The Boston Bruins trade rumors continue to percolate around the NHL and on Wednesday we began our series on potential Bruins trade targets.
We started with what’s become a familiar trade target of Bruins GM Don Sweeney. Also, while the Bruins continue to shop the exclusive bargaining rights to defenseman Torey Krug, another team has let it be known that they too have an offensive defenseman available for the right price.
That and more in the latest BHN Puck Links:
Will Bruins Trade For Anderson Finally?
Since the 2018 NHL Trade Deadline, Sweeney and the Bruins have tried to trade for Columbus Blue Jackets winger Josh Anderson.
