What Boston’s Loui Eriksson could fetch in a trade

You’re only worth what they’ll pay for you. And if the Swede hits the trade rental market in February, he could fetch the Boston Bruins a heftier return than any other movable forward eyeing unrestricted free agency this summer.

No impending UFA has more points than Eriksson’s 38 this season. Only two — Arizona’s Shane Doan (16) and Tampa’s Stamkos (20) — have potted more goals than Eriksson’s 15. But with the Coyotes and Lightning in playoff position, we’d be shocked if either team shopped its captain by Feb. 29.

Kyle Okposo, Andrew Ladd, Jiri Hudler, Radim Vrbata, Milan Lucic, Mikkel Boedker, Frans Nielsen — Eriksson is outproducing them all, which leaves the Bruins in a tricky situation.
