Suggested Listening- My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark by Fall Out Boy
We finally got a win, I mean it seems like its been ages since the Bruins came to play. They didn’t exactly “come to play” tonight though, they just are a more talented team than the Sabres.
Tomorrow is April first, and although the Flames pulled an early April fool’s day joke on us with the Iginla “trade.”
Well no worries because, hey, puck don’t lie, and Crosby is out for a while. Oh oh, or karma’s a bitch huh?
The Bruins need a forward that is apparent and it is of utter importance that they trade to get a slick top 6 forward who is not afraid to stick up for himself and teammates.
Guys like that have been locked up long term and are on teams that have what the Bruins can trade, which is goaltending.
Yes, they have goalies to trade, Tuukka Rask being the biggest chip to trade. He can get the Bruins a talent now and perhaps a prospect or pick later. He is very young and talented. The thing is the Bruins also have talented goalies, Khudobin, Svedberg and Subban all having considerable talent. And are also young.
The way Khudobin performed tonight looks like he could take a load of the starts if necessary.
I say, trade Rask for the highest bidder and see what Khudobin can do, and what the newly acquired talent can score for him.
It couldn’t hurt could it?
Subban looks like he’ll only need 2 years to get up here, and that’s about the time that Seidenberg and Chara will really decline so its more that we need some scoring more than anything.
The Bruins need to make a trade and I can’t preach that any more than I have. Possible targets could be St. Louis (not for Rask one up), but he would help the dreadful powerplay and right the 3rd line.
I don’t know much about AHL prospects and the other team’s ones at that; but the Bruins could try to stand pat and see how their very own players could do.
No time like the present right?
Anyway, I got distracted and have some work to get done. They need to make a trade somehow, end of story.
+ The picture is of Crosby breaking his jaw and losing several teeth…
