Glen Wesley turned into three first round picks (Jonathan Aitken, Sergei Samsonov, Kyle McLaren).
Aitken played three games for the Bruins (and a few hundred in the AHL) before hitting unrestricted free agency. Samsonov had a few good seasons and a few forgettable ones before being moved to Edmonton for Mary Reasoner, Yan Stastny and a 2nd round pick (Milan Lucic). McLaren played for the Bruins for seven seasons before moving him and a fourth round pick to San Jose for Jeff Hackett and Jeff Jillson.
The Bruins traded Jillson for Brad Boyes, let Hackett go to UFA after a season and a half, let Marty Reasoner walk at the end of the season in which they'd acquired him, traded Yan Stastny for a 5th round pick (Dennis Reul), and moved Brad Boyes for Dennis Wideman.
Wideman was packaged with a 1st and a 3rd for Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell. Reul is a UFA and is playing in Germany.
So basically if we never traded Cam Neely to the Bruins Nathan Horton wouldn't have been concussed admiring his pass and the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals never would have turned in the Bruins favour.
