Boston Bruins Rumours

Oilers need to do this right. They need to make the right moves now.
1. Hire an experienced coach. Babcock or McLellan
2. Sign UFA forward. Soderberb would be great. He can play centre or wing with size and skill.
If not, how good would Justin Williams look on the oilers? A great winner veteran.
3. Sign a dman. Sekera would be the perfect fit.
4. Make some trades.
A. Trade draistal and marncin for seth Jones or Hamilton.
Nash could use some young blood. Forsberg and draistal would look great. They also still got weber and Josi.
Boston will have such a hard time signing Hamilton. They get back good youth.
B. Pitts 1st Rd (Plus prospect of needed) for a goalie. Get one with experience. I think Anderson would be the best choice. I like talbot, lack, Jones, but oilers need someone who has really proven it. Niemi would be a mistake unless oilers get him for 2 years only for 8 to 9 million.
Sekera/Jones or Hamilton
20 Apr 2015 11:06:20
You'd have to add a lot more than that to get Hamilton. which wouldn't happen anyway.
20 apr 2015 13:30:40
mc david will be in toronto with in five years mark my words
20 Apr 2015 14:28:40
no way nash gets rid of seth jones
20 Apr 2015 17:06:28
more like nugent-hopkins or hall to get guys like hamilton or seth jones. Top dman are very hard to come by and I think gms know edmonton has a huge need and if anything would get them to overpay (and knowing edmontons management staff they would). I can't see williams coming to edmonton he wants to play on a competitive team that has a chance to win the cup. Same with sekera but I could see edmonton overpaying in order to get one of the top free agent dman.
20 Apr 2015 18:36:27
DAWSON. I would expect he'd be there next year.
Not sure when the schedule is released but the OIl will play there at least once.
20 Apr 2015 23:10:49
No way mcdavid is not going to be in Toronto!
21 Apr 2015 05:21:05
Its 7yrs for McDavid to become a UFA and become a Leaf in the future, but I will agree when his contract is done he will thank Edmonton and the Fans etc. and leave for Leaf land to probably a Top 5 Team if Shanahan sticks to what he says and rebuilds the Leafs properly and if he has then adding a 25yr old McDavid in his prime years could mean the Leafs could be the Team to beat in the 2022/23 Season. what's another 8yrs to wait eh. Lol
14 Apr 2015 04:41:57
bos: milan lucic
buf: marcus foligno and one of the first round pick they have, islanders or blues
bos: reilly smith and third round pick
ott: zack smith and alex chiasson
edm: 2nd round pick
bos: krecji and seidenberg
van: alex edler and first round pick
marchand bergeron connolly
eriksson spooner pastrnk
foligno smith chiasson
talbot kelly ferlin
14 Apr 2015 17:02:34
Pretty good overall, but the third trade needs more from Vancouver.
09 Apr 2015 22:15:49
Probably won't happen, Not sure of Value.
Rights to Dougie Hamilton
Smith,Jurco, 1st 2015 or 16
Boston gets to re-unite Smith Bros and a young forward in Jurco who can score. Plus a first.
Maybe Detroit adds a prospect like Sproul.
Too Much? Too Little?
Not sure of Hamilton's value
10 Apr 2015 00:33:39
I like it bc smith is ok and jurcos pretty good and probably pic in 16
10 Apr 2015 06:15:45
value is somewhat fair but Boston won't be trading dougie
10 Apr 2015 16:08:36
So a 2015 (or 2016) 1st, a former 1st (Brendan Smith) and an early 2nd (35th Tomas Jurco) for the Rights to Dougie Hamilton. I would imagine Peter Chiarelli would like that trade, Ken Holland not so much.
10 Apr 2015 16:34:15
Who cares when they were drafted none of those things except for maaaybe the first have as much value as Hamilton
10 Apr 2015 17:45:58
Smith could be a 2nd pairing D-man if he can find the right system and partner. Jurco has potential to be a 2nd line scorer. May be a little slow because he had to rush into NHL a little too soon. The 1st is a good way for Boston to add Youth.
