Most Important Area In Need Of Upgrade?

The Boston Bruins have a couple of targeted areas for improvement this summer.

The team desperately needs somebody to fill in on leftwing, some help on the blue line and possibly another backup goaltender.

As for the backup goaltending position, Zane McIntyre might be the solution, however last year he didn't do too well when called upon by the Bruins and might need another season in the AHL before he can be Tuukka Rask's full time backup. The B's will probably need to go for a veteran backup, who's more reliable than Anton Khudobin.

The spot the Bruins need the most help is definitely on the second line at left wing. Tim Schaller did great in stepping up at times, but David Krejci needs a proven NHLer to really shine.

The solution probably won't be found on the free agent market, the B's could take advantage of the Tampa Bay Lightning's tight cap situation and make a push for young winger Jonathan Drouin. However Drouin will probably cost more in trade than the B's are willing to give up.

The B's really need some help at the blue line too, however we saw how pretty much everybody stepped up down the stretch for the B's.

The Bruins need a second line left wing, what would you be willing to give up to land a proper 30 goal scorer at the position?
