Breaking Down The Seven Most Common Leafs Myths of 2018/19

2018.11.02 21:23 milkplantation Breaking Down The Seven Most Common Leafs Myths of 2018/19

If you're looking to laugh at memes, this post probably isn't for you. If you're looking for stats and analysis on a number of contentious issues relating to the Leafs, pull up your pants, because I'm taking a deep dive into the seven most common myths surrounding the Leafs.

Myth #1: The Leafs Need Better Defense To Win A Stanley Cup.

The often used truism “defence wins championships” may be the most cited but understudied lines in all of hockey. The narrative suggests that come playoff time, competition incresease, offense dries up, and defense wins championships.
But in recent years, we've seen a shift away from Cup winners who utilize a defense-first strategy in favour of a more offensively inclined system. So is scoring more goals than your competition all that matters in the new NHL or are recent years simply statistical anomalies and the old truism of, "defense wins championships" still ring true?
Quickly taking a look at Stanley Cup winners from 1980 to 2018, we can see that seven Stanley Cup winning teams finished first in the league in goals against in the regular season. With that being said, there have been six Stanley Cup winning teams who finished first in the league in goals for. This does little to reinforce defense-first or offense-first systems.
You can take a look at the past 20 years below. All statistics from Corsica and NHL.com
Year Champion GA GA Rank GF GF Rank 5v5 GD GD Rank

1999 Stars 168 1st 236 8th +68 1st
1998 Red Wings 196 7th 250 2nd +54 3rd

*First overall GA Cup champions since 1980: 2015 Blackhawks, 2014 Kings, 2013 Blackhawks, 2008 Red Wings, 2003 Devils, 1999 Stars, 1983 Islanders
*First overall GF Cup champions since 1980: 2017 Penguins, 1992 Penguins, 1987 Oilers, 1985 Oilers, 1984 Oilers, 1981 Islanders
Since 1980, from the list of 38 teams who have won the Cup, nine teams who have won are tenth or worse in goals against. Of the 38 teams who have won the cup since 1980, only six teams have won the cup with tenth or worse regular seasons goals for. This seems to indicate an offense-first approach as a more successful tactic. But this correlation between variables does not necessarily imply causation.
Digging into these numbers a little further, Ijay Palansky, Harvard Law School graduate and founder of The Department of Hockey Analytics ran a regression analysis to estimate team offence (regular season GF) vs team defence (regular season GA) in Semi-Finals and Finals-Series from 1980 to 2013. The outcome gave a slight preference to goals for as a predictor of a probability of winning a Semi-Finals or Finals series, with each additional goal for that is above that of the opposition increasing a team's probability of winning a series by 0.46 percent. For each goal allowed fewer than the oppositions, a team's probability of winning increased by 0.37 percent.
Looking to outside analysis of traditional statistics in Joshua Weissbock's excellent 2014 PhD Thesis for the University of Ottawa, Forecasting Success in the National Hockey League using In-Game Statistics and Textual Data we can see that by all indications 5v5 goals foagainst seems to be the best predictor of success (0.605 vs Wins R2).
Confirming Weissbock's suggestion: Since 1992, in the last 26 seasons, only two Stanley Cup winning teams have been outside the Top 10 in goal differential. So we can conclude that, "it is neither black nor white; it is gray." That is, as long as you are elite at something (offense or defense) you've got a shot to win it all.
Lets dig a little further into the statistics behind the past ten NHL Champions:

Year Champion Save % Save % Rank PK % PP % Sh % Sh % Rank Faceoff % SHA/GP SH/GP Shooting Diff. PDO PDO Rank
2018 Capitals 92.47 13th 80.3% 22.5% 9.13% 2nd 50.4% 31.9 29 -234 101.6 4th

2012 Kings 92.94% 4th 87% 17% 6.07% 30th 51.5% 27.4 30.6 +262 99 29th
2011 Bruins 94.1% 1st 82.6% 16.2% 8.32 6th 51.9% 32.7 32.9 +15.6 102.42 1st
2010 Blackhawks 90.53% 29th 85.3% 17.7% 8.3% 7th 52.4% 25.1 34.1 +737.8 98.83% 26th
2009 Penguins 92.4% 11th 82.7% 17.2% 9.76% 1st 49.1% 29 30.3 +106 102.15 3rd

