BOS/COL Trade idea:

reports indicate the bruins are desperatly seeking an off. minded dman, so how about this:

to bos: skoula, hinote and moore

to col: gill and lapointe

bos reasons for trade: skoula needs a change of scenary and fast, he is falling out of favor with fans and now the coaching staff, however, the tools are there he just needs to learn how to use them.

hinote would thrive on a line with rolston as his speed and forechecking would mesh perfectly with rolston.

moore would be the B's 4th line center which they currently lack, hometown boy cant catch on permantly with the avs.

col reasons: they need a tough stay at home defender to compliment foote, rightnow they are using 4 offensive dman and 2 stay at home, a mix would improve the overall D-corps.

lapointe would fit nicely on a line with kono and niko which would be capable of shutting down the oppostion top lines and chip in about 40 goals a season.

the sticking point would be his salary: is he a ufa after this year?

if so i see no problem for lacroix to acquire him since the avs will only have 5 players under contract next year,

however if he has another year remaining PL will steer clear unless the B'S pick up at least 1.5M.
