Bruins looking hard at Campbell

From what I've been reading, it seems the Bruins may actually take a hard run at Campbell if Hossa's price is up past 8+ million.  It seems they REALLY want to add one of the two players, not only to make a splash and create attention, but they both fill needs.  Campbell could be that puck moving defenseman they really want, while Hossa is the guy they need who can score.

Also, if Campbell's price is around 6.5, they will be able to go on without buying out Glen Murray, and then when Fernandez, Axelsson, Murray and Alberts come off the books, they can go after a scorer in a deeper free agency period. 

I still believe Hossa is their main target, but I would not be surprised to see them try and snag Campbell.

Get Hossa he will come here. Get him to convince Orpik to come here problems solved.

I would love to think there is some allure to coming to the "city of champions" (no, not Brockton). Let's hope that Chia can convince these FAs that they would absolutely love it here.

Let me expand.. if Campbell is looking for 6-7+ mil then his landing spot will NOT be Boston, at least I hope not as that is WAY overpaying for him. Bs need offense first then the proverbial (new 08 buzz term for hockey) a "puck moving defenseman".

how about the sedin sisters? not so bad on the b's i think, and would be for a reasonable price. the nucks are dying to get a bertuzzi-type again, and murray could be on their radar. throw-in kessel and we got a fit.

only 3.99 a gallon in good old leominster MA but i highly doubt throwing muzz and kessel together for the sedins is going to get the job done...lets see where we stand july 1st and go from there
