Bos-Chi
 
To Hawks
D Adam McQuaid

To Bruins

wasn't mcquaid among the top ahl defensemen last year

I don't think the Bruins do this.

Right now McQuaid is the Bruins top minor league defenseman. They might have people with more upside, but McQuaid is the guy who would be the first player called up from Providence in case of injury, and really he even has a shot to make the Big club to open the season as a #7 defenseman

I think there is a real good change that McQuaid plays 20-40 games in Boston next year as an injury fill in

Why would the Bruins do this?

Bertrams small.... And he sucks. McQuaid is a big, physical D-man with decent offensive potential as well.... But I guess the 7th makes up for the fact that Bertram was sent down to the ECHL and McQuaid outscored him in the AHL.

I know Boston doesn't have much prospective depth at the wings but we don't have much at defense either. Trading away a defensive prospect for a winger prospect doesn't really solve anything for us.

Boston ain't trading away any defensive prospects. They may have the worst defensive prospect pool in the NHL. If anything they will be trading for defensive prospects.

^^^ Yep. With Hunwick being promoted to the B's and trading Lashoff, defense is where we need to stockpile now. McQuaid will be staying here.

And if we get rid of Kessel, we're going to need at least a top9 forward. But a replacement would be best. With Kobasew clicking with Bergeron and Ryder clicking with Krejci... if we lose Kessel we'll need to hit the trade market for a 30+ goal scorer which isn't easy to land. I hope Chia gets Kessel signed soon, I'm about to start pulling out hair!

Bruins needs depth at D far more than they do at RW.
