In a time of desperation, the Boston Bruins find themselves facing challenging circumstances. Following their disappointing performance in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, General Manager Don Sweeney has a daunting task ahead this summer.

The next question arises: What steps should the Bruins take moving forward?

Fortunately, the Chicago Blackhawks present an opportunity, as they possess a surplus of draft picks this year, which could be readily utilized if the right conditions are met. Tab Bamford, a writer for Blackhawks Bleacher Nation, recently proposed a potential offer that would allow the Bruins to alleviate a $6 million financial burden while acquiring a late-round draft pick.
Given the Bruins' salary cap limitations, they lack significant leverage in negotiations with other teams. Consequently, exploring the possibility of trading Taylor Hall for a late-round draft pick appears sensible within the current circumstances in Boston.
While the Chicago Blackhawks are currently in a rebuilding phase, this doesn't preclude them from augmenting their roster, especially with the addition of the first overall draft pick. Signing Taylor Hall could serve as a temporary solution, someone who not only offers protection to Bedard but also serves as a mentor for him during the next 1-2 seasons.
The Blackhawks might be able to capitalize on this opportunity, as the Bruins are in dire need of relief from their predicament.
