If you haven't taken out your stereotypical red marker and circled February 28, 2011 - do it. We'll wait, it shouldn't take long.
:leaning back in chair:
Oh good, you're done! Why did you circle that date? It's the NHL Trade Deadline dopey! Yes, 2/28/11 at 3pm is the NHL Trade Deadline and like everyone else in the world it's time to me for dive in to Peter Chiarelli's brain and figure out what the hell he's going to do. He already picked up Chris Kelly from the Ottawa Senators for the Bruins second round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
It has been reported that Chiarelli has a "List of 9" as in 9 defensemen that he believes could impact the Bruins chances at a Stanley Cup this season. Now, some of the guys on the "List of 9" are probably easy to figure out - guys like Tomas Kaberle from Toronto or Eric Brewer from St. Louis. Being the guy I am, I had to know about the other 7. I laid awake last night, looking up at my ceiling saying to myself "I need to find this list. Not just for me, but for the people who support the Bruins."
We have to know what we're dealing with.
Well folks, I can't tell you that I dressed up as a cleaning woman and walked in to Chiarelli's office while he was in the bathroom to steal the "List of 9", but I can tell you that I have the list. Some of these are probably long shots, but with the right deal, I believe Peter can pull it off.
After the jump... we decipher Chia's List of 9...
