<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Xspyrit</b></div><div>DeBrusk last 2 seasons : 10 goals, 24 points in 72 games (0.33 PPG)... He plays 14-15 minutes per game so I don't think it's a lack of opportunity. Even his possession metrics are not very good. His QO is quite high so unless he'd want to sign for much lower... I'd much rather have Thomas Chabot best friend Colin White who is still very useful when not scoring by being solid defensively and having good possession stats. He had a pretty solid rookie season offensively but hasn't had the same role since (he's not a top-6 forward) but stil has produced more than DeBrusk (~0.4 PPG)
Foligno 3.8 AAV next season vs Del Zotto 2.0 AAV next season : Who would you rather have? MDZ has 17 pts in 18 NHL/AHL games this season, maybe if sheltered in a strong system, he could even be a bit useful. We love Nick but he's going to be 35 y/o next season, he's getting too old/slow for the NHL
Parker Kelly is a short term 4th liner, maybe could be useful for a season or two. But yeah I think we'd take the 5th here
Sens have even less reason to do that, unless they think that DeBrusk would turn it around in a big way in Ottawa? TOI would become hard to get too
Tkachuk, Formenton, Stutzle (?), Paul, Greig, Crookshank, Sokolov, Jarventie, Lodin
Sens would rather have White and not have Foligno's contract. But everything is possible as Dorion makes a lot of bad decisions.</div></div>
White is a 3rd liner with bad contract…keep him.
Much rather have Foligno than Del Zotto, thanks for asking. It’s not even close. Nick’s contract sucks too but come playoffs he’s the type of player they have been lacking. Del Zotto is just a depth d and not a very good one.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TheMooterus</b></div><div>Not saying "high end prospects." Depending on who the prospect is that's being added, a 2nd prospect (or pick) may need to be added for value. If I'm being honest, I think the only "high end" prospect in the Bruins pool is Fabian Lysell (who won't be involved in a hypothetical Klingberg trade). After that, you've got guys like Studnicka, Lauko, Vaakanainen, Beecher, etc. that are all decent prospects, but I wouldn't consider any of them "high end"
DeBrusk is more a cap dump & reclamation project than a value piece at this point, so a late 1st & a couple of the guys listed above (again, not Lysell) should be on the table IF Boston were serious about trading for Klingberg, which I doubt they are. As stated by another user above, Boston needs LD help, not RD.</div></div>
You forgot Lohrei as a high end prospect.
Just for comparison. When Boston traded Bourque (along with Andeychuk) to Avs the return was 1st/Rolston/and 2 low end prospects.
Similar move wouid be JK and Radulov for 1st/Debrusk/Senyshyn/Hughes.
Something along the lines of 1st/Debrusk and low end prospect is a reasonable expectation. 1st/Zboril would be better for Dallas with Boston finding a way to make $ in a separate deal.
People on here have gotten incredibly unrealistic with expectations of returns as of late.
Boston should not be interested but they are. 🤷🏻♂️
