So far Boston has signed three UFAs. All three filled much needed positions. Chara, without question is what Boston needs for the defense. They have Brad Stuart and Paul Mara, thanks to trades, who both can quaterback the powerplay. Savard was brought in to feed Murray the puck. Since Thornton was traded, Murray has basically lost his groove…. Savard was brought in to change that. And Donovan will play the wing with Axelsson and Primeau against other team’s top lines.
But what is left to be done? Well before we get to that, lets see what is already in place.

As I read with dismay the news Pronger will be stuck on a pond in Califonia (albeit on what’s shaping up to be a great team — but we’ll never see him in the East) I am reminded of my pet peeve about North American sporting rules.
Would be an interesting journeyman player (for the right price) that may help take our team from the O’Connell carnage along with our other pickups.
