    Bruins dangling Kessel as trade bait

    From August 2nd but still interesting to read - If he is actually requesting this much, i dont know if it will fly or not...I love his game but I think he really has to prove himself another year and work on his defensive game a bit more before he gets a pay day like that.

    Trade bait for what. If there has not not been a move yet there will be no move. Eklund now has Kessel to SJ, or Edmonton but these teams don't have the cap space and you can't listen to Ek anyway. You got your caption from the Fourth Period which is another rumor site alttle better but not to reliable either. PC will trade Kobie and Ference for picks to get Kessel when he is ready to come back and this BULL about Kessel being traded will finally stop.

    Re: Bruins dangling Kessel as trade bait

    I agree with “brunod” that the Bruins should trade Kobesew and Ference in order to clear cap space and sign Kessel.  Trading Kobasew makes sense because the Bruins are already deep on the right wing.  Both he and Ference have been injury prone as well.  In return they should try for a defensive prospect to fill Ference’s void.  Some players the Bruins should consider are Kris Russell (Columbus), Nicklas Grossman (Dallas), Matt Niskanen (Dallas), Kyle Quincey (Colorado), Thomas Hickey (Los Angeles), and Bob Sanguinetti (New York Rangers).  All these players are young and can develop well for the future.  The Bruins should then sign Kessel to a three year, $4,000,000 cap hit deal.  This contract for Kessel would be more than reasonable with the skill he's displayed thus far.  Kessel just needs to realize his day will come for a larger contract once he proves himself more.

    If you actually believe we "heard it hear first,"  you must have been living in a cave for the past few months.

    As much as I hate to say it, I personally think Kessel will get traded. I'm not sure Chiarelli is willing to trade multiple players to clear enough cap space to sign him. If you trade Kobasew & Ference, you trade 2 of the teams best contracts. Both of the contracts don't count a ton against the cap. When Chiarelli gave Morris $3.3 million, I think it signaled that Kessel isn't in his plans. After trading Ward, Chiarelli had enough cap space to possibly do a deal with Kessel. He didn't. He signed Morris instead.

    Re: Bruins dangling Kessel as trade bait

    Kessel will not be traded. We need his scoring touch. The only way Kessel would be traded is if by any miracle all our forwards are on pace to score 30 goals. That won't happen. So the Bruins will have 2 months to see who is expendable. Probably Kobasew, as for Ference he was one of the best Bruin's D before he got injured. He was a force and dominant. I remember the game agaisnt Dallas when he laid that crushing open ice hit on Ott and beat up Avery right after. If Wideman keeps giving the puck away and missing the net on 98% of his shots he could get traded especially if  Hunwick and Ference stay healthy. This way we could keep Kobasew who is a very good forward for us and played well on the Bergy line.
    KESSEL WILL STAY IN BOSTON UNLESS A MIRACLE HAPPENS AND ALL THEIR FORWARDS ARE SCORING GOALS PROFUSELY!!!!

    good call duinne everyone that was living in a cave thought Kessel would stay in boston - money talks, and the Bruins did not dismantle their CURRENT roster to satisfy Kessel.
