Insiders admit that the Bruins were actually contemplating which of the two deals to make when a determination was made that adding both players could actually happen.
Leaving Boston includes Kyle Okposo, Marcus Johansson, Greg McKegg and Ryan Malone. While Kyle and Mojo were tagged as the future of the franchise, the Bruins felt the chance to add two superstars was worth the sacrafice. "Adding Vinny and Jeff is really exciting for this team, we've been struggling alot this season so we felt the time was right to change our direction". The Bruins now have 30+ games to turn it around. They currently sit in 9th place and will try to secure a playoff spot going forward.
