Could Adam McQuaid Be Moved This Summer?

Boston Bruins' fans are anxiously awaiting the offseason as we'll likely see some tweaks made to the lineup. 

Bruins general manager Don Sweeney says he'd love to keep the lineup in tact however in the salary cap world it's highly unlikely. 

There's been plenty of speculation on what will happen to the left side of the Bruins defense with trade rumours swirling around Torey Krug, but Bruins fans should probably pay attention to the right side as well. 

Defenseman Adam McQuaid has one year left on his contract and at 31 years old, he'll likely meet the same fate Milan Lucic, Dougie Hamilton and Ryan Spooner met with their contracts winding down, getting shipped out of town. 

Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo aren't going anywhere and the B's could look to get younger on the right side as McQuaid's style of play and mileage bring question marks to how much he has left to offer. 

Between his low point production and cap hit, it's unlikely the B's get anything of significance in return for McQuaid, however considering the Bruins history with Lucic, Hamilton and Spooner, it's likely he's moved now before they lose him for nothing next year.
