Bruins Will Be 'Very Active' In Trade Market
Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli and president Cam Neely has suggested that the team doesnt require a significant overhaul, but it looks like they might still be very active on the trade market, according to CSN New Englands sources.
Although the Bruins have been very successful over the last four years, it might not be practical for them to proceed without making a significant trade or two.
Theyre in a somewhat difficult cap situation in part because Jarome Iginlas bonuses will eat into their 2014-15 budget as punishment for them exceeding the 2013-14 ceiling.
After factoring in that cap penalty and the savings they get from Marc Savard being on the long-term injured reserve list, Boston figures to have around $9 million in cap space with about a quarter of their roster still to fill.
