Over the last week talk is really starting to heat up regarding the Boston Bruins and trade rumors.
We've heard Jimmy Murphy and Bob McKenzie both connect the Bruins with St. Louis Blues forward Brayden Schenn.
Now another NHL insider has connected the two.
TSN and The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun is the latest during his appearance on TSN Tradecenter:
“Former Flyer Brayden Schenn is drawing interest around the league,” LeBrun said on Insider Trading. “That’s not surprising because as we’ve told you, the St. Louis Blues are in full listening mode. They’re unhappy with how their season has gone and general manager Doug Armstrong has not put a lot of untouchables on his roster. Obviously all the kids are untouchable but he is listening on a lot of his core guys. Schenn is one of them.
“Now Armstrong doesn’t have to make that kind of move before the Feb. 25 deadline, these are some moves that can be done in the summer. But teams, notably a team like the Boston Bruins, are keeping an eye on a guy like Schenn.”
Schenn would definitely help the Bruins' secondary scoring needs and is versatile as he can play either wing and center. He currently has 24 points in 38 games this season after registering 70 points in 82 games last season.
