Bruins, Campbell speaking?

According to TSN, the Boston Bruins have been granted permission to speak with Campbell.  He has wanted to stay East for some reason.

Matt's Take: I don't get why you would pay 6.5-7.5 million for Campbell when you need scoring.  If they go after a high priced UFA, Hossa makes much more sense than Campbell.

Maybe they think they will have enough cap room to get both Hossa and Campbell

they do need an offensive minded defenseman who can carry the puck tho too, maybe not the price of campbell but it cant hurt to talk

Nice! This is what they need. I defenseman that can help generate offense from their own zone (like Lidstrom and Rafalski)

I agree that they still need some offense but solid defense is the way to go, first. Dump Murray and now trade Kessel for a scorer. Anyway we can trade for Rolston back?

Wow! As good as Campbell is... then why did they re-signed with ward? what happens with wideman? you have ference, hnidy, stuart, alberts... where is the space on the roster for lashoff and hunwick (...and not just for next season)? Hmh! Yes! Defense would be very good... but to me Hossa would make more sense...

Take Wideman to arbitration and send him packing (trade for draft picks) so you have room for Campbell (max 4.5-5mil/yr). Then trade Kessel and Axelson for picks, pick up the cap space and sign Hossa or Malone (after dumping/trading Murray). We could even afford to move Ference to pick up more cap space. His +- sucked last year anyways.

The best way to score goals is to get the puck out of your zone and keep it in thiers. The Bruins forecheckers to a good job with puck control, and the defence did a great job keeping the play on the perimeter when the opposition had control, but the transition game was hurting. Campbell would help fix that problem nicely.
