Offense Needed (Repeat)

I am posting this again because I don't feel people really got the jist of it.

I have been thinking lately, and it has occured to me, that the need for the team is offense. We need to go out and get that top winger available by trade. Take my example of Buffalo. They have scored over 100 goals this season and the Bruins have just south of 50. The Sabres defense is ok, with guys like Spacek and Numiumen. But Chara, Stuart and Mara makes the Bruins defense better on paper than the Sabres. Granted the Sabres have two good goalies in Miller and Biron. But my point is, if your team can score 4-5 goals a game, your defense doesn't have to be AMAZING and your goaltending doesn't have to be Patrick Roy worthy. But when your offense scores 2-3 maybe 4 on a good night, your defense needs to be top notch every night and your goaltending does need to be Patrick Roy worthy every night. If I am PC, I am looking for offense, which makes me think of dangling B Stuart and a top prospect for a top winger.

Well an addition of Parrish would be nice. The point is, with less offense the more pressure on THomas and the d corp.

Maybe i'm a conservative fan but i never believed that you can compensate defensive laps by adding scoring. Scoring will help you if it's combine with a good defensive play. It's good to score 5 goals but if the opponents is able to score one more then you, you lose. Firepower could be very useful is regular season. But when you play stiffer opposition in playoffs against team with very good goaltending; your defensive laps might hurt you in a way where the best firepower would be futile. Yes, the team could score more but they have to play better in their own end and keep the whole thing simple. Right now, the team failed ( except for last night ) to execute the little right on their zone. The pressurem in my opinion, in not on our defensive squad. The pressure is all over the team to play better defensively. I still think that the first upgrade should be at the blue line. When you are solid at D and you are able to keep the puck out of your zone ( and the net ) you might win close game more often.

I agree Matt. I think the Bruins missed out in the Shanahan and Dumont sweepstakes. Everybody seems to have a different opinion when it comes to how much cap space the Bruins actually have. The whole Zhamnov case makes it confusing. Does anybody actually know how much room PC has to make a trade?
