[QUOTE]In Response to Re: TWO 1st round picks and you say WHAT PC!?!?!? : How can you be so certain? For the top 10 pick to matter, the other team needs to be awful and looking to rebuild. For it to be a homerun trade, that team needs to have a high quality player it is willing to move. That likely means not young, or at least a pending UFA they don't think they will resign. Said good player also has to meet the Bruins' needs. Since it is likely that a truely impactful player will take more than just the draft pick, it means that the bad team has to like some of the Bruins' prospects. Is there a match like that out there? That's a lot of things that have to go together.

Not really. Ryder's 4 millioin is gone next year, as is Savard's 5.
That's 9 million available just to slap down to re-up for a top tier player in the future.
This is what I mean about the Chia defenders. They don't accept the fact that Savard, a 1st Centerman, who is now off the books as totally free space, needs to be replaced somehow on the roster.
Nor do they think it's Chia responsibility as GM to replace a healthy Savard.
So, this means, you lose that player and you need to replace said player in some fashion.
Then it starts to look like another season of excuses from the Jacobs/Chia regime.
How on earth is this guy not dangling each 1st rd pick and pairing one of them as an offer
I would even argue, he could unload BOTH 1st rd picks if it meant scoring two fantastic future core players moving forward.
Are we are this team hasn't been to a Cup in 20 years and hasn't won one in
What is with people satisifed with the "we have these legendary prospects and picks, so let's sit on them" routine?
It's like a series of excuses and "yeah, buts" and then followed by how wonderful Chia is.
