I would entertain any trades for Hilbert and Huml.
I am probably one of the few in favor of the super line of Samsonov, Thornton and Murray, but I think it is what this team needs to do. Unless a trade happens our Bergeron looks completely overwhelmed I think they are seriously considering keeping him. This is what I would do.
When Lapointe is healthy sub him with Zamuner, move Zamuner into either Stock or Grosek's role, or some sort of rotation, but I do like Zamuner and I think he deserves to have a full time spot after Ftorek jerking him around for two years.
I am VERY dissapointed to hear that Hilbert is not performing well at camp. I am starting to really sour on him and have to wonder if he gets *it*. I expected more from Huml, but I still think that once he matures just a bit more he will be fine. Martin Samuelsson is another option, and I dont think he should be dealt. Let him go to Providence and the first time a callup is needed let him know that he will be the guy as long as he is working hard.
I would feel much better about this team if we signed Adam Oates for a year, and perhaps Steve Thomas too. Time will tell.

Buy Out Sheilds
Hilbert jumps around on all lines during the year to fill in for injuries as he gets Lapointes spot on opening night
I also predict the Bruins will make more trades this year than usual it just seems like they have the youngsters there that are ready to move into the line-up and this is the year to do it in.....Rumpy
Thornton -- Murray -- Knuble (why mess with success?)
Bergeron (only based on what I'm hearing here) -- Zinojev/Huml/Zamuner (whoever is better at this point) -- Samsonov
Rolston -- Axelsson -- Lapointe (see line 1)
Stock -- McCarthy -- Zamuner/Zinojev
