Boston is a contender true... but wouldnt they still be a contender after this deal? What I like for Boston is the trade addresses some issues for next year when the cap is going to be a huge problem for us. Hemsky at 1/2 cost fits the team's budget. Horton resigned as an UFA doesnt. Perry really really really doesnt.
Yes, but I feel like Horton fits better with the bruins. smid would be a nice piece for the bruins, but I don't feel like hemsky fits the bruins style of play. It would make more sense to trade picks/prospects for smid.

Something like koko 1st for smid (this could be way off, not sure how highly the Oliers value smid) bruins shouldn't be subtracting from there cup winning core imo
