Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins are on the hunt for a right-shot defenseman, but what about Jakob Chychrun?

Are the Toronto Maple Leafs the softest team in the NHL?

That, more Boston Bruins, and NHL news. Also, the latest in NHL trade and free agent rumors in the latest Boston Hockey Now Bruins Daily:

Boston Bruins

The battered Boston Bruins defense – minus Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo – showed plenty of fatigue and was a discombobulated mess in the 7-5 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.  As my partner-in-crime here at BHN pointed out, yes it was just one game, but the warning signs are there with Carlo out indefinitely and McAvoy gone until December.

Haggs’ column prompted yours truly to do some digging and the Boston Bruins are one of a plethora of teams in the hunt for another right-shot defenseman, but could they also be in on left-shot Arizona Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun?
