Will Ryan Spooner Be Sacrificed At The Deadline?

The Boston Bruins are red hot, the second hottest team in the NHL to be exact and look like they'll definitely be in the "Buyers" side of things come NHL trade deadline day. 

The Bruins will likely be in the market for a right handed winger and possibly a defenseman. While some help on the blueline might have seemed to be the priority just a little while ago, many believe its now help on the wing. 

Boston has plenty of great young players in the pipeline however it's highly unlikely that general manager Don Sweeney is willing to move any up and coming assets for a rental. 

Instead, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald believes Ryan Spooner is a perfect candidate to be moved to bring in another player. If the team wants to land any kind of significant player, they'll have to move a contract. 

As mentioned though, the Bruins farm system depth looks so good right now that the team might not even make a move to begin with and draw upon the farm system instead if necessary. 

While Sweeney is likely checking out the trade market, the B's are playing so well right now that if the team does make any moves, it'll likely come on deadline day and not before. 

Do you think the B's should make a trade at all?
