  1. I would like to see the Bruins explore a trade for Mrazek. Detroit doesnt need two highly paid netminders with their roster. And need cap room for AA. Boston needs a backup that can win some games for them this year, unlike last. Great to see Boston resign Pasta! But they haven’t made any additions this offseason. Simply relying on the youth to come in and succeed could see us not watching playoff hockey this year.
