Latest News Suggests Bruins Should Trade Significant Asset This Summer

Published May 3, 2023 at 4:28 PM

The Bruins' off-season is filled with uncertainty, especially if Patrice Bergeron and/or David Krejci decide to retire. A recent report indicates that this could lead to a substantial reshuffling within the team.

Marc-Olivier Cook from DansLesCoulisses speculates that should either or both of these key players retire, GM Don Sweeney might contemplate trading Brad Marchand.

Time for a Core Overhaul?

''This has me wondering if the Bruins might choose to explore the market for Brad Marchand as the club may soon enter a rebuild.''

''At 34, the forward still has good value, and if he's made available to the other 31 NHL teams, teams will call. It would be a great opportunity to add picks and prospects, especially after Don Sweeney paid top dollar to acquire some players at the latest trade deadline.''

Personally, even if Bergeron and Krejci retire, I don't envision the Bruins parting ways with a franchise pillar like Marchand.

Though the aging core's time is running out, Boston still boasts talented players such as David Pastrnak, Charlie McAvoy, Pavel Zacha, Taylor Hall, and others to lead the charge.
