Despite his team having one of its best starts in franchise history and establishing itself as a Stanley Cup contender once again, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli made it clear in a recent interview that he still sees room for improvement and would like to add some scoring depth in the form of a top-six forward.

Chiarelli has shown in the past he’s not afraid to wheel and deal at or near the trade deadline, most notably in 2011 when he acquired defenseman Tomas Kaberle and forwards Rich Peverley and Chris Kelly in three separate deals leading into the deadline. While Kaberle didn’t pan out, Peverley and Kelly played pivotal roles in the Bruins' Stanley Cup run.

Chiarelli, who has been personally scouting on the road at least three times in the past week, said he wouldn’t mind getting a head start in bolstering his team for another Cup run. So with that in mind, we formed a list of five forwards Chiarelli may (or should) be targeting.

I'm not sure I'd want Micheal Ryder back, since he can be so streaky, which is the exact opposite of what a team needs in a short season. Not sure about Ignila either, and if he's want to leave Calgary, though he might for a chance at the Cup. However, if he starts to heat up, he's going to cost a lot more than the first rounder and prospects the article suggests.

 

I would love to see a PP/PK'er for the long term on the third line - that winger position has been a bit of a revolving door the past 2-3 years - just in case Chris Bourque fades. Chiarelli has to keep in mind who's contracts are up end of the year, though, and that the cap is dropping as well.

 

Thoughts?

Clowe and Iginla are the two I would want off that list,

 

Ryder can still add the goals into your lineup as well.

Clowe and Iginla are the two I was thinking too.

My problem with Ryder is he's too streaky and with a condensed season, I'd be worried.

Not sure why San Jose would want to give Clowe up... especially in a rental-like scenario.

Interesting... Briere and Alfredsson want to stay where they are, from what I've read over the last few days.
