Next trade; Axelson or Kessel out??
Kind of said on and off, but here is a small article
The Bruins continue their search for some outside assistance, but GM Peter Chiarelli hasn't found a deal worth making yet, the Boston Herald reports.
Having gone 1-4-1 in their last six games, the Bruins are starting to slump and key injuries to several key players has played a factor in the team's recent slide.
Chiarelli is working the phones and trying to find the right deal(s) to make, but there doesn't appear to be any teams very eager to find a trading partner.
"We have a couple of things in (the works) but these things have been going on for a month or so," Chiarelli told the Herald.
"They are still ongoing and when either side wants to make it a deal, we might be able to get something done. I'm having discussions.
Chiarelli hinted the team could part with some of its prospects and draft picks, but he'd prefer to move some of his roster players for the right offer.
On Wednesday, the Boston Globe reported the Bruins could part with one of Phil Kessel or P.J. Axelsson in order to fill other holes on the roster.
Kessel is young and has a long way to go, therefore, we should keep him. Axelson has done so much for this team, therefore, it will be hard - for me to say the least - to see him dealt.
