Boston’s Huge Retool an Offseason Highlight

In Uncategorized on September 23, 2015 at 9:22 am

With just days to go before one of the busiest trade days of the year, the Rookie Draft, action is heating up. So what’s happened so far?

Of the 9 trades made so far this offseason, 6 have involved the Boston Banshees. Not content with a group that got bumped in the first round, the Banshees have shipped out an amazing 7 roster players and 3 picks, including a pair of second rounders.

All that for a haul that includes, among others, a starting goalie in Roberto Luongo, talented wingers Marian Gaborik and Kyle Okposo, and young centres Sean Couturier and Charlie Coyle. Key contributors like Marian Hossa, Ryan Callahan, and Brad Richards were among the casualties.

Meanwhile, the Vancouver Night Train shored up its blueline with the acquisition of Chris Tanev (for a first and prospect Ryan Murphy) and veteran Dan Boyle (for a 2nd), and Ice Harbor sent Scottie Upshall, Roman Polak and a 3rd to Denver for Josh Bailey.

Check out all the moves right here.
