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.
The Bruins aren't going to swap defensemen. They gain nothing that way. If they are going to trade they will trade one to their forwards for help on defense. No way they pick up a guy (Malakhov) who might only have a year left in his career (assuming a lockout).
