The Bruins are, for the most part, a young talented team. I believe the future is now, not 3,4 or 5 years down the road. The Bruins, unlike most contenders have the cap-space, prospects, and picks to offer teams for top-end talent.
I agree 100% that the likes of Kokhlochev, Spooner, Krug, Subban, and Knight are high profiled and coveted prospects. However, you have a young nucleus at the NHL level that has already won a Stanley Cup and are arguably just a piece or two away from making it back to the finals.
There is no denying that PC is in a prime position to aquire not only one but two high profile guys along with a depth player before the deadline. Am i saying just get the sexy names? No. What i am saying is that if the guy "Fits" your system and is able to contribute right away then go out and try and make a deal.
The asking price for Morrow is a young D-man plus a draft pick. Calgary is asking for one roster player, prospect+draft pick. Both deals are there to be had IMO. Could i be dead wrong on my assumptions? No Doubt. Im no economics major like PC is and I only spit out suggestions as educated as i can using the same resources as the next hockey loving fan.
Can PC hit a grand slam this deadline and go for it all? Abosolutely. is he going to? We will see.
If i lived in a fairy-tale world this is what i would:
1st rnd pick
2nd rnd pick
These proposals could be absolute garbage for all I know but it would be my starting points.
You have to give up something to get something and now is the time to do it.
