The Bruins recalled defenseman Matt Lashoff and Matt Hunwick from Providence. The Bruins have a lot of cap space right now, making the oppurtunity for a deal likely. Bergeron will likely be out for the 2007 calendar year. I expect him to miss the rest of the season likely. The Bruins could sign Danny Markov, who has an out-clause in his Russian deal. The Bruins main problem though is offense, so a trade for a scoring winger would see probable. The Bruins could make a pitch for Marian Hossa. The Bruins are in a bad situation injury-wise. This could derail the team and ruin their season.
