Clock is ticking on Loui Eriksson

What to do, what to do, if you’re the Boston Bruins and pending unrestricted free-agent winger Loui Eriksson remains unsigned into Monday, as the clock ticks down to the 3 p.m. ET trade deadline?

As far as I can ascertain, Bruins GM Don Sweeney has prepared for all three options on the Eriksson front: get him signed to an extension; keep him past the deadline and hope it’s worth it to make the playoffs and maybe win a round or two, and also use the extra months to get him signed; or trade him.

To me, the final option seems the most likely, even for a team that’s sitting in a playoff spot.
