I think the Bruins made a good acquisition when they got Jiri Slegr from the Canucks. In him they got a steady, experienced defenseman who can pass and shoot on the powerplay. I am not sure that Gonchar would make a huge difference in Boston. If Samsonov is traded I want a player that makes a BIG difference.
So if Toronto want him – be my guest. I’d rather go for Ron Francis and Brian Leetch at trading deadline.]]>
I agree Boston needs help at forward. I think one winger and one d-man would make them a much better team. Unfortunately, Boston has a few UFAs next year as well. Big ones at that… Murray and Rolston to name two. Considering the Bruins track record with UFAs, I hope they move a few players to get something before they end up with nothing as usual.
I also agree NJ would be a “bad” fit for Gonchar. Especially if Stevens returns. They need a forward more then another d-man.
Jillson may surprise you, mik. With the right mentor, I think he could reach all-star status.
Wings always do!!]]>
