    McAvoy and Carlo will be Bruins for a long time.

    Trade Carlo and you're looking for a Carlo later on. Teams salivate to have young right handed dmen like the Bruins do.

    love tuch, and know the bruins did too. they tried to get him before the expansion draft.
    although brannstrom is now in ottawa, your point remains. carlo would be a heck of a
    piece for them, as he is for boston. probably makes too much sense to work.

    So you expect what, the Bruins or the other team (in this case the Devils) to be adding? I don't see Carlo as a top pairing defenseman, unless he's complimenting a legit #1 LHD (which Boston doesn't have at the current time). McAvoy is that already, so why even think of dealing that? You're dealing a sure-thing on a hope at that point. Why not just move Carlo then? And let me preface by saying it's terrible to move both. They have their RHD Top 4 set up for years to come. No reason to **** with it.

    You can have both. I want both. The whole fan base should want both. We need to stop being that fan base that always wants to deal talent away. I don't understand why our top players, besides Bergeron, become the constant players to move. Also, it's terrible to move a top roster player due to the cap. I want the #1 defenseman over anything that would realistically be returned in a McAvoy deal. Christ, you proposed Taylor Hall earlier... That helps **fart noise**

    No I'm not? I'm making him out to be what he is. A young stud #1 defenseman. On the italics, what player doesn't? Christ, you want move McAvoy out because you believe Carlo is a top pairing capable RHD, but he's had plenty of defensive lapses in his career, and offensively? It's a constant "lap".

    This is even more of a reason to keep McAvoy, because if Krug does leave via FA/Trade, you're without your best PP QB, and offensive defenseman. Guess who is the second best offensive defenseman on the team is? Charlie McAvoy....

    Cap world requires navigation and a skilled GM. I don’t know the solution to retain Carlo Macavoy and Krug. It’s not impossible but it ain’t going to be easy and it will certainly come at the expense of losing a key player.

    Don’t forget the bruins have a very decent crop of young d men lurking. They can afford to trade any one of the three in question.

    Tuch is intriguing, and seems like he could really solve the RW issue. I'm still not sure i'd trade Carlo for him though. Understand you have to give to get, but out of the D we could trade for help, not sure he'd be the one.

    Now if you want to tell me we'll re-sign Krug, then i could see Gryz as that option. Not sure if he'd get it done.

    I'd probably do that, but I'm not sure if that's good value or if Vegas would.

    Krug is the guy that I move before the other two. The Bruins do have a very decent crop of young D lurking, but none of them are right shots. I don't like moving any of these proven guys for a crop of potential. They have a total of like 20 NHL game played between the three you're referring to. Now, there's a good chance that one of them will get a chance early on to prove what they have seeing we have some injuries.

    I want more than Tuch to pull the trigger on that
    trade. Legit top 4 shutdown Dmen who have played on #1 pairing are more important than a #2RW.
    Don't get me wrong, I like Tuch but
    Carlo has more value than that at this point.
    Carlo and a 2nd round pick for Tuch and
    a 1st I would do.

    Carlo is purely one dimensional at this point but I can understand your thinking. I actually made this deal in my sim league a couple months ago (dealing Carlo) and while tough it seems like it would make a lot of sense IRL as well. Issue for Boston though is replacing Brandon which may not be easy

    When a team has a player of the level of Krug, you move him only for a massive overpayment, otherwise you spend years trying to find a player that brings you what a Krug does. There is not a dman on the Bruins roster that brings what Krug does, anyone who thinks otherwise must have missed last seasons playoffs.

    He also is on record for taking a discount wanting to stay in Boston.

    Good thing the Bruins have the best 1-12D depth in NHL.

    Chara
    McAvoy
    Krug
    Carlo
    Gryz
    Clifton
    Moore
    Miller
    UV
    Kampfer
    Lauzon
    Zboril

    Remember last year when Lauzon stepped in as the #1 playing near 30min for some games when everyone was injured?

    That’s how good the Bruins are.

    Leafs fans insisted he was holding off to see what was left after Marner signed because he loved playing for the fans that booed him off the ice
