Is This The Only Reason Sweeney Hasn't Made A Trade Yet?

The Boston Bruins are riddled by injuries and the team needs help, there's no doubt about it.

For the time being, Bruins general manager Don Sweeney has looked for help from his AHL affiliate the Providence Bruins.

He signed grinder Ryan White to a PTO, however after a couple of weeks, White was eventually released from the PTO.

Even if White had signed, he wouldn't be a solution to the team's power play struggles.

With Noel Acciari, Ryan Spooner, Adam McQuaid, David Krejci, David Backes and now Brad Marchand injured, NHL Insider Bob McKenzie believes there's one simple reason Sweeney hasn't made a move yet.

“So I think Don Sweeney wants to make a trade. He wants to upgrade his forward group. He wants to upgrade his defense. But he hasn’t really even seen what his team is like healthy.

“So as I said, there’s a whole bunch of teams that yeah, they’re interested in making a move. I just don’t get the overwhelming sense that that they’re ready to make it at any cost, and we’ll get something here in the next day or two.”
