<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MisstheWhalers</b></div><div>Yes I watched much of it but getting RNH, Nurse, Jp and Larsson would improve your depth so much.
I really don't think Bruins fans realize how much they need another top 6 forward and sorry but Coyle just doesn't get it done. RNH with Krejci and Debrusk would be a solid line. Plus the overpay trade is the Oilers taking Miller who has little to no value and you Bruins fans overrate Grzelcyk a bit. I agree the original trade as proposed isn't good for the Bruins but if the Oilers added RNH and a 1st you'd be absolutely delusional to not think that's a great trade for the Bruins, your window to win cups is now and getting RNH helps with that big time!</div></div>
I think context is important to consider here. While RNH, Nurse, Larsson, JP, 1st is probably more pure value than McAvoy, McAvoy is so important to Boston’s success now and in the future as a legit #1 RHD that it would take a drastic overpayment to acquire him.
Additionally, while I would love RNH, Boston really needs a RW, not another lefty. So even with an overpayment this trade still doesn’t fill Boston’s most important need. (Unless RNH can play RW?)

Carter - you are not taking into account him being on a better team and possibly on RW on the Bergeron, Marchand line. He is still can be a prolific goal scorer.
Krug - Leading scorer who is still a -5, that can't be ignored, if you score a 100 goals and are -100 you aren't really contributing quality defensive play. He has value because of his points, that's why we should trade him now.
Toffoli - Way better than Heinen, Heinen will never be any better than a 3rd liner, I've been saying this for over a year now. Toffoli would look great on our 2nd line.
Carter's Contract - Valid but I see getting rid of Backes contract a better option because Carter can be amazing if on a good team.</div></div>
If Carter plays RW on the first line, the problem then becomes that Toffoli will be bumped to the third line, in which case I'd rather have Heinen because he'll most likely be cheaper next year. If not, then the team is paying 5 million for a third line center, which is probably too much and doesn't solve the Backes problem. I think either Carter or Toffoli could be a good addition to the team, but not both.
