BHN Daily: Would A ‘Jake For Jake’ Trade Work For Bruins And Canucks?

Published

on

NHL Trade

Boston Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday against the New York Rangers but he’s also returned to the NHL Trade Rumor circuit.

Why hasn’t a Tony DeAngelo trade taken place yet?

So what’s behind the Bruins’ third period comebacks this season?

All that and more in the BHN Super Bowl Sunday Daily!

 

In the latest NHN and BHN ‘Off The Record’, the Bruins are once again looking into what it would take to acquire Vancouver Canucks winger Jake Virtanen who has been a healthy scratch more often than not this season. With Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk off to a slow start as well and still searching for that consistency with the B’s. Could a ‘Jake for Jake’ trade make sense? 

Also, why haven’t the New York Ranger been able to unload defenseman Tony DeAngelo besides the fact he’s a major distraction to teammates wherever he plays? (Boston Hockey Now)

Former Boston Bruins forward and current Toronto Star columnist Dave Poulin thinks DeAngelo will get dealt and get another chance but warns young NHL hopefuls to learn a lesson from DeAngelo’s questionable choices off the ice. (Toronto Star)

Speaking of an NHL trade, per friend of BHN Dominic Tiano, as of Sunday, the Bruins will have $14.4 million in cap space for the April 8 NHL trade deadline. (Twitter)

So apparently the secret behind the frequent third period comebacks by the Boston Bruins is the Drago approach? (Boston Hockey Now)

The Bruins just had four more games postponed and rescheduled thanks to a COVID outbreak with the Buffalo Sabres. There’s been plenty of questions as to who’s to blame for that and some other outbreaks and some players are questioning the way the league is handling their COVID protocol. (New York Post)

Former Bruins goaltender and one of the main reasons the Dallas Stars came within two games of the Stanley Cup last season, Anton Khudobin was sent home for disciplinary reasons this weekend. (NHL)

Former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is going for his seventh Super Bowl ring tonight with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Toronto Maple Leafs forward John Tavares admires the way Brady handles success and still has time to dedicate to his family. If only Brady could’ve helped bring Tavares to the Bruins three years ago when they were trying to sign him. (TSN)

Speaking of TB12, today’s Murph’s Music Pick Of The Day goes out to him. Thanks for the six Super Bowls you brought to this Patriots fan, Tommy!

Please no Jake for Jake. DeBrusk is an extremely underrated winger his upside is greater than Virtenen’s. Someone really needs to crack the whip with that boy. He either starts to contribute or bench him

BBORR

I wouldn’t trade DeBrusk for 2 Virtanens

Sources, Jimmy?

He makes it up.

[…] Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey Now: The Vancouver Canucks have made forward Jake Virtanen a healthy scratch more than once this season. Boston Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk has had a slow start to the season and has been inconsistent. […]

Have you lost your mind? Ya let’s trade a 1.5WAR player in DeBrusk for a .3WAR player in Virtanen, how idiotic can you get? Please stop!!!

Yessir

Ya how about Bjork for Jake Virtanen TOPS….this is clickbait

M.C.

Yes, waste of space talking this nonsense

Not a huge DeBrusk fan, but no on this trade. Virtanen is NOT an upgrade over JDB.

[…] could choose to trade Virtanen in the hope of receiving DeBrusk in what has been described as a “Jake for Jake” deal. Both players may initially enquire about the move in order for their 2020-21 season to get […]

Makes no sense. JDB may be inconsistent, not contributing at the anticipated rate, but he has shown that he can. Charlie Coyle and Craig Smith (although not for lack of trying with Smith) are also underperforming. Virtanen has yet to show he belongs in the NHL. Only reason would be a salary dump for the Bruins if they really thought JDB was toast. This ‘trade’ does NOT benefit the Bruins on the scoresheet where it matters.
