    question might be, do the B`s have the prospects to move to "get it done"?

    I think right now we aren`t sure, the prospects haven`t played nearly enough pro hockey IMO that an opposing GM would insist on getting to consummate a deal.

    Minnesota isn’t going to help give the bruins cap relief for like likes of a JFK, senyshyn or zboril. Especially when that cap relief not only gives the bruins $2m immediately and potentially much more if the bruins buyout victor Rask for only $1.33 per year against the books.

    Remember Minnesota would have all the bargaining power in this situation. They don’t need to get rid of Rask.

    and now that fenton is gone, it'll be easy for guerin to cut rask loose next summer.
    he didn't make the terrible trade, so simpler to move on.

    While the team doesn’t have to “get rid of” Rask, center is a position of strength for the Wild. It just signed Eriksson-Ek to a multi-year contract. It also has Staal and Kunin at that position as well as Nico Sturm. It’s board even lists old friend Ryan Donato at center.

    Rask can be shifted to wing, I suppose. But Minnesota can afford to include Victor in a trade without seriously impacting its forward group.

    Buyout windows are over for this offseason, no? It would have to be next offseason, so it wouldn't (significantly) help us sign RFAs now.

    Good question. I would think they do. But will they give up Vak and Stud? For the right guys I would

    How much actual salary is Backes paid over the next two years? I’m thinking if we retain on him plus prospects we can get the sens to bite.

    I’m talking about at the end of the season. If Rask came here I would without a doubt give him a one year trial run

    But I bet that Ottawa is not one of the eight teams which Backes will accept a trade to.

    Sens aren't going to take Backes cheaply just out of the goodness of their heart. They (and all other NHL teams) full well know that the Bruins desperately want to get rid of him so they are going to demand a high price to take him. Marleau is still a useful 3rd line NHLer (37p in 82 games is pretty respectable) and the Leafs had to give a 1st to get rid of him, since everyone knew their cap situation. It's not going to be any easier to move Backes, who is barely a 4th liner at this point.

    Or, $7M less than Victor Rask is owed, which explains why Minnesota would balk at taking back run of the mill former 1st rounders as compensation for the Bruins to pay for their mistake.

    They should be able to get a fair amount back for Coyle around the deadline.

    He's a high value player given his position, age, and production, and I believe it'd be beneficial long term for them to start playing guys like Frederic and Studnicka in those minutes. I don't believe DK is going anywhere, and I really don't think they should sign him long-term because the team's core is probably on its last legs; you have to think your picks can fill in where a guy like Coyle plays, at this point. If not, you're done, big time. Just doesn't make sense to re-sign him, to me.

    People have a lot of time on their hands to create new accounts to post stuff like this. At least explain your asinine opinion. I don't even know why I'm taking the bait but I figured I'd do it before other people do.

    You're purposefully misconstruing what I posted, which seems inflammatory, to me. I rationalized my stance on this page, in this thread, a few posts above yours. I also linked it to another poster, just above your post.

    If one of Frederick or Studnicka makes Coyle redundant.....thats friggin' great.

    Try Charlie in another slot or move him. But with him performing well in the playoffs and being generally happy to be a Bruin from every account I've read/seen so far, I expect Coyle to stick around all year.

    If Charlie leaves it will be as a UFA and by his own choice to chase the paycheck, which I am not convinced he will do given how well this "homecoming" has turned out for him.

    That's his choice in the end. I gotta believe the dog and pony show in Ottawa is better than riding the bus in the AHL, his choice.

    Only way I'm trading Coyle is if I get a ridiculous return or he wants ridiculous money to re-sign. I don't foresee either of those things happening.
