Joe Haggerty of CSNNE wrote a piece yesterday talking about the possibility of the Bruins making a deal for Calgary's Jarome Iginla or former Bruin sniper, Michael Ryder of the Dallas Stars.
|Iginla could add a|
scoring punch to the B's
Jarome Iginla is 35 years old and on his final year of his contract. In the 12 game sample, he has registered 8 assists and 1 goal, which raises some speculation if his competitive fire has ran out due to playing on a mediocre team for so long. He did put up 32 goals and 35 assists last season, so maybe it is the shortened season that's affecting him.
The Bruins recently cleared $5million in cap space with the Tim Thomas trade, and if they place Marc Savard on Long Term Injury Reserve, they will have about $11 million in cap space. They also have the draft picks and prospects to make a deal happen.
|Ryder was a key component |
to the championship run
It will be interesting to see what the Bruins decide to do. They clearly need a play maker and both Iginla and Ryder would add that component to the team. They have the money to blow on them, and they clearly want to make a cup run. I personally would love either of the two on the Bruins. Either of them would add an offensive punch to the team that could push us to superiority.
Here's a video last year of Iginla making Roberto Luongo look like a fool.
And here's Ryder doing his thing.
So what do Bruins fans think. Sound off in the comment section or reply through twitter.
