The Bruins finally were able to dump Kyle McLaren. Unfortunately, he is know a San Jose Shark. They got Jeff Hackett from hated rivals Montreal. He was filling in for Jose Theodore when he was slumping early on in the season. At least he's better than the recently departed John Grahame and Steve Shields. The Bruins still need a top-notch defenseman. As long as Samsonov is on the shelf, they go nowhere in the postseason.

Jeff Hackett is a solid pick up for the B's. They could have saved themselves the trouble and just re-sign Byron Dafoe in the off season. Talk about lose-lose situation Dafoe is stuck in the ATL (and injured) and the Bruins were left with a goalie... But yes Hackett looks like could do a decent pick up.

I cannot believe that Montreal would trade a top goaltender to a team within their Conference. What are they thinking?

Well, Montreal didn't trade him directly. And a 34 year old Hackett isn't exactly in the elite of the league. It is an upgrade for the Bruins, though. Hackett is also an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, so this may be a rental only. Getting Jeff Jillson in the deal bodes well for the Bruins as well.

PS - Watching Hackett play with his balck and gold Bruins uniform and his red, white and blue Canadiens pads the other night was priceless! Especially getting the shutout!

Jillson is an offensive defenseman who split time with the AHL last year but still racked up some good Power Play points for the Sharks - had him for a while in one of my fantasy leagues

As a Habs fan, I like the trade for the following reasons;


Hackett wasn't going to be coming back next year, regardless of what he did this year. The Habs tossed the money bags at Theodore during the off-season, so it was obvious that he's number one. Add the fact he's a french-canadian goalie, Theodore is pretty much a lock to be number one....at least until he lets in nine goals in a game against Detriot. Sundstrum isn't great, but he isn't bad either. He fills a hole on the second line, and IIRC, he scored a critical goal a couple of days ago which helped the Habs win. The Habs also save money, because they won't have to spend a million or so on a backup goalie.

The Bruins get a solid goalie for the nsext couple of years (if they keep him after this year), and trade a defenseman they weren't going to be getting back. Even if Hackett doesn't come back, the Bruins still come out of this trade looking good.

San Jose gets a firstline defenseman at the cost of a secondline winger, and all other people involved in the trade stay in another conference. McLaren will surely enjoy the atmosphere in California. San Jose seems to get some good out of this trade too.

Try scoring on him if the Habs make the playoffs this year.

"At least he's better than the recently departed John Grahame"

Hey Now! Grahme has been doing a fine job since coming to the Lightning. He's got 3 wins, 2 shutouts, and is pushing the Bulin wall for the number one spot. He may not be a top goalie in this league but he's exactly what any team would need for a solid #2 goalie.
