Bruins very likely to make a deadline move

The Boston Herald is reporting that Peter Chiarelli is very likely to swing a deadline move to try to improve the Bruins.

It is noted that Chiarelli indicated at a recent news conference that “he has a relatively short list of players that he is looking at” and that he is looking to make a move that will have the least impact on the present team.

HTR note …It is highly speculated that some of the names that he is looking at include Erik Cole and Keith Tkachuk. Other players however could include Dough Weight and Bill Guerin, both of who are likely to be moved.

    I think Antropov would look GREAT in a Bruins uniform.  Think of Nik centering a line with Lucic and Wheeler…WOW thats a big line that will tire the other team and PROBABLY injure them in the process lol (very important in playoffs).

    To Boston: Nik Antropov
    To Toronto: 1st round pick OR Joe Colborne, mid round pick

    ok so i'm a bruins fan from the toronto area and I see a lot of toronto games so with saying that I would hate to see antropov in the black and gold, he is not what people are making him out to be.

  3. FrankTheTank3388 says:

    I honestly think they should go for Pronger. Maybe something like this:

    To ANA: Lashoff or Stuart, Coelborne, 1st round
    To BOS: Pronger

    I know Pronger has an other year on his deal but they could hopefully trade him before the draft to a team looking for him to free up the cap space and they could probably move their draft pick up.

    Antropov is more likely to end up in either Chicago or Columbus.

    I would love to see antropov go to the B's for one their roster players. Then the Panthers could see them off in the first round. 4-2 series

  6. KingCanada says:

    Are u going to base that on anything or are u just sticking with that statement…

  7. KingCanada says:

    Ya he will go to whoever is the most desperate…and one can assume itll probably be Colombus.  They were previously interested in both him and Kubina about a month ago so there definatly is something backing that up.

  8. LeafsNation91 says:

    I think Chicago is the best place for him, imagine a line with Kane, Toews and Antropov, Antropov is one of the best net presences in the league, and with all the shots and passes Kane and Toews do, he would work with them.

  9. LeafsNation91 says:

    Does this seem fair:

    Chicago:
    Antropov
    Toronto:
    Skille

    He's a legit 25-30 goal man. Scored 26 in 72 games last year. Has scored 20 in (roughly) 55 games this year. Only concern would be injuries, but he's been healthy so far this year, missed only 7 games to injury last year (3 to suspension), and was healthy in the latter half of the season prior, so its been a while since his injuries. And the root of his time missed early in his career was the rehabilitation of his knees which were both operated on due to two seperate instances. That's in the past so I don't think he will be as prone to injury for the remainder of his career.

  11. mojo19 says:

    I have to agree, having Antropov in front of the net for the Hawks power play would really add another element that they need. For all their skill the Hawks could use a big body like Nik.

  12. mojo19 says:

    Ya looks good. The rumour i heard from a friend of mine was this:

    Antropov to Chicago for a 1st and Akim Aliu (former 2nd round pick in 2007).

    Legit 25-30 goal man????
    Lets take a look at his career stats:
    1999/0: 12 
    2000/1:  6
    2001/2:  1
    2002/3: 16
    2003/4: 13
    2004/5:
    2005/6: 12
    2006/7: 18
    2007/8: 26
    2008/9: 20+

    Imagine a Holstrom vs Antropov rivalry…That would be scary, and tall

    That seems a steep price to pay. Lashoff has not come around as fast as the Bruins would like. But he looks like he has the tools to be an above average NHL Dman. Colborne is a wild card, as he could be the next Thornton or something. Not likely…. but he is a big forward and a 1st rounder last year. You never know what could come of him. Then to give up a first round pick, wow. Perhaps that is the asking price. I guess this deal doesn't cost them a Krecji or a Wheeler or a Kessel. I would also love Pronger for the playoffs. A big, nasty dman that can play a lot of minutes, what isn't to love about that. I think Boston is a contender right now, and by adding a Pronger that is a HUGE HUGE piece. The more I keep typing, I want Boston to make a move for Pronger.

    I don't know about that… when i think of players with a Holmstrom-like role and presence people like Smyth come to mind… most definately not nik antroprov
