BREAKING - Calgary reveals asking price for Lindholm regarding Bruins interest

The Boston Bruins are facing a monumental challenge as they seek to fill the enormous void left by the retirement of their revered captain, Patrice Bergeron.

Recent trade rumors have connected the Bruins to the Calgary Flames, with their sights set on Elias Lindholm as a potential candidate to address the gap. However, a source interviewed by Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey Now reveals that the Flames' asking price for Lindholm is substantial.

According to the source, "If the Bruins want Lindholm, likely [Jake] DeBrusk," explaining that the Flames are seeking a scoring winger to compensate for the loss of Tyler Toffoli in a potential trade deal. While DeBrusk could be the primary target, there might be additional pieces involved in any negotiations.

Considering the high demands from the Flames, the Bruins could encounter challenges in securing the deal. Consequently, they may turn their attention to existing players on their roster, hoping they can rise to the occasion and fill the void. Players like Pavel Zacha or Charlie Coyle could be considered to take on the role of centering the top line if the Bruins are unable to acquire a new No. 1 center before the 2023-24 season.

Given the Flames' firm stance on Lindholm, it's understandable why the Bruins are exploring alternative strategies to bolster their forward lines. The search for a worthy successor to Bergeron's leadership and skill remains a top priority for the team as they gear up for the upcoming season.
