    With things as they stand, Bruins can't really be in on it anyway, but he is an intriguing player. If by some miracle Backes and one of Moore/Miller is moved, he might be worth taking a flyer on.

    I see Backes is working on his speed so maybe he becomes the player we expected

    They could fit him, but is it worth moving out a player to bring him in when he hasn't played an nhl game yet?

    I'd say yes - this guy is going to be Panarin good. Just look at his stats last season vs. the next highest guy on his team, I believe he outpaced them by 30-40 points. The trouble is the guys they need to get rid of no one is going to take for free, especially with the prices McPhee charged people during the expansion draft to not take their guy.

    Why "dump" Zboril?

    I'm assuming you mean "dump" Zbroil into a deal to rid of Backes but it's going to take more than that, he's not made an impact at the NHL level yet.

    I think Zboril is a player that Ottawa would be interested in.

    Zboril, sure. But probably not at the cost of bring on Backes. They have plenty of cap space, but Melnyk doesn't want to spend the cash. While Backes is cheap this year (cash) he is owed $3M+ next season.

    Although now that I think of it...

    Who are the natural C on OTT?

    Tkachuk
    Tierney
    Pageau
    White

    Would Backes make a good mentor for Tkachuk...who grew up watching him and is friends of the family?

    Zboril, Backes plus maybe something else could entice Melnyk. Maybe he'd even give us a useful piece back.

    Zboril and Chabot were pretty dominant together in the Q.

    Risk? Well worth it. If he bolts back to Russia then he and Team X will have to mutually agree to terminate his contract because of the NHL/KHL understanding on signing players already under contract. And the cap hit magically (ok not really magically) disappears.

    So, is it really a risk?

    Here's the link https://www.tsn.ca/report-underwhel...gas-golden-knights-rfa-nikita-gusev-1.1335913

    Not eligible for bonuses, and there are teams willing to pay it.

    I say bring him on!! They can make the cap work at $4 million and still sign Carlo and McAvoy.

    Backes for Zach Smith makes so much sense. With a sweetener from us. I believe Backes is actually owed less actual dollars then Smith. Smith could really be an asset on the 3rd line. Gritty. Tough. Plays center and wing. Good on the PK. He actually had a positive +\- going into March which on that team is amazing.

    Don't sell yourself short. Just because I like a player, well that's no reason for anyone else to like that player.

    I don't think he could play with Bergeron or Marchand, but he could play with Krejci and DeBrusk. And he could improve that second PP unit so the Bruins wouldn't be so dependant on the first unit.

    If he is that good the Bruins need to do it. The top 6 winger hole is literally the only flaw in this roster and has been for years. Quick fix.

    Exactly, and you aren't going to find a player at less than 4m that will be a better fit there. I think Gusev is going to be a stud next year.

    I think Vegas is expecting anyone who wants to trade for Gusev has to take a big contract off their hands at the same time.

    You can probably get 2 really good players for a reasonable price maybe Stasny or Smith. But who do we throw into a deal like that they want.
