Hearing Ondrej Kase being traded to Boston

what could we possibly be getting in return from Boston that is worth something that they would give up??? McAvoy??? that'd be a bit lopsided/someone they probably want for their playoff run lol i guess....picks and Backes??

If we get a #1 for someone always hurt, this is a good trade.  I love Kase,  but he's just not the same player this year

 
See above. It is a #1

Prospect going to Anaheim is Axel Andersson

Axel Adnersson

Skilled defenseman who skates well. Has interesting offensive upside, with very good passing skills and the ability to lead the rush. Strong puck mover and plays well on the man advantage. (EP 2018)

6'0" / Weight 185 lbs

First round pick, David Backes and a prospect to Anaheim
 
Also important to note: the Bruins are retaining 25 percent of Backes’ remaining contract. So the Ducks are only on the hook for about $3 M in real dollars next season on that contract.

 Baffled that we moved Kase. Young, was starting to play great. We basically traded Kase for Axel Andersson. Do not like

and a #1.  He hasn't played well all year and is hurt again from a hit.

Are there any conditions with this 1st rounder? good to have a 1st rounder....but man...it's Boston's first rounder...that's gonna be 30 or 31....

If you look at Marleau’s cost to dump it was a first. 
Cap dumping Backes for a late first rounder 

then getting Axel Andersson for Kase straight up essentially. Boston wins this all day. Kase finally found his groove this year as of late (same with everyone on the team essentially).

I like Kase but I can see the upside here.

We add a right side defenseman (another Swede FYI) who should hopefully be ready for the NHL in a season or two. We also add a first round pick (hopefully Boston are out in the first round lol). Kase has had so much injury trouble and honestly his production seems to be heading in the wrong direction.

They could definitely lose to Tampa in the second round.

If Kase can’t stay healthy then yeah sure, but if he returns to any bit of the form he has last couple years, we lose a dynamic young forward and replaced him with David freakin Backes

Also, just so we can get some perspective...Kase has turned out really well and was having an off-season (i think). super sad to see him go, but Bob basically just turned a 7th rounder into a 1st-rounder and a mid-2nd rounder that's already showing promise. promise in a position we need help in....that's not bad!

and we got Backes!...he's neat!

It’s not the worst trade in the world. Getting a RHD is pretty big. And hopefully Boston gets bounced as early as possible. Just hate losing Kase, especially because it seemed before he got elbowed in the head he was playing really well.

Very true. Both of those teams look SCARY good. That'd be a great series. Especially with Kase...Boston looks gooooooooooooood.

Is Backes gonna be playing? I’m not sure what Boston has been doing with him, is he just hanging out like Eaves/Kesler or is he gonna be suiting up?

He's not injured. Boston assigned him to the AHL but Backes didn't want to report, and the Bruins agreed not to force him. He also had a NTC so he would have had to agree to the trade to Anaheim. I'm guessing the plan is to put him on the 4th line. He would likely have only agreed to the trade if he were getting another chance to play in the NHL.

So that doesn’t really clear a path for Sprong or Sherwood. Unless BM moves Grant and Backes takes over on the fourth line.

Kase is always hurt.  Guy doesn't keep his head up. I think this is a great trade just for the pick.  Business deal both ways.  Kase was little cheaper than Backes with same contract term, plus Ducks get a pick and a prospect.  Part of Backes' salary was retained by Boston.

Nice of the Bruins to not force the demotion.  They could have suspended him and saved the salary cash.

Yes, classy move for a veteran for sure. They were basically paying him to sit at home.
