Who Could The Bruins Trade

from the Worcester Telegram & Gazette,

Phil Kessel’s stock recently has plummeted in Boston, so maybe he’s a candidate, but that might be a move the Bruins would regret someday. Sturm, Savard, Murray and Zdeno Chara reportedly have clauses in their contracts that either bar trades or restrict them only to certain teams.

And if you deal Savard or Sturm, where does that leave your already-lame offense? Murray’s trade value, frankly, is limited by his age, salary ($4.15 million), and recent spotty production. Kessel, though the limitations in his game have become glaring recently, still could develop into a superstar in this league, and there are enough ex-Bruins already flirting with the NHL All-Star team right now, thank you.

That brings us back to Axelsson, whose name pops up as trade bait whenever the Bruins have a need.
