There have been five or six key players linked with the Boston Bruins as we move towards the trade deadline.
The majority of the names mentioned are players that may be available to fix the need for a right winger on the Boston Bruins’ second line.
Jake DeBrusk has picked up some form lately and David Krejci continues to be consistent in his performances, even as a 35 year-old. Lately they’ve played with Karson Kuhlman, but the feeling is an upgrade may be available.
Perhaps, not discussed as much is the cost of said upgrade but that’s a hurdle that the Bruins’ GM, Don Sweeney will no doubt be able to handle. He has seldom overpaid in trades, after all.
The only other position the Boston Bruins have rumored to be wanting to shore up is a bottom-pairing defenseman that plays the game with a bit of play-off grit and toughness.

Internally, Jeremy Lauzon has shown that he may be able to fill that role, even if he found himself rather unjustly suspended recently. However, the Boston Bruins seem intent upon adding a little more experience than the 21 year-old.
Connor Clifton managed to step in and claim the role last season, preventing the need to add anyone on the blue-line, maybe Lauzon can be this year’s version. Likewise, Clifton is nearing an injury return and might well be the guy himself too!
Last year, the trade deadline pick-ups of Charlie Coyle and Marcus Johansson worked out perfectly. With that in mind, we look through the players most likely to join the Boston Bruins and rate their chances of success:
