In response to gord11's comment:
Those four possible spots could receive an upgrade if the deal was there. See ya Subban!" - 'Not-A-Shot'
I realize that this is a comment designed more to make waves than sense.
Bruins would be upgrading to what, exactly? Where you want to see them? What aren't they doing that you'd like to see them doing?
The Bruins are first in their division and will be first in the Conference after tonight. They have been in the thick of the race from the get-go and most nights are missing 3 to 6 regulars. Their depth is atounding and reassuring.
Kelly's not going anywhere; Julien LOVES him, Spooner's not going anywhere - he's playing great and he's dirt cheap. Fraser? Soderberg? Caron? Thornton? Miller? Johnson? Ok, but what do these guys fetch you? Other than more guys just like these guys?
You would really trade Malcolm Subban to upgrade your 3rd line?! Your 4th line?! Why?
I could see an upgrade at the trade deadline - some kinda rental, if necessary, that wouldn't have to include Malcolm Subban - why now? (besides, right now, Malcolm Subban is of no use to anyone looking for an NHL-ready goalie)
The B's could upgrade any of the third line players with the moveable assets they have.
That should answer 99% of all of your questions. The other 1%, well, life goes on.
