The Bruins and the Rangers both need help on D which is what makes them poor trading partners.
Actually, I think a deal like that might not be so bad, if we ate more salary. Malakhov makes 3.5 mil this year and is in the last year of his contract. The Bruins currently have McGillis, Gill, Moran, O'Donnell, Brennan, and Jillson on D until Boynton signs. Aside from Jillson (a rookie), they have NO ONE on D that can move the puck. Malakhov might be a nice fit, if they want him. The only reason the deal even has a chance of going through would be because Gill isn't as good as some people on this board think he is.
