San Jose doesn't really have anything Boston would want. They are right at the cap, so good and cheap players like Pavelski or Setoguchi can't be traded. They are very thin on prospects, so that's not really an option either. That leaves the core-players, who are all making 3+ million per year. If the Bruins had cap-space for that, they would use it to sign Kessel, the difference is not that big.

That being said, if the Sharks could get Kessel, the last thing I would do is trade him for Heatley. Heatley is better, but his talent was never the problem, his contract is.
