According to sources, Loui Eriksson seeks a contract with an average annual value between the high $5 million range and the high $6 million range, depending on term, while the Bruins will explore trading him if they feel they won'€™t be able to sign him. The B'€™s don'€™t feel they have to sign the free-agent-to-be before Feb. 29'€™s trade deadline, but if they feel there isn'€™t enough common ground to revisit later on, they will shop the 30-year-old right wing. Eriksson enters Thursday's game second on the Bruins with 38 points this season. For more on Eriksson and his future, click here to read Wednesday'€™s story with comments from Eriksson.
