    Default Edler almost dealt to the Bruins

    If Kesler was dealt to Pittsburgh, Edler was going to Boston.

    According to http://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/20...75K/story.html

    Before Thursday’s game against Washington, general manager Peter Chiarelli disclosed on NESN that Philadelphia was assuming half of Andrej Meszaros’s $4 million annual cap hit.

    That’s because the Bruins, prior to Wednesday’s 3 p.m. trade deadline, believed they needed the space for another acquisition.

    President Cam Neely told 98.5 The Sports Hub the Bruins had a deal in principle for a player with term remaining on his contract. That trade was shelved, Neely said, because another deal did not happen.

    According to a team source, the Bruins’ trade fizzled because an expected transaction between Vancouver and Pittsburgh failed to take place.

    The Penguins had been pursuing Ryan Kesler. According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the Penguins were offering Brandon Sutter, first- and third-round picks, and a defensive prospect.

    Once the Canucks moved Kesler to Pittsburgh, they would have proceeded with their trade with the Bruins. The Bruins’ target could not be confirmed. But it’s likely they were targeting smooth-moving left-shot defenseman Alex Edler.

    Yeah, I'm guessing talks between Pittsburgh and Vancouver broke down when Gillis insisted on getting Pouliot as the defensive prospect in return. Shero was definitely going for the Sutter + 1st and 3rd + Dumoulin / Despres / Harrington approach; however, it seems Gillis was obstinate about receiving Pouliot instead.

    Too bad, that would've been awesome for the Penguins and Bruins ultimately. More fodder for the eventual East Finals everyone is already predicting.

    im guessing the defensive prospect wasnt pouliot otherwise the kesler deal probably wouldve gotten done lol.

    Yeah, Shero is not going to trade Pouliot. Gillis insisted. Talks broke down. I would bet a considerable amount of $$ that Pouliot is the reason why none of this happened.

    although i understand why pittsburgh wouldnt want to overpay, if you do overpay its for a guy like kesler cause he will easily make a difference in a playoff run (and for the next 2 seasons).

    edler has fallen out of favor here so i can see why they would explore a trade. this is assuming edler is willing to waive his NTC tho

    IMO, Brandon Sutter + two good draft picks + Despres / Dumoulin / Harrington is a lot to give up from an organization standpoint; but it's clear that Gillis wanted more out of the D prospect being sent back. Shero looks at Pouliot, especially given the weird "stroke" situation with Letang, as a guy who isn't expendable right now because of his long-term upside, and I think he was smart to refuse Pouliot.

    At the same time, I think Gillis was smart to insist on Pouliot. Despres / Dumoulin / Harrington are going to be solid "shutdown" type guys long-term, and although some people really like Despres' offensive upside, I just don't see it materializing in this lineup. Perhaps Gillis agrees with me, and wasn't sold on Despres either. Ultimately, I think that both teams had very good reasons for avoiding the proposed deals of the other GM.

    I thought the rumours were that Canucks ownership stepped in and blocked the Kesler deal.

    Would you really let a prospect like Pouliot get in the way of you landing Kesler?
