I would be shocked if there was a trade today.

Absolutely astonished.

Thought he's been one of few "ok" players for the Devils this season

Why would we make trades for even more 3rd liners?

Wheeler isn't a first liner, and we have solid second. Where would he play?

And why would he trade hickey when his value is low? Just sounds all sorts of wrong here

Wheeler can play all three positions on any line. He could slide into a first line role if need be. To get him for Hickey would be a coup for the Kings.

That's the problem, we dont need "if need be" people .. We need a legit 1st line lw.

Wheeler is a decent depth guy, but we could do better packaging hickey + for a legit 1st liner.

Good point, Kings need a proven LW, not a kid who MAYBE could put it together.

Eklunds latest is saying not Wheeler....maybe Sturm for a smaller package and we wait till he returns?

It's not Wheeler and there is no way Boston trades Wheeler straight up for Hickey.
Sturm or Ryder might be more realistic options.

Why is everyone assuming Hickey? I'm pretty sure in every draft for the past 5 years or so (except last year with Seguin), the Kings have drafted before the Bruins. It could really be anyone from Manchester

And there is no way the Kings trade Hickey for one year of Ryder or an injured, NTC wielding Sturm.

It would be pretty funny if the two sides made a deal today of all days.

What do you think David Booth is worth? Schenn + Hickey + (1st)?
He would be a perfect LW.
I'm very bad at comparing values..

I like Booth but he's not worth 3 first rounders in my opinion.

What if we change the 1st to a 3rd or something? Or just Schenn + Hickey/1st + Hickey.

could this go back to D.L's days in SanJose and the player be Sturm. I don't have time to look up who was Bostons G.M back then and if it was D.L that drafted Sturm

Wow, I heard we tried to nab Krejci. I can't imagine the Bs moving him at all.

And all that I have heard on offer from us (or being asked from us) are kids and mid round picks.

The B''s like it or not need to shed over $4m (closer to 5) in salary and it is hampering their ability to make a tough deal.

+ what? You act like these guys grow on trees. Hickey on his own doesn't have a lot of value at this point, so you'd have to add in something significant to get a top winger.

I don't think anyone believes Hickey would net a top liner on his own. We'd have to add a player and a first rounder.

It depends on the team and the top line LW.

Hickey is a highly touted PMD and they don't come along as often as people think. That said, the bruins are over the cap and gonna have to do something to remedy that problem. The remedy cannot bring them back salary. Nobody is going to want their scrubs. That makes the choices pretty slim. Draft picks which promise nothing but the promise of a player who might work out, valuable for certain. The next and only real option with any certainty is by getting the best prospects available.

Hickey falls into that category. There are others out there for sure but in todays NHL a highly touted prospect actually can bring you back top line talent under the right set of circumstances.
