Rumours about a Bruins defenseman possibly being on the move

Published May 19, 2023 at 9:07

Despite their persistent efforts, the Boston Bruins were unable to find a new team for Mike Reilly throughout the season. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that they intend to reignite their search for a suitable trade partner for Reilly during the upcoming summer.

The Bruins face significant financial limitations with limited cap space as they enter the offseason, making the urgency to move Reilly and his $3 million cap hit all the more crucial. It's clear that the Chicago native is eager for a change of scenery, as he spent the majority of the season with the Providence Bruins due to the burden of his hefty cap hit.

Reilly has demonstrated his competence as an NHL defenseman, particularly in a bottom-pairing role. This could potentially attract interest from other teams. However, the stumbling block lies in the Bruins' need to sweeten the deal by including one or two draft picks, considering their well-known cap constraints.

Ultimately, it remains to be seen whether Reilly will indeed find himself on the move. A trade would likely prove mutually beneficial, allowing both the player and the team to address their respective needs and pursue their aspirations.
