Yep both popular guys in Boston so hard deals and not a sure bet with the no-trade clauses, but either one sharpens the team up.
I would love to see the B's obtain Byfuglien even though it would require Boychuk leaving, the veteran leadership is exactly what is needed for the current defense and Byfuglien would also be a major upgrade for the PP.
Not sure if this trade is going to happen but if it did this would be a major 'piece of the puzzle' for this Bruins team going forward.
Not as excited for the Marchand/Kane possibility as I don't see much of an upgrade there and feel Marchand has started to turn the corner on returning to last years level of play.
