle would be great on the B's PP, but what BB is wanting is off the wall. That's why he hasn't gone anywhere! Kaberle on a decent team would be great on the PP & would certainly help. BB is over valuing his worth though.

    If PC can get Yandle I do it also, but not a shot has a point it is just a pipedream.
