Another year, same issues for the Boston Bruins. As has been a problem in seasons past, Bruins general manager Don Sweeney has tried to fix the secondary scoring but has been unable to do it.

Last season, he acquired right winger Ondrej Kase from the Anaheim Ducks, but he had a rough beginning in the regular-season last year and in the playoffs. This season, Kase has been out since the second game of the season with an upper-body injury. Nick Ritchie was also acquired from the Ducks in a separate trade and has eight goals this season, five on the power play. While his offensive production has been nice, it is not most likely sustainable for long periods of time.

Nearly half of Boston’s goals in 2021 have been scored by the top line. While it is nice to have a line produce as much as do, they can’t do it all by themselves.

The Bruins are barely holding on to the final playoff spot in the East Division, by one point over the Philadelphia Flyers. If the Black and Gold are going to hold onto that lead over the second half of the season and get into the postseason, then Sweeney needs to make a deal for a………. wait for it……… a second-line right wing for David Krejci.

Boston has some players on their current roster that other teams could in interested in, as well as some prospects. Like all teams, the Bruins have some prospects that could be deemed “untouchable” as well.

Here are some players that the Bruins should not be afraid to use in a deal to solve some of their issues, mainly secondary scoring.
