I have a feeling that Chia wants a depth Defenseman like Brett Clark out of Tampa Bay. His plus/minus stinks but he is a decent guy for depth. His cap hit is fine and I don't think he would cost more than a 5th or 6th round pick this year.
With all the injuries we have at Forward I think the B's should target PA Parenteau on the Island. Parenteau has made it known he wants to test the UFA waters so its better the Isles get something vs. nothing. I think he could cost as much as a 2nd round pick, but only if he resigns with the B's, otherwise he is worth a 3rd (both likely next year).
If Buffalo wants to sell we would be smart to go after Paul Gaustad, but I dont see that happening.

Reason: I said Chris Clark but meant Brett.

Zach Hamill would be on my list, but he's already passed through waivers four times with no one picking him up for free (never mind in a trade).
I also don't expect any of the Bruins top four prospects (Hamilton, Knight, Spooner, and Khokhlachev) to be traded in any deal without a huge name coming back. Part of the reason why I don't expect any of them to be dealt is because I don't think the Bruins will nor should go after any big fish.
