Today’s the Day

Happy Draft Day!

There will be a flurry of rumors, picks, rumors, squabbling, rumors, bad TV timing, and more rumors. I will do my best to update BSB with any credible rumors, but I won’t be around mid-day (12-3), or anytime after 7pm, so I highly recommend you going over to Blueshirt Banter. Jim is in Montreal at the draft, and will be live blogging everything he hears.

In the mean time, enjoy this rumor:

The Boston Bruins are in pursuit of Tomas Kaberle and a top 10 pick in today’s draft.

Sources tell TSN the Bruins have offered restricted free agent forward Phil Kessel to Toronto in exchange for the Leaf defenceman and Toronto’s No. 7 pick in the draft.

That’s a steep price for Kessel. But can you really pass on a 22-year old winger with one of the best wrist shots in the league?


  1. Mike Axisa says:

    Well look at that, the salary cap went up $100,000.

  2. Mike Axisa says:

    That’s quite the haul for Pronger. Lupul, Sbisa & 2 first rounders? Damn.

  3. Dave says:

    That’s overpaying.
