Bruins Acquire Chistov

Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has acquired Stanislav Chistov from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for the third round draft pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft that the club acquired along with Paul Mara on June 25, 2006 from the Phoenix Coyotes.

Chistov, a 23-year-old left winger, has played one game for the Ducks this season, and three with Portland (AHL) while on a conditioning stint.

The Chelyabinsk, Russia native spent last season playing in the Russian Super League, scoring 11 goals and tallying 21 assists in 47 games with Metallurg Magnitogorsk.

Prior to his time in the Russian Super League, Chistov played the 2002-03 season (79 games, 12-18=30) and 2003-04 season (56 games, 2-16=18) with the Ducks. He spent the 2004-2005 season with Cincinnati (AHL) scoring 15 goals and registering 23 assists in 79 games.

Matt's Take: Ok move, he is a 3rd line winger, but is young and has some talent. He is cheap money and is worth it. He could end up surprising many.

That's the 3rd round pick they acquire in the Boyton deal so it cost nothing...

Is that your way of saying you hated Boynton too? If so, are there any Bruins you actually like?

Well actually it does. We gave up a 4th rounder with him for mara and a 3rd rounder. So actually were giving up a 4th rounder.

Actually; i was pretty deceive when they trade Boynton for Mara. But i guess the team was ready to ship him after his holdout...

This is an interesting move. This guy is a misfit. Misfits are a gamble: they can be that key piece--that huge steal--or they can be a bust. More often bust.

I think this move is a sign of just how weak PC's trading position is. This isn't a prelude to a bigger move, it is *the* move..

I also think that people should't expect this guy to walk right into the organization and make a difference. That seems really unlikely given his recent record. With those sort of expectations being created by the media I doubt he has much of a chance. Likely, after a few games everyone is going to be compaling about how poorly he plays...

Here's hoping I'm wrong.