All in, the shooting percentage, special teams, faceoff percentage, and PDO don't really seem to matter. Most differentials seem to indicate no particular pattern. What stands out in the past ten years (small sample) is high-end goaltending and shot differential. The matter of defensive schemes and strengths versus offensive strengths and schemes aren't entirely irrelevant with a slight edge going to offensively driven teams, but the matter isn't especially significant and no particular trend emerges beyond the fact that you need to be elite at something and do it often.
I think Dubas is very aware of this as demonstrated by his answer to eLevateAFFN questioning him on the Leafs d-core at the Brock Q&A this past summer:
He answered it by saying that leafs currently have a really strong offense and they plan on winning by simply outscoring the other team. He said that he lets the coaches really worry about the defense and wanted to add that he wanta [sic] to bring exciting hockey to Toronto
--
TLDR: A potent offense is actually a slightly better indicator of playoff success than a stifling defense. Neither are especially strong predictors of playoff success, moreover, simply continuing to be elite at one statistical category well into the playoffs seems to be enough to win a Stanley Cup.
Conclusion: Leafs fans should be comfortable with a team that can outscore their competition, regardless of defensive liabilities. Dubas has probably combed this data.

Myth #2: Babcock Needs To Stop Using The Stretch Pass And Adjust Our Defensive Systems.

Ah, the stretch pass. I'm astonished with the pushback by our fan base on this one. The same fan base who cried to the heavens for a competent and forward thinking coach or GM who possessed an eye for analytics instantly bemoans what is arguably the biggest revolution in the game in the last five years. If you follow the NBA, the stretch pass is akin to the 3-point revolution.
Our defense may be more talented than they appear and the stretch pass might be to blame for the optics, but as we've learned, it's the right play and the right system. When a puck is turned over off a stretch pass, the vast majority of the time, it is picked off in the neutral zone and a 50/50 battle ensues. Last season, of the 1,500 stretch pass attempts the Leafs made, a clean interception of the stretch leading to a goal only happened once. Similarly, 162 scoring chances were generated off the stretch and only 19 chances came back the other way off an incomplete attempt. That's a 9:1 reward/risk ratio. Looking at goals scored, it's even more impressive at a 14:1 ratio.
Regarding our systems (I'll be as brief as possible) Ken Hitchcock's comments were very telling and confirm what our eyes tell us: The Leafs are going to continue to rely on their forwards tracking back to quickly support their defensemen. In our current system, we really just rely on our defense to break up a play and create a 50/50 battle: pokechecks, stick lifts, etc. buy enough time for our very speedy forwards to draw back and offer support. It's a conventional overload, which utilizes pressure and isolation of puck carriers to get the puck back and transition back to offense.
This is the reason Carrick was shipped out and Marincin stayed: Marincin may not be at a point where he can win the majority of his one-on-one battles, but he has an active stick that can bust up plays and a decent stretch pass to exit the zone: IE he fits the Leafs current system to a T.
Of course Babcock would love defensemen that can win all of their one-on-one battles, but the cost to acquire those players usually isn't worth it. More on that in a moment.
--
TLDR: While the stretch pass carries some risk, the risk-to-reward ratio is 9:1 and the goals scored ratio is 14:1. IE: the Leafs should continue to use the stretch. Babcock employs an overload in the defensive end, which given our defensive personnel, is probably the right system.
Conclusion: The stretch pass component and overload component of the Leafs defensive structure is a sound strategy. I could make another post exploring the Leafs defensive zone structure but believe Babcock has done a good job of optimizing the Leafs skillset (speed).

