i think this is a great move. we get rid of a guy who was doing absolutely nothing for a guy who is a career plus player and has another year left on his contract.

i know nothing about this guy aside from what I have read today, so, I have to plead the 5th here. Don't be so quick to jump on Chia for this one until we see how this guy plays in Boston. Even though he is

So, what has Bochenski done for us this year? Anything is better than what he has done.

I am hoping for another move. This is not enough to shore up the defence

I like the move. Like mentioned earlier, what has Bochenski done this year....nothing ! Hnidy is a solid stay at home guy that can pound guys. This is what the B's need. Not another offensive D man that gets caught. And the plus.....he's a good Manitoba Guy from Neepawa !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think it's pretty much guaranteed that there will be another move made by Chiarelli before the deadline. This was something that had to be done. This also shows that Alberts (head) and Ward (foot) are going to miss significant time.

Maybe that they got a depth defenseman he'll go for the scoring forward next? Hossa anyone if Atlanta falls out of the race?

I don't think that Atlanta is falling out of the race anytime soon, they have been playing inspired hockey since picking up Mark Recchi. Hossa is a pipe dream.

As for this trade, I love it. Hnidy is more experienced than roughly half of our defense, he is solid defensively, and a big hitter. Bochenski clearly didn't fit in as hoped - he was brought in to score goals and he has not done any of that this season. His style only fits the top two lines of this team, but his skill does not match that level of play. Hnidy will be both a quick fix and a long-term solution. Immediately, he is a defensive defenseman that can step in while Ward, Alberts, and Allen are all hurt. This will open up options for Wideman and Ference, give Chara some much needed rest, and add defensive support. With all of our injuries, our only defensive-minded defenseman left was Mark Stuart.

I love this trade especially because Bochenski was a regular healthy scratch anyway.

Not a bad trade what the bruins need was big hitter and he is that.
Bochenski was in the dog house anyway.Bruins need is a power foward like a malone from pitt.

When you look at the current D, Lashoff and Hunwick should be loggin minutes in Providence. Stuart is a rookie, Wideman, Ward and Chara are locks. Hnidy's arrival will mean Hunwick can go back to Providence to build his game. And can take some minutes of of Chara and Wideman. This is good becasue it's one less D that Julien has to teach, one less that Chara needs to babysit. Expectations were huge for Bo, which yes he did look slow but was getting his chances. Much like Muzz I felt that when he potted his first, the others would flow. And yes he will flourish in Anaheim mainly because the D is solid in Anaheim and the forwards are only focussed on scoring not playing D. We'll see how Hnidy adapts tonight against Ovechkin. Trade dealine is only about a month away and I don't expect HUGE trades. You would think teams would want to dump salaries to use the cash for UFAs, but I don't see much after this year (Hossa perhaps and Ovechkin if he doesn't resign). No big UFAs, no real reason to dump big names and in a month, there can be one or two teams selling and 28 buying - that does not look good for Chia to pull a trade.

What the hell do the B's have to do to get this site updated? They just beat the Caps in every area of the game and yet nothing. If you have access to internet after the game put something out there for discussion. Not sure what it takes to update a site like this but come on now guys.

To the trade... Great move by Chia. He recognized that the D was losing strength and experience so he got needed help. Chara's ice time was cut and it showed in his play tonight. With Hnidy added to the lineup the B's will be tough to play against.

yeah good game tonight, I wish they could have had a strong start to one of the periods...BUT scoring the first goal and Thomas only having to stop 3 or 4 great chances was excellent.

Anyone hear the latest injury updates because I haven't been able to find anything.

Nice insights Big E. I pretty much agree with you, but dont expect Ovechkin to go anywhere. He will resign, and the Caps will fill his pockets.

Ted Leonsis may not have had the best luck in recent years, but he's not stupid. To let Ovechkin go, would be letting go half his season ticket holders. That may be an exaggeration, but he knows he cant afford to lose him.

I predict 6 years, 11 Mill average.

Well what do you know we acquired another mediocre player. This team is a waste to spend money on and a waste to watch. Spend some money on a player with talent Peter C you blockhead.
