They have to obtain Eichel they got no one to carry on the 1st and 2nd lines. Jack Studnicka the day they roll the toothpaste back in the tube. Huala scored 20 goals once he’ll never do it again. Foligno Matt Belesky wanna be. The bruins are sunk,

Another goal scorer besides Marchand!

Jack Eichel is the missing link! A goal scorer! Sign him- he wants to play in Boston!
