As the trade deadline looms closer and closer, it becomes more apparent that the Bruins will be forced to make a move before Monday’s clock strikes 3. This time last season is when Chiarelli pulled off separate trades that landed Chris Kelly and Peverley in Boston, two essential pieces in the clubs postseason run. While G.M. Peter Chiarelli said that he would like to keep his defending champion’s line-up intact, injuries to both Nathan Horton (indefinite) and Rich Peverley (4-6 weeks), have forced him into looking at alternative options.
Reports surfaced a few weeks ago that it would take David Krejci, Dougie Hamilton, and Tuukka Rask in order for the Bruins to pull off a Nash trade and there is absolutely no way that Chiarelli pulls the trigger on something like that. If Nash is traded before the deadline, he will most likely end up in a Rangers uniform.
