    Wow!


    Not happy spooner was included but in guessing management didn't plan to sign him this season for what he would have asked

    Krejci gets a winger. His fantasy value just skyrocketed and the odds of a Bruins Stanley cup

    I'm still wondering what is going on inside a GM's mind when he gives away a 1st-rounder for a pending UFA

    Ballsy, I will give Sweeney that.
    Unloading a buyout? Good.
    Trading Spooner? Not so happy about but I guess they made the decision not to sign him next year. They probably feel Donato or someone else is ready.
    Lindgren? Bottom six prospect meh.
    first round pick? Standard for a rental like Nash.

    What would make this trade good- Bruins go deep in the playoffs and some kid next year takes Spooner's place. I am not sure I want to re-sign Rick Nash at 33.

    What would make this trade horrible- Bruins crap out in the playoffs and the kids aren't ready next year.

    Took a beating from the Rangers, not even out of 100% of the Beleskey contract, just 50%.

    Guess this means they weren't willing to commit to Spooner long term. Don't like they gave up that much and still have to eat 50% of Beleskey.

    Eating half of Beleskey's contract and having to give up Spooner is what I hate the most.

    Can't wait for Nash to not fit with Krejci and Debrusk's production to fall off because he doesn't fit with Krejci either. This didn't solve any problems with our lineup or upgrade our talent, it changed the dynamic of the RW but I don't think it made us better in any way shape or form. I can't believe the haul NY got from us for a guy well past his prime, his season high goal total in the last 3 years is 23, the other two he didn't even break 20. He was elite a few years ago, I can't believe the haul we gave up for that.

    Couple things;

    Cap space is cap space, we have a lot of young guys that have already proven themselves and are going to get paid. I think management has had a lot of talks and they are very confident in this prospect group, I think they're done with Beleskey type signings and plan to pay quite a few young guys over the next few years. McAvoy alone will cost a pretty penny


    Spooner hurts because he's a roster player having a good season but that second line blew and I doubt management was going to sign spooner in the off season (he'll could get 5 million from someone if it's not New York)

    Lindgren is a solid character guy that probably could have been a really good middle pair maybe a ceiling of 2 way down the road that I would have liked to see in a spoked B but I'd rather it be him going than a donato or frederic...

    The picks are whatever TBH

    I like this deal today, you never really can expect a good deal not to sting a bit for what you give up, and I'll like this deal a lot more if it gives Nash a jolt and we actually make noise in the playoffs

    If we get bounced by Toronto and no one steps up next year I'll be sitting in a puddle of tears :laugh:

    Lindgren + 1st is a deal I can live with. Bruins are loaded with LHD prospects. But I hate the fact that they traded Spooner AND had to retain salary on Beleskey

    Rick Nash has some work to do apparently. This fan base not giving him a chance whatsoever. Here’s hoping he comes out storming.
    Hopefully Bergeron isn’t hurt

    You call this going for it?
    I am really not sure Rick Nash is even close to being better than Spooner. Especially going forward in the future.
    Sweeney is just simply awful.
    He really has no clue.
    He can't seem to win any trade.
    This one is simply pathetic.

    Don't like this. Nash isn't even close to the player he used to be, there were better options out there that probably would have been cheaper (Hoffman, Kane)

    I like the trade. Bruins get a big-time winger for Krejci. That line is going to be fun to watch. Also:

    I don’t mind Spooner gone, liked the kid, had talent, but awfully soft and would be looking for a steep raise this offseason.

    Not happy they retained on Beleskey