Myth #3: John Tavares Didn't Take A Hometown Discount

There is a growing sentiment that the Leafs may not be in this Nylander contract dispute if JT took less to sign here: BuT StAmKoS SiGNeD FoR 8MiL A YeAr!
Stamkos spoke to multiple teams. The Leafs offered $10.5 x 7 ($73.5 million) and he signed for $8 x 8 ($68 million) with additional tax savings in the state of Florida. All in, he took a 7.4 percent market discount from the Leafs offer to sign with the Bolts.
Tavares spoke to multiple teams. The Sharks offered 13 million x 7 years ($91 million) and the Islanders offered 11.25 x 8 ($90 million). Tavares signed for 11 x 7 years ($77 million) with an additional tax hit in Canada. He took a 15.3 percent market discount from the Sharks and Isles to sign with the Leafs.
Regarding percentage of team cap: Stamkos took 8.5 when the cap was 71.4 million. That's 11.9 percent of the team's total cap. JT took 11 when the cap was 79.5 million. That's 13.8 percent of the team's total cap.
While Stamkos seemingly took a larger hometown discount, their deals are relatively comparable. JT would have had to have signed with us for 9.5 to extend the same relative savings. In saying that, Stamkos was coming off of 64 point campaign in which he was relegated to the wing. The season prior he had 72 points. The season before that he broke his tibia and it required surgery. Keep in mind, he was negotiating for a contract that would take him to 34 years old.
From 2013-14 to 2018, Stammer played 291 of a possible 410 games (70%) and tallied 282 points (0.97 PPG). Over the same span, Tavares played 378 of a possible 410 games (92%) and tallied 372 pts (1.01PPG). Pro-rated over a full season, Tavares scores 76 points. Pro-rated over a full season, Stamkos scores 56 points.
I think we did well on the JT signing and he obviously left money on the table. I'd love if he took a further discount but the guy has been remarkably durable and remarkably consistent to expect much more.
Player Salary Cap Hit Percentage Of Cap PPG Career Percentage Of Games Played Money Left On Table
John Tavares $77 million / 7 years $11 mill 13.8% 0.93 95% 13 million
Steven Stamkos $68 million / 8 years $8.5 mill 11.9% 1.00 84% 5.5 million
--
TLDR: John Tavares took a discount to sign with the Leafs. Put it to bed.

Myth #4: William Nylander Deserves 8 Million A Year

Ah, here we are. I understand the desire to fret about our scoring and celebrate Nylander's potential,but at the moment, he is not an $8 million player. Not yet.
We can discuss hypotheticals about PP time and zone entries, but the agents of 18 other Maple Leafs players could argue in similar veins, and so the fact remains, Nylander has put up two 60 point seasons. That's it. Nylander has 0.73 PPG regular season and 0.66 PPG playoffs.
We can discuss advanced statistics and the strengths and weaknesses of Willy's game, but again, competent GMs do not pay for potential. You don't give an RFA off an ELC 8mill for two 60 point seasons unless you want to enter cap hell. Let's look at our two main divisional rivals for perspective.

Big Five Boston

Name Age Contract Cap Hit Percentage
David Krejci "A" 32 $43,500,000 x 6 7.25 9.1%
Tukka Rask 31 $56,000,000 x 8 7 8.8 %
Patrice Bergeron "A" 33 $55,000,000 x 8 6.875 8.6 %
David Pastrnak 22 $40,000,000 x 6 6.66 8.3 %
Brad Marchand 30 $49,000,000 x 8 6.125 7.7 %
Total Cap Hit 42.5 %

Big Five Tampa

Name Age Contract Cap Hit Percentage
Nikita Kucherov* 25 $76,000,000 x 8 9.5 11.9 %
Steven Stamkos "C" 28 $68,000,000 x 8 8.5 10.7 %
Victor Hedman 27 $63,000,000 x 8 7.8 9.8 %
Ryan Callahan "A" 33 $34,800,000 x 6 5.8 7.3 %
Ondrej Palat 27 $26,500,000 x 5 5.3 6.6 %
Total Cap Hit 46.3 %

Big Five Toronto

Name Age Contract Cap Hit Percentage
Auston Matthews 21 - - -
John Tavares "A" 28 $77,000,000 x 7 11 13.8 %
Mitch Marner 21 - - -
Morgan Rielly "A" 24 $30,000,000 x 6 5 6.2 %
William Nylander 22 - - -

As our fifth most important player (arguably sixth if we include Andersen) Nylander should get no more than 7.5% (6 per) - 8.5% (6.7 per) of our current cap. If he wants to juice us for all we're worth, Dubas can extend an offer of 7.1 per on December 1st so that he effectively only claims 8.5 percent of our cap hit. Keep in mind: There is no guarantee that the cap goes up each year, and it could potentially go down.
--
TLDR: Nylander is not worth anything approximating 8 million.
--

Myth #5: Mitch Marner Is Not Worth More Than William Nylander.

