Nathan Horton is a Boston Bruin; Renney New Edmonton Head Coach

Two major moves today in the NHL

The first: Nathan Horton is a Boston Bruin. He and another unnamed Panther are being traded to Boston for ONE Bruin. Seems to be a big deal.
Awaiting confirmation of full details but the move was revealed by Darren Dreger and Official NHL draft blog via twitter.
Alot of Rangers fans will be disappointed not to get Horton but looks to be a big deal which may have priced Rangers out anyway.

The Second move of the day is Ex Rangers Head coach Tom Renney taking over the reigns in Edmonton. Pat Burns has stepped down, more details of this surprising move are expected. Renney does have a track record with developing youth so not all that surprising given re-build mode in Edmonton.

UPDATE: full details: Nathan Horton an unnamed pick and Greg Campbell go to Boston for 15th overall and Dennis Wideman.
Maybe Boston dont take Fowler and go offence 3rd overall now Wideman in the fold?

    That means the price for Horton was Staal + 1st round pick.

      Kudos to Tallon for getting alot back for a guy that was blatantly being moved. As i suggested I think it may have become an Auction.
      B’s look good long term though.

    Boston only has $1.6 million in cap room to get Wheeler and a 6th defenseman under contract.

      they will get a minimum contract on D as a worst case scenario and i dont think Boston have finished making moves. Thomas to Tampa?

        Tampa doesn’t take that contract. Thomas is a $5 million cap hit, declining, and a 35+ contract.

          but he is still much better than Smith or Nittymiaki. And he’s not that in decline – look at his solid numbers. He was simply outplayed. If they can move some salary to Boston they’d do it. New England network also confirmed Boston had discussed a deal with both Tampa and SJ.

            I can’t see Yzerman committing $5 million to a goalie when he only has 5 forwards under contract.
