Rumors: Bruins Trade Options, Wild and Panthers

In my opinion, we can put the Boychuk trade rumors to rest now. The Bruins are fine, thank you, and will not trade away an experienced playoff defenceman like Boychuk – not in a year where they see themselves making a run for Lord Stanley’s Cup. This would be self-defeating. When the dust settles, they’ll be about $400,000 under the cap. I can see them moving Bartkowski and/or Chris Kelly or Gregory Campbell. This type of trade would give them some breathing room. They may have to eat part of Kelly’s salary, but even taking half of it ($1.5 million) off the books would be a good move. In fact, they would then have room to sign Simon Gagne, should he make the team. Whatever the case, I do think Chiarelli will get a minor deal done, in the next week or so at the latest.