The fact of the matter is that this remains to be seen. But we should anticipate Marner being paid more than William Nylander and for good reason.
Marner is now in his 21 year old season. So we can't compare Mitch's numbers last year to Nylander's last year. We can compare Marner's performance this year to Nylander's last year. So far, Mitch is projecting to score 1.23 PPG with similarly skilled line mates to what Nylander played with last year while receiving some additional PP time. Mitch is a year younger and has 0.84 PPG regular season and 1 PPG playoffs and is playing meaningful minutes on the PK. Nylander has 0.73 PPG regular season and 0.66 PPG playoffs. Mitch will be paid more than Nylander this offseason and I don't even think it'll be a debate.
Age William Nylander Mitch Marner
18-19 AHL 0.86 PPG OHL 2.03 PPG
19-20 AHL 1.18 PPG NHL 0.79 PPG
20-21 NHL 0.75 PPG NHL 0.84 PPG
21-22 NHL 0.74 PPG NHL (13 games) 1.23 PPG
22-23 DNP -
Different players develop at different times. I'm not arguing that William Nylander isn't as good or won't be as good as Mitch Marner, but come contract time, Marner is going to have a much more impressive and proven resume.
--
TLDR: Mitch Marner is going to get a larger contract that William Nylander and deserves it.
--

Myth #6: The Leafs Should Trade William Nylander.

This is a complex one given that the Leafs cup window is currently open. But for the sake of this debate, let's just look at this from the perspective of asset management and the Leafs current system.
As mentioned in discussion 1, the Leafs current system is going to succeed on the back of elite goal-scoring ability. Given Nylander's proven offensive talents and micro stats, you just don't trade this guy if you can help it. The Leafs would be best-suited playing to their strengths, and their strength is scoring goals: Something Nylander can do and facilitate well.
As mentioned in discussion 2, one defensive stud will not warrant a wholesale change to the Leafs current defensive structure and systems. One could argue it may reduce the need for the dreaded high glass dump to the neutral zone on the top pairing, but an argument could be made that our defensive woes would be alleviated with better decision making and support from our wingers. I'm of the belief that as our young team accrues experience, this will occur.
But I digress, Brian Stewart explored potential trade targets for the Leafs should they want to, or have to, move on from Nylander. In potential targets in one-for-one swaps, the results were underwhelming: Pesce, Hanifin, Jaccob Slavin.
Of course, if Dubas could work some magic and package Nylander for a Zach Werenski, Ivan Provorov, Darnell Nurse, Parayko, or Dougie Hamilton...Well, we may have something there.
--
TLDR: Given the Leafs systems and style, we're better off having Nylander on our club. Barring a steal of a trade for a defensemen or an offensive weapon with the same potential, we're unlikely to get fair value for Nylander in a one-for-one swap.
--

Myth #7: If The Leafs Trade Nylander It Will Be Like Taylor Hall For Adam Larsson.

In saying we shouldn't trade Nylander, understand that if we do, it doesn't translate to getting ripped off à la Hall for Larsson. By all indications, William Nylander is not Taylor Hall. He didn't get 80 points in his 22-year-old season. He will not win a Hart trophy in his career and I'd be surprised if he ever hits 1.22PPG in a full NHL season.
Why in the world would you compare a potential Nylander trade to the Hall for Larsson trade? How can you compare Kyle Dubas to the guy who traded Tyler Seguin for Loui Eriksson, and Jordan Eberle for Ryan Strome? Sheesh.
I understand the draw to compare Nylander to Hall based upon position alone, but Nylander has shown an ability to play center and in most other organizations, I wouldn't be surprised if he slots in there. Let's look to some comparable moves in the last few years:
Player Age Position PPG TRADED Player Age Position PPG
Max Domi 23 LW/C 0.63 FOR Alex Galchenyuk 24 LW/C 0.61
Player Age Position PPG TRADED Player Age Position PPG
Jonathan Drouin 22 C 0.58 FOR Mikhail Sergachev 19 LD 0.46
Player Age Position PPG TRADED Player Age Position PPG
Adam Henrique 27 C 0.56 FOR Sami Vatanen 25 RD 0.46
Player Age Position PPG TRADED Player Age Position PPG
Ryan Johansen 23 C 0.63 FOR Seth Jones 22 RD 0.46
Player Age Position PPG TRADED Player Age Position PPG
William Nylander 22 RW/C 0.73 FOR - - - -
--
TLDR: Trading Nylander doesn't mean getting blown away in a trade in a loss comparable to Hall / Larsson

2017.06.17 06:34 Garythalberger Just had the best feeling comeback ever!

Was down 3-0 heading into the 3rd he had 5 shots no breakaways no forehand backhand shit just 3 shitty soft goals in Tukka. Tied it up and a beauty by Gaudreau with 3 minutes left. Called my timeout on the following face off and buried the GWG with Getz. No better feeling after dominating the game.

