Bruins Trade Deadline Deals
-Acquired Brad Boyes and Andy Delmore from the San Jose Sharks for Jeff Jillson.
-Acquired Sergei Gonchar from the Washington Capitals for Shaonne Morrisonn, 1st round pick (Jeff Schultz), and a 2nd round pick (Michail Yunkov).
-Acquired Michael Nylander from the Washington Capitals for a 2nd round pick (Francois Bouchard), and a 4th round pick (Patrick McNeill).
-Traded Sergei Samsonov to the Edmonton Oilers for Yan Stastny, Marty Reasoner, and a 2nd round pick (Milan Lucic).
-Traded Paul Mara to the New York Rangers for Aaron Ward
-Traded Brad Boyes to the St. Louis Blue for Dennis Wideman
As you can see, the Bruins have not made a buyers move since 2003. The Samsonov deal was a sellers move and the two deals in '06 were somewhat lateral. 2007 was disappointing as some of the prices were low, and a body could have helped us against Montreal, but we were only fighting for 8th so it did not make sense to deal any assets that would help us in the future.
Another thing to note is how the draft picks did not really pan out for any of the teams aside from maybe Jeff Schultz, who is in Minnesota now. Lucic was our pick, but none of the picks we dealt have come to bite us in the ass. Obviously with this deadline, no one wants to see Kessel, Krejci, Bergeron, Wheeler or Rask go for obvious reasons, which is why guys like Jordan Leopold, Eric Cole, Derek Morris and Keith Tkachuk make the most sense for the club rather than Chris Pronger or Tomas Kaberele.
