I've seen the Backstrom vs Krejci debate properly addressed here; but I haven't seen anybody properly explain how Marchand isn't nearly that much better than Chimera.

I'll say again, I can see that this would improve the Bruins first line; but it would definitely weaken their second line, and their depth (which besides goaltending was the main reason for their Cup victory), and cost them a 1st rounder as well.

I don't think the upgrade on the first line is worth the added cost. No matter how much better Backstrom is than Krejci; and with both being at a .8 PPG average in the playoffs, I'm not sure how significant that upgrade would be.
