In all honesty, with this Bruins team right now, I dont do this.
Like you said, Gryz is a monster. Lindholm is better but Im honestly not sure how much more.
Bjork has been improving each and every game and looking way more comfortable with the puck (and without) Id say Kase is again still better but not by a ton
By making this trade, you're still left without a middle-6 winger that the Bs desperately need (I think Kuraly could work, but him at 4C makes this a much better team) and are basically goodbye to Krug next year. With this being Chara's potential last year, I'm not sure if Vaak/Lauzon/Zboril can give you the minutes you really need for a full 82 games.
If we do end up giving up a 1st for this year, Id want it to be for an all-in type of player. Bergy and the core dont have a ton more years left and with expansion and cap, some key depth is going to have to leave soon. Go after someone big, then next year you're still able to hang onto Krug, let Gryz play with Mcavoy and allow one of the 3 young LHD take 3rd pairing duties. And hopefully one of Bjork/Heinen/Studnicka can make the fulltime move to a top 6 player
