It is getting shut to the deadline, and the Bruins are even now in a little bit of a bizarre spot. They’re firmly in playoff position and are a “good” team, but they are clearly a action or two powering the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team they’d have to go by way of to get everywhere occur June.
So…do they make a small transfer created to bolster the latest roster, or do they make a main splash and actually “go for it”?
If you imagine Darren Dreger, they are wanting far more towards the latter.
Dreger appeared on TSN 1050 in Toronto this early morning and had lots to say about the Bruins.
He included that he’s heard the Bruins fascinated in absolutely everyone from Toffoli and Dzingel to Jeff Carter, declaring that he thinks the Bruins are an precise contender if they can increase some secondary scoring punch, adding that it is some thing Don Sweeney has been wanting for because the offseason.
He cited depth in the Bruins’ prospect pool as a explanation a youngster could be out there for a trade:
“They’ve got two or 3 pretty equivalent younger forwards, like Heinen, Bjork…there is 3 or four of them that they could element with,” he reported. “These are great players, I indicate, players that you’d want to keep on to in a excellent world, but the Bruins are in it to acquire it. They experience like they are created to contend for the Stanley Cup ideal now.”
“They just would like to increase a minor little bit far more,” he finished. “They’re keen to element with the belongings, be it draft picks or some of the young items.”
WELP. Clearly Dreger is not a fortune teller, but he’s pretty plugged in. Is this some thing that excites you about the deadline, or fills you with impending doom?
By the way, Dreger included that he thinks the Bruins “flat out have the edge” about Toronto in a probable playoff series, which is daring to say on Toronto radio. Nice.
Thanks to Nichols on Hockey for very first sharing the radio link.
