(Proposal) BOS / VAN

Recommended Posts

So I’m trying to think outside the box and I think I have a decent win/win scenario and cap benefits. 



JT Miller (5.25) UFA 2023

Tyler Myers 3M retained (3M) UFA 2024

8.25 total incoming cap



Brandon Carlo (4.1) UFA 2027

Charlie Coyle 1.1M retained (4.15) UFA 2026

2024 1st round pick

2023 2nd round pick

8.25 total incoming cap



Boston is a veteran win now team with the right adds.  JT Miller will pick up the scoring slack in the absence of the rat and will be the perfect persona to re-sign long term with the likely departure of Bergeron and Krejci after this season.  Myers fits the Boston makeup on the back end, and at a more palatable price. He will have better matching support partners on LD and have opportunities on the PP behind McAvoy. 

The cap is an even swap for this season. Boston eats more $$ over term on 30 year old Coyle… a poor man’s Miller? Coyle has size, battle, 15 goals and 45 points in him. Right shot C/W that should fit well and a solid playoff get. Carlo being the trophy addition… Right shot 25 year old physical top 4 shutdown D.  Canucks are desperate for this kind of player. Good contract with good term. 
Bruins add picks to pry Miller and ditch the Coyle contract. 

what say you Nuck Nation?

Well, here is my take on this...........


First off, well done for balancing the cap!


Personally, Boston loves their players, but a re-build is right around the corner. Bergeron on just signed for $2,500,000 for one season (He had 65 points, and was one of the very best defensive players in the league) So, I don't see Boston spending big money on Miller long term, especially with the rest of their crew starting to age out as well.


"IF" Boston was interested, I could see a Carlo and a 1st for Miller 50% retained....................maybe Lysell instead of the first, if Boston is not that high on him. Most probably the 1st, and Carlo................max!


I think we can do better from New Jersey, or anyone of 4 or 5  other teams.