Hamilton gives Detroit a large 6 foot 5 Right Handed D-man who can shoot and play solid in his own end.
05 Apr 2015 12:25:17
Bos: Reilly Smith Bos 3rd(2015)
Njd: Adam Larsson
New jersey gets a younger scoring forward while Boston gets a young right handed dman to play with seidenberg if he doesn't get dealt.
Bruins defence next year - Chara - Hamilton
Seidenberg - Larsson
Krug - Mquaid
05 Apr 2015 15:59:19
Seems resanoble, since Smith has not been as good as he was last year. Maybe take out the pick from Boston though. A one for one would work.
05 Apr 2015 18:45:00
no nj wouldn't do it. well I wouldn't if I were them, i'm still very high on larsson. I think he'll be a very good dman if put in the right situation. right now this nj team is embarrassing because they don't know who they are. I still think larsson could become a #2d on the right team, a larsson rielly combo would look good no? on detroit I think he be a very good buy for us, but we have marchenko so we don't need him, but I really like larsson and hope he succeeds, believe he is worth more than that tho
24 Mar 2015 23:09:28
Bruins Draft Day Deals
Bos: Lucic Khokhlachev 2015 2nd
Bos: Seidenberg seth griffith
25 Mar 2015 09:59:17
Interesting. might work, but that's a little rich on the second trade. Edmonton may have to add on both, but it's a start.
25 Mar 2015 20:14:20
Can't see the Edmonton deal happening; Lucic is fading fast - his best days are behind him. Khokhlachev is a smaller skilled foward - exactly what the Oil have too much of. And the 2015 2nd is useful but its just more hope for the future.
I think what you have to think about is this: What does Edmonton need? Goaltending and top pairing D. does this trade solve these problems???
And another point - Could the Oil get more for Taylor Hall from other teams? I think definately yes.
Seabass - how would you possibly think that Edmonton would have to add??
26 Mar 2015 00:16:44
You're joking right? Edmonton needing to add?! Edmonton trading a formal first overall pick for a big body that hasn't done anything and a lazy russian?
26 Mar 2015 11:49:51
Lucic best days behind him?? Is only 25-26 are you ok?
He's having a bad season like most of the bruins player
Rather have lucic than hall who is always injured
Lucic 30 goals with 200 minutes of penalty.
He's able to give big body check and earn respect just
Being on the ice .
Bruins overall had a bad season . No players reach the 25 goals mark this year so far. They are not all fading
26 Mar 2015 14:56:36
JS - I'd rather have Hall/you Lucic, so I guess we agree that this trade makes little to no sense for both teams.
My point on Lucic is this - the game he plays is going to have a big impact on his health moving forward - and he's going to demnad a longterm contract at some significant $$, that is a big risk that I would'nt make - apparently you would.
26 Mar 2015 21:14:36
Yes lucic doesn't have the value he did at the start of the season but edmontons top 6 forwards are hall nuge eberle yak roy and pouliot. if you didn't know the only person above 6'2 is pouliot and he doesn't really belong in the top 6 does he? I think mac t would take that offer in a heartbeat AND it benefits both teams- boston gets a scoring winger which they oh-so need and edmonton gets a first liner to get in on the forecheck and win battles consistently and if looch plays with nuge and eberle? pretty sure he'd do just fine
26 Mar 2015 21:20:14
if that's the case how about svedberg instead of koko
24 Mar 2015 22:39:24
Probably won't happen:
Zdeno Chara, Reilly Smith
Kindl, Jurco, 1st 2016
Detroit may need to add way more but I am not sure what they can add that will be helpful and with cap restrictions.
Probaably won't get Chara, might get Reilly Smith so he can play on the same team as his brother.
25 Mar 2015 15:52:11
Why would Detroit want Chara, he's expensive, old and slow.
