    That's a big negative value package if Eriksson is included. They'd need to add a 1st on top of it to even get anyone to listen.

    Boston Bruins: Could the Minnesota Wild be the perfect trade partners?

    We saw the idea floated on Twitter that maybe David Backes would swap a Boston Bruins jersey for a Minnesota Wild one, if the idea was sold correctly.

    The scenario would essentially be David Backes and some prospect or draft pick headed across to Minnesota, whilst they’d also seek to rid some salary themselves; most likely trade flop, Victor Rask. Overall, it’d give the Boston Bruins a salary saving of $2 million for the next two years, not to mention a player 8 years younger.

    Definitely the kind of deal I can get behind.

    Rask has been a disappointment no doubt. Canes fans 2 seasons ago said it was due to injury and they wouldn't have traded straight up for Krejci.

    But I think this team with Rask and maybe out one of our D prospects (not Vaak) with Backes and a 2nd makes us a better team now and in the future.

    I would be surprised if Don has not inquired. He is a power forward that COULD blossom at Krejci's wing.

    But like Edmonton, Vancouver has tough contracts they need to move. If Edmonton is tying Lucic to Poolparty in any deal then I can see Benning doing the same with Virtanen.

    Thats why you have not heard a lot of certain rumors about teams pursuing either player. Not only is the target player a risk and project, the team that gets them will take a cap problem hit as well.

    Maybe not? It would be a real dollars savings, but they are already close to the cap or over with all the RFAs they have to re-sign. Adding Backes would mean moving a player or two out, and It just seems a strange thing for them to do when he is probably less useful than Victor Rask at a higher cap hit.

    Love the Virtanen idea. These guys with amazing skillsets but poor development or coaching are potential goldmines for a strong culture in Boston.

    I don't know what his deal is in Vegas- is he a money holdout or just wants a different team?

    Summored that his camp wants 4 mill a year and Vegas has no cap room.

    Thanks- I guess he is right to ask in that neighborhood since he could get near that in the KHL probably. On the other hand, would you pay $4 mil for him? I think that is a lot of salary to commit to on an unproven player.

    As I've said before. I would not be ok with tossing a multi-year deal worth 4m+ to any KHL player who has not played on NA ice yet. This is further aggrivatedby his weight which is listed as below 150lbs in some places.

    High risk high reward and the Bruins dont have the cap space to be gambling.

    However, Dom seems high on him so what the heck do I know.

    Rask didn't have a great showing in Minny (23GP / 3pts) and has seen his point totals drop from 48 (2015-2016) to 9 points this past season. Over the last 3 years, their numbers are actually pretty close

    Rask - 202 GP / 85 Pts
    Backes - 201 GP / 91 Pts

    If those two were dealt for one other, Rask would assumes Backes roles as one of the most hated players by fans lol. I mean you see how Heinen is treated lol...well Rask is like a 6'2 center version of Heinen...only he really struggles to produce.

    Plus Rask is "soft as butter" or whatever the catchphrase of the week is :laugh: DIdn't he have injury problems? At 28 I can't imagine he's gone off the Backes cliff just yet :dunno: He's a center, so where does he fit, and has that extra year of $4mil cap hit. So we get out from Backes (yay!) but give up a pick/prospect to save $2 mil. Unless he's bought out. I

    any trade for rask would be to buy him out and eat the 1mil for however long it is. it was likely just pure speculation tbh

    I think he missed around 25% of the season with a hand injury and then another 8-10 games for an upper body injury.

    Vegas saying they have been underwhelmed so far with offers for Gusev mostly a 2nd rd. pick and either low end prospect or a lower pick. I can't see teams lining up to pay a big price for this guy and then pay him $4m a year for someone who has proven nothing yet in the NHL. If you were Sweeney and trying to get this guy what is the most you offer? I would maybe trade for him, but not giving up 1st or 2nd rd. picks in a deep draft, rather trade a roster player and prospect(s) maybe something like Nordstrom + Zboril + JFK.

    Yes I agree, can't see it being more than what I had mentioned, I would not give up a top pick or top prospect for a 27 year old who is unproven in the NHL.

    Seems by his behavior that that’s where he’s going to end up either way. Sounds like he’s demanding the world, without proving anything to it. Imagine how he’ll be if/when he starts putting points up.

    I’ll pass.

    It would have to be a bonus laden contract to reach near that amount.

    Vegas is offering 2 his camp wants 4, even though he hasn't played a game in the NHL

    I don't see anyone paying that, but who knows. EJ hradek compared his talent level to that of Panarin, and he really likes him and he's usually spot on.
