KariyaSakicAnderson Posted January 2, 2015 Share Posted January 2, 2015 Bos: Matthias, Stanton, Sestito Van: Eriksson, Bartkowski, conditional 2nd 2016 ( if Bartkowski doesn't re-sign) There has been a lot of speculation about an upcoming trade between these teams, Benning mentioned he isn't interested in trading Kassian, which is a good thing, I know that Kass is still an important piece to this team. Boston isn't going anywhere this year and they want/need to shed salary. This will help them get a bit more tougher which they'd like but most importantly save close to 3 million and get a cheaper asset in Stanton who is RFA, with Bartkowski being UFA he would cost them a lot more to re-up. Matthias is also UFA but I think Bos can re-sign him for 2.5 for a year also give them a chance to re-sign McQuaid For the Canucks this will help upgrade the second line and infuse some more offensive which is sorely needed. Does this help the team be SC contenders it's hard to say, I feel that any team that makes the playoffs has a chance. If it doesn't work out, maybe they can trade Loui with our 1st to move up in the draft or allow Benning to make another move which he wouldn't be able to otherwise.
