Bob Neumeier thinks that, unless Peter Chiarelli can pull off 'a blockbuster little deal,' the young 'uns are the Bruins' only hope now that they're in cap jail.

The Bruins are up against the salary cap wall, leaving their hands tied when it comes to their roster.

Bob Neumeier joined Arbella Early Edition with a suggestion in mind to help Peter Chiarelli.

"The young kids are going to have to come through," explained Neumeier. "Unless, you pull a blockbuster little deal. I have one in mind, that would be Mr. David Krejci because of this very important reason. He's going to make a boatload of money after next year and I wonder if the Bruins can afford to pay Krejci the going rate for what I think is a very fine player in the league."

"I don't think they are going to be able to pay Krejci next year. Cap room is a real problem here. This is a hard cap, this is not like baseball."
