The NHL trade deadline is in one week. Three bargains for the Bruins at the 2022 deadline are thin. My issue is, with nineteen games left after the deadline, is it worth giving up a draft pick or quality player. At this stage, the organization needs a second_ line center and defense. In this post, we will review three players who would be a bargain for the Bruin.
Zdeno Chara/ Defenseman /Islanders
The towering defenseman is available. For the right price, he would be a logical solution with Charlie McAvoy. With a cap hit of 750,000, the Bruins would be a perfect fit. He would add a physical presence and bring toughness to a passive team.
At thirty_ eight years old, he is still productive. In 48 games he has 0 goals and 9 assists. The Bruins need more muscle on defense and his experience would be welcomed. The Bruins need a big body heading into the playoffs and Chara would be the perfect fit.
Another valuable piece that could help a team down the stretch. Has a ton of playoff experience and brings a needed toughness. Would be a great addition to a young defensive group.
At thirty _eight, he is still productive. In forty_four games he has 4goals and 17 assists. A hard_ nosed player who would be an immediate upgrade. With a cap hit of 6.75 million, he would cost you a low_round draft pick. A valuable player for any team.if they have the right player in return.
This player will not be a free agent until after the 2025 season. That means a team can have his services for two years. For 4.6 million dollars, he is the best deal on the market.
This player brings a toughness that the Bruins lack. A left_ shot defenseman he would be a home run in a trade. The Bruins are front runners to land his services. In 47 games this year, he has 7 goals and 14 assists. With decent size 6’2″ 215 pounds, Chychrun would be a welcomed addition in Boston.
With the season winding down, the Bruins are sitting in fourth place in the NHL Atlantic Division. As of late, the club has been getting balanced scoring from all four lines The team lacks toughness. Surviving in the playoffs requires patience and toughness. Any of the players mentioned above would be a valuable acquisition to the roster.
