If Boston does not defeat Ottawa Saturday afternoon and thereby misses the playoffs, Dennis Seidenberg may have played his last game as a Bruin.

Seidenberg who is recovering from a lower-body injury will not suit up for Saturday's matinee and if the Bruins lose he will not have the opportunity to play in the post-season. The veteran is a prime candidate to be traded this summer as he has two-years left on his contract at $4 million per season. That is likely more than the Bruins want to pay the 34-year-old who is on the downside of his career especially when the team has many prospects who can fill his spot. One issue is that the Bruins will have to deal with is the buyout Seidenberg's no-trade clause. Stay tuned.

The Bruins hope to get him back in the fold in the final week of the season, but his status is uncertain.
