There are numerous rumors that the Bruins are interested in trading for San Jose forward Ryane Clowe. Clowe, 30 years old, is having a terrible year, with no goals and 9 assists in 25 games. He is not really a point machine or a goal machine for that matter as his career highs are 24 goals and 38 assists for 62 points in the 2010-2011 season.
98.5 the Sports Hub talked about Clowe this morning stating that even though he is having a bad year, maybe a change in scenery could help him emerge. 98.5 the Sports Hub also noted that Swede, Carl Soderberg's playoffs are over, so he could potentially join the Bruins now.
Now what is the asking price for Clowe?
According to ESPN Boston's, James Murphy, it's a 1st round pick and prospect that the Sharks want in return.
I know the Bruins have strong interest in Ryane Clowe but asking price is 1st rd pk and prospect from what I am told. Too high.

If that is true, then I say ...
