Y’all gonna need three or four more DeBrusks...
No way we'd trade Klefbom or Nurse for Debrusk anyway so that's moot.
Also, Drai >>>> Debrusk
Agree with both, and at the same time the bruins have around 9 or 10 NHL caliber D-men right now At least 2 in Providence who showed they belong in the NHL right now. So I just can't see the Bruins trading for defensemen right now
I don't disagree if there's nothing that seems plausible.
That also doesn't mean we should pursue something for the sake of making a deal.
Honestly if the teams can't find something that works I'm fine with nothing happening.
I agree neither team want to give up their assets, There is no deal to be made here. Lets move on.
JP+ Kassian+ 3rd round pick
The Oilers don't really have room to add a defenseman.
They'll be sitting at nine defensemen on the roster when Sekera returns in a next week or two.
What he said below about the D. Swap out Miller for a forward prospect or simply remove Kassian and Miller from the deal along with the 3rd.
the more you wait by the trade date 25 february the price increases it's time the move
Marchand Bergeron Pastrnak
DeBrusk Kreci Puljujarvi
Lucic JFK Wagner
Nordstom Kuraly Acciari
Cehlarick ( spare ) Frederic
Miller (spare )
Boston: Heinen,Backes, Grzelcyk, and top prospect Vaakanainen
Edmonton : Puljujarvi, Lucic , Larsson
Larsson good d mam hit hard 6ft3
Lucic is a real Bruins better that Backes more young 6ft3
Puljujarvi 20 years old change air is benefic for him big size 6ft4 give the chance
Bergeron and Krejci are going to be 34 and 33 respectively to start the 19/20 season. Do the Bruins have any centers in the system ready to step-up into the top 6 and take the reigns?
I think the Oilers org is going to make a grave mistake and move one of Drai or RNH to satisfy their dumb vision of culture change.
No thanks, your Not dumping that deadweight Lucic on us.
Come back down to planet Earth.
Do you actually watch hockey ? Draisaitl is on pace for 100 points . Even if he ends up with 90 points I can guarantee you DeBrusk will never come close to that . Then there Draisaitl is overpaid . If you were signing a 90 point winger that is also capable of playing as a centre today what do you think it would cost ? Let me guess it all is because of McDavid . So let knock everyones points down that plays with Bergeron or any other top line centre .
A couple of things stand out to me if these teams were to make a deal.
Boston is going to want to upgrade their team this season with an eye on the future as well and the Oilers need to clear cap space.
RNH would make sense to Boston as long as none of Bergeron, Marchand, Pastrnak, Krejci, or DeBrusk are going the other way.
I have no idea what the Oilers would want or if a deal could be worked out there. It doesn't really seem to be a perfect match unless the Oilers are looking for purely prospects/picks just so that they can get out of cap trouble. It doesn't seem likely to me that RNH would be the guy to go.
So if I rule out RNH it seems much more likely that they are looking at a depth forward for the playoffs, someone like Chiasson on an expiring contract who is not going to cost much.
If these teams actually do make a deal I will be more than a little surprised if it is anything more than Chiasson for a pick or bottom 6 forward prospect.
In which case it wouldn't make sense for the Oilers.
I think a Chiasson or Kassian deal is much more likely.
That has to be a record for dumb takes in a post.
He wouldn't. Kassian is getting paid $1.95 Million and has one more year left on his contract. Oilers are looking to move some guys out. Kassian is on the block and is one of those few available Oilers who has some value. Some. Not a ton. How about a 2019 4th ? You have one from the Rangers.
Rieder is another guy who has some value. He is good on the PK and has some wheels. His offense has dried up though so don't expect anything from him in that regard. Last year of contract ($2 million) before RFA kicks in. I'd be happy with a 3rd for Rieder.
Larsson’s worth a loooooot more than that. Dumping Lucic would be nice but it’s not worth downgrading Lars that much.
My guess is you've already vanished from this thread never to respond again.
Dont even suggest things like this. We are stuck with Looch like poop to a blanket. By some miracle, if we could find a team dumb enough to take on that contract, that Looch would waive his NMC to go to, the cost to the Oilers would be so high that it wouldn’t be worth it. The Oilers only hope is a compliance buyout option as part of a new CBA.
Bruins fans and Oilers fans should actually get along pretty well, united by hatred of Chiarelli!
Studnicka's looking ready to make the camp next year. He almost did this year but it came down to numbers and his ability to go back to the OHL.
Well perhaps you misunderstood my post. I could’ve worded it better. Clearly Draisaitl is more valuable than DeBrusk. Let me try again.
Bruins have a gaping hole/ need for a top-6 winger. Trading DeBrusk (whom is cost controlled) for Nugent Hopkins doesn’t work. Nuge makes too much to be the Bruins 3rd line center, and moving DeBrusk out of Boston only to move Nuge to wing doesn’t make much sense either. So that won’t work.
DeBrusk is young and plays hungry and has potential to score 25+ goals. He’s years away from UFA. There really isn’t anyone else in Edmonton who interests Boston enough to even consider moving DeBrusk.
With the exception of McDavid (obviously won’t happen), and Draisaitl. Draisaitl is a center but is young and would be a very good 2nd line center. IF he were made available, the Bruins would then put DeBrusk on the table, and add from there.
But like I said, I’m not a fan of Draisaitl’s contract. And obviously Edmonton would be foolish to shop him at such a young age.
Bruins and Oilers don’t make good trading partners, unless it’s for minor pieces. That’s why most Bruins fans get annoyed with these “How can Edmonton get DeBrusk from Boston?” threads.
It just makes more sense to me anyway. Sure, they could do something surprising, it happens every year, but I keep asking myself why the Oilers would move RNH? I guess he is a desirable player who would be very easy to move to almost anyone as opposed to Lucic who nobody wants and he has a no movement clause so they can't send him anywhere that he doesn't want to go. But really that is the reason why people keep coming up with proposals for RNH, same salary as Lucic and they would get a very good return, of course then they won't have RNH. I still don't think it's likely to happen.
I agree, Chiasson or Kassian seems much more likely.
Both Boston and Edmonton has players that they don't want to give up or its going to cost the other team a lot to get such player. Boston and Edmonton do NOT make good trading partner right now.
No need whatsoever for Kassian. Bruins 4th line is very solid, Kassian not needed.
I’ve never been a fan of Chiasson, but he’s having a decent year. I’d assume he would be someone who’d potentially interest Sweeney as a 2:59pm 3rd line winger if he strikes out at the deadline.
Maybe Chiasson for a 4th?
I can name 15-20 wingers rumored to be available who I’d prefer over Chiasson.
