Boston Hockey Now: In case you missed it over the weekend, there was a crazy Boston Bruins NHL trade rumor surrounding Bruins defenseman Hampus Lindholm that was shot down here by numerous NHL executive sources. The rumor, that stated that the Bruins are ‘obsessed’ with defenseman Dmitry Orlov, so much so that they’re having ‘buyer’s remorse’ on defenseman Hampus Lindholm after just one season on his eight-year, $52 million ($6.5M AAV), and have made him available on the NHL trade market, despite the fact their best defenseman last season was Hampus Lindholm.
That rumor lost even more credence on Saturday, when news broke that Orlov will be hitting the NHL free agent market on July 1.
