Fri, 1 Mar 2013|
Joe Haggerty lists the chances of the Bruins acquiring certain players via trade
Lot of deals being made already in the national hockey I guess that makes sense when you considered this shortened season and teams. You know competing for playoff spots in and really run out of time how are your third of the way through or beyond for some teams let's start with -- number one target here Jarome -- -- the forefront. Yeah he does now I actually think the Bruins are very interested Michael Ryder in the sense I got. The day the trade went down as they were very surprising was coming back to Boston rather than Montreal -- Juli was basically speechless. When I asked him about it on the road which I thought was very revealing. I'll -- as far as the -- goes he goes the top publicity he always was the top of the list. 35 year old as superstar kind of cash today as the office ability and size party plays that big bad team. Bruins style hockey I think in every way he's left -- who I think in every way he would really fit what they're looking for I got a complete third line. On a really good team and then move up if they have injuries but. Prices the thing right now I mean I think at this point Calgary will not deal him. If they do they wanna branch in return because they wanna be able to show the fans of the Flames this is the treasure -- that we god -- So it might be a little while on -- -- on Danielle Robinson -- -- -- on Thursday night at the -- I don't think it's gonna happen with him because I would just keeps playing gritty game. And they stay in the playoffs there in the middle of things right now it's gonna take a lot. I don't think -- well and I gave the scenario to you earlier. I would say I was a little bit out of it but in the race and they deal him say the Bruins. And going home winning streak in the eighth seed played the Bruins the one seed now fortunately for the for the Bruins and Ottawa that GM is gonna get destroyed in Ottawa making that trade Bryan Murray you be strong up. Not gonna happen and he's not gonna waive his no trade lost their way out of it. I'm an deviate from the rundown of moral from Dallas he's dynamic. You think there's a lot of interest your -- from the gather is and I think that somebody they've asked the bodies in the last year of his -- makes 3.5 four somewhere in there is also left wing so he fits the profile 61200. Pounds twenty of the thirty Eagles -- -- we -- the size the as the offensive ability. And it looks like Dallas is willing to wheel and deal here after the Ryder deal so. I would look for that when it's kinda under the radar a lot of people haven't mentioned I'd like -- -- -- scripted Alley and I am crazy like that Briere obviously. The connection there Philadelphia and we know throw him from that conversation yet they did Shirley went down watch the Penguins in the flyers I think that's what you discussed as well as. I was one for the tango bottom six guided the Bruins are also interested in. As far as Briere goes I think as well document these single that he's got a bunch of kids these rays in Philly doesn't want to uproot them during the season once again he has the power with no trade. I don't think god it's lastly Alex Kennedy obviously it's. Yeah he's another one at the bottom six guy but also capable of you twin Eagles scoring that you be a nice fit in the third line. He's a heart and soul kind of player I don't earlier in the season ray -- was very critical of him. As far as side they needed more out of him and they weren't getting it so that's another guy I think Sharon was watching that Penguins flyers game when he was down there scouting. And guy you didn't mention that's also on that list is Stephen -- from the Florida Panthers. I don't think he'd be a great fit just because he's always played Florida that's a warning sign for a team that's -- Stanley Cup expectations but then again. And workouts of that would Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell that it. Did not thanks.
