Bruins Daily: Krejci-Zacha; Barbashev, Karlsson, Meier Rumors
Could the Boston Bruins acquire an old Stanley Cup Final nemesis before the March 3 NHL Trade Deadline?
That, Bruins news, and the latest NHL trade rumors with under three weeks to go until the NHL trade deadline, in the latest Bruins Daily:
It was suggested here over a month ago, St. Louis Blues winger Ivan Barbashev would be a good target on the NHL trade market for the Boston Bruins. Well, apparently general manager Don Sweeney and his staff think so too because they are reportedly ‘very interested’ in the rugged winger who is set to become a UFA this summer.
Bruins forward Pavel Zacha has been one of the hottest players in the NHL for the better part of the last month. In a recent one-on-one with BHN, Zacha credited the mentorship of David Krejci for his recent success.
