With one Bruins’ trade target pulled off the market already, could another fall off on Monday, a week before the NHL Trade Deadline?
Could former Montreal Canadiens and current Columbus Blue Jackets winger Max Domi make sense as a playoff rental for the Bruins?
That and all the latest NHL trade rumors in the latest Bruins Wrap:

Another potential trade target and playoff rental for the Boston Bruins, Dallas Stars defenseman John Klingberg, is definitely off the NHL trade market.
Would Columbus Blue Jackets winger Max Domi make sense for the Bruins as a depth playoff rental before the NHL Trade Deadline?
The third line for the Boston Bruins continues to build chemistry and produce. On Saturday, Craig Smith stepped up with two goals and Charlie Coyle scored the game-winner.

Finally, with only four days until St. Patrick’s Day and seven until Parade day in two of my favorite places, Holyoke and Montreal, it’s for your Irish track of the day. This actually came on my Chieftains Pandora channel as I was writing this Wrap and it immediately made me think of those loved ones being separated by the war in Ukraine.
