As the clock ticks down to the March 21 NHL trade deadline, Boston Bruins social media debates the idea of the team reacquiring former Bruins captain Zdeno Chara.
While that seems like a fantasy, who are some real contenders to acquire the defenseman who has now played more NHL games than any other NHL d-man?
Could the Toronto Maple Leafs solve their blue line issues and acquire a center in the same trade?
That and more in the latest Bruins Wrap:

Did Nathan MacKinnon get away with abuse of an official? Sure seems that way, and one has to wonder if that was Brad Marchand taking a two-hand swing with his stick at a linesman what the punishment would’ve been?
