I mean honestly. Kessel isn't 'Bruins material.' - Not gritty enough. So, let's trade him away for (in part) a draft pick which we use for a another guy who apparently isn't 'Bruins material' either so we can acquire another guy who... er, you know...

Lets go with the crazy.........

How about we flip Bernier in a package for Schneider. Package Reimer for Letang, and sign Horton, LeCavalier and Ference to deals? ;)

It's going to be one of those summers . . . a lot of rumours and, my guess, very little that actually comes to fruition.

Here's hoping that out of all this fervor the Leafs can pick up a good player. ( or 2 ??)

No reason why we can't sign Horton and Clarkson and LeCavlier. No problem.

I wonder if the 5.75 cap hit Seguin is due to start earning this season makes the Bruins nervous.

It's really not all the surprising when you really think about it, though. The cap is set to drop $6M. Right now, you have a situation where there are a lot of sellers and not that many buyers. Tough to get a deal done when both sides are looking to shed salary.

its still fun to see the B's go off the deep end today...and the canucks do a 180 on their goaltenders...and see the pens sweating it out with letang...and the lightning having to buy out their captain, not to mention the buyouts in philly.

I'm sure I'm missing some of the other circus acts in the nhl right now but it's nice to see the leafs sitting pretty right now.

Imagine if Seguin was traded to Toronto, what would Bruins fans chant then?

@RenLavoieRDS: Can Daniel Aldredsson play in another city than Ottawa next season ? I've been told yes, but his priority is to play for the Senators. #RDS

Really Renaud? Off the the ridiculous things that have rumoured...

Kevin Paul Dupont ‏ of the Boston Globe & Mail has also said on twitter that the Bruins should target Alfy. I can understand maybe if Ottawa had cap issues, but they're in a great position there. Melynk will give him whatever he wants.

Not 100 per cent yet but looks like Nathan Horton will NOT be back with BOS. B's talking trade and Tyler Seguin's name has been discussed.

That's interesting. Why would they entertain a Seguin trade I wonder?

Cause he's a major league scumbag!

It's probably unwise to read anything in to the fact that Seguin only had 1 goal in the playoffs.  It's a bit of a statistical fluke that he had 1.43% shooting percentage over a 20-game stretch.  He still had 70 shots on goal, which is a good rate and shows good all-around skills.  Ovechkin, Kessel, Stamkos even (I believe without checking) have had 20-game stretches where they've scored just 1 or 2 goals.

If Boston was going to throw him away, I'd pick him up.
