Doofydoof, are you saying you wouldn't trade Lucic or Rask straight up for Yandle?

So you are saying that if Phoenix called and said they would give you Yandel for Luccic straight up, you would not do it?

All we have is McBain, who is looking like next year's Yandel (moderate stretch thought), but that's it.

Our nearest d prospect is Justin Faulk.

Yandel makes your d core ten times better...

And you have a logjam of top 9 forwards, all eagerly waiting to replace Luccic.

Colboune, Seguin, Caron, etc.

nope. i love Lucic. he's game changer that doesnt even have to show up on the stat sheet to be the most effective player on the ice. 22 year old power forward's who are physical beasts with 30+ goal touch dont come around everyday. trust me id love to have Yandle and he's a great player, i layed out a more than fair offer for him early in this thread, but Lucic is more valuable to Boston than Yandle is. he's one of their leaders and a future captain of the Bruins. opposing teams fear him, he's very tough to play against. a rare blend of size, strength and skill in today's NHL. i would only give him up for a handful of players in the NHL and Yandle is not one of them. again please dont take this as a knock on Yandle.

There is a serious case for Yandle as the best defenseman this year.


Lucic is, at best, a top 20 forward. And, IMO, that is being generous.

If you got Yandle for Lucic, then you become Cup contenders. Chara- Yandle becomes one of the best d pairings in the League.


Not only that, but Lucic has never scored 30 goals in a regular season in the NHL. In fact, Yandle is ahead of him in the points department!!

I respect what you are saying, but I really cannot see a valid argument for not trading Lucic for Yandle.

Some of these trade ideas are so bad for boston...

To Boston: Yandle

To Phoenix: Toronto's first(or bostons first and a second) and Mark stuart and Ference

The problem is basically this, if the Bruins trade Lucic they are completely and utterly irrelevant in Boston until they win a Stanley Cup.

Winning is important but the Bruins, as a franchise, have to be concerned with more than that.

Trading Lucic, the hockey player, for Yandle would be ridiculously in favor of the Bruins.

Trading Lucic the marketing tool would be awful. At this point in time it could almost be as damaging to the franchise as the Thornton trade was.

I considered this, however, there is a point where pissing off the fans is worth it to get Keith Yandle for such an insane price. Of course, Phoenix would never consider this, so this will be my last post on the topic.


But the GM's job is to make his team better. Getting Yandle for Lucic makes the B's a LOT better. No one can deny this, and while I am sure many would be pissed off, having Yandle on the backend for a playoff run would probably end that.

Most people accept that Yandle>>>Lucic

Fair enough, but my point is that in Boston, a place with the history of the Thornton trade. A city where the Celtics are favored to go to the finals, the Sox consistently make the playoffs, and the Pats are at the tail end of a dynasty. And honestly, the Celtics and the Sox both have a more prestigious history than the Bruins.

The only thing that would overcome the perceived insult of trading Lucic is a Stanley Cup. Simply improving the team would not be enough.

Hardcore fans would perfectly fine with trading Lucic for Yandle. However, it took a lot more than just the hardcore fans to make Lucic the 7th best selling jersey in the league.

For example, alienating the casual fans could very well mean that the Bruins would not be able to spend to the cap anymore.

Yes, I would take Yandle over Lucic. 10 times out of 10.


Since I am bored, I will go make a poll on it.
