Chuck Kobasew has been traded to the Minnesota Wild.
Boston will receive a 2nd round draft pick in 2011, forward Craig Weller and the rights to unsigned prospect Alexander Fallstrom who is currently playing college hockey at Harvard University.
Kobasew has yet to score a goal and has tallied just one assist through his first seven games. Kobasew has been largely ineffective thus far, and has simply had a dismal start. I applaud the Bruins front office for making this trade.
Craig Weller RW, who has skated in just 95 NHL games over 7 seasons will most certainly be sent to Boston’s AHL affiliate in Providence.
Alexander Fallstrom is described as a prototypical power-forward who uses his size and strength to sniff out tough goals in front of the net.
All in all, I think that the Bruins are doing a great job of adding draft picks and young prospects without sacrificing any of their current talent. Bravo!
