Obviously the big aquisiton for the Bruins was Jaromir Jagr, but we all knew Chiarelli wasn't done. The defense this year hadn't been spectacular and Chiarelli said he wanted to add a defenseman to the mix. A lot of fans wanted someone like Yandle or Ryan or Boyle -- either the NHL unicorn (PMD) to help on the power play or a shut down defenseman to help what's been a really weird season defensively for the team.
So Chia brings in Wade Redden. Yep, Wade Redden.
Redden played for the Senators for what felt like forever, averaging in the mid 30s-50 point range per season. Then he signed a rediculous contract with the NY Rangers and just **** the bed compared to his salary.
He eventually for waived by the Rangers and signed with the Blues. And now he's in Boston. Not exactly the move a lot fans were hoping for, but Chia opted to get defensive depth instead of brining in someone to shake things up on the blue line. Chia's not igornat of Wade...
