The bruins get a proven scoring threat for tehir 2nd line and d-man to fill the void left by jillson.

I now bruis fans are going to scream, but the reality is thye get the best player in this deal by a country mile and move a contract hassle. Win win for the bruins.
This deal doesn't make a whole lot of sense for the Bruins. They definitely need a second line center, but the one other thing they need is a puck moving defenseman. I really don't think they would trade their best offensive d-man, even if it meant getting a quality second line center back. I could definitely see the Bruins moving Hilbert, but I don't think Cory Cross would help the team very much. They already have Gill and O'Donnell as defensive d-men. If I'm the Bruins I'd do Milan Jurcina and Hilbert for Comrie in a second. Whether the Oilers would do it or not, is a totally different question.
