Boston may or may not be able to sign Horton at the end of the year.

They would not trade him for Whitney now, because their First line Wing is more important than a 5th defenseman. I know Whitney when healthy is better than a 5th defenseman, but my point is the Bruins top 4 is pretty darn good, so adding another defenseman would be surplus

So now way Boston would trade horton for Whitney now.

Boston might be able to sign Horton after the season, but honestly if he wants to much money they may have to let him go.

In terms of Whitney, I suspect Boston would only consider signing him in the offseason if he was willing to take a significant hometown discount, and thus sign for less than boychuck money. Maybe even ference money (2 mil). Basically they only consider signing him if it makes financial sense to do so, and allows them to move a different defenseman
