S.O.S.

A couple quick thoughts while I’m in the car — Just finished watching the game on my last day in Arizona. Even through the  14″ screen on my laptop, the Bruins showed a total lack of heart and seemed genuinely disinterested in fighting for their playoff lives.

I’m really worried about the future of this team. Yes, I know they’ve had a ton of injuries but that’s no excuse for not showing effort. The Olympic break cannot come soon enough.

Now having lost 4 game in a row, the Bruins must understand the need for a big trade in the next few weeks. Getting Kovalchuk would require sending Rask to ATL and God help Peter Chiarelli if he makes that move. I’d like to revive the Tomas Kaberle sweepstakes to get some help for the awful Dennis Wideman.

The practical fan now knows that this team, if they make the playoffs, will struggle to make it out of the 1st round.

Where will Phil land? Certainly not Boston.

The latest news is that Nashville Predators GM has confirmed that he has been in discussions with Boston regarding Phil Kessel, and as we all know, Toronto is also in the hunt for the young forwards’ services.

Nashville does not have much to offer Boston via trade; perhaps Shea Weber (D) and Martin Erat (RW), but not much beyond that. Furthermore, I don’t believe that the Predators would want to part with Erat if they had Kessel coming in.

Toronto of course, attempted to ship Tomas Kaberle to the Bruins this June, however his no-trade clause has kicked in, meaning that Kaberle would have to approve of any trade. Toronto has more than just Kaberle to offer; Niclas Hagman (LW), Mikhail Grabovski (C), and 19 year-old Luke Schenn (D) would all look great in Black and Gold.

Stay tuned for updates.
