What's next for the Bruins?

With the fallout in the deal with Minnesota for Manny Fernandez the Bruins with go into a different direction. The move I think will be made is beacause of a trade that did happen this past weekend. That would be Tomas Vokoun to the Florida Panthers for a couple of draft picks. With the Panthers already having Alex Auld as their goalie for the future before the Vokoun deal and Auld is already under contract for next season. That leaves Auld's partner last season expendable, Eddie Belfour. The 42 year old free agent will be looking for a new home. The Bruins backed out of the deal for Manny because they wanted too much. By signing Belfour you get a quility goalie for 1-2 years that will give Raask and Hannau to spit time down in Providence. Belfour can be your 1B guy and Tim Thomas as your 1A guy and split time. We need something like this because Tomas got burnt out when he plays longger than a week straight, he needs his rest. Belfour did get in Florida, he's a proven winnner with a Stanley Cup ring. There's two things you get with Belfour a guy who gives you a chance to win and will be making bartenders and taverns around Boston very happy. Who wouldn't want to be in the NHL and be the man at the bar all at the same time; and that my friend is your next goalie for the Boston Bruins, Eddie "the Eagle" Belfour.

Any questions?

Belfour does have a history of back injury though and is getting pretty old. I think theres a good chance he'll get hurt and we'll be stuck with timma for the season again.

If were about to sign another old millage plug between the pipes and have the same result as with Thomas, we've better play Hannu and sit Thomas on the bench. But, signing a real #1 will help the team short term and give the necessary time to Rask to developp without the pressure to be in the NHL and win immedialtely.
