...but he's still in college...
Honestly, I think this will be the only defenseman the Bruins land prior to the trade deadline. They could really use some help on the back end, but so could everyone else and I just don't think Peter wants to get in any bidding wars.
Tim Thomas will still be a Bruin after the dust clears and Teemu Selanne will NOT be a Bruin. These are just things people like to talk about because it's more fun than talking about acquiring the rights to a college d-man.
Get ready for Raffi Torres! I really think this will be about all the Bruins do before tomorrow's deadline. I still want Alexei Ponikarovsky, but I think too many teams want him and Peter will get outbid. Same idea for Ray Whitney. Hence Raffi Torres.
If the likes of Jordan Leopold, Denis Grebeshkov and Andy Sutton are commanding 2nd round picks on the market, Brian Burke will certainly get more than that for Ponikarovsky and this Bruins fan does not think Peter will pay more than that.
