So, Alan Muir has an article up on CNNSI saying that with the salary cap penalty levied on the Bruins, they are getting close to being in a situation similar to the Blackhawks where they are going to have to trade away some attractive pieces to stay under the cap.
He talks about dumping guys like Thomas or Savard, but says the Bruins would need to sweeten the deal with a guy like Hamill, and he talks about not being able to keep Stuart.
So, did the Bruins go wrong somewhere? Where was the mistake? Sure would suck to have to lose too many pieces before we get our cup. I'm still of the opinion that the Bruins are set to be a really strong team over the next half decade, especially two to three years from now. But, that would be hurt by giving up young guys on the way up.
Dumping a Savard would be fine, but what if you have to give up a Krecji, or a Hamill, who they will count on in a few years.
Thoughts? Be nice, it's my first time.
