Signed but will he stay long enough to show something before being trade?

Now that's what you call pessimistic!

I want to see what you folks think about this - I have a running bet a work that the Bruins will make the playoffs (regardless of seed). They think that the B's have no shot.

Who's got the upper hand here - wise bet of me to take the B's making the playoffs?

Logic - The Bruins have only improved upon a team that finished near the basement last year. Any playoff team's regular/post-season success depends upon a solid goaltender, which the B's finally have. With the additions of Schaefer, another year of experience for Kessell, new coach, etc. I certainly believe the B's can contend for a playoff spot, even if it is a 7 or 8 seed.

The anonymous one have a point. How many times did we saw the B's trade a player because they were too lazy to work with him or simply because they had no solutions to his problems?

For once we finally have some prospects in Hamill, Lucic, Marchand, Krejci, Rask, and Soderberg. We might finally get that winning mix where we can get some good productivity with little cap hit.

I like the immediate effort to sign. For once, it seems that the B's are making an effort to develop from the ground-up. I think that by looking at the successes of the Sharks, Oilers, Ducks, and other teams that have recently seen success with about half of their team being home-grown, or acquired-as-a-prospect type guys, the B's are seeing that this is the way to really succeed in the NHL. There is no room to take mediocre talent from around the league anymore, you need to cultivate talent so you can maximize your dollar.

Hamill is too young. If he doesn't make the B's roster, he will be returned to his junior team. Expect him to play in Vancouver, next season.

i can see us making the 6-8th seed for the playoffs, just because we don't have big names.doesn't mean we can't win!we still have a pretty ok roster, look at minny,if they can do it with a simular coach, so can we...

OK.. well, all you folks bitching about the past can stop now. We have a new GM, coach (well, we always have new coaches but..) and some really good young talent. The reason they brought Chia in in the first place was because Ottawa built from within and is competitive every year. We need to be a bit more patient with this team and MGT. I am as frustrated as the rest of you for not winning in so long but we have to start somewhere.
Carry on...

you know what, when this team starts winning again it will be that much sweeter. Those of us who are in it for better or for worse watching the 9-1 losses until the end of the 3rd period will get much more satisfaction when the team becomes relevant again.


Let's not be bandwagon fans here! This is our favorite hockey team! Cheer for them through thick and thin!

I agree with Mckeon. This team have everything to prove. There was plenty of seasons where they were good " paper " only to falter on the ice.

I've always been a huge fan... good times and bad times! But I admit, I groan when they make a dumb trade (Thornton, Jurcina, Boyes)

Another side note.... Chistov signed with a Russian team. So that makes him a defected player (or the Bruins can suspend him), and his salary will not count against the cap.

the Bruins held a development camp for the firs time this year. That is a big sign of a team planning to build from within. Last years bad trades of Jurcina and Boyes show the faith PC has in the coaches he hires, he just hired a bad coach last season and learned from his mistake. I hope.
