Peverley would be exactly what we need, but even if the cap drops I doubt Boston will be moving him.
Maybe a guy like Stajan from Calgary or Bolland from Chicago if the new CBA makes them available?
FWIW I'm in the hang on to McBain boat, at least for the time being. Until we have a guy that has shown that they can handle the NHL game when they get a chance it would be foolish to move out a proven top 4 dman at this point. In a couple years when we have McBain, Pitkanen, Faulk, Harrison, Gleason, Murphy, and some more prospects knocking on the door? that's when it's going to get interesting to see what we can get for who.
