Let's just face facts, the Bruins are going to be tight against the cap next year, and there are going to be some young guys on this team that are borderline NHL players (Bourque, Bartkowski), but they will be making peanuts. I think the Bruins are preparing for the reality that they will have some spots to fill, and they will need to be filled with low-salary guys. Whichever prospects don't get dealt this year will also have a chance to make the club as well.
Ya, some people don't seem to get it.

They want to bring back Ference, give Horton $5M and extend Rask. Can't have it all. Gotta have some contributors who "make the league minimum"-Jake Taylor

Maybe they won't be as good next regular season. They can always use the Savard LTIR money to go out and pick up a scorer or defenseman at the deadline next year though.
