Milbury: 'Briere is definitely worth a look for the Bruins'
Thu, 28 Feb 2013|
Mike Milbury joins Felger and Mazz to discuss whether he sees the Bruins make a move, and how Danny Briere would fit in with the Bruins.
Mike under the Bruins they happy senators here tonight obviously. From what I think you're hearing coming out of there are a lot. Over the last few days is this this. This idea that they really are not playing well now well but I just think not playing well. I've played their potential. And yet they're winning these games do you feel like you're playing great. I think they're playing solidly. That I hope that they're at their you know. There is seen as you know they they sat back against the Islanders for awhile but they've done that the -- they took some offensive. Punches and then just managed to do what they need to do which is. Protect the lead they always seem to be able to come back when they when they need to come back but he in the way they play is not as -- not. Terribly wide open so they can conserve energy rather play indifference and then they counterpunch when they need to. So I think they're playing just fine I. I think they can play better but I don't like offensively and then get a couple guys you know Kelly finally got on the board with a luck of the Irish you know the day you are really needs to score more goals and and a it's seems to be -- appears to use me move it -- out about it different rinks and different areas sort but I do believe that he looked. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Almost have to make a move to sort of justify how good it is and what I mean by that is you know. They're gonna be and there are a top three top five particularly to going to be knocking at the door and it's maybe one of those classic cases where. If you're that good you got to make sure that you -- up every hole. And explore every option. To get through that and end at breakthrough and be number one not just number one but we do that during that place where they're able to have to make a move. No I don't think they have to make a move I have to naked if they have to expect the you always want to explore making moves to make your team better you know they could use navy right now looks like a little more offense out of that certain line or. Perhaps something on the power play they'll make it work for you gotta make he's got a team here for another 45 years it's going to be solid team of it's if it stays together. College Soccer and runs like we need more solid week in particular I don't know you're you're exactly right that there's a chance -- to do it again. There's that. Duck boat parade and and I know they want to so I think that that's what he's doing he's out there you know is -- the Bruins were where whispered about and again -- deals -- been whispered about what Alfredsson deals with the worst sort of boat with. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think he he has scored he can be very frustrating on the defensive end he can make some really dumb plays and but he has scored some great an important playoff goals were every day and so I think you definitely worth a look. He's but for one I'm gathering. He's got a no -- our current clawed his contract and there's not really much hope. To pry him loose shoot you went through a divorce a while back it's -- -- over there I don't think he wants to move in the middle of the season. I think he made it clear to some media members indicated that's the way he was thinking. That's probably the way it's gonna play out but I think he'd be. An awfully nice compliment to to what this Bruins clubhouse right now. Beyond him -- -- is there anybody you look at out there and go he's perfect. For the bronze. I don't know visited there aren't perfect players put their players that I. But the guys that I've been looking at the guys we just talked about guys you can bring some offensive points to this. -- and can do it. It whether they play on the first line as a third line. And that's what I do look forward I think you're gonna find that there are people like that out there who they are right now they don't know for sure what. -- -- -- going to be Alfredsson not the way Ottawa keeps on winning and then played as well they have. I don't know ought to get alive a little cautious on and he's been less than. He is. -- competitors self from the last couple years and sometimes you gotta be careful what you can -- to get a guy like him you're gonna have to give up what -- And I'm not sure -- work that you're able these these. Deadline deals -- self promote for the most part rather than paying off. That that history will prove that. Mike does it does what or questionable and ask him but it always wanted us and we've been asked a million times but I've never asked Hewitt and I -- because. -- to -- drew a deep interest in the news. Recently again there was a story today although that may be -- bogus. But he's backed out in the minors but what I've always wanted to ask is. What happened this guy what what why he never turned into the player that everybody thought he would. Well first of all that I think he he was on track. Early on to be that player when we kept them somewhat cautiously in the minors wasn't brought up and put in a big role right away you. Maybe Olympic team he played an all star game was was tracking that way and then I think he got. More than he should have gotten contractually. And I think he got spoiled along the way I think he deserves from. Blame because he. Never really trained away years of player should train at all when -- looking back it looked like Arnold Schwarzenegger as part of well goalie goes. And and that type of bear some responsibility for that -- -- Not getting him in the line and we talked about this were overmatched and you've got to get a little -- earlier works -- real tough later. But also in fairness to him he just. He's one of those guys that just kept going down with the injury after injury I don't think he was. Taken any of them it just wasn't a lot like that somehow. Wound up susceptible on the things that. To put a damper on his career.
