BHN Puck Links: Bruins Trade Talk, Sharks Could Be Fit For Laine



Torey Krug

The Boston Bruins trade rumors continue to percolate as a new team has entered the Torey Krug sweepstakes. Also, could the San Jose Sharks be a good dance partner for the Winnipeg Jets in a Patrik Laine trade? That and more in the latest Boston Hockey Now Puck Links!

Could Bruins Trade Krug To Kings?

The Los Angeles Kings have long coveted Boston Bruins defenseman Torey Krug and have explored what it might take to acquire the rights to exclusively negotiate with the unrestricted free-agent-to-be. The Florida Panthers, Detroit Red Wings, and Colorado Avalanche are the other four teams known to have expressed interest in acquiring the Bruins leading points producer on their blue line for the last six seasons. 

Could The Sharks Trade For Laine? What About Bruins?

Colleague and friend Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now wonders if maybe there’s a trade to be made between the San Jose Sharks and Winnipeg Jets? Peng suggests the Sharks see if some key Sharks and fan favorites could be enough to lure Laine away from the Jets. To this point, there have been no rumblings of the Bruins being in on Laine and that’s likely because it would take Charlie McAvoy being dealt to the Jets. 

Zito Off And Running With Panthers

Bill Zito wasted no time in getting to work as the new Florida Panthers General Manager. Zito already made a major trade since being hired on September 1 and he tells colleague George Richards that he’s not done. As mentioned above, the Panthers are in on Torey Krug.

NHL And NHLPA Deserve Credit

The NHL became the first sports league to award a championship in the COVID19 era and what they went through to do that deserves an immense amount of credit! Here’s a great look back at the 2020 Stanley Cup playoffs that culminated Monday night with the Tampa Bay Lightning hoisting Lord Stanley!

If Eichel is truly on the trading block , why couldn’t / wouldn’t the B’s dangle Pastrnak as trade bait ? I’ll take a franchise center over a soft sniper 7 days a week . Not to mention the combined age of Bergeron / Krejci is 69 years old .

Why would Krug have any interest in LA, When he said that he and his wife want to be near their families in Michigan. Fat chance i see LA as a contender anytime soon and Krug isn’t wasting his time in high taxed California. He’d want 7 x $10 mil to play for the Kings.
