Pretty much. Those 2 prospects have more value to other teams then they do the bruins. How many years will koko stay in the AHL before fleeing to russia? I bet it's more if the opportunity to play with ovechkin waits at the end of the tunnel.

And if tuuka signs a long term deal, what need is there to have subban, especially if you already have Svedberg and volden who look like future NHL back stops.

Boychuk is a great player, but hes over paid and frankly not nearly as talented as the still only 23 year old carlson. I initially had a 2nd round pick but figured I'd change it to a first assuming caps fans would cry not enough.

This move not only helps the bruins in the short term, effectively trading boychuk for Carlson for this season, but also Long term after chara retires, the bs will still have a very stout defense with hamilton and carlson leading them
