Interesting move in Boston. They grabbed Jiri Slegr from the Canucks.
The move is interesting becuase Boston is really in need of an offensive defenseman. Slegr doesn’t really fit that mold. Boston also needs some kind of powerplay specialist. Either a strong presence on the point, or someone who can dish the puck in the offensive zone. Slegr doesn’t leap to mind as that kind of player either. He’s a much more traditional, strong defenseman. Not a bad pickup at all, but not what the Bruins really, really need.
