Plus they have 19.75 coming off the books after next season (Chara, Bergeron, Ryder, Sturm) and can probably sign whatever #1 defenseman they want. Having an expensive Tim Thomas as their backup is the only hiccup.
Getting the #2 or #3 overall pick is going to be nice, but Chiarelli isn't doing the Bruins any favors with the deals he gave Lucic and Ference. I'm not sure how great Boston's future is. My hunch is that they'll continue to be mediocre, but squeek into the playoffs due to the relative weakness of the East. If whoever they draft with Toronto's pick turns out to be a franchise player I'll take that back, but there is a lot of uncertainty in Boston's future.
