    Previous thread: Proposal: - Bruins Trade Proposals X - Mod in OP

    Please stay on subject and try to have some reasoning behind your proposals.

    Why team(s) do this, CAP, NMC, NTC, etc....


    If the few of you insist on flaming each other take it to PM with each other.

    This is NOT to discuss past drafts.

    Do not post rumors without reputable link or be prior vetted as an insider.


    Going forward there will be warnings and bans.

    With this logic everyone should trade their 20 year old dmen for 35+ players because history says so. McAvoy should be in zero trade talks. NONE. ZIP. ZEERROOOO....

    We traded Seguin for scraps and now he scores on us every game. We have no pieces left from that trade and now have a small window for a cup with no sure thing center ready to go in the system, but a good number of prospects who COULD step in one day.

    We trade McAvoy for a run or 2, we then have no #1D in the system ready to go when Chara (and according to your proposal Keith) retires. IF and only IF we have to trade Mc for some reason it's for a #1C of similar age (Point, Dria, Mack, Eichel, etc.)

    You still aren't selling moving McAvoy at all whatsoever. If anything it's even more reason to keep him. I appreciate that you try to keep your deals cap compliant and you obviously have a lot of passion and thought towards these moves, but I just philosophically think the team is not at the place they need to be to make moves like this. McAvoy is the defacto #1 in the upcoming years. Yes, he could regress. Or he could get better. If I had to guess one or the other, I'd pick the latter. Keith's best days are behind him. Let's not add more aging pieces to a core that needs more prime time players instead of 30+'s.

    This team as constructed, adding Keith/Saad and subtracting McAvoy+whatever, I still don't think does much different. I'd rather suffer the growing pains and continue to build upwards. We aren't a top tier team. Honestly, in my opinion, look at the deals made 2007-2010, we're closer to the 2008/2009 teams than we are the 2011-2013 teams. We should be moving guys out that aren't in the plans, and getting players that will be hitting their prime within a few years. Build forward, I think it's an awful idea to add vets by giving up high end youth.

    If you want to compete in this league you need franchise talent, Pasta& McAvoy are easily, by far the best bets from the u25 group.
    Even with those 2 they are lacking 1 from the Center group.

    Let's not go backwards when the goal should be to go forwards.

    Not to mention McAvoys is better player today than Keith.

    Bruins wouldn't be getting the Stanley Cup MVP Keith anymore, just the past his prime Keith.

    Keep McAvoy and send Heinen something for Saad instead.

    One random player I’m interested in is right wing Pontus Åberg of the ducks. He is leading their team with 11 goals and isn’t even in their starting lineup..there is no place for him. I’ve watched some of his highlights, which is really all I have time for and the kid has some serious skill...itching for an opportunity in a top 6 spot.

    He’s shooting at a high percentage so you could look at that but I wonder if he could be had for a pick, it may be worth a gamble for now and in the future.

    I think of like how the Caps got Kempny last year for like a 3rd. It’s not always about the big deal but the schrewd ones.

    I like this idea. I was also thinking Pirri from Vegas could be a simar option. Guy has been up and down 6 times just today for the minors and is sitting on 11 points in 9 games. Problem is he shoots lefty but same situation where there isnt a good spot for him and he's just juggled around the line up.

    Aberg would be perfect as a 3rd line center. He played super for the preds in their playoff run a couple of years ago when injuries hit them. He stepped up and played extremely well. Couldn't believe when the Oilers actually put him on waivers earlier this year. I was hoping he'd slide and Boston would pick him-up then.

    I don’t dislike Ferland, but he’s a UFA, and I can see him looking for a big pay day. As I already said, I’m getting a Beleskey vibe here and the B’s don’t need another contract like that.

    As far as Heinen goes, I hope he stays, but if he goes, I want someone better than Ferland coming back. Move him (plus) for Anderson or maybe even Wood, because both of those guys are younger than Ferland.

    Could Carey be a forward acquisition for Providence to account for another forward soon to be dealt?

    Re Ferland

    Pretty high cost for a player that may be looking to make bank in his next contract.

    Maybe:dunno:

    But I also believe Bjork had a setback and is going to be out longer than they originally expected.

    This is highway robbery a first rounder and a prospect for a 3 month rental???
    Ferlund is a 20 goal scorer and 40-45 point guy and a UFA at the end of the year.
    At these prices, what would Heinen and JFK get us.....a top 10 first round draft pick for either one?

    Prices always begin high. In the end Ferland will probably go for a second and a mid level prospect. What is a shame if your a Cane fan, considering what Wadell gave up to get him. He totally got fleeced on that deal.

    As a fan of Ferland, that is insanely hefty. Pass.

    I still honestly don't see the Bruins making an impact move. They'll trade for their typical mid 30's depth guy and call it a day.

    This trade is awful. McAvoy is a young buck. Keith is cooked even at 50%. Saad is a 20 goal scorer who makes 6m per. Saad can be had for much less than McAvoy. And there’s zero need for Keith, he’s a cap dump
