I would give up more than a 1st for Briere.

All he does is make magic happen in the playoffs.

Andrew Alberts for a 4th and Ned Lukacevic in '08?

The only way Boston moves for a player on a contract past this season is if they're trading Kelly or Peverley (who both have NTC's) in the trade. PC just re-signed both to lucrative extensions and it's not his M.O. to sign and trade so quickly.

I would chalk this up to two GM's enjoying conversation rather than potential trade partners as there is no one on Philly's roster that is first likely / realistic to be traded and second who fits the current and future needs of the Bruins (as in, obviously the Bruins would have interest in Giroux but there is around a 0% chance that they will be trading for him).

I hope not. Rinaldo is developing into someone quite useful. Besides, the Bruins have enough tough guys.

I'd give you Briere in a heartbeat, though. Especially if, like others mentioned, a 1st rounder is coming back our way. I figure he is getting amnestied after the season anyway by the Flyers.

I would offer Torey Krug to Philly for Tye McGinn. What do Bruins and Flyers fans here think about that?

It'd be tough to see Briere in a Bruins uniform. Please just take Knuble

Cap isn't an issue this year. If you preferred Briere were a pending UFA, the Bruins could buy him out in the summer when the cap does become an issue.

I wouldn't have given up a first for Gaustad. But Briere has more value than Gaustad.

I think it's a stretch to call Peverley's shiny new three-year 3.25m contract extension "lucrative." It's a bit pricey sure, but not by much.

And while you are correct Peverley's has NTC, it's only partial. Condition is he had to provide Bruins with 8-team trade list last Oct. 1. Next year same thing. In 14-15, it expands to 15-team list.

Gut feeling says he is moved by deadline, as he is one if few expendable guys on roster (though they love his versatility) and teams can use him to fill multiple holes (PP, PK, top-6, bottom-6).

Kelly had NTC with no conditions.

Lucrative in the sense that his previous deal was at a $1.325 million cap hit, which is a sizable jump. While his list may include Philadelphia, I just can't see the Bruins jumping to tack on a contract to double his cap hit with the cap crunch coming in the off-season. Other than Briere, which forward on the Flyers' roster could the Bruins realistically be targeting? Fedotenko? Knuble? If the Bruins wanted Knuble, they could've signed him a month ago and if they wanted Fedotenko, they could've signed him in the offseason and wouldn't have to give up assets at his expense.

I'm off an on in seeing Peverley moved. The logical side says he would be the best forward for the Bruins to move however the shortened season increases the amount of teams who believe they will be making the playoffs and will likely be buyers. This will drive demand up and supply down, meaning that the only teams that will likely be the suppliers are teams out of contention and rendering them less likely to be on Peverley's list of suitors. Essentially it's going to be a bunch of teams circling the bottom-feeders like vultures but in a seller's market. This makes for a very entertaining deadline with the possibility of little movement.

All I'm saying is that the likely move will be for an expiring contract and such player will garner prospects and picks considering the rocky road ahead for the Bruins in the offseason. I feel as though if the Bruins are going to move a player on an existing contract, it will happen in the offseason. This is honestly the year for the Bruins to go for it as next year's team will almost assuredly not be as talented as this current version.

I don't understand how ANY playoff team would not jump on a 1st for Briere... I guess if you watch just West Coast games, and pay no mind to what goes on in the Eastern Conference playoffs, but still..

What would Boychuk cost the Flyers? Seidenberg?

I could see it being kimmo.

I remember that chara went out of his way to praise kimmo during the asg saying he always admired the way he played.

Kimmo signing that extension might be a way to increase his value to another team knowing that he has 2 more playoffs in him.

And leave the Flyers with what defensively? I know he's getting old, but he's still the PMD we have and have no replacements.

We pretty much won't win any games without a PMD.

I think a lot of you may be thinking too big. I get the feeling that it will be more of a depth move and not a big time player move.

Bruins get Fedetenko
Flyers get Bartkowski

The Bruins get a 3rd line wing who has played well in the playoffs before, Flyers get a decent D prospect who just can't crack the B's lineup right now and unless they move players , he won't next year either despite being ready.

Makes sense to me, now watch it be a blockbuster

It makes sense that the Bruins would be interested in Briere as a rental, he's only owed $5 million total after this season so an amnesty buyout wouldn't be that painful in terms of cash, $833,000 a year for 4 years.

The Bruins would like to free up cap space for next year, so think in terms of rentals or a bigger cap hit going out than coming in for 2013/14. They can't really trade a defenseman without getting one back, and I can't see a top 6 forward being moved either. So to me, this is obviously about Briere.

There is only one possibility from this GM meeting: Briere goes north at deadline for cheap, amnestied after a cup push, back to Philly with a better contract.

Flyers lose all future first rounders in perpetuity for circumvention, Holmgren then finally realizes the worth of all of the 2nd rounders he'd traded away, Flyers never draft above the 3rd round again.

Briere shows up as a center on ESPN; but I thought he played more right wing? Considering the buyout option; I'd totally be on board with a 1st for him; or a 2nd a fringe prospect.

I like Chris Bourque, but no doubt that a third line of Kelly-Peverley-Briere would be a big upgrade, especially during the playoffs.
