    Okay, explain it. Justify it.

    In one corner you have a contender that’s retaining salary (right there you’re cut off), and then trading a valuable young part of their team off a down year that just happened to be in a pandemic shortened season that didn’t have a pre season, or a full off season. Ya, something tells me they aren’t going to give him away for free.

    In return, the bruins get, for a retained Jake debrusk: Cooper Marody, a guy who I don’t think you knew about before today. Former 6th round pick, 24 year old AHL nobody. So, nothing. Then you got this 25 year old d man who would probably be 7th on the bruins LD depth charts, so, also nothing. And a 3rd.

    Debrusk, 50% retained, for a 3rd. Thats one of the most lopsided trades anyone has ever made on this site. The cost of the retention alone is more than a 3rd.

    You're an angry little elf. Boston's not winning the cup anytime soon so you can throw that little idea out of your head. Marody is better then half the Bruins roster he pushes for a top 6 spot now. Same with Laggeson. Bruins get instantly better while also getting a 3rdhanded to then for hardly retaining anything for a couple years. Debrusk is playing on the 4th line. The Bruins have failed him. Let him play for a team he'll actually get minutes on and enjoy playing on, seeing that he's from Edmonton.

    Marody is an AHL player. Laggeson is an AHL player. This deal is horrid.

    Then, why you trade them?

    Lol, lay off the weed. Marody and Lagesson don’t even make the roster much less push for top 6 and top 4. The idea that Marody would push for top 6 in Boston where Craig Smith, a proven 20 goal scorer, is their worst in the top 6, meanwhile he cannot break into a lineup that plays stiffs like Haas, Archibald, Kahun, Shore, Chiasson, Kharia regularly is obscenely laughable.. Lagesson would be 12th on the depth chart. Lol.

    Debrusk has not been playing on the 4th line. I believe he’s done it 3 or 4 times this year total. He’s had 2 injuries, 2 positive covid tests, mentally drained, and playing his off wing which he struggles mightily with. He is better off playing 4th line LW than middle 6 RW, at least he is on his natural and comfortable side. He was moved there to try to get him jumpstarted.

    There is fairly high chance he’s moved in the offseason. But it won’t be for spare parts. They’ll just hold him if that’s the case. You want Debrusk in the offseason. Try Lavoie and either Kemp/Jones/2nd as the 2nd piece.

    The Bruins can absolutely still win the Cup within the next two or three years. That lineup is loaded and Rask is a top-3 goalie when healthy. The Bergeron line aside, the Hall trade has been a perfect marriage for this team, and the D-Corps has a revamped edge to it with McAvoy, Grzelcyk, Carlo (returning soon), Reilly, Lauzon, Miller, and Clifton as a 6th/7th. Don't be surprised to see the Bruins in the final four this year.

    I’m an Oilers fan and that Trade is ridiculous. No you would need a good prospect and at least a 2nd round pick to get Debrusk. Marody a top 6 forward? He won’t play top 6 in his entire career. I’m not convinced he makes the NHL. He’s had one good year playing with 2 of the best players in the AHL on his line. And you underpaid every free agent so that’s not even close either.

    Marody - 24 yrs old, 6 NHL games, 0 points
    Lagesson 25 yrs old, 25 NHL games, 2 points

    Out of all the ridiculous things said on this website, saying that those two players are better than half of the bruins roster is by far the most ridiculous.

    If anyone has watched them play one game in the last 2 weeks i think you can easily say they have a shot.

    I'm worried, too. You never know with concussions. However, Cassidy has said that he's close to a return to the lineup before the playoffs start.

    Ok... well technically he played 22 minutes against NJD and then played a period against Pitt the next game. Semantics, i know, nevertheless, just telling you what i saw. He's traveling with the team, and will play one of the games against NJD. Let's see how it goes from there.
