Vladar loses his waiver exemption next year. Rask will re-sign and Swayman is not going back to the AHL. If they don’t trade him, they lose him. It’s that simple.

Ritchie is heading into arbitration with career-high numbers playing on the second line and top PP unit most of the year. The odds of him playing that role in the future in Boston is slim. The Bruins risk overpaying for a guy without a good fit in the lineup.

Moore is a serviceable defenseman, but Cassidy won’t play him, making him an overpaid backup.

So what is the big deal? Three expendable players and the Bruins get an elite defensive center for the fourth line and a pick that will fall between 34-38. The Bruins desperately need to re-stock the system and a high second-round pick helps. They could very well get two players this year with a first round grade in this scenario. And then they get a veteran anchor for the fourth line, an upgrade to Kuraly in my opinion, who can help develop the likes of Lazar, Frederic, and Studnicka into dominant two-way players
