Bruins could deal D-man
By Victoria Matiash
Earning the opportunity to represent the Boston Bruins on the club's opening day roster, defenseman David Warsofsky may not be a member of the black and gold for long.
Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com suggests Warsofsky could be traded, once other Boston blueliners -- ie. Aaron Johnson -- get up to speed.
"... Don’t be surprised if Warsofsky’s name pops up in trade rumors soon after his arrival on the Bruins scene, particularly if injuries along the blueline open up some playing time for him to showcase his abilities ... Across the league teams are looking for spare defensemen in deals, and going eight or nine deep on the blueline while planning on injuries taking a bite out of their organizational depth. So NHL-caliber defensemen have rising value on a developing trade market, and Warsofsky might be better served on an NHL team where some open roster spots are up for grabs ..."
Even if the Bruins' blue line is hit with injuries, there are plenty of options -- Matt Bartkowski, Torey Krug etc. -- available in Providence.