Year in Review

Offseason/Preseason

With the cap going down considerably, they had to try and drop some salary, and in doing so they had to give up assets. A huge blockbuster between them and the Dallas Stars sent the #2 pick in the 2010 draft (Tyler Seguin), Rich Peverley, and prospect defenseman Ryan Button to Dallas, and brought back forwards Loui Eriksson, Reilly Smith, Matt Fraser, and defenseman Joe Morrow. This gave them a solid defensive minded winger who could play on Bergerons wing, as well as some prospects, (one of whom had a breakout year) Six days later, the Bruins signed Tuukka Rask (Tuukka, not Tuukka) to an 8 year, $56 million contract ($7 million cap hit). Two days later, the Bruins extended their #1 center, and future captain to an 8 year, $52 million contract ($6.5 million cap hit) Prior to this, the Bruins signed future hall of famer Jarome Iginla to an incentive laden contract to stay under the salary cap.

Boston's first-round pick went to the Dal­las Stars, as the re­sult of a trade on April 2, 2013 that sent Jaromir Jagr to Boston, in ex­change for Lane Mac­Der­mid, Cody Payne, and this pick.

Up to Olympic Break

With a record of 36 W - 16 L - 5 OTL through 57 games, the Bruins were rolling. Not coasting into the break, but winning big in their last game before the break against OTT (7 - 2) and losing on a fluke goal by T.J. Oshie in OT against STL - Both games without Chara, and the St. Louis game with a combined games played by our defense less than 450 was huge. However, the damage had been done a month and a half prior when Dennis Seidenberg was sidelined with a torn ACL and MCL. The Bruins constantly struggled trying to find another top 4 defenseman to replace him this year, between Matt Bartkowski and trade deadline acquisition Andrej Meszaros.

Olympic Break to Playoffs

The Bruins didnt coast into the end of the season, they rolled off 12 straight wins, and picked up 29 of 30 points over a stretch of 15 games in March (Only loss was in OT against Montreal) They had only 8 losses from the break to the start of the playoffs - 5 of them in OT or shootout, getting 37 out of a possible 48 points in their final 24 games. However, the missing top 4 D issue was never solved, with Claude Julien wavering between Bartkowski and Meszaros. They finished the season with a whimper, resting most of their star players to get ready for the playoffs. They came within a few goals of winning the Jennings Trophy, and did win the Presidents Trophy.

Playoffs - http://www.reddit.com/hockeygamegifs/wiki/2014_boston_bruins

Crippled by the flu, a shorthanded Bruins team (seriously, Corey Potter played 17 minutes) gutted out a 1 - 0 loss in the first game against Detroit. They went on to win 4 straight and beat the Wings, in a hard fought series. It just didnt seem like they were clicking however, and David Krejci's line was invisible. The third line, centered by Carl Söderberg, was the best line in the playoffs, eating up third pairing defensemen Jakub Kindl and Brian Lashoff, as well as Mike Weaver and Douglas Murray. The Bruins played great at times against Montreal (coming back to win in game 2 after being down 3 - 1 with 10 minutes left in the third, a great game 4 capped by an OT goal from a rookie in his first playoff game), but at times they were dreadful (basically game 7). Chara looked tired and injured (he was) and Krejci didnt show up. The fourth line played horribly, and they were inexplicably put out key points of the game. Overall, they just played horribly - which is sad because this is one of the best Bruins teams Ive seen in a while. Might be fucked with a $4.75 million overage though.

Where to now?

Sign Krug. Sign Smith. Start talking about signing some of next years Free Agents (Hamilton, Boychuk, Krejci, Söderberg, maybe Paille). Trade a D man or two. Dont go over the cap. Mainly because you cant play if you do.
We still have a good chance to win next year, and in the near future, but this year we will see how good of an accountant Chiarelli is.

Year in Review

Offseason/Preseason

With the cap going down considerably, they had to try and drop some salary, and in doing so they had to give up assets. A huge blockbuster between them and the Dallas Stars sent the #2 pick in the 2010 draft (Tyler Seguin), Rich Peverley, and prospect defenseman Ryan Button to Dallas, and brought back forwards Loui Eriksson, Reilly Smith, Matt Fraser, and defenseman Joe Morrow. This gave them a solid defensive minded winger who could play on Bergerons wing, as well as some prospects, (one of whom had a breakout year) Six days later, the Bruins signed Tuukka Rask (Tuukka, not Tuukka) to an 8 year, $56 million contract ($7 million cap hit). Two days later, the Bruins extended their #1 center, and future captain to an 8 year, $52 million contract ($6.5 million cap hit) Prior to this, the Bruins signed future hall of famer Jarome Iginla to an incentive laden contract to stay under the salary cap. This kind of screwed them over for this year.

