The Bruins have enough young talent that they wouldn't miss those picks too badly and would probably be competing for the Cup all four years, so Cup parades rather than entry draft's would probably be the focus in Beantown. And at some point, I wouldn't blame Yandle for wanting to secure his future. The longer this ownership issue drags out, the more realistic this seems.
Well said. It is a very interesting option to consider...
