As a Bruin fan I do not want to see them trade Boychuk.

There are Bruins fans who would want to deal him but I get the feeling that management likes him as much as I do and I just don't see a beneficial deal for both teams. Even if Redden were to have a great playoff he won't be replacing Boychuk, maybe they keep him as a bottom pairing guy for next season, but I just don't see them relying on Redden to play in the 2nd pairing, that would be a big mistake in my opinion.

Redden and Ference will be UFAs in the off season, the Bruins will be tight with the cap and probably won't have the cash to give either of those guys as much or more than they are making now and neither are as good as Boychuk. I think it is a lot better to let rookies replace your #5,6, or 7 guys than trying to replace your #3 guy with a guy like Redden. Sure, re-sign Redden, but for the #6-7 spot.
