If you could ..

Be placed in Mike O'Connell's shoes for these days leading up to the trade deadline and into the playoffs .. What transactions would you make and what would the lineup resemble on game one of the playoffs ..
(Be realistic)

1) Jillson + 2 Round Pick -> Car - Jeff O'Neill
2) Mid Level pick -> Phoenix - Tyson Nash
3) Signing of Yushkevich (free agent)

Lineup
O'Neill - Thornton - Murray
Knuble - Bergeron - Samsonov
Axelsson - Rolston - Corazzini
Nash - Green - Lapointe

Boynton - Yushkevich
Gill - McGillis
O'Donnell - Slegr

I have to agree with you on your selections.

1. O'Neill - Bonafide goal scorer (plus, went to the Gary Roberts school for working out, look at him before he played with Roberts and after)

2. Tyson Nash - Great agitator, something the B's are lacking

3. Yuskevich - Decent stay-at-home D that wont cost the B's anything but cash, and probably not a great deal at that.

Even If we signed Yushkevich he probably would never wear a B's Jersey. He hasn't been signed yet because every team know that as soon as they sign him he'll have to go through waivers and would get snatched up.

I like your ideas. But, it would probably take a first round pick rather than a second round pick to land O'Neill. Otherwise, that's an interesting proposal. I actually made a proposal that was exactly like yours, and a Cane fan told me that the pick would have to be a first round pick and possibly a midlevel prospect to land O'Neill.

I like Nash's game. He's a pest and will fight if he has too, but he can play more minutes than Doull. But, Phoenix is probably going to want to hold onto Nash because Phoenix is very much alive in the playoff race. I don't know of any Nash type players off the top of my head that are out of the playoff race. Scott Nichol perhaps?

Yushevich is a good defensmen, who like Slegr last year, I have no idea why no one signed this guy in the offseason. It still puzzles me. He made his salary was in the 3.5-4 million dollar range, which is not terribly expensive. The only snag is that Dmitry is playing for a Russian Elite team and cannot be signed by an NHL team until his team is eliminated from the playoffs. How well his team is currently doing I do not know. If his team were to be eliminated, he would first have to pass through waivers, which at this point I really don't think he would go through unclaimed. The Rangers would claim this guy in a second.

Otherwise, those ideas would be great for the Bruins.

Here is where the B's need to get creative again like they did with Green. They can set things up where Pittsburgh signs him and then they complete a previously agreed upon trade for a pick or lower prospect. Pittsburgh gets something for doing relatively nothing and the B's get their guy without having him need to go through waivers.That is if this is allowed.

Where's our most consistantly best d-man Morrisonn?
Since coming up as a regular he's got 1g / 2a / +5 and the B's are 9-4-1....

Do you really think he should sit or go back Providence?

I believe his rights are owned by Philly. Doubt they'd do this for the Bruins.

You're probably right, I was working under the assumption that he was an UFA.

Personally,

I believe it'll be one of the "slow-foot-brothers" traded. Due to contract status, I believe the most likely to be traded would be Dan McGillis, but O'Donnell and Gill will carry some value as well.

One of those 3 will be shipped, and the youth retained. This team is setting up to head into a new era (by the looks of it), and Jillson, Boynton, Morrison et all will be the foundation to lay the bricks (Jonsson, Girard, Stuart, Jurcina) upon.

Due to the way the team is (mis)constructed, MOC really needs to flip one of the slower vets, for a transistional, fleet of foot Dman.

I also could see one of Rolston, or Murray peddled, simply due to UFA, and an opportunity to shake it up heading into the playoffs.

Zamuner, Huml and Zinovjev are the most likely candidates for a throw in.

Just a gut feeling, but if it comes down to needing to trade one of the young guys (other than the prospects), he'll probably pick status quo.

Otherwise he'd need to get some youth back.

What about swinging (some far fetched trades) something like this:
jillson and hilbert for brewer
gill and a 2nd for norstrom
(mcgillis and a 3rd for vrana) - not for this year

our d would be:
norstrom brewer
boynton morrisonn
slegr odonnell
...i like it and i 'think' the trades are reasonable. could the trades work? would you rather those defenseman than what we have right now?

Norstrom a solid Blueliner, who is vastly overpaid by L.A.
I believe he's at around 4.5 a season.
Too rich for JJ's blood.

Jillson, Hilbert to Edmonton for Brewer.
Kutlak, 2nd rd pick for Sydor.
Gill, Rolston and Huml for Jokinen (would assume FLA would then move Rolston).
Peddle McGillis to whoever will have him.

Thornton - Samsonov - Murray
Jokinen - Knuble - Bergeron
Green - Axelsson - Lapointe
Donato - Samuelsson - Grosek

Brewer - Sydor
Boynton - Morrisson
O'Donnell - Slegr
Moran
