High risk, high reward. I'd guess he'd make JB redundant not room for both cap hits. WHich means its a huge risk. *Boychuk is more durable than basically any other NHLer even a puck to the face hardly kept him out couple years ago so what if a healthy Whitney is better a healthy Whitney is an oxymoron.
I have to say, while I am not a fan of Boychuk's contract...we know what we have in him as a player on this team. And while he didn't have the best playoffs in 2012, he was a large factor in the cup run. I'd stay with JB if it had to be one or the other.

Not sure if the OP is suggesting a trade for Whitney (cap space limitations), or that the Bruins sign him in the "off-season" *snicker* to a $4.5M/yr deal.
I think $5M for his services is a little high-risk for my blood. But as a player, I'd love him on my team. If it was possible to put his health issues aside, his game would be great here. Big fan of Ryan Whitney.
I have always liked him even though he has not quite/consistently lived up to his potential. I know a lot of people don't care much for him but I think he would be a nice contrast to what the Bruins currently have on the blue line. If healthy and if not asked to do more than he's really meant to do, I'd be glad to have him. 2nd pair. The young Oilers can use him though, he's a veteran presence with some good playoff experience.
