For Boston, they've possibly lost Savard for the season, and could very well be looking to add a rental at the center position. Offering Krejci and a mid-level defensive prospect would be a decent offer, but would Boston do it? Not sure. Boston does have a glut of centers / center prospects, and even without Savard (IF he retired, for example) and Krejci they can field a good lineup next year;
Those four all are / can play center, then you have the prospects who could push for a spot next year;
If Savard comes back, Wheeler goes back to Wing. If he doesn't, Wheeler plays C and Caron would definitely be given a spot on the roster (he played great in his call up this year).
David Krejci & Jeff Penner
Penner doesn't bring anything to the organization, it would have to be a Kampfer, Bartkowski, Alexandrov
