Bruins Wrap: Could DeBrusk Stay With Bruins? NHL Trade Rumors



Boston Bruins

Boston Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk is still on the NHL trade market and likely to be dealt before the NHL Trade Deadline. Is there any chance that could change or is his relationship with head coach Bruce Cassidy broken beyond repair?

The Boston Bruins avoided letting another blown lead in the third period send them to overtime in a 3-2 win over the Blackhawks Thursday as the pasta was served al dente.

That and more in the latest Bruins Wrap:

David Pastrnak made sure that another blown lead in the third period didn’t lead to extra time and bailed the Bruins out with the game-winner with just 17.2 seconds left in regulation.

The Jack Ahcan postgame media session after the win Thursday was one of those reminders of why we love hockey and sports. Refreshing, raw love of the game. Congrats to Jack on his first NHL goal.

Is the relationship between Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk and head coach Bruce Cassidy broken for good? Ray Ferraro gives his take to my partner-in-scribe at BHN, Joe Haggerty, and me.

Speaking of DeBrusk, he’s No. 8 on the TSN Trade Bait List and the only Boston Bruins player on the list of 50 NHL trade candidates.

Washington: Jaromir Jagr is supporting Ukraine and Alexander Ovechkin. Huh?

Colorado: Did the Colorado Avalanche get screwed by the officials in their 2-0 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes?

Vegas: So far, the biggest NHL trade this season has been the Jack Eichel trade back on November 4 and on Thursday, the former Buffalo Sabres captain and current Vegas Golden Knights center returned to Buffalo for the first time since the trade. He and the Sabres fans shared mutual disdain for each other during and after the game.

San Jose: What will the San Jose Sharks do before the NHL Trade Deadline? Our man in San Jose, Sheng Peng gives his take.

Montreal: Could the Montreal Canadiens actually find a taker on the NHL Trade market for forward Joel Armia? 

Vancouver: How is their sudden push for a playoff spot affecting what the Vancouver Canucks do before the NHL Trade Deadline?

Calgary: Remember when Calgary Flames winger Johnny Gaudreau was a constant on the NHL trade rumor circuit? Well, after a hat trick Thursday and the season he’s having overall, it’s hard to see the Flames moving the impending unrestricted free agent before the NHL Trade Deadline.


The current NHL trade buzz around the Toronto Maple Leafs right now focuses on goaltending but friend of BHN, Justin Bourne says that defense is a more pressing need.

If the bruins don’t trade Jake then he becomes a rental

You Boston “writers” sure have it easy this time of the season… milking the trade deadline for all it’s worth by scribbling daily filler “trade articles”.
Think you pretty much ‘traded’ every available player at this point.