23 Mar 2015 23:49:38
boston bruins big shakeup in offseason
reilly smith for beau bennett + 3rd round pick
milan lucic for joe colborne, emile poirier + 2nd round pick
david krecji and kelly for colin wilson, taylor beck, first round pick, ryan ellis + 2nd round pick
loui erikkson for emerson etem
zdeno chara for alex goligoski and jamie oleksiak
niklas svedberg for matt nieto
lineup for next year
marchand bergeron bennett
wilson spooner pastrnak
nieto etem connolly
colborne talbot beck
24 Mar 2015 23:48:27
Shakeup yes. total dismantling no. Lucic stays, Krejci stays. Sorry, but no way Joe Colborne comes back.
24 Mar 2015 23:49:39
. and what about Adam McQuaid? I'd play him ahead of both of the second pairing you have there.
24 Mar 2015 23:55:40
Etem's not a center. Pure winger.
12 Mar 2015 03:29:11

07 Mar 2015 16:44:40
see there's a reason gms are professional and your at home writing on a computer
07 Mar 2015 17:11:36
Probably but Sather sucks att writing contracts.
Just look att Redden, Richards, Gomez and the list goes on.
5.7 is to much for Staal in my opinion and zucc for 4.5 seems like an overpayment. Giving Lundqvist 8.5 was a misstake aswell not because he isn't worth it. But because it will make it difficult to make a Stanley Cup winning team.
07 Mar 2015 17:33:33
Theres no way Glass gets you a fourth round pick. he's been terrible the last couple of years he may get you a 7th or else the only way I see him getting traded is if he is a cap dump in another trade.
St. Louis will most likely ask for more money.
Soderberg is a UFA and he will be offered a lot more money with more term than that. He would probably sign somewhere else if that's all he is offered
07 Mar 2015 17:36:11
By the way, took a look att your suggestions.
Forsberg and Jones - Kessel and Bozak
Throw away the future just what Nashville wants to do.
Reimer, Phaneuf and TOR 1:st - 1:st overall (McDavid)
That would get you the 1:st overall in almost any draft but this. It's like asking PIT give upp Crosby for a lot less.
So I guess there is a reason why you aren't a pro aswell.
07 Mar 2015 18:37:34
Ok, just want him out, can sens him away for a 7:th for sure!
STL could send a lower pick or some sort of smaller cap dump. If that would do it.
Soderberg is a big gamble but if he wants to win the cup and feels that the Rangers have the best opportunity it's not impossible to sign him at 3.5 a year.
07 Mar 2015 21:02:09
Oh just saw you ment MSL and not the Blues, I think he would play for 3 mill next season (wich might be his last) if I improves his chanses on bringing the cup to New York. There is a reason why NYR was the only team.
07 Mar 2015 02:54:23
Draft day trades
1st rd pick 2016
2nd rd pick 2016
2nd rd pick 2016
1st rd pick 2015
3rd rd pick 2016
Strip phaneuf of the "c" and have the team vote a new captain and lineup looks something like
Ex. Erixon, Finn, granberg
Kadri orielly hertl
Nylander strome lupul
Komarov vermette Stewart
Winnik holland howden
Ex. Carrick, leivo, c.brown, gauthier
07 Mar 2015 14:01:50
That is horrible for the sharks. A pick that will be in the 10-20 range and Tomas Hertl? There's no way you get all of that.
07 Mar 2015 15:03:23
Bruins wouldn't be able to take on JVR's contract and as much as I like O'reilly I would rather get picks and prospects for them and would prefer not to move Gardiner or Panik.
07 Mar 2015 16:21:15
@ prodepth I got to agree I should have made the pick 2016 instead.
Is this still a horrible trade for sharks after a minor tweak.
Do you still think there's no way San jose makes this deal
I would rather the leafs go after picks and prospects than a player like orielly, if it was up to me scorched earth rebuild.
You're right Boston would have to move salary to fit jvr
But if they wanted jvr I think they could at the draft.
I had to throw panik in to try and even out the value,
I think jake gardiner will be really good some day, but for another team.
