Team Explanation
I’d love to see AA, Studs, Senyshyn as the 3rd line next season when Coyle moves to Center the 2nd line.

The next moves are to figure out trading Debrusk, Kase, and Smith for legit 2LW and 2RW.

I would have jumped at the offer at the beginning of the season but Athanasiou has been a pleasant surprise I don't believe he is for sale.

For the last time Yzerman isn't retaining on a $1.8 million salary, if he retains at all it will be players like Nemeth, Bernier, Filppula, Helm contract's closer to $3 million or larger.

It’s funny because before the season started I had multiple bruins ACGM where I signed AA. And everyone called me crazy. He’s a really good player.

No joke, advanced stats I get why he looks like a defensive liability, but he pulls penalties, he’s fast, and keeps the puck on a string. Even last night he fought Krug for messing with Kopi. Love him as a bottom-six guy long-term.

Should trade him now. His value is probably as high as it will get. He's -7 and slow. Bruins need more speed and push up front.

Definitely not from me!!! The kid has potential and his speed is wearing on teams. Perfect 3rd/4th line player who could maybe move to middle 6 with some maturity.

He may not be for sale but for the right deal, you never know.

I completely agree. Not sure how this happens. I hope Sweeney has something up his sleeve.

It’s a 3rd for LGD straight up, but DET is getting a younger player they can negotiate with till end of season which I why I dropped to a 4th. Make sense?

Josh Anderson is a legitimate 2RW and they didn't get him. 2RW and 2LW are few and far between on the market and even harder to acquire.

At that time, the Bruins were trying to stay under the cap hit. It is going to be difficult but the assets can be used and blow all their 2021 picks if they need to.

The Bruins are going through their pool and every one of them is looking better than projected by the media.

I’d rather hold on to the prospect and move the underperforming players like DeBrusk, with the over performing guy like Ritchie, and the, we can fill a need better Grzelyk.

I really hope it’s not anticlimactic this season. Bruins need a rebuild on the fly again.

Yes Kuraly is 3yrs younger but he isn't as good plus he is a UFA so he has no value to Detroit. You are right Detroit could negotiate with him until the end of the season but why would they want to? It would be much easier to just keep Glendening.

Trade away the player with the 5th highest points on your team?? C'mon clearly Ritchie has been able to turn it around pretty well here. He's also an ultimate force when it comes to punchy punchy, which makes him super epic and the teams #1 tough guy, though I would like him to be more assertive at times.

If it makes Boston better then yes trade him. He has played better than last year and has some value. He is like Maroon with Tampa. Physical, decent hands but slow. If Boston could upgrade their forwards without trading him he would have a role with them. They just might have to trade him to upgrade.
