stuart Percy

I think that Boston would do this trade because:
-they have two good centres in krechi and seguin and bozak makes a great third line centre
-they had great success with toronto`s first round picks in the past in the past
-they are getting rid of cap
-their prospect pool is not very stronge
-carter Ashton fits Bostons type of player
-Gardiner can be seen as higher value as Hamilton due to the fact that he has potiential but has also proven it at the NHL level

Toronto would do this because
-Bergeron would be a true number 1 centre
-Rielly can take over Garderner`s spot on the roster
-Rielly and Hamilton will have some chemistry due to the fact that they are paired up at the world juniors
-Bozak is considered useless to them if they get bergeron because there is no space for him

Classic quantity for quality post, gotta love em.

The Bruins are not trading Bergeron (selke winning center who has played his whole career with Boston, he loves Boston and Boston loves him back).

And we are not trading Hamilton away, period. He is our only D prospect that has first pairing potential and he is one of the best D prospects there is.

Point is, we aren't trading Bergeron and Hamilton away for a bunch of crap we don't need, Boston is fine with the cap. Chiarelli will make a move or two if he has to by trading away a guy like Kelly or Ference before trading away our young star center in Bergeron. Bergeron is the most consistent forward we have and is thought to be the captain here once Chara retires. HE'S NOT GOING ANYWHERE AND HAMILTON ISN'T EITHER.
