In response to Chappy28's comment:
More and more this kid looks to be a solid offensive prospect, maybe even top prospect overall. 2 goals, 1 assist last night for Providence. Don't get me wrong, I like Spooner and was impressed in what he did on his call up, but seems to me that Koko has good vision as well, but can actually put the puck in the net. Spooner seems like a Marc Savard type who will put up 4 assists for every goal he scores.
I also think that Koko's ability to play the wing makes him the more logical choice to keep around. With Soderberg, Krecji, and Bergeron down the middle, I just don't see where Spooner is going to fit on our team. Smells like trade bait.
In general seems like Spooner, Koko and Griffith all have some value
Bruins are not going to trade any of them if they are not even 22 years old yet. Since Bruins are struggling offensively in most playoff games in the last two years, it is better off to keep these three guys. Remember, Bruins could trade Marchard or let go Iginla. If Bruins are so loaded with defensemen, I would surprise that they would try to trade some along with maybe McQuaid who is an often injure proned player.
Dont worry these rookie guys will not be traded!![/QUOTE]
Thats why Koko was included in the Iginla debacle last year. They're all on the table, Chappy. Btw I say trade Koko and Spooner, both, if its for a player like Perry or Horton. This team needs a top line offensive talent with speed for Krejci's line.
