Simmonds has not had a great season either...the wildcard here might be the locker room impact or the "rumors" of Simmonds off-ice antics. Not sure if any of that is true but where there is smoke...
It actually may cost Hickey and Simmonds to get Wheeler. Boston should have to pay LA to take Ryder and Savard.
If the Boston rumors have some truth to them, then... That's interesting. I don't see Savard waiving his clause to come out West and to a team that is fighting for a play off spot when the Bruins are sitting second in the East. Not going to happen. Guys like Ryder and Wheeler would be of some help, but the team is full of guys like that. The only top guy that they have that the Kings would be lucky to have, is Krejci. I don't know how available he is, but I imagine Lombardi and co. scouting so many Bruins games because of a player of his caliber. They know all about Savard, Ryder, and Wheeler, so...
