John-Michael Liles? Are you kidding me? What exactly is the point of adding a 35 year old defenseman to this dumpster fire of a team? Every single time the Bruins play a quality opponent, they wind up getting spanked up and down the rink. What a joke this is. The fact that Don Sweeney couldn't trade Loui Eriksson is downright ridiculous. It is Peter Chiarelli all over again, over-valuing the players on his roster and failing to make a tough decision.
What exactly is the motivation for keeping Eriksson? The Bruins also added Lee Stempniak for some reason. A classic journey-man player that I guess you could call an upgrade over Rinaldo, whom was sent down to the AHL earlier today. I don't understand it. This team needed to be sellers, instead they added two aging players to a team that is dead upon arrival come playoff time. What a disaster. Instead of getting younger and building for the future, the Bruins are going to drag their asses into the playoffs only to get spanked.
It appears getting a couple of home playoff games and the money that comes along with that meant more to the Bruins this year than making a tough call on a player in Eriksson that they would be stupid to resign in the off-season. Nice job, Don.
