Bruins Daily: Bruins, NHL Trade Chatter
NHL trade chatter was increasing as the NHL’s roster freeze went into effect on Dec. 19 and should pick up again when the freeze is lifted tomorrow. Will the Boston Bruins be part of that chatter?
That and the latest NHL news in your Boston Hockey Now Bruins Daily:
A common theme around plenty of Boston Bruins fans right now is ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ and that’s understandable considering the first half of the season that the Bruins have had. In that theme, my Boston Hockey Now asked if the Bruins really need to acquire a rental player like Patrick Kane on the NHL trade market? I’m of the belief that if the price is right, it can only make a really good team even better.