Boston's first-round pick went to the Dal­las Stars, as the re­sult of a trade on April 2, 2013 that sent Jaromir Jagr to Boston, in ex­change for Lane Mac­Der­mid, Cody Payne, and this pick.

Up to Olympic Break

With a record of 36 W - 16 L - 5 OTL through 57 games, the Bruins were rolling. Not coasting into the break, but winning big in their last game before the break against OTT (7 - 2) and losing on a fluke goal by T.J. Oshie in OT against STL - Both games without Chara, and the St. Louis game with a combined games played by our defense less than 450 was huge. However, the damage had been done a month and a half prior when Dennis Seidenberg was sidelined with a torn ACL and MCL. The Bruins constantly struggled trying to find another top 4 defenseman to replace him this year, between Matt Bartkowski and trade deadline acquisition Andrej Meszaros.

Olympic Break to Playoffs

The Bruins didnt coast into the end of the season, they rolled off 12 straight wins, and picked up 29 of 30 points over a stretch of 15 games in March (Only loss was in OT against Montreal) They had only 8 losses from the break to the start of the playoffs - 5 of them in OT or shootout, getting 37 out of a possible 48 points in their final 24 games. However, the missing top 4 D issue was never solved, with Claude Julien wavering between Bartkowski and Meszaros. They finished the season with a whimper, resting most of their star players to get ready for the playoffs. They came within a few goals of winning the Jennings Trophy, and did win the Presidents Trophy.

Playoffs - Schedule

Crippled by the flu, a shorthanded Bruins team (seriously, Corey Potter played 17 minutes) gutted out a 1 - 0 loss in the first game against Detroit. They went on to win 4 straight and beat the Wings, in a hard fought series. It just didnt seem like they were clicking however, and David Krejci's line was invisible. The third line, centered by Carl Söderberg, was the best line in the playoffs, eating up third pairing defensemen Jakub Kindl and Brian Lashoff, as well as Mike Weaver and Douglas Murray. The Bruins played great at times against Montreal (coming back to win in game 2 after being down 3 - 1 with 10 minutes left in the third, a great game 4 capped by an OT goal from a rookie in his first playoff game), but at times they were dreadful (basically game 7). Chara looked tired and injured (he was) and Krejci didnt show up. The fourth line played horribly, and they were inexplicably put out key points of the game. Overall, they just played horribly - which is sad because this is one of the best Bruins teams Ive seen in a while. They also might have fucked ourselves with the cap situation, with a $4.75 million overage.

Where to now?

Sign Torey Krug. Sign Reilly Smith. Try and sign Iggy. Start talking about signing some of next years Free Agents (Hamilton, Boychuk, Krejci, Söderberg, potentially Paille).
Dont go over the cap. Mainly because you cant play if you do.
We still have a good chance to win next year, and in the near future, but this year we will see how good of an accountant Chiarelli is.

Why the Bruins Will win the cup in 2015
Okay. They got this. Chara's window is closing, they need to win now. With Seidenberg healthy, and Loui Eriksson (remember him?) back to his usual self after having two concussions relitively close together should help. The kids play well, and we dont have any major injuries. Dougie continues to develop as much as he did this year, and our defense is solid. Rask shuts the door, and shuts up the "Cant play in big game" naysaysers.
Why the Bruins Won't win the cup in 2015
Chara shows his age, key players get hurt, they play dumb against Montreal again.
We panic and trade people to get under the cap.

Why the Bruins Will win the cup in 2015
Okay. They got this. Chara's window is closing, they need to win now. With Seidenberg healthy, and Iginla hopefully back for another year, and Loui Eriksson (remember him?) back to his usual self after having two concussions relitively close together should help if they cant sign Iginla. Hopefully he will take a one year deal for short money though, because he was great with Krejci and Lucic, and Eriksson was great with Söderberg.
Why the Bruins Won't win the cup in 2015
Chara shows his age, key players get hurt, they play dumb against Montreal again.
We panic and trade people to get under the cap.
