Calm Before the Storm

Besides a few, rather small signings there hasn't been much news for the Bruins this off-season. Could this be a sign of something big to happen? As mentioned in my previous posts the Bruins need that scoring punch. They need that guy who can consistently put the puck in the net. Rumors have it that we are still in the Rick Nash hunt, but in my opinion Nash isn't worth what Columbus wants in return. There have also been rumors of an interest in Bobby Ryan, which I think would be the best decision. As said in my other blogs, I wouldn't mind us trading Krejci or Lucic for Bobby Ryan. Both Krejci and Lucic are solid players, but are inconsistent at times, the Bruins need a player who can play at that consistent level. Yes we got a maturing Seguin and an up and coming Dougie Hamilton to hopefully boost the horrendous power play, but it would be nice to see a big name player in the black and gold, but only if the price is right. Let's not forget the Bruins can try and send Tim Thomas' contract somewhere, as there are a few teams who might be willing to take that $5 million to raise their cap. Also, we can bring back Brian Rolston, a player who appeared to finally wake up once becoming a Bruin in February and can add some veteran presence to the team, something that I felt the team lacked last year after Recchi retired. Maybe it's just me but I am feeling something big may happen within the Bruins organization. I feel the front office is trying to improve the team, but they don't want to give up a key player they have now. Who knows, Peter Chiarelli may stick with the same old gang and hope they play like they did two years ago. Only time will tell.
