A Bruins Defense Volume 3: Trade Your Way to a Better Tomorrow

Well, Doc had some great points. Buying out Dennis Seidenberg would save the Bruins a bunch in cap space and give them some freedom in signing new talent. Brian Campbell is a better defenseman than John-Michael Liles for sure, however, with the age of this group, I’m nervous signing a 37 year-old to a two-year contract.  With Adam McQuaid turning 30 in October, the Bruins would have three defenders on the wrong side of 30 with a buyout of Seids and addition of Campbell.

Bruins @ Blue Jackets 2/16/16 – Third Period

 

Period 1B was nothing special.

 

Back and forth action, mostly, and some penalties in each direction. McQuaid phantom tripped Saad, who didn’t actually fall down. Still tied at 1.

 

Tuukka Rask was shaken up at the end of the first after a Matt Beleskey hit gone all kinds of wrong, but he came back to make some big saves.

 

On tap: more wine.

Too bad I don’t have any from the great nation of Finland, home of our Lord and Savior, Tuukka Rask.
