4 potential 30 goal scorers isn't good enough for a team's top-6 that's defensively oriented? Peverley is one of the best 3rd line wingers in the league, too... The only upgrade we could really use is a first line sniper, and it's not even as necessary now that Seguin could step into that role. We have a very balanced top-6.

Our defensive prospect depth without Dougie is complete garbage. We're not trading him. Yakupov is a terrific prospect but he's not worth our two best. You could make a very strong argument that Dougie is one of the most important player in our organization, and he hasn't even played an NHL game yet. He's that valuable to us. Yakupov would never reach, or be able to exhibit his full offensive potential in a system like the Bruins'.

Maybe it's close value-wise, but we value a potential #1 defenseman much more than a forward at this point. Chara isn't going to last forever.
