Bruins 2012 Trade Deadline Moves

Continue the discussion of the Bruins trade deadline moves here. The last thread was closed with over 1,000 posts.

Only 7 days to go before the big road trip.

Lots of contenders looking at adding similar players very much like the Bruins need. This one is hard to call.

Certainly not Pouliot. He tries really hard. And he's CHEAP!

I don't believe that Iginla is leaving Calgary. But I've had numerous dreams about him in a Bruins uniform.

I have a feeling this will be the quietest and most boring trade deadline ever. Bruins don't make any moves. Too many teams still in it.

Phoenix - does anyone really believe
A team owned by the league and desperate for extra revenue from playoffs, sell its best forward in whitney? Stop dreaming, not going to happen.

Teams who will sell: Edmonton, maybe Anaheim, Columbus, Montreal maybe, TB, Carolina, Islanders...yipee

Don't mess with chemistry! He does try really hard though.

LEBRUN: First on the Bruins, there is no team more impressive in the NHL right now. How about 23-3-1 since October ended? I’ll have more in a blog later today when I preview Saturday’s Canucks-Bruins Cup finals rematch.

The Flames? They’re going nowhere. They’ve teased their fans with a few good stretches this season, but the fact is, they’re not good enough to make the playoffs in the Western Conference. This club is at a serious crossroads. The Flames need to identify their mission plan, their vision for the future, and act. They’ve got 13 expiring contracts, nine of them unrestricted free agents. The window will open this summer to change the face of this team. But I believe Feaster will begin to act before then and will try to sell off some parts before the Feb. 27 trade deadline. The most galling thing of all is that the Flames’ payroll is fifth-highest in the NHL. Look at what that’s getting them on the ice.

Iginla, as you mentioned, will be the sensitive play. Ownership, like the fans, believes he’s the most popular player in franchise history. That puts Feaster in a tough spot. He doesn’t want to be seen as the guy pushing out a legend. But dealing Iginla is the best and fastest way to start re-hauling this roster. But Iginla controls the shots. He has a no-movement clause and another year on his deal, earning $7 million next season. Yes, I believe the Bruins would have interest if Iginla ever became available, as would Los Angeles and several other clubs. He’s a winner, a leader and still a high-end performer surrounded by the right players. At the very least, there needs to be a meeting between Flames management, Iginla and Iginla’s veteran agent Don Meehan to discuss the future. I know it hasn’t happened yet.

Montreal isn't trading with the Bruins, so you can cross them off the list.

Price of NHL deadline trades soars

Here is a good article in USA Today about the escalating cost of trade deadline deals in a sellers market, asking whether the high costs are worth the effort.

The salary cap has created parity, and parity has created tighter races, which have turned the trade deadline into a seller's market.

Minnesota Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher has been aggressively reviewing his trade options for two months, and he often has been more troubled by the market than intrigued by it.

"It is not a big market in terms of the number of sellers," Fletcher said. "And second, the prices are very high. And historically, if you look, I'm not sure that 25% of these rental trades work out for the teams that are buying." Fletcher is still considering making a trade. "But you do wonder, even if you can do it, is it worth it?" he said.

Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke decided he wants to avoid deadline day shopping if it all possible because he thinks prices are always too high.

"Do a graphic for any year the math doesn't work," Burke said. "Fourteen to 16 teams add players. Prices are inflated, and there is one Stanley Cup parade at the end of the season. The trade deadline is a pit of quicksand."



The trade deadline worked out well for the Bruins last year. But this year will be tricky given the competition for the type of players that the Bruins need. Perhaps GM Chiarelli will sit this one out.

Just throw out ideas for the deadline

To Det
Corvo
prospect

To Bos
Stuart

Stuart from what i have seen in Det the last couple of years has really stepped up defensively and still has good offensive skills


To Cal
Hamill

To Bos
Babchuk

Babchuk plays a physical game and would be good to have on the 3rd pairing with Mcquaid


To Chi
Marchand
Boychuk

To Bos
Seabrook
Stalberg

Bos loses a little toughness but gets back a offensive defensemen

1: Only if no one in Detroit has ever seen Corvo play and/or the prospect is named Hamilton

2: If Calgary wanted Hamill they could have had him for nothing a couple days ago.

3: This is trading for the sake of trading.

this was the point of each trade

Trade 1- Really flips two players who are under performing this year while the Bruins get a player who they could possibly resign if Stuart turns his season around

Trade 2- Calgary wants to shed Babchuk's salary so they will basically take anything they can get for him since he right now is in the position Stuart was in with Bos last year

Trade 3- Maybe not that exact deal but something could be worked out involving Marchand and Seabrook as the center pieces

We need a d-man before we to anything offensively.


Get a dman and get Ray Whitney and call it a day.

Why would the Coyotes give up Whitney when they're in the hunt for a playoff spot?

Couple of points:

1- A New CBA will have to be re-sign so i doubt very much that we will see a lot of players with 1 years + on their contract being traded.

2- Not sure Chiarelli want to pay a Premium to acquire a guy like Ruutu.

3- Chiarelli got burned with the Kaberle trade. I'm sure he will be on his heels if there's a " close call " deal on the table.

4- Not sure that there will be an " impact " player available at the deadline. Carter is the " name " out there but his contract is tough to move...

That's not true. You can definately have Kaberle for a big centre prospect, your first and a conditional second. He's a proven cup winner!

I'm worried Horton's injury may be worse than what is being reported. IF so, we lose a significant top-6 player. Peverly has not proven to be capable of filling in wing slot on the Krejci line.

From what is being reported it sounds as if the market is insane right now, 'sellers' in complete control at the moment. Chia may have to look at another avenue, perhaps players currently not playing in the NHL (Satan!). Or over-paying for a big fish (Iginla?).

As bad as it sounds, standing put may be his best option. It isn't very encouraging when Kampfer & Caron are the B's extra skaters.. Cross your fingers the injury bug avoids Boston.

I`m not sure our old buddy Brad Stuart will be too enthusiastic about returning to Boston, wasn`t exactly smooth sailing there the last time..............water under the bridge??? Maybe but no way I see the Wings offering him for Corvo