06 Mar 2015 21:46:24
Oilers at the Draft
TO: Nikitin, (Pitt) 1rdp 2015, Pitlick
Oilers: Hamilton, Subban, 1rdp 2015
Bos: Hall, Gernat
Oilers: Simmonds, B.Schenn, L.Schenn
PHI: Schultz, Purcell, Lander
Then try and sign;
Boychuk or Sekera
06 Mar 2015 23:31:34
I think that Edmonton wins every trade, you have overvalued your teams players IMO.
The edm-tor trade might not be too far off but depending on where in the first round that pick ends up it might not be enough for toronto.
I think the other two trades Favor Edmonton quite a bit
06 Mar 2015 23:46:05
all terrible overpayments by teams not from edmonton.
as a leaf fan I can tell you the phaneuf trade is the closEST, but only because it involves pitts 1st round pick.
07 Mar 2015 02:22:48
Your an oil fan and you think that's a decent return?
The first trade is absolute garbage. no need to comment beyond that.
07 Mar 2015 05:33:34
So don't resign Yak?
What good is Roy without Yak?
What use is Roy without helping Yak develop?
Hall is worth way more bud.
Philly trade is terrible for Philly. Duh.
Oilers aren't giving up their 2 first rounders.
07 Mar 2015 06:54:04
I feel like philly wouldn't even give you Simmonds for that. Don't think the oilers should move hall.
07 Mar 2015 08:23:15
TOR would have to retain salary.
Philly easily says no.
And Oils would prolly want and get more for Hall.
07 Mar 2015 16:43:12
Toronto would have to retain salary@draisaitl
One of the best open ice hitters in NHL and a captain in hockey's biggest market
Dion phaneuf:29, salary 7.000 000
Career 733 games, 117 goals, 396 points
Tyler pitlick: 23, salary .725 000
Career 24 games, 2 goals, 2 points
Nikita nikitin: 28 salary 4.500 000
Career 240 games, 16 goals, 73 points
Late first round pick
Career 0 games played
07 Mar 2015 22:17:27
Ok your an Edmonton obs and your just trying to get them stacked please make trades make sense like are you just trying to get unbelievable votes?
04 Mar 2015 21:33:07
Bos - Chara & 2nd Round 2016
Edm - Eberle
Then Boston can Sign back J. Boychuk in the OffSeason.
Dougie - Boychuk
Sidenberg - McQuaid
Krug - Miller
04 Mar 2015 21:38:52
Not enough for Eberle. Zdeno Chara is 37 years old, he isn't far from retirement. Jordan Eberle is 24 years old and is one of Edmonton's best players
04 Mar 2015 21:41:46
Beacause having a 38yo would be very useful for the oilers
05 Mar 2015 02:38:21
Chelios was the same ages as Chara when Bowman traded 2 1st for Chris, he went on to play 9 more seasons and win two Stanley cups with the Wings. I would not trade Eberle nor two firsts for Chara.
05 Mar 2015 14:00:19
That may be true, but EDM isn't the nearly close to being the same team DET was at the time of that trade. Which I am sure was Cd1's point.
05 Mar 2015 21:03:03
@THEGR81 I agree, I said "I would not trade Eberle nor two firsts for Chara". But it is possible that Chara could return a 1st from a team. But I would not make that trade either. Who knows, Coburn brought PHI a 1st and 3rd while Marek Zidlicky was picked up by DET for only a 3rd. You go figure what each player is worth. Last year Martin St. Louis said he would only play for NYR and he brought SY 2-1st and Callahan. You go figure what each player is worth, I do not know at all.
05 Mar 2015 21:38:10
No doubt. I think Chara could and likely would bring back a very decent return. I was more focusing on him going to EDM, since they aren't really at a point where adding Chara helps them.
With this said, maybe a team like Anaheim make sense. They really don't have a true #1 D.
02 Mar 2015 23:59:09

03 Mar 2015 15:27:19
Some of these are wrong.
You have cory conacher in there twice under NYI add, and Van add.
He went to the Canucks.
03 Mar 2015 19:47:11
@stickboi: Ok, thank for letting me know, didn't catch that when I was typing it.
