Rumors: Bruins, Stars, and Sharks

  • Joe Haggerty of CSNNE: (mailbag) Cody Franson has talked to the Sabres about a two year deal, and he’s likely had talks with other teams about a shorter term contract. He’s likely holding out for a longer term deal and may be looking to see if a team gets desperate after a training camp injury.  A long-term deal with the Bruins may not make sense due to some younger, cheaper defensemen in the system.

    The Bruins could look to bring in some players on a PTO, possibly Michael Ryder, Peter Budaj and Marek Zidlicky if they don’t sign elsewhere.

    The Bruins could look move the salaries of Dennis Seidenberg or Chris Kelly if the right deal comes along. Haggerty would be hesitant to move Seidenberg unless they are able to then add an impact defenseman with the extra cap space. Loui Eriksson will likely be staying put at this point.David Schlemko could be a PTO candidate.

    With the Bruins ending up with two first round picks, a blue chip prospect, and a college prospect for Milan Lucic, that would likely be the in the area of what it would cost to trade for Jets Dustin Byfuglien. He’d be an intriguing fit in Boston, but would be a potentially expensive rental.
