I can't recall for sure, so if someone remembers this as well, let me know, Didn't Garrioch have an Axellson to Ottawa rumor a couple of years ago? Then didn't he say at the end of last year that Axellson was going to sign with Ottawa as a UFA, right before he resigned with Boston?
I can't see this trade happening because of a few reasons:

1. They are in the same division.
2. Ottawa is probably not thrilled that Boston hired Chiarelli(sp?)
3. Boston can't like the fact that Ottawa gave them verbal permission to talk to Chiarelli, then said they didn't follow proper procedure and wanted compensation.
4. The Bruins seem to really like Axellson and they have what looks like a pretty solid defense and they are a little weak on left wing.

I think if Ottawa really wanted Axellson, they would have to overpay by a lot, they would have to make Boston a better team, does anyone think they would actually do that knowingly?
I seriously doubt it.
Sounds like Garrioch is the one who wants Axellson.
