  1. Cernak, Erik D 24
    Killorn, Alex LW 31


    Roussel, Antoine LW 31


    Van trade No 9 draft pick and Roussel to Tampa for Cernak and Killorn.

    Why Vancouver do this?

    Vancouver will get top 6 forward and top 4 d-man instantly to improve roster next 2 years and beyond.

    Cernak can use Roussel's cap space

    Killorn can use LE's cap space.


    Why Tampa do this?

    Tampa will solve their crazy cap issue and can easily buy out Roussel last year's contract. They will love to have top No 9 draft pick to improve their prospect pool.






    Standard fantasy categories include goals, assists, plus/minus, power-play points, shots on goal and hits for skaters. Value has been quantified based on factors including but not limited to past production in the regular season and Stanley Cup Playoffs, line combinations, power-play usage, injury history or concern (INJ. for injured or DTD for day to day), age, contract status (potential 2021 unrestricted free agents: *; potential 2021 restricted free agents: **) and overall upside for next season. Positions indicate each forward's fantasy eligibility for this season in season-long leagues this season. These rankings are a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Rob Reese.

  3. Head coach Bruce Cassidy hopes Taylor Hall stays with Bruins

    By Zac Wassink  |  Last updated 6/14/21

    Several days after Boston Bruins forward Taylor Hall suggested he could take a discount to remain with the club, coach Bruce Cassidy told reporters he hopes the impending free agent will strongly consider spending at least one full season with the organization.


    "I think the benefit of being here for the full season would be just to watch how hard a guy like Brad Marchand practices and plays every day of the season," Cassidy said Monday, according to Amalie Benjamin of the NHL's website. "Brad will take his occasional maintenance day, but other than that, when he's on the ice it's 100 percent. Competing against whoever in practice, second effort in the games. 


    "I think that can only help a player like Taylor that is a little further ahead and has been through some of that and has had some seasons like 'Marchy' where he's an elite player. And if he's going to get back to that level, I think watching Marchy every day will be a huge benefit for him."


    Hall joined the Bruins from the Buffalo Sabres ahead of the April trade deadline and tallied eight goals and six assists across 16 regular-season games with Boston. He went on to notch three goals and two assists in 11 playoff contests. 

    Boston fell to the New York Islanders in the second round of the postseason. 


    "I think the next playoffs he's in he'll be better prepared for it," Cassidy added about Hall. "I hope it's with the Boston Bruins. He did a good job with us. He's a good player, he's a good person. He works hard. I think he knows what he wants out of his career now. He's been in a few different places. He's made some money. And hopefully both sides can make it work."

    The chance of a 2nd round pick making an impact is normally about 20 to 25%. This year, we have no real data on most prospects as they haven't been playing due to Covid. Normally, I wouldn't give up that high a pick to get rid of LE, this year, I would consider it.

    Guys.... just friendly reminder, LE has no trade clause in his contract.
