One big thing from a Boston POV: compliance buy outs can only be applied to contracts the team already had. So no trading for a player and buying them out.
For Edmonton: UFA rights are worth a 3rd for the best of them, and I don't see the point in trading for them anyways.
I would easily trade Hemsky and our 1st for Lucic, but if the Bruins lose Lucic, Horton and Ference that changes their teams identity in my eyes and I don't think they'd allow that to happen and Belanger and Eager don't compensate for that. Sneaking in Peverly doesn't really incentivize Boston IMO
Horcoff is a necessary evil. Terrible contract but everything he brings: we need. Face offs, leadership, etc.
