Official Boston Bruins Trade Rumours Thread

I realize that we have many speculative threads about the players we want Chia to trade for. As we approach the deadline however, I think that it is important to have a thread where we can post all legit trade rumours. By legit I mean only those rumours with valid links.


I know that other reported rumours have been posted in various other threads, please feel free to post them in this one.

I will edit this OP as links to Bruins rumours are provided. (LISTED NEWEST TO OLDEST BELOW)
__________________________________________________ ___

Will the Bruins be active? It's hard to imagine them messing with the forward roster. But for defensive insurance, various sources say Boston might pursue Flames D Scott Hannan or D Cory Sarich, Hurricanes D Bryan Allen or D Jaroslav Spacek, Jets D Johnny Oduya, Islanders D Milan Jurcina or D Mark Eaton, or Coyotes D Adrian Aucoin.
http://proicehockey.about.com/od/rum...uary-14-12.htm


The Boston Bruins are said to be interested in Hal Gill. The Boston Globe reports the veteran defenseman is on the Bruins’ pre-trade deadline “shopping list”.
http://nhltradereport.com/bruins-hav...l-gill-421770/


Haggs: Pavel Kubina asked to waive his no-trade clause by Tampa Bay Lightning per reports. Definitely a guy on the B's blueline radar (Twitter)


Kevin Paul Dupont: Not that it's a big surprise, but have confirmed that BOS is on Nash's "OK'' list. Given kind of treasure CBJ seeks, do not see fit.
https://twitter.com/#!/GlobeKPD/stat...75616898875393 (Twitter)
Bob McKenzie: "The Bruins may be interested in Rick Nash"
http://iphone.tsn.ca/tsnpodcasts/BobMcKenzie_021412.mp3 (Audio Link)




Kevin Paul Dumont of the Boston Globe: The Bruins could look at Hurricanes defenseman Jaroslav Spacek and forward Tuomo Ruutu. If the Ducks make Bobby Ryan and/or Corey Perry available, the Bruins might be interested. For Ryan it may take one of Milan Lucic or David Krejci and prospect Doug Hamilton.
http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/...acy/?page=full
Kevin Dupont on Twitter: All I Know is I've been led to blv Ruutu, Spacek high on Bruins radar. Guessing roster player, R1 pick for Ruutu. 4th rnder for Spatchoman.


Sportsnet: Bruins amoung other contending teams really "hounding" Shane Doan
http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/trade..._coyotes_doan/ (Video link)



The Sens, Preds, and Bruins are possibilities for Jason Blake.
http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Eklun...titsyn/1/42001


Bruins, Rangers, Sharks interested in Ray Whitney
As per LeBrun on Insider Trading tonight.
http://watch.tsn.ca/clip616534#clip616534 (Video Link).


LeBrun: Yes, I believe the Bruins would have interest if Iginla ever became available
http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/i...s-trade-iginla


Craig Custance looked at what the Edmonton Oilers might do at the trade deadline, suggesting the NY Rangers and Boston Bruins would be very interested in Ryan Smyth if he were to agree to be dealt...
http://insider.espn.go.com/nhl/blog?...e-deadline-nhl
http://www.ottawasun.com/2012/02/04/...e-up-for-smyth
http://blogs.edmontonjournal.com/201...a-possibility/ (Haggerty)


OTTAWA SUN: Bruce Garrioch believes Teemu Selanne has to decide if he wants to finish this season with a non-playoff team like the Anaheim Ducks or accept a trade to a Cup contender, citing sources claiming the NY Rangers, Sharks, Bruins and Red Wings have made inquiries into Selanne’s availability.
http://www.ottawasun.com/2012/01/21/...in-a-contender


According to ESPN, Tuomo Ruutu is reportedly looking to sign a contract extension with his current team. The Finnish forward was rumored to be one of the Bruins' targets for the Feb. 27 trade deadline.
http://www.nesn.com/2012/02/report-h...extension.html


Murphy says “I’d keep an eye on some upcoming unrestricted free agents such as Jaroslav Spacek or Kurtis Foster. Another defenseman to keep an eye on who could be available, should the Islanders continue to falter, would be Mark Streit. He would be a perfect puck-moving defenseman for the Bruins.”
http://nhltradereport.com/bruins-loo...enseman-42866/


NESN suggest Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli may be tempted to take advantage of the nearly $3 million in salary cap room, and add another key piece this season. Potentially the franchise forward for the Columbus Blue Jackets, Rick Nash?

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.

Ryan Smyth is meant to be a Bruin IMO. He would be an absolute beast in the playoffs (playing for a contender) and a perfect leader.

I agree about Ryan Smyth, but I'm not sure I can handle watching him cry again

big fan of smyth, not sure if he'll leave edmonton though, or he might do a tkachuk type wink wink thing and resign with them this summer

i can't talk about jason blake without breaking the forums rules on profanity

iginla would be great but even moreso than with smyth i don't know if he'll approve a trade

I'm sure the Oil would not want to take money back in a Ryan Smyth deal, and the Bruins can absorb his cap hit outright, whereas the Rangers cannot.

so what would the asking price be for Smyth?

A prospect, low pick and cash?

Probably a 1st and a 3rd or a 1st and a prospect.

I know this was said in jest, but that is EXACTLY the kind of guy I want on the B's. You know a guy is loyal when he cries about having to leave a terrible team. Smyth is still a solid player, defensively responsible and tough. I think he has the potential to be the biggest steal of the deadline acquisitions, provided Chia can work some magic.

Not a rumor but rather a wish.
If Whitney nor Smyth can be gotten by the Bruins at the deadline then my wish would be for big Buff out of Winnipeg. Dustin Byfugilen can play both defence and forward and makes an impact at both positions. If we are looking for depth, why not kill 2 birds with one stone ? We have the cap space, the picks, the prospects...I would simply love to see him here.

I don't think Winnipeg would trade him and if they did the price would be too high for the bruins, IMO.

He would definitely make a great Bruin, but I agree with you Hooper, I think he stays in the West if moved

Byfuglien pounding on the Canucks again, I could live with that

Would anybody do Hamilton for Byfuglien straight up? I know some might jump the gun and think it'd be an extreme overpayment, but Byfuglien would fit perfectly into the Bruins system. He's big, he has a howitzer of a shot and he is very physical. Imagine Chara and Byfuglien pairing? Insane. Not to mention Prospects are never a 100% guarantee and with Byfuglien you know exactly what you're getting.

Just some food for thought..

His weight concerns me, he could drop from 265 to 245 and still be just as effective, but be much quicker and agile.

Although I'm not so sure I'd do that trade. Hamilton is looking like a home run, but like you said its not a lock

If they did, this team would have some epic ragers with Seguin, Marchand, Lucic, Corvo, and Byfuglien. It would be a shirtless dancing, shoe throwing, woman groping/assaulting and dui'ing good time!

I could go for Iginla. That seems to be a good move in the short and intermediate term. It's not like he's 40 and his legs are going to fall off next year so it could help us on more than one cup run.

No way. Dustin does some things well, but at the end of the day he is basically the hockey equivolent of a DH. He is not a good defenseman, and not a forward.
