Could it be ? No I mean seriously? How about marchand being t he leading scorer last year oh yea who was on that line. I see u coming Don't even try to blame marchand for erixsson woes.
Check brad stats - you want a trade him because he's starting slow. You insane? This guy is one of the main reasons we won the cup .
Hey marco...good post, you're exactly right. Marchand is one of the last I would consider moving off this roster. He's playing on 2/3 of a line right now, that affects everyone. He's more than earned as much time as he needs to get it going. You want to make a move for Yak, start with Campbell, Kelly or Boychuk. Leave Brad alone - he's the real deal, and I'm glad we have him in Boston.
I will say if the Edm. wants to trade Yakupov marchand will need to be in the deal for sure. Overall, The oilers need someone to take charge i don't think the ones mention above will be the one to do so neither is Marchand. Maybe kelly and boychuk, maybe throw in thornton he would be helpful keeping the kids in line, can start some conversation with Edm. mngt.. The oilers are more interested in trading Hemsky before Yakupov. The best thing though is boston is one of the top teams where as oilers are not, so the bruins are in the drivers seat if the two franchises decide to make a deal.
I don't know about that, they don't need forwards, I think they'd want an NHL proven defenseman.
I agree with you 100%.
Edm. and NYI are in desperate need of quality d men. Take a look at their goals agst.
