As NHL free agency approaches in just one week, the Boston Bruins are facing crucial decisions and exploring various possibilities. After their unexpected early exit from the Stanley Cup playoffs and the constraints of the salary cap, the team's management recognizes the need for changes.

A key aspect of their plans revolves around the futures of seasoned players Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci. The Bruins have given them the necessary time to make their decisions while also taking the required steps to shape the team.
Priority is placed on retaining newcomers like Tyler Bertuzzi and Dmitry Orlov, and the Bruins are actively looking into potential trade options. Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reveals that Calgary Flames forward Tyler Toffoli will be available for trade. Toffoli, aged 31, hasn't specified a preferred destination and remains open to possibilities, according to TSN's Chris Johnson.
If Toffoli is indeed traded, it would mark his fifth team in his 13-year career. He has one year left on his contract with a $4.25 million cap hit, based on a $3.5 million base salary, as reported by Spotrac. Toffoli boasts a Stanley Cup win with the Los Angeles Kings in 2014 and recently clinched his second gold medal with Team Canada at the IIHF World Championship. Last season, playing for the Flames, he tallied 73 points, including 10 power-play goals.
Many, including Kourtney Turner, wife of Boston Red Sox slugger Justin Turner, believe Toffoli would be a valuable addition as a winger under Jim Montgomery.
Justin Turner endorsed this sentiment by retweeting his wife's quote-tweet. Toffoli shares a close friendship with the Turners from their time together in Los Angeles, and he has shown a fondness for Boston in the past.
Ultimately, it will be up to the Bruins' front office to determine Toffoli's suitability for the team and decide what they are willing to give up in a potential trade for the talented forward.
