By the way, Bickell has been put back on Shaw line this last game and might have been in game 1 too, and he hasn't been the same offensive powerhouse everyone was worshipping earlier in playoffs.

 

he had a great series against us, but he is definitely not someone i would put as a high value target. he is a depth guy. the wings need a legit top 6 guy. 


I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

Bickell is an upgrade over Abby. Bickell to me is a middle 6 guy....very capable of playing on second line.

With the way the two play right now, Bickell is an upgrade offensively a maybe physically. Abby is faster.

Bickell's going to get paid though. Like 4M per year. Is he twice as good as Abby, who makes 1.85 per ?

I'd love to have them both, but I'd rather take Bickell money + trimming-the-fat money and spend it on Clarkson or Horton. Legit top six wingers.

Horton is awesome. Boston will not let him go, so cancel plans for him.

See I agree Horton or vlarkson should be top priority. But bickell as a plan b isn't all that bad either. You bring up a valid point as well. Money is a question. But I think 4m is OK but any more then its too much.

Boston have 18 players signed for next year with only $4M cap space.  Rask is an RFA, and 2/3 of their line-up have NTCs .  They're going to have to do some major roster surgery to sign Rask AND Horton AND fill out their roster.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

They will figure out a way.

Really? Because unlike Detroit, Boston doesn't have a whole lot of dead-weight contracts.

Add Briere to the list. I'm biased because I've wanted him on the Wings for some time now.

Bickell Wants To Stay In Chicago

 

Story

 

 

I'm sure he wouldn't say, "Hell no, I want to get out of here as soon as possible" even if it was true at this point.

And I'm sure Chicago would love to retain him but they probably won't have any cap space. 



I voted Ribeiro and Ryder. Age aside both can score pretty consistently which is what I think we need the most. I'm pretty confident that Clarkson had a Hartnell-like season and won't meet those offensive numbers again going forward. Just my opinion.

Ribeiro and Ryder soon to be poor man's Nyquist and Tatar.

I don't think the Bruins will have cap space for him.
