07:45 AM ET 02.10 | Truly replacing Dennis Seidenberg after the Sochi break likely isn't an option in Boston, but Peter Chiarelli is willing to try. "There's not much of a market right now," Chiarelli said. "I like the personality of our team. If we don't end up doing anything, we don't end up doing anything. I'm OK. But I'd like to add some depth at some point defensively." ... [Acquisition candidates] include Henrik Tallinder, Andrew MacDonald, and Chris Phillips. The Bruins have the assets required: a first-round pick and prospects such as Zach Trotman, David Warsofsky, Justin Florek, and Alexander Khokhlachev. Two questions remain. Are any of the available defensemen better than Matt Bartkowski? If so, is it worth the high price to land such a player?

Not a bad roster to be 'stuck' with.

Chiarelli is too smart to waste valuable assets like first round picks on incremental-at-best upgrades on D.

(cough, cough, Kaberle, cough, cough)

What's a team with a 7 point lead in their conference to do?

If you google Kaberle, you'll find some photos of him holding Lord Stanley's Chalice.

Since (including)2000 there has been ten different winning teams, so it's not hard to find pics like that.

The Bruins did manage to win the SC despite Kaberle's attempt to sabotage their efforts.
