    Not surprised, he hadn't been playing that much. Not that I think he should have played more, outside of that lethal shot of his he really didn't bring that much to the team.

    Got the 3rd back. Maybe this opens a spot for a young player or is another trade on the way?

    Yep. It was a real shame he was hurt and playing hurt last year when he had a real chance. This year he was the victim of the numbers game. Would have loved to see him get one more shot but with the Bruins fighting for 1st spot, they can't really be giving away icetime.

    There is the third back.

    Good move for an AHL player

    I'm happy for him, as much as it must hurt being from the area, he was buried here. Hopefully he'll get a better chance in Florida. Best of luck to him, great kid.

    Vatrano didn’t fit here. He had his chance.

    So the Bruins moved up in the third round and acquired Holden for O'Gara and Vatrano. Good move.

    Well, DS gets his 3rd round back. Vatrano never quite grasped the brass ring. Was probably going to be surpassed anyway.

    Too bad he didn't pan out, but it wasn't happening here. Good luck to the kid in FLA

    Sweeney has balls the size of Alpha Centauri.

    I was done with Vatrano TBH. Didn't see anything in him that was worth holding onto. Nice to recoup the pick, and it gets me interested to see which winger they add at the deadline.

    Hope Frank gets a fresh start.

    Glad we could get something for him instead of trying to sneak him through waivers

    He had his chance, he came in and was a surprise. Think injuries and younger more talented players coming up are why he was moved
