Schneider in Black and Gold?

This from

BOSTON GLOBE: Kevin Paul Dupont recently reported of a "generally held belief" Anaheim Ducks GM Brian Burke could trade Mathieu Schneider to "add some scoring pop and trim payroll" now that Scott Niedermayer has returned to the lineup. Dupont suggests it's possible the Bruins might be able to land Schneider as Manny Fernandez's season-ending injuries have free up his $4.33 million salary from the Bruins books for the rest of the season.
Spector's Note: Burke has hinted he'd make a minor move after the holidays, so dealing Schneider wouldn't qualify in that department. It's possible Burke could still move Schneider but he hasn't given any indication that's his plan, and if he does move him it might be later in the season and closer to the February trade deadline when his salary for this season is more affordable.

My opinion:
The Bruins are clearly going to do something to bolster this team now that they have the cap space from Fenandez's season ending injury. Whether it's a defenseman or forward remains to be seen. Given the fact that the B's are currently 4th in the league, yes league, for least amount of goals against, I'd rather see them land a scoring forward. However, Schneider is a quality player and would certainly improve the club's blueline.

Seems like the Bruins needs are: Somebody who can kill a penalty, score goals, and win faceoffs (all three are areas where the Bruins are below-average to abysmal).

Stoll anyone?
