BRUINS ACQUIRE VET STEMPNIAK Monday, February 29, 2016
The Boston Bruins acquired winger Lee Stempniak from the New Jersey Devils for a fourth-round draft pick in 2016 and a second-round draft pick in 2017.
What does it give the Boston Bruins?
The Bruins get a sound veteran in Stempniak, who should play a top-nine forward role for Boston down the stretch. He is probably a rental but could make a short-term impact.
What does it give the New Jersey Devils?
The Devils' recent slump likely sealed Stempniak's fate, as the team decided to sell instead of keep the roster intact to try to make the playoffs. They did very well with the return.
Fantasy Impact
Stempniak was playing a lot in New Jersey, something that won't happen in Boston. Therefore, his fantasy value takes a major nose-dive here. It's time to sell high here.
