Jaromir Jagr to Boston. I'm hearing two prospects and a draft pick.— Mike Heika (@MikeHeika) April 2, 2013
TSN's Bob McKenzie reported the names of the two prospects involved in this trade.
DAL will receive prospects Lane MacDermid and Cody Payne (Plymouth) as part of the Jagr trade with BOS.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) April 2, 2013
According to TSN's Pierre LeBrun, the draft pick going to Dallas is a conditional selection.
Apologize if this is already out there but the 2nd rd pick Dallas got in Jagr deal becomes a 1st rd pick if B's win 2 playoff rounds— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) April 2, 2013
This is a significant trade for the Bruins, one that makes them a better and deeper offensive team. After losing out on the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes to the Pittsburgh Penguins last week, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli needed to find a goal scorer in the trade market to improve his team's struggling offense.
Jagr was the best rental available ,and making this move was well worth the risk when you consider the fact that MacDermid and Payne are not two of the Bruins' top 10 prospects.
Let's examine why Jagr improves the Bruins' chances of winning the Stanley Cup this season.
