Offseason YouTube Masterpiece Theatre: Bruins try to trade up for "The Swede" at the '06 Draft

Embedding was disabled for this must see video of what goes on down on the floor on draft day. It shows a conversation between Bruins Interim GM Jeff Gorton and Washington Capitals GM George McPhee. Gorton is offering the 5th and 37th picks for the 4th pick. The Bruins were looking to pick "The Swede" (Nicklas Backstrom), but the Caps were not at all interested and ended up selecting Backstrom with the 4th pick, while the B's settled for Phil Kessel at #5.