03 Mar 2015 21:52:11
thanks for that LONG post lol
04 Mar 2015 00:36:07
Not sure what the hell Rutherford was thinking with that Despres trade. Glad to see Lovejoy back in Pittsburgh, but Despres has been great this season
02 Mar 2015 13:15:26
Boston: Brett Connolly
Tampa: 2 2nd round draft picks
To Philly: Gudas, 2015 1st, 2015 3rd
To Tampa: Coburb
Coburb? Who's he?
^ never heard of him? 2026 first overall pick. Good (very) young player
@justgivemethepuck He's seven years old? Must be some kid.
02 Mar 2015 17:15:02
Yeah, he's still developping in a U9 team in Khazakstan. Young but promising
02 Mar 2015 07:30:26
2 trades that were just confirmed
Tampa: (2) 2nd round picks
Boston: Brett Connolly
Stevey Y pulls the wool over Chiarellis eyes and gets 2 2nd rounders for a 3rd liner at best. Good move by Tampa
The next trade counter acts the first one
Philly: 1st, 3rd, Gudas
What was Yzerman thinking? Awful deal IMO. Coburn is worth a 2nd tops. Very bad move IMO.
What an insane over payment by Stevie why. Lol a first rounder a third rounder and a good promising player?
Coburn gets about the same return as Yandle? I thought SY was a good judge of talent!
02 Mar 2015 16:03:18
Thought so, too.
Really disappointed with the Coburn deal.
02 Mar 2015 17:30:45
@Draisaitl_94 IMO SY could have had Meszaros for a 3rd. BTW since October 23 Meszaros is +3 on a team that is -60 for the year. Coburn only plays 2 more minutes per game and they both have 9 pts.
02 Mar 2015 03:15:40
Leafs and oilers
Bernier or Reimer
Leafs and Ducks
Phaneuf + Jokinen
Souray, Etem, 2015 2nd and 3rd
Leafs and Boston
Lupul + Polak
Erikson + Seidenberg
The edmonton trade is a joke bernier would get you way more the Fasth.
02 Mar 2015 03:08:04
Deadline is tomorrow and the Bruins are itching to make a deal, they make a blockbuster deal by sending
F- Loui Erikkson
D- Joe Morrow
G- Malcom Subban
+ 1st round pick (2015)
F- Jordan Eberle
D- Jeff Petry
The move benefits both teams. Boston gets a proven winger who can and will score goals and get you a good amount of points and bring in a right shot defencemen who will really contribute to the team. Edmonton gets a veteran winger who was a 30+ goal scorer in Dallas but didn't work in Bostons system aswell as a young defencemen, a goalie prospect and a draft pick. Not sure if it works with salary cap, but if it does, then I think its a very good deal both ways.
Petry is gone to Montreal now
02 Mar 2015 02:54:10
Oilers are looking at Toronto's Jonathan Bernier.
Trade coming. Bernier is sitting out from the Toronto game and James Reimer is starting.
To Edmonton: Jonathan Bernier
To Toronto: Viktor Fasth, 2016 2nd
To Edmonton: Luoi Eriksson
To Boston: Teddy Purcell, 2015 3rd
That seems sooooo bad for the leafs holy, words can't describe how awful it is. At least make the 2nd this year.
If vermette can get a first and prospect I'm sure vernier can get at minimum the same amount. Fast and a 16 second isn't even close
Many goalies sit out in back to back games
02 Mar 2015 23:45:24
bernier is very overrated, and so was vermette and all these guys. berniers real value is MAX a late first rounder.

To Bos: Cam Atkinson
To Col: Second Round Pick from Philly
To Bos: Petry
To Edm: Bartkowski, Third
Could these trades work? The cap fits from Krejci on LTIR but is the value there?
Columbus yes, Edmonton, not quite.
Also, CBJ is a better way to say Columbus. Otherwise, it looks like Colorado
The demand on Petry is high, since he's one of the biggest names being moved. I feel like Edmonton could get more
Petry is good, but oilers are playing this wrong as usual, Oilers will end up with a 4th and 7th pick
Where is Bartkowski getting his value? Border-line NHL defender and not a whole lot of potential. Boston adds.
