We're obviously ignoring the fact that he just re-signed with the team for four years which includes a no-movement clause. So if you expect to have a serious conversation about what it would take to get Patrick Marleau, you better start thinking of packages that would work where the B's are trading Chara the other way because there is no other way that anyone should be considering anything less.

And if you're not expecting a serious conversation, we might as well just close down the thread now.
Everytime some asks about our players in trade and we respond with "we need your top-4 defensemen" we get laughed at. Why don't people get that the only thing we need is a top-4 defensemen better than the ones we already have, so if we are making a trade, that's what we want.
